This pattern was designed exclusively for the Oh Loops Harry Potter KAL 2017 and the pattern is exclusive to those who purchased the Prefect Kits until the end of the KAL.

This pattern will be available for purchase from January 2018 once the Harry Potter KAL by Oh Loops has ended.

What you will need:

Yarn – 100g Sock Yarn (approx. 365-400m / 400-440 yds) Sample knit in Oh Loops Yarn on the Bachmann Base (100% Superwash BFL) in the Mr Rumple Colourway.
Needles – 2.25mm or 2.5mm (US 1 or 1.5) on a Long cable for magic loop (I suggest 40” / 100cm for two at a time knitting).
Notions – Stitch Markers if you wish to mark the beginning of the round or pattern repeats. I also use a progress keeper to keep track of my row count and how many rows I have done (this can also work to mark the right side of your work).
Gauge – Approx 8 sts/inch in stockinette
Size – Socks are sized in a Small (Medium/Large). Sizes are based on foot circumference and not length as you knit the sock as long as you need to in order to fit the recipient. Please also note that socks need to have about 1-2 inches (2.5-5cm) of negative ease in order to provide a nice snug fit around the foot without being too baggy. Further, socks will loosen up over time and with wear so personally I prefer a nice snug fit at the start to reduce this effect later.
- Small size will fit a foot circumference of approx. 8-9 inches,
- Medium for a foot circumference of approx. 9-10 inches,
- & Large for a foot circumference of approx. 10-11 inches.
