The game of Quidditch features prominently in the Harry Potter books. The imagery of Harry’s Firebolt, the golden snitch, and the dragon’s egg Harry retrieves as the first task in the Triwizard tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as a key step to winning the tournament itself are featured on these socks.

These unisex socks are knit from the cuff down, featuring a standard square heel flap and a wide tapered toe. The motifs are worked in twisted stitches beginning at the cuff ribbing, and running down the leg, onto the foot.

The smallest size used one skein of yarn; the two larger sizes will require two skeins to complete. The length of the foot may be adjusted for a customized fit.

Please note two errata:
On the charts (all three sizes) on row 15, the second 2-over-1 twisted stitch cross in the broom motif should twist to the LEFT and not the right, as the charts indicate. This is for both of the broom motifs on the chart. (And a thank-you to Lori for finding that and pointing it out, and finally getting me to understand what she was asking about by looking at hers!)

Also, for the heel flap instructions, the first (RS) row should read:
(RS): Sl 1 pwise with the yarn in BACK, K1; repeat from to end.
The next row, the WS row is correct.
