This is the third in my set of four designs for the Hogwarts Houses. It features the house heraldic motif (a ‘lion rampant’), and a house cheer (‘Roar Gryffindor’). The fairisle border and foot pattern are designed to be evocative of the medieval origins of the Hogwarts Houses.

You may purchase the full set of four Pride sock patterns (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin) for the price of three. Simply add all four to your cart and enter the code SLYTHERIN at checkout.

I used shades 0061 (beet) and 0043 (canary) in Lang Jawoll for the socks pictured. Shades of red and gold in any other sock/4ply/fingering yarn may be substituted. I also highly recommend using knitting-in elastic in the cuffs to enhance the staying-up power of the socks! In the UK Jawoll sock yarn can be bought online from Artyarn.

NB: This is not an official, licensed Harry Potter product and is not intended to be perceived as such.

I have completely overhauled the house pride sock patterns, so that each pattern is now fully graded for three sizes - small, medium, and large. The socks are sized to fit up to 30½(35½:40½)cm/ 12(14:16)” calf circumferences and 21½(24:26½)cm/ 8½(9½:10½)” mid-foot circumferences.
