Reminiscent of the elvish land of Rivendell from “The Lord of the Rings”, this sock is fun to knit and looks beautiful in a variety of colors. I suggest a pale color in solid, semi solid or very subtle painted yarn. I have also seen it knit in dark rich colors which were also very beautiful. Stephanie Pearl McPhee, the Yarn Harlot, knit this sock in a delicious purple color which was quite wonderful too. This is an intermediate level sock pattern. It is knit from the top down, and is now available in 3 sizes.
The Rivendell sock was originally part of a collection of socks from “The Eclectic Sole, socks for Adventurous Knitters” which is now out of print.
