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.

Gauge:

With D hook: 16 rows and 14 single crochet stitches = 2 inches

With E hook: 13 rows and 11 single crochet stitches = 2 inches

My husband and I were both blessed to be able to retire just after turning 50 in January 2007. We sold just about ...
