Survival Socks - You can’t live without them!

You will need:
3 mm crochet hook (or any size hook to obtain gauge)
2 balls of Drops Fabel, 4ply, Colour 674 - Bourgogne Print
A pair of scissors
Darning needle
1 stitch marker (or a safety pin)
Ruler/measuring tape


The pattern is written using UK crochet terms.

To make these socks you will need to know how to do chains, double crochet, increase and decrease, slip stitch and work in back loops.

The sock is worked from the toe up. Some sewing is required to finish the sock.

The toe, foot and leg are worked in a continuous round. The rows are not joined together with a slip stitch, they simply continue on top of each other. Mark the start of the round with a stitch marker/safety pin or a piece of yarn in a contrasting colour and move the marker as you start a new round.

The heel and cuff are worked back and forth in rows and you need to turn you work after each row.

The pattern describes how to make a sock that will fit UK adult shoe sizes 3-8.
