Written pattern and video tutorial.

These cosy crochet socks are made out of aran weight yarn, they’ll be comfy in wellies but probably not your posh shoes. Splodge some of that sticky stuff on the soles so that they turn into non-slip slipper socks. Anyway, I’ve gone for a PDF download pattern (available on my blog) and it has loads of info.

A word of advice: go for the Leader of the Pac yarn (or similar) rather than the Three Bears yarn. The latter has very little stretch and is also not as soft and squishy. The sock I made in that (in the video tutorial) came up slightly smaller too. I’m also not convinced that you should go for 100% natural fibres for socks.

Something else to note: accuracy is important for socks but I think these ones are more forgiving than ones made from 4ply. However it is definitely worth getting the measurements of the foot you’re making these socks for.
