The leg of this sock features an allover pattern that tapers down into a point over the top of the foot. The pattern is inspired by one of Tolkien’s Valar, Nienna, who took on the grief of all Arda after the fall of Melkor. The pattern looks similar to smocking, but is actually very elastic.

This pattern is inspired by Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, particularly the final speech Puck delivers to the audience, asking them for their applause. I love this speech, but it made no sense to design a sock with “hands” in the title, so this pattern is intended to keep your fingers nice and toasty.

Puck’s foolishness in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” keeps the play interesting, as he confuses lovers, mixes up Athenians, and plays tricks on the Fairy Queen. This sock is just as lively-- happily accommodating variegated yarns, it is basically a ribbed sock, with a pattern of lines that interlink in in...

Made for my brother’s big feet, this is a top-down sock with a very subtle pattern. The pattern is charted only, no description, but it’s fairly easy to follow. The texture is entirely knit/purl based, and so it knits up pretty quickly. I’m not certain how much yarn you’ll need, it depends on how big the feet are you̵...
