The Quidditch Cup is an annual inter-house series of Quidditch matches played at Hogwarts for house points and house pride. Because of construction costs and special effects needs, the Quidditch pitch in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was one of the first Harry Potter sets created almost entirely in CGI. The final design highlights the competition’s focus on the houses, showing a ring of stands with soaring towers draped in Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw colors.

Inspired by the house-themed checkerboard pattern of the Quidditch pitch towers, these socks can be knit in the house colors of your choice. The top-down socks have an afterthought heel, designed to interrupt the colorful pattern as little as possible. The heel can be made before working the foot or at the end after completing the toe. Knit a matching pair, or mix and match to support your favorite houses.

Socks need 1 hank of each color.
