Yarn and hook: I used two threads of finger yarn simultaneously on each side of the hook, but you are welcome to use a single thread of sport yarn (#2) or even DK (#3), though the DK will crochet a slightly larger sock.
The yarn I used is called Woolike, by a company called Loops and Threads. It’s only available at Michaels stores in the US, so feel free to substitute that with any other fingering yarn available in your local yarn stores. The colors I selected were: charcoal, ivory, red. You will need 2 skeins of each color.
Woolike Yarn Specs:
Weight: Super Fine (1)
Contents: 85% acrylic, 15% nylon
Skein Weight: 3.5 oz. / 100 g
Yardage: 678 yd. / 620 m
Construction: You will crochet the body of the sock first, followed by the cuff, toes, then heel. The initial chain determines the width of your sock (in the photo on the right: the section with the pink stitch marker near the toe of the socks).
General Notes of sizing: These socks were designed as knee-high socks. Now, keep in mind that I am a petite gal of 5’2” (157 cm), so “knee-high” for me might not be the same as it is for you. So you may need to make adjustments in order for the socks to fit your body type, but don’t stress it, we’ll talk more about that in the pattern as adjustments become relevant.
This is a one size fits most pattern, BUT you can easily resize it by using either a measurement chart or your own personal measurements.
Below are the three most-commonly requested sock sizes. You can find a full list of sizes, ranging from newborn to adult, on the Craft Yarn Council’s page. Copy and paste the following link to your browser to access their full measurement chart: https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/foot-size-charts
If you are resizing the pattern, you will need to use the measurements above for the following sections of the pattern:
Foot circumference = length of your initial chain
Sock Height = How high on your leg you want the sock to be.
Please note that this pattern is for knee-high socks, and the measurements above, as well as those in the Yarn Council link, are for standard size socks.
Total foot length = the measurement from heel to toe.
The toe and heel for an adult sock measure approximately 2” (5 cm) each.
