Fritillaries are flowering herbaceous perennials that feature bell-shaped bulbs that nod downward. Their delicate and unique features inspired this mystery pattern design, which unfolds over a series of clues – and we’ll wrap up with a Second Sock Party at the end!

Skill Level: Intermediate


  • Adult Small (Adult Med, Adult Lg)

Please note: This pattern requires two full size (100 g) skeins. If you choose yarn that comes in 50 g (half skein) sizes, you will need two of those to equal one full skein. Total yardage should be between 750-850 yards in all.

  • The details in this pattern will restrict the fabric more than plain stockinette stitch. Based on the experience of testers, I do not recommend that you size down or use smaller needles – even if you tend to be a slightly looser knitter. One tester who usually has to go down in either needle size or sock size (or both) said she achieved the best fit by knitting her actual sock size and using the recommended needles on this project. If you tend to be a tight knitter, please keep an eye on your gauge and adjust as needed.


  • Darning needle

  • Stitch markers

  • Cable needle (pattern will also include a trick to work the stitch without a cable needle, if you prefer)

  • Blocking pins, blocking mat

Finished Measurements (blocked)
