Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold*
Come along with me on a journey from the top of the cuff to the tip of your toe. There are many bumps, hills, valleys and paths to explore as you build your sock, knit by knit, purl by purl into a densely patterned landscape as intriguing and any found in Middle Earth.
Knit from the top down, the sock is covered in bands of textured stitches each take their own journey and direction as you knit. The texture continues onto both the heel flap heel and the toe, which has a chevron design to point you onto your next adventure.
The pattern is now available on Ravelry. If you happen to be in my area, come by Shall We Knit and where they will be featured in their Crazy Local Talent trunk show, along side a few other noteworthy designs!
