Fold piece in half so that row 30 touches the foundation chain. Thread the long tail through your yarn needle. Whip stitch the foundation chain to the front loop only of row 30.

When you have stitched all the sts of the foundation chain to the sts of row 30, you should reach the starting tail of your sock. Leave the yarn needle on the seaming yarn. Tie the seaming yarn in a double-knot with the starting tail.

Insert your yarn needle into the next few major loops around the edge of the toe opening. Pull the seaming yarn through and repeat around the opening until you reach the starting tail again.

Pull the seaming yarn tight to close the toe opening. Tie the seaming yarn in a double-knot with the starting tail. Weave in ends.  

 

To Block:

Lay socks on an ironing board or thick towel, and/or insert sock blockers into the socks. Hold a steaming iron 2-3 inches away from fabric. Turn socks over and repeat. Allow to cool completely.

OR

Spray water on the socks until fairly damp, allow to dry.

      Hi! Yes, you could use pure wool for this, but if it is not superwash wool, you’ll need to be careful to wash the finished socks by hand so they won’t felt. Ideally, if you’re going to use wool for socks, superwash wool is best, but you could try using regular wool if you like. I hope this helps!

        Hi Lori. To make the socks taller, you could add more stitches to the row, making sure the stitch count from the toe to the heel stays the same. However, I don’t recommend making them a lot taller, as the sock cuff may be kind of snug around the calf. (It is designed to fit comfortably around the ankle.) I hope this helps!

    I had been looking a lot of crochet socks since my mom had wished for me to make her a pair of warm socks for winter/chilly evenings. I didnt really like most of the patterns I came across until I found yours. So I just wanted to thank you. Even as a Dane used to danish abbreviations and terms it was really easy to follow especially with your video when in doubt. My mom loves her new socks. Now my auntie wants a pair too 😀 – thank you

  • Diane Mcfarland

    This seems to be of perfect simplicity. I will try this. I love to crochet, but easy patterns. Not one for advanced stitches . Recently retired, want to get back to crocheting. Any other different easy patterns? Not blankets tho. I’ve made lots. May be things for grandkids? 18, 12, 12, 9 ages. Thank you, Diane

  • Jamie

    How would I alter the numbers in the parantheses if I’m making these for a man? Would it just be adding in multiples of six?

    • Yay for Yarn

      Hi Jamie. Yes, you could add to the stitch count in multiples of six to make the socks larger. However, you may also need to repeat rows 10-11 a couple more times than the pattern says to make the sock slightly wider as well. I hope this helps!

      Hi Angel! I don’t have a pattern for a crochet hook case yet. However, Pinterest is a great place to find free patterns, and I’m sure someone has a crochet hook case pattern there. I hope this helps!
