Inspired by Professor Severus Snape, the Sectumsempra Stockings reflect the ebb and flow that was his life in the popular H.K. Rowling Harry Potter series. His story is so tragic and so heartbreaking that I felt moved to design these socks.

Worked from the toe up, the foot is knit in simple ribbing on top and straight stockinette on the soles. Following an afterthought heel, the ribbing then continues up the front and back of the leg while each side of the leg contains mirrored textured panels resembling the slashings created by Snape’s original deadly spell “Sectumsempra “ as seen in “The Half Blood Prince”. The cuff is stretchy 1x1 twisted ribbing.

These socks are truly worthy of the Potions Master himself.
