It’s cold out, the days are shorter, and Christmas is just around the corner. What better way is there to enjoy the holiday season than with a hot beverage, a good book, and some cozy house socks? Sure, things are a little different this year, and many of us won’t get a big family Christmas, but we can still cozy up under some blankets with our cocoa or nog and FaceTime the family.

Lately, I’ve been posting loads of new Tunisian Crochet projects and it felt like we needed a few quick and easy regular crochet projects to use as stocking stuffers or even last-minute gifts. A pair of these socks can be crocheted in about 2 hours, or less if you are an experienced crocheter. I tried to create as easy a pattern as I could so that beginners could follow along and experienced crocheters could enjoy a quick-work project.

All you need is one skein of #4 medium/worsted yarn and you can crochet 2 pairs of adult socks. This pattern makes a pair of women’s adult socks for shoe sizes 6-8 (US). you can easily adjust the pattern so make baby, child, or men’s socks. If you are making these socks as a gift, you can find a full Foot Sizing Chart on the Yarn Council’s page, which includes sizes from baby to adult for both men and women.

Yarn: I used Mandala Ombres, but you can use any #4 medium/worsted/aran yarn you want. Here are the specs for Mandala yarn, in case you’d like to use a different yarn, or you cannot find this yarn wherever you live. I was able to make 2 adult pairs with 1 skein, and I still had enough yarn left over to make a pair of baby socks.

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
