the original tale of sweeney todd is just as messy and murderous as its modern musical reincarnations. in the original mid-1800s version, however, its primary protagonist is the lovely johanna, who dresses as a boy to find out what happened to her missing lover whose last gift to her is a string of pearls. create your own less bloody version by knitting these socks - nox yarn co.’s dainty demimonde colourway is offset with rich speckles of orange and burgundy, adding extra depth to the cabled pearls travelling up your feet and ankles.

welcome to a season of penny dreadfuls, and socks inspired by the 19th century equivalent of pulp fiction. this is pattern 1/7 in the penny dreadful collection, a collection of socks with nox yarn co. patterns are being released over 2018 and can be purchased individually or as a whole at a reduced cost.
