Pattern Details









Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You need to know: chain stitches, single crochet, half-double crochet and double crochet stitches
  • Will be working both in rounds and rows

Pattern Description:

I love baby socks - they are just too cute on those little feet! This pattern set includes instructions for making socks using regular sock yarn and a basic short-row heel technique.

The pattern is 6 pages with lots of pictures to help you - so don't let "socks" scare you off! (I would consider this an advanced beginner or intermediate level pattern.)

There are 4 different variations included: basic sock with ribbed cuff; flat cuff with scalloped edging; a shell stitch cuff; and a double crochet cross-stitch foot design. You can also vary the look of the socks by making the cuff and/or toe sections in different colors from the main body of the sock.

My absolute favorite though is making a pair or two from hand-painted sock yarn. The socks in the main picture above were made from a skein painted in a watermelon color pattern - completely unique, they are just one example of what you can create from hand-painted yarns.

Most sock yarn skeins are 300-400 yards - enough to make 3-4 pair of newborn socks or 2-3 pair of the larger sizes.

Crocheting is my crafty passion - passed on to me by my grandmother. :-)

My husband and I were both blessed to be able to retire just after turning 50 in January 2007. We sold just about everything we couldn?t fit in the pickup truck or RV and started choosing places we wanted to see on a big map.

And then I got cancer.

Our travel plans were put on hold as I went through chemotherapy, ...
