These socks are very fitted, especially around the ankle. If you want the cuff looser you can either go up a hook size for the cuff, or make the cuff shorter. One skein of worsted weight yarn is needed for a size small and medium. Just over one skein will be needed for a Large. Or you can make the cuff shorter to compensate for the longer foot length.

BASIC CROCHET SOCKS PATTERN (make 2)

Make a magic ring

Round 1: ch 1, 6 sc in ring, pull ring closed tight (6 sc)

Do not join. Place a stitch marker in the first stitch of next round

Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch around (12 sc)

Continue moving the stitch marker into the first stitch of each round

Round 3: *sc in 1 stitch, 2 sc in next* repeat from * to * around (18 sc)

Round 4: *sc in 2 stitches, 2 sc in next* repeat from * to * around (24 sc)

Round 5: *sc in 3 stitches, 2 sc in next* repeat from * to * around (30 sc)

Round 6: *sc in 4 stitches, 2 sc in next* repeat from * to * around (36 sc)

The circle should have a diameter of approx 2.5”. To adjust, go up or down a hook size

Round 7: sc in each stitch around (36 sc)

Repeat round 7 to Round 38 for S, 43 for M, 48 for L (36 sc)

The heel begins in the next row. The sock should reach right up to the ankle at this point. Add or take out rounds as needed. These will stretch when worn.

HEEL

The heel is worked in turned rows

Row 1: ch 1, turn, sc in 27 stitches (27 sc)

To make the ankle wider, reduce the number of stitches in row 1

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (27 sc)

Repeat previous row to Row 7 (27 sc)

Row 12: ch 1, turn, sc3tog

Do not fasten off.

CUFF

The cuff is worked around the opening of the sock. To make the cuff looser, go up a hook size.

Round 1: sc evenly around the opening of the sock (approx. 36 stitches – add or take out stitches to your liking)

Do not join. Add a stitch marker to the first stitch of the next round

Round 2: sc in each stitch around

Repeat round 2 to Round 20 (or to desired length)

Sl st in next 2 stitches. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

  1. I really like your pattern it’s very nice and easy. I was wondering if you could possibly do a video tutorial; I find it is easier to follow and understand.

    1. Lindo modelo, me encantaría verlo en video, una que se me hace más fácil, más didáctico
      Muchas gracias

  2. How would you convert to sock yarn so that you could make actual socks that would fit into shoes? I would love to crochet some socks for my family, but have had no luck finding a pattern that would allow this. I’m not good at math and figuring out the difference in how many stitches. (I’ve tried! Disaster!). Would you think about creating a pattern with fingering weight/sock yarn?

    1. I agree, I am wanting to do socks that I can wear in my shoes, using sock yarn. I am a teacher and being outside during the winter (plus giving as gifts) would be great. Please Please Please create a pattern using #1 sock weight yarn. I’m like my crochet friend, I can’t do the math (no, I don’t teach math).

  3. Hi! I don’t understand the heel. Do you do a sc in one stitch and then the sc 2 together in the next stitches? (Row 8) – thanks.

  4. Hi am lovingmaking these thick socks! so easy, and my daughter 10yrs is going to try them.
    Do you think for 4 ply sock yarn and maybe a smaller needle (say size 3) i could attempt the pattern and just keep crocheting according to the pattern, so for round 1-i might just have do to a few more SC than the original 6SC. I gues you could crochet an 8ply alongside the 4ply and just keep matching it up!!lol. Or have you an easier way i could figure this out. Many thanks!Carol

    1. Hi! Are you wanting to make the socks smaller than the pattern? Using sock yarn will change the size quite a bit, so I’m not sure how much you’ll have to change it up without making it myself 🙂

  5. Make the same size for my foot and smaller for my daughter size 5.i thought for my size just make 2 alongside each other (one with 8ply and one with 4ply and keep matching up the 4ply to the 8ply)lol!

  6. Yes! please please please from me too 🤣
    I have checked out the other patterns around that have patterns for sock yarn but this pattern supplied here is by far the Best and easiest to understand!!
    Have no idea at all about crochet maths!!
