My nephew is a Harry Potter fan. I began by making him the House Socks in the Gryffindor house colors. I made the first pair, the red with the narrow stripes, according to the pattern. It was a short 2X2 rib cuff then the rest is in stockingette. My nephew saw my Dad's socks and liked the 2X2 ribbing so the second pair was made with the entire cuff in ribbing and the wide bands of color. The photos look bright yellow, though in reality the color is more of an orangy-yellow.
I hope he likes these...they are for his birthday.
Happy Birthday Eric!!!
