socken

I am feeling very honored, that so many crocheters like my socks. I was asked for the pattern. But unfortunately i made them freestyle. To make you happy and to thank you for your compliments I tried to write down what I did. So here is my first own pattern (without to many mistakes I hope).

Note:

- I used a 5mm hook. In UK it is a 6 and in US it is a 8/H
- My footsize is 38 (or 7,5 US)
- I used one skein of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, Color Stained Glass for both socks
- I crochet tight

Toes and length of the foot are crocheted in rounds. Not continious rounds but rather like this:

Join last and first stitch of the round with a sl st. Chain 1, sc (toe) or hdc (footlength) in same stitch and then continue to crochet sc or hdc. Repeat joining every round.

TOE:

- Start with a magic ring with 7 sc
- Increase every sc (=14)
- Increase every sc like this

sc sc sc sc sc sc sc
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
8 9 10 11 12 13 14
sc hdc dc dc dc hdc sc
sc hdc dc dc dc hdc sc (=28)

- Increase No. 5 and 24 (=30)
- Increase No. 6 and 25 (=32)
- Increase No. 5 and 28 (=34)
- Crochet a last round 34 sc

LENGTH:

- Go on with 34 hdc
- Repeat 21 times
- End with sl st in first stitch of the round

HEEL:

- Chain 1, skip next stitch, sc, sl st, turn (=1sc)
- Chain 1, increase sc, sl st, turn (=2sc)
- Chain 1, increase every sc, sl st, turn (=4sc)
- Chain 1, increase first and last sc, sl st, turn (=6sc)
- Repeat, until you reached 18sc, sl st, turn
- Chain 1, sc in every sc, sl st, turn (=18sc)
- Repeat, until you have 16 stitches on the footlength left (16 + 18 = 34 stitches)
- Then do 9 sl st to the middle of the heel
- Chain 1, hdc in same stitch, 33 hdc (=34), sl st in first stitch of the round
- Chain 1, Decrease 2 hdc (=32), sl st
- Cut yarn, but leave enough to sew foot and leg together

LEG:

- Chain 31 (Attention: following sc in the bumps of the back of the crocheted chain)
- Sc in No. 30, 29 sc (=30)
- Chain 1, 30 sc in backloops only
- Repeat 43 times
- Turn your work and sew beginning chain with the last round together
- Make a little sc border like this: Chain 1, sc in same stitch, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 1 sc / 2 sc until you reach the first sc (=33sc)
- Finish with sl st in first stitch of the round
- Cut yarn and sew it in

JOIN FOOT AND LEG:

Turn foot and leg inside out, connect both, sew yarn ends in. Turn outside in, finished. :)

  • <b> Freundin:</b> "Du hast zwei verschiedenfarbige Socken an"<p><b>Ich:</b> "Ja also das war so. Früher lebte die weiße Socke glücklich mit seiner weißen Sockenfrau zusammen. Ebenso die lila Socke mit ihrem lila Sockenmann. Doch dann kam der Tag, der alles veränderte. Ein böses Ungetüm namens Waschmaschiene nahm ihnen ihre Partner. Nun lebten die weiße und die lila Socke alleine traurig in der Sockenschublade. Bis sie durch einen Zufall nebeneinander lagen. Und was soll ich sagen, Liebe auf den ersten Blick ist kein Märchen. Deshalb trage ich eine weiße und eine lila Socke, weil die beiden von nun an zusammen gehören."<p>
