Socks crochet pattern - easy for beginners stitch
Step-by-step crochet instructions
Make a foundation chain of 38 chain stitches.
1st row – sc to end plus RC1
2nd row – blsc to end + RC1
3 – 47 rows = 2nd row
48th row – blsc to end
Join the last and first rows of the cuff ribbing together to form a cylinder shape.
On the edge of the ribbing, work sc1 above each ribbing row and increase one chain every 4 rows.
1st round – [(sc1 above one ribbing row) x 3, sc2 above one rib.row] to end. After the 1st round, you should have 60 chains.
2 – 10 rounds – sc to end (work in an endless round)
1st row (wrong side) – ch1, h2ch, sc30 (or half of your total number of chains)
2nd row (right side) – h2ch, sc to last 2chs; sk1, sc1
3 – 9 rows = 2nd row
Turning the heel
10th row (right side) – h2ch, sc to end, sc1 in the previous row, sc1 in the following row, and place a marker in the last used chain.
11th row (wrong side) = 10th row
12th row – h2ch, sc to end, sc1 in the last used ch. (where the marker is), sc1 in the following row, and place a market in the chain.
13th row = 12th row
14th row – h2ch, sc to end, sc1 in the last used ch. (where the marker is), sc1 in the following two rows, and place a market in the last used chain.
15th row = 14th row
16, 17, 20, and 21 rows = 12th row
18 and 19 rows = 14th row
22nd row – h2ch, sc to end
Crochet in the round
1st round – pick up 1chain on this side of the sock (after the 22nd row), sc to the other side of the sock, pick up 1 ch., sc to end of the round. After the 1st round, you should have 2 chains more or 61 chains in total.
2 – 38 rounds – sc to end
Decrease 2 chs in each round
39 - 49 rounds – [dec.1, sc to the other side of the sock (or work half of your chs)] repeat that twice. After 10 rounds of the decrease, you should have 20 chains less.
50th round – [sc4, sk1] to end
51st round – [sc3, sk1] to end
52nd round – [sc 2, sk1] to end
53rd round – [sc1, sk1] to end
When you cover the hole entirely, cut the yarn and secure it from inside of the sock.
Repeat steps 1 through 8 for the second sock.
