I have never made socks before, and I’m now going to teach myself how. I’m also crocheting them as knitting and I don’t get along. I found a pattern that is quite easy, and I plan to make three pairs of socks, for three co-workers.
Sorry the first one is upside down even though I saved it right side up.. The colorway is Mountain Range. I am using a size “D” – 3.25mm aluminum crochet hook.
This is where I’m at right now. The pattern I’m using is Step-by-step Crocheted Socks Tutorial.
This pair of socks is for my co-worker, Rebecca. She’s going to try on what I’ve made so far over the weekend and let me know where adjustments need to be made before I move on to making the heel. She wants mid-calf high socks so she can wear them under her boots. I’m making hers first.
This pattern is so simple and easy to read I’m enjoying it a great deal. There’s lots of pictures too. So far, the stitches have been simple: slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet and grit stitch which is just a combo of single and double stitches.
The yarn is a cotton blend so it has some stretch and moisture wicking properties. It was a bit of a chore finding the yarn at a reasonable price too, and I ended up having to order it online because nobody local carries this yarn.
I’ll keep you updated on my progress with the socks, but I’m liking the journey so far!!
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
