The Bobbles and Bezoars sock pattern came about from a collaboration with Malia of Malia Mayed It. Her incredible talent for dyeing self-striping yarns inspired me to make a simple sock pattern with just the right amount of texture.

Malia’s original colorway, “Romilda Vane’s Box of Chocolates,” was inspired by the scene in the Harry Potter series where Ron is poisoned after seeking a cure to a love potion-tainted box of chocolates. Guess what saves poor Ron? {Besides Harry, of course.} A bezoar! A bezoar is a stone from the stomach of a goat and it’s a powerful antidote to common poisons. The teeny bobbles in the socks represent the stone {bezoars are actually a real thing!} that saves Ron’s life.

This pattern DOES NOT COME WITH HEEL INSTRUCTIONS. It is designed to work best with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel (or similar short row heel) or an afterthought heel. If you have a few pairs of socks under your belt, you’ll have no trouble subbing in your favorite heel!
