This sock inspired by a character in The Wheel of Time book series- Elayne Trakand, the Daughter Heir of Andor. Aes Sedai of the green ajah. Elayne and two other women are ‘tied’ to the main character, as the wheel of time has woven their threads together with his.

This sock uses twisted stitches, clustered or wrapped stitches, as well as cables. It is written in one size, but is relatively stretchy and can be knit to any length desired.

“…to be a Green means to stand ready. In the Trolloc Wars, we were often called the Battle Ajah. All Aes Sedai helped where and when they could, but the Green Ajah alone was always with the armies, in almost every battle. We were the counter to the Dreadlords. The Battle Ajah. And now we stand ready, for the Trollocs to come south again, for Tarmon Gai’don, the Last Battle. We will be there. That is what it means to be a Green.”
