Hedwig & Friends

Hedwig and Friends is a new sock pattern now available free on Ravelry! Just a few rows of cables create this fun pattern.  The rest is knit and purl stitches.  Plus, a few beads for some added cute-ness! And, best of all, just in time to sit down and knit while watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part II on DVD!

The yarn above is Tern in Back Bay by Quince and Company.  At 221 yards per skein, two skeins are more than enough to make a pair of women's size medium socks.  Tern is a dream to work with, 75% wool and 25% silk.  A great fingering weight yarn, hand wash, lay flat to dry.

My prototype sock was knit with KnitPicks Stroll Fingering in Jack Rabbit Heather.  To say I love this yarn and this colorway is a huge understatement! It's wonderful! 75% Merino Wool and 25% Nylon, this Fingering Weight Yarn is machine wash and tumble dry low.  At 231 yards, 2 skeins,again, was more than enough to knit a pair of women's size medium socks.
