Crochet Sock Pattern

Crochet Sock Pattern

 Socks are a quick useful project, especially in winter time. I use up my scrap yarns for these socks. They are very comfortable and wash and wear very nicely.

 This is how I make ladies’ size socks. Play around with increasing and decreasing to adjust the size. Here is how I do mine:

 Supplies:

Size I Crochet hook

About 1 skein of worsted weight yarn

Pattern Notes:

I used the “dc 2 together” as a decreasing stitch on round 16. Here is how to use it (it uses the next 2 sts):

To dc2tog – *YO, insert hook in next st, YO, pull up a loop, YO, draw through two loops*, repeat from * to * once, YO, and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Foot:

Rnd 1: Starting at toe, ch 3, 11 dc in third ch from hook, join with sl st in top of ch-3. (12 dc made)

 Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in next st, (dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) around, join. (18 dc)

 Rnd 3: Ch 2, dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, (dc in each of next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st) around, join. (24 dc)

 Rnd 4-5: Ch 2, dc in each st around, join.

 Rnd 6: Ch 2, dc in each of next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st, (dc in each of next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st) around, join. (30 dc)

 Rnd 7-11: Ch 2, dc in each st around, join. Fasten off.

 Heel:

Row 8: Working in rows, for heel, skip first 22 sts, join with sc in next st, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in each of next 2 sts leaving remaining sts unworked, turn. (19 sts)

 Row 9: Ch 1, sc in each of first 2 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in last st, sc in next unworked st on rnd 7, turn. (20 sts)

 Row 10: Ch 1, sc in each of first 2 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in each of last 2 sts, sc in next unworked st on rnd 7, turn. (21 sts)

 Row 11: Ch 1, sc in each of first 3 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in each of last 2 sts, sc in next unworked st on rnd 7, turn. (22 sts)

 Row 12: Ch 1, sc in each of first 3 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in each of last 3 sts, sc in next unworked st on rnd 7, turn. (23 sts)

 Row 13: Ch 1, sc in each of first 4 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in each of last 3 sts, sc in next unworked st on rnd 7, turn. (24 sts)

 Rnd 14: Working in rounds, ch 1, sc in each of first 4 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, dc in next 12 sts, hdc in each of next 2 sts, sc in each of last 4 sts, sc in remaining 6 sts on rnd 7, join with sl st in first sc, turn. (30 sts)

 Leg:

Rnd 15: Ch 2, dc in each st around, join. (30 dc)

 Rnd 16: Ch 2, dc in each of next 2 sts, dc2tog, (dc in each of next 3 sts, dc2tog) around. (24 dc)

 Rnd 17-22: Ch 2, dc in each st around, join. (24 dc)

 Rnd 23: Ch 1, sc in same st, ch2, (sc in next st, ch 2) around, join. Fasten off.

 Caring for your socks. I just throw them in the washer with other like colors. I usually line-dry mine. The tops get a little stretched out when I wear them, but they come out of the wash back to normal size!

Crocheting in Sickness and in Health

21 Jul

One reason I love to crochet is because I can do it while I am sick. It gives me something to do with my hands (keeping my mind occupied) and keeps me from feeling completely useless! Of course it’s much more fun when I feel well, but I still enjoy it all the time.

Here are some things I have been working on the last week and a half or so while I haven’t been feeling good:

Crocheted Rose

I wasn’t completely satisfied with my rose, because I didn’t think it rolled very nice. I need to keep practicing that one!

Crocheted Socks

I love making socks because it seems like something more useful that people could actually use. This pair is for me; I wanted to see how they wear and how they wash. They turned out pretty good! The drawback with socks is that the yarn makes my hands really sore.

Besides this I am still working on my baby afghan and also on baby hats and booties. I love doing the hats and booties because they are so cute and don’t take long. I usually have a short attentions span when not feeling well. I’ll try to tell you more about the patterns I use in another post.

I have also worked some on my “Big Project”.
