During the lockdown I was re-reading one of my favorites, Lord of the Rings. Dreaming of travelling to far away lands, cozy hobbit homes and visiting to magical places where elves roam. That was the inspiration behind the name and the sock pattern. Hope they take you away somewhere magical too!

The socks are knit from the cuff down and the lace is only knit on the calf portion of the sock with a little lace detail just before the toe. A fun lace pattern, intuitive and keeps the sock interesting to knit. The pattern lace is charted only. The pattern is written for magic loop knitting only. The pattern is adaptable for dpns.

“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
