Product details

A top-down, textured sock inspired by Tolkien's character Tom Bombadil.

Skill Level: Intermediate; the sock includes basic top-down construction featuring a heel flap, short-row heel turn, and wedge toe; major cabling, textured stitches, and lots of charts. The ability to read a knitting chart is a must, although all symbols are clearly defined.

Materials: 1 set of US1 (2.25mm) sock needles (either DPN or Magic Loop), a cable needle (or the ability to cable up to 7 stitches without a needle), basic knitting gear such as a tape measure & scissors.

Yarn: Directions are for a solid color sock, for which I recommend between 375-400 yds. (340-365 m.) of fingering weight yarn. There are also directions for a version with the cuff, heel, and toe in a contrasting color. For this version, I recommend the same total yardage (or meterage), but divided between a main and a contrasting color.

Three sizes are available, each with its own set of charts. Ankle circumference is 7.5 (8.5
