Gryffindor Pride Socks
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.
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.
