Brew yourself up some toe-up socks. A panel of large droplets that are made out of smaller droplets run up the side of this poisonous pair. Just a few small drops are enough to poision your knitting desires so you’ll only want to knit more socks. The teardrop pattern is easy to memorize and addictive so you’ll have some potent potion socks brewed up in a flash.

Construction Notes:
These socks are worked toe-up and the pattern is written for magic loop. You could also use DPNs if that is your preference. Pattern includes instructions for a standard toe, short row heel, and cuff.

The Poison motiff is provided in both written and charted instructions! Pattern is formatted in easy to read columns instead of full page text.

Transparency Note:
This pattern originally had a name inspired by a series of books about a boy wizard. The name has been changed because I cannot condone this author’s views. All pattern proceeds made with the original name have been donated to The Trans Justice Funding Project.
