Fans of G. R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series will recognize the inspiration for these socks--Lord Varys , the political mastermind of Westeros--but you don’t have to like fantasy novels to enjoy knitting these socks. They are handsome, reasonably unisex, and fit snugly.

Unfortunately, the pattern is only written for Medium and Large. A smaller size could be achieved by knitting the medium at a tighter gauge.

ERRATA: In the original version, the ribbing and transition round has an error in size medium.

The ribbing should be: p2, k2, p1, k2, p1
The transition round should be p2 k2, p1, k2, p1

8-29-18: In the original version, there was no separate number given for the number of rows in the heel flap.

These errors have been corrected.
