What Material Will You Need to Make Socks?

  • sock yarn category #1 (other weights of yarn are used too)
  • crochet hook
  • tapestry needle
  • scissors

For your socks to fix well, you will want them to be smaller than your foot so they will need to stretch some. You will want a comfortable yarn that is long lasting.

To keep your socks up there will need to be ribbing at the top to help keep the socks in place.

I made a pair of socks with this and I love the pattern. It’s very straightforward and as promised, very adjustable. I had a hard time with the ankle bit of the pattern, so I created my own simple pattern, but I don’t think that’s the author’s fault.

The socks turned out great, and I plan on making more pairs. I would say it’s a great sock pattern for beginners. The first sock took me a long time because I wanted to keep looking at the pattern, but I finished the second sock in less then half the time I used for the first.

Easy to use pattern! I’ve tried making socks before and struggled but this pattern really helped and made it easy to figure out where I was going wrong before.

The small adult size fits my size 7.5 feet (US\Canada size) perfectly. 🙂 Next time I pick up this pattern, though, I’ll pick a wool-blend that isn’t fuzzy so that the cables really pop.

I had only made baskets and plants before so I put off getting started with these because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to make them. Turns out I was wrong!

So far, so good. Great stitches and they are not complicated, figuring out a small error in end number of stitches for size Large—was not a problem (will send separately), and I really love the way the sock is thick and cozy.

These will make a nice present to a friend with some lotion and some pink polish! Thank you for an easy transaction & quick download. I love this!

A sock pattern I could actually make! Thanks for an easy-to-follow pattern that makes a really nice, thick sock!

This pattern is available in baby to adult. Make your own cozy pair of socks today.

So far so good, it’s a very nicely written and laid out pattern. Results are looking good so far, but I’m going to need to fiddle around with hook size to make it a bit smaller. Using the yarn and crochet hook required and did a gauge swatch which was good but the sock so far looks pretty wide. No matter, its an easy fix!

12. Eloise Cuffed Sock

This pattern is amazing so far! I have just started the heel turn on my first sock and the instructions are so clear. I’m making the largest size right now and I absolutely love all the reference photos. This is one of the best crochet patterns I have bought!

Wow this pattern is so good! I’m an experienced crocheter but this is so good for beginners with all the descriptions and photographs. I really enjoyed that the sock is made to fit me rather than having to stick with a certain amount of stitches. Would definitely recommend!
