For sexy Slytherins!

If you have previously purchased the other three designs in the House Pride collection then enter the code SLYTHERIN at checkout to get this pattern for free. The code also works if you buy all four patterns together.

This is the last of my sock designs for the Hogwarts Houses. It features the house heraldic motif (a silver serpent), and a house cheer (‘SSSSlytherin’). The fairisle border and foot pattern are designed to be evocative of the medieval origins of the Hogwarts Houses.

I used shades 1512 (dark green) and 1511 (light grey) in Zitron Trekking Pro Natura for the socks pictured. Shades of dark green and light grey in any other sock/4ply/ fingering yarn may be substituted. I also highly recommend using knitting-in elastic in the cuffs to enhance the staying-up power of the socks!

NB: This is not an official, licensed Harry Potter product and is not intended to be perceived as such.

I have completely overhauled the house pride sock patterns, so that each pattern is now fully graded for three sizes - small, medium, and large. The socks are sized to fit up to 30½(35½:40½)cm/ 12(14:16)“ calf circumferences and 21½(24:26½)cm/ 8½(9½:10½)” mid-foot circumferences.
