Inspiration: 

Hey everybody! My old pair of socks were super worn out. I wanted a new warm and comfy pair of socks to walk around at home mostly or just wear to keep feet warm while reading a book with my hot chocolate on the couch. So I was looking through all the soft yarns I had in my stash. When I saw this shade of Bernat Softee Chunky I knew I had a winner! Not only would my socks be super soft and comfy, but I would be able to crochet them in a day and they would be ready to wear (which is exactly what happened :D) 

I hope you enjoy making and wearing this as much as me!

Construction

These are beginner friendly socks. They are the perfect first project. We will use easy stitches and they work up quick. These slippers are worked from toe up till the heel, last we will work a bit of the ankle. They are very easy and the size can easily be adjusted for your foot. We will start with  a ch 2.

Yarn details

Any super chunky or super bulky weight or weight 6 yarn can be used to crochet these slippers. Feel free to adjust the size of the hook to match gauge if you want. I have used an acrylic yarn, Bernat Softee Chunky yarn which is cozy and soft.

Stitch details:

Very beginner friendly pattern for ankle socks. We will use basic stitches like single crochet, half double crochet. If you are a beginner this will be a fun project with a supportive YouTube tutorial to help every step of the way! Learn how to change colors as well!

In 4” by 4” or 10 cm by 10 cm swatch of hdc rows: 10 hdc and 7 rows

Notes

  1. Pattern is worked from toe up to heel, ankle is worked last.
  2. Pattern is worked in rounds till heel. Heel is worked back and forth in rows. Ankle is worked in rounds.
  3. Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  4. While weaving in ends do so carefully as this may lead to loss of elasticity if done too tight or over large area.
  5. Socks are stretchy and fit best when ½ – 1” less than actual foot measurements.
  6. The sizing is based on foot circumference and foot length. Match the foot circumference and length in chart and alter your size as needed. Instructions for adjusting size have been given.
  7. If you modify, take notes along the way so you can make the 2nd sock exactly the same as 1st.

Special stitches

Please refer to YouTube video for demonstration of all techniques and step by step tutorial.

Color change: Change colors in slip stitch at end of round.

Step 1: Insert hook into 1st hdc of round,

Step 2: drop the current yarn, catch new yarn on hook,

Step 3: pull through both the stitch and loop on hook.

Tug on all yarns to tighten a bit. This method finishes the stitch in old color and the new stitch will be in the new color.

Pattern

Foot

Ch 2 with MC

Alteration Note: You can also start with magic ring instead of ch 2. Make 7 (8, 9) hdc in ring, slst to 1st hdc. Continue with rnd 2. (Easy tutorial for magic ring linked on last page of pattern).

Rnd 1:  Make 7 (8, 9) hdc in 2nd ch from hk, slst to 1st hdc. 7 (8, 9) hdc

Alteration note: Hdc count in rnd 1 is based on foot circumference, for 7 (8, 9)” or 18 (20, 23) cm we will make 7 (8, 9) hdc in rnd 1 respectively.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, 2 hdc in same hdc, 2 hdc in each hdc around, slst to 1st hdc. 14 (16, 18) hdc

Rnd 3: Ch 1, hdc in same hdc, hdc in each hdc around, slst to 1st hdc. 14 (16, 18) hdc

Rnd 4 to 11 (12, 13): rep rnd 3 for pattern 8 (9, 10) more times.

Alteration note: Repeat rnd 3 till you reach the crease between foot and ankle. Wear and check fit before progressing to leg.

Heel

Add stitch marker to leave a gap at front of ankle

Count backwards from the last stitch of last rnd of foot. Add a stitch marker at the 5th st (skip the last 4 stitches at the end of last round). We will leave a gap at front of ankle while we make heel. Work back and forth in rows from now.

Note: The gap is the same for all sizes. You can leave a gap of 3- 5 stitches, adjust if needed.

Note: If you like you can push the line of slip stitches of the end of each round of foot to the back of the sock. You can cut the yarn and rejoin it so the gap lies opposite the line of slip stitches.

Row 1: Ch 1, hdc in same hdc, hdc in each hdc around till hdc with stitch marker. 10 (12, 14) hdc

Note: End row by hdc in stitch with st marker.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, hdc in 1st hdc, hdc in each hdc around till last hdc. 10 (12, 14) hdc

Row 3 to 5 (6, 7): rep row 2 for pattern 3 (4, 5) more times.

Alteration note: rep row 2 for pattern till end of heel.

Wear and check fit before moving on to ankle.

Ankle

Join the two sides of the heel together with a slip stitch. Continue making rnds on RS.

Note: We may have to slst from left to right or right to left, depending on which row we have ended. Refer to video tutorial if needed. After the slst continue ankle rounds on RS.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, hdc in same st, hdc in all the hdc around, slst to 1st hdc.

Stitch count does not matter. Just distribute hdc evenly around. Approx. stitch count 19 (21, 23).

Note: Make sure you aren’t working in heel gap (it is small and at the back of sock).

Rnd 2: Ch 1, hdc in same hdc, hdc in all the hdc around, slst to 1st hdc.

Change colors to blanket yarn/ CC in last slip stitch. See special stitches above.

Alteration note: Add more rounds to make sock taller before making the last round in blanket yarn.

Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc in all hdc of previous rnd, slst to 1st sc.

Fasten off and weave in the blanket yarn/ CC.

Leave 12” of MC/ bernat softee yarn and fasten off. We will use this to sew the gap in heel closed.

 

Closing heel

On WS, flatten the heel opening so the stitches on both sides of opening match/ stitches align. Use the tail left of MC to sew the opening closed. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Make one more slipper sock exactly the same way.

Tip: Add any anti slip agent to the sole of the slippers as crochet slippers tend to slip.

Congratulations!  Your chunky socks are now ready!
