When Laurel, the designer, started thinking about socks based on the Lord of the Rings Trilogy she thought to herself "What socks would Hobbits wear?". Well, as we all know, hobbits don't wear shoes and so they probably don't wear socks either. Their tough hairy feet make it unnecessary. But for us humans with our soft, unprotected soles we need something to keep our toes toasty warm. Hence, the Hobbit Feet pattern. Knit this up for your favorite Lord of the Rings fan- child or adult- and they can pretend to be a hobbit too!
Prancing Pony Socks
For a pair of socks that can be worn under your riding boots, or down to the local tavern, try the Prancing Pony socks! A basic top down sock pattern is livened up with a fun intarsia pony on the side of the leg or the back of the heel. Options are given for boot-high socks, short "ankle" socks, adult sizes and kid sizes. You can make a pair for everyone in the family! The pattern is written for our Tinsel Toes fingering weight Tencel/Merino sock yarn for a bit of silky, shiny elegance. We've been told by many customers that Tinsel Toes makes the most comfortable, hard wearing socks in their collection!
