Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques & Skills Used: longtail CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, slipstitch colorwork, knitting in the round, grafting; this pattern includes both charts for the colorwork and full written instructions.

Pattern Description:

A tribute to the Quidditch players of Harry Potter's Wizarding World, or to any sock-loving Muggle, these colorwork socks are knit from the cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. The simple slipstitch technique requires working only one color at a time per row. Show your House colors with pride!


34 st and 48 rows/4" in stockinette stitch; 36 st and 48 rows/4" in Checkerboard slipstitch pattern; 34 st and 68 rows/4" in Diamond Stripe slipstitch pattern, after blocking. Slipstitch colorwork is very dense; the slipstitch
rows are also somewhat difficult to measure, as one slipped stitch represents two rows. The best way to measure for fit is to try on the sock.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: S (M, L): 60 (68, 76) st; to fit 10 (11, 12)" calf, Women's US 6/7 (8/9, 10/11) shoe size.
