Harry Potter Knee Socks: Perfectly Matched To The Team Sweater

Harry Potter knee socks match the Team SweaterSimply socks...nothing fancy.

Players in a multitude of team sports wear legwear of a similar style designed to match their uniforms.

Wizardings' fast and furious ball game is no exception. We know how dangerous it can be at times!

Protective gear includes arm guards, knee pads and shin guards which protect the player's legs from knee to ankle.

We all own a favorite pair or two but for the serious athlete participating in the next Wizarding games, these socks are an indispensable part of the team uniform.

The top of this footed sock features the same *trapped bar* pattern seen on the scarves. The stripes are the same size as those seen on the POA styled Team Sweater.

Their purpose is to pad the lower leg area directly underneath the shin guards much as the sleeve of the sweater pads the arm under the arm guards.

As part of the team uniform, they are designed to match the Team Sweater in color, materials and design.

  • Knit using high quality, 100% acrylic yarns with nylon reinforced heel and toe.
  • *Trapped bar* stripe pattern,
  • Knee-high length, in proportion to sock size,
  • Ribbed stitch pattern to match the Sports Team Sweater.
  • Heel and toe reinforced with nylon thread. For some colors, the nylon thread is not a perfect color match.
  • Ladies and Men's sizes with Children's sizes available upon request.
  • Custom colors available upon request.
  • Only two measurements - the length of your foot and the circumference around the ball of your foot - are required to knit a pair of socks for you.

    This would be true if the socks in question were crew style but for knee highs, we also have to fit the shape of the leg...so we need to work with a few additional measurements, such as the circumference of the calf [at its widest part] and the total length from the floor to just below the knee cap.

    We recently refined the design of our sports team socks to allow for better leg shaping. Although the leg section is a ribbed stitch with considerable stretch, the ankle width cannot stretch to cover the calf at the widest part.

    Since we can't measure you in person, we have developed a chart using standard calf and ankle measurements to cover a range of sizes. This will help you determine the correct size to order.

    By default, the sock is knit with a solid color foot but you can customize it with contrasting heel and toe.

    For color reference purposes, please visit the Wizard Scarf page to view the different team colors. As with the wizard scarf, custom colors are available upon request.

    "How do I compare misses sizes to a junior sizes? I really don't know which I should order or which size would be a better fit."

    Get out your measuring tape because there is a difference between each size range. The questions here is how does a Misses size compare to a Junior size.

    In an earlier post, we covered the differences between the two size ranges but here are the measurements to determine specifically which Junior size comes closest to an "8" in the Misses size range.

    There is one other factor which can throw off all "sizing" and measurements - how generous the manufacturer is in their idea of sizing. The easiest way to put it is this...when it comes to comparing sizes, the more expensive the brand, the more true to size and the more generous the wearing ease.

    Have you ever had the opportunity to try on various sweaters of the same size but from different labels and manufacturers? Try it sometimes - you will be amazed.

    Let's start by comparing Misses sizes to Junior sizes.

    The difference is not just in the finished measurements. You can also tell the difference in the construction and finishing method. The high end garments will be full fashioned (individual garment pieces are made separately then assembled) rather than completed using the cut and sew method.

    The big ticket items also provide you with more wearing ease above and beyond the design ease.

    Please note that the measurements given below are your actual measurements not the finished measurements of the garment itself.

    Also, the style of a garment will affect how it fits - outerwear [jackets, vests, coats and cardigans] has varying amounts of added wearing ease - they are designed to be layered over other garments.

    Certain sweater styles have "negative" wearing ease...in other words they are literally smaller than your actual body measurements.
