New Pattern Available: Luna Loves Neville

Wit beyond measure may be man’s greatest treasure, but if he’s got an eye out for Nargles in the Mistletoe, likes sitting in the stables with the Thestrals, and isn’t quick to dismiss such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack, he’s likely to win the heart of a Miss Lovegood, and that is a treasure indeed.
Finished Measurement:
The directions are given for a woman’s sock. Foot length is adjustable. Leg and foot circumferences (stretched): 8 (11) inches.
Yarn Requirements:
Necessary yardage will vary with foot length. Approximately 380 - 400 yards were required for 10 ½” foot lengths in testing over several different yarns.
