Pink Trimmed Socks Pattern

This is another pattern from my old blog. I originally posted it in November 2005.
(and yes! Those are my legs and that's one of my tattoos!)

You will need:

  • Size 4 steel crochet hook (1.75 mm)
  • Size 10 cotton (bedspread weight)
  • A pair of socks- I like the kind that fold down once.

American terminology throughout.

  • ch= chain
  • sc= single crochet
  • sl st= slip stitch
  • st= stitch
  • dc= double crochet
  • tr= treble
A treble is yarn over twice, insert hook in stitch, yo, slip two loops off the hook over the yarn over, yarn over, work off next two loops, yo, work off last 2 loops. 

Round 1: The hook is inserted into the socks for the first round. So start the thread as usual on the hook, then insert the hook into the sock, slip stitch, then make a single crochet in the same hole. Ch 3, sc into the top of the sock a little away from the first sc, repeat around for an odd number of ch 3 loops, then after the last sc, ch 1, dc into first sc to make an even number of loops. Mine had 32 loops total.

Round 2: ch 1, sc in top of the loop you're working in, chain 3, sc in next loop, repeat all the way around until the last loop, then ch 1, dc into first sc from rnd 2.

Round 3: Ch1, sc, chain 5, sc in next loop, repeat all the way around until the final loop space, ch 2, tr in first sc

Round 4: repeat rnd 3

Round 5: ch 1, sc, * 4 tr crochet, ch 2, 4 tr crochet in next ch 5 loop, sc in next ch 5 loop* repeat around until the last loop, 4 tr crochet, ch 2, 4 tr, slipstitch in first sc, end off, weave in ends.


  1. Cute socks! And a cool tat. :)

  2. Adorable. I've been picking up on my crochet this weekend (as I type too), which basics I learned in middle school. I promised myself I'd do it again once I had learned to knit (happy to report I can knit with 5 double pointed needles now).
    These socks remind me of childhood-and childlike fads in high school.Time to pick up some plain socks like these at Target. Thank you.I so enjoy your generous blog and reading you on Twitter.
