Crochet socks are a wonderful thing, they are super quick to make and very easy. However; they are quite different from knitted socks, crochet produces thicker fabric than knitting, therefore resulting in a bulkier sock, which is just perfect to wear around the house and in your wellies or walking shoes.

This is a step-by-step tutorial for a toe-up sock with short row heel (my favourite!) the sock is crocheted using an amazing stitch called linked half treble (US linked half double crochet) which produces a wonderful fabric (picture tutorial for this stitch is included in the pattern). The edging is complately optional.

Materials
MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino – beautiful and soft 100% Virgin Wool yarn available at LoveCrochet.com
A - 2 x Fuchsia 143 (Large size x 3)
B - 1 x Snow 124
I have used above yarn, but any sport/5ply, such as Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby, yarn will be fine to use for these socks, taking into account that different fibres result in different finished effect. You will need approximately 250 m (272 yd) of main colour and approximately 30 m (33 yd) of contrast colour.

2.5 mm crochet hook - for cuff
2 x easily removable different coloured stitch markers
