Knee High Socks Crochet Pattern

Today I am sharing my new pattern for Knee High Socks.   You know that one project you have been working on for a long time and had to try all kinds of different solutions and ways to do it.  Well, that’s what I just went through for the last week. I have been working on a new pattern.  You ask why would I need a pattern?  Well I searched online to find a pattern for cute knee high-crochet socks.  Like the knit ones you see on Pinterest that are bright colored with those super cute Boho flowers on them in colorful patterns.  There just wasn’t many out there.   So that’s where the adventure began.  The 1st sock I made could have fit myself and my daughter both into them!  All I wanted to do was cry.  I waited a day to recoup from the disaster the GIANT sock and I mean GIANT!!!  So I decided that I did like the stitches I used I  just had to get the size down to a women’s size.  So once again I started creating another sock that hopefully would be more the size for a woman! 

I FINALLY got it right!!!!  TA DAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

 So below is my pattern for crocheted knee-high socks.  Also included is size instructions for youth size of 4-6.

      Hi Deb
      Great question! I have not created a girl pair yet but now with you asking I WILL!!! As far as down sizing you could try using a couple sizes smaller hook sizes to try it out. Not sure what size you are looking for.
      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get updates to new patterns I release. I am working on new poncho release now and will start new girls sock pattern next!
      Thank You for great idea!
      Chrissy 👍🏻

    I’m working on the project and having a bit of difficulty with the heel. I’m at row 29. When I complete the sc around I have way more than 38 sc. Can you give more details on the heel? Thanks

      Deb,

      so sorry I just seen this comment. I have been so busy with special orders that I have not been on blog for a few weeks now. Hope I am not too late in answering your question. see image above for clarification. So you should have 8 rows going down side of heel, 16 stitches across top of foot, 8 rows up side of heel and 6 stitches across the bottom of foot. I’m not sure why you would have a lot more stitches then 38…except if you had more stitches in the round to begin with then the count of 34 that is called for on row 28. Make sure younhave the 8 down bothe sides of heel, the 16 across the top of foot and the 6 across the bottom of foot.

      hope this helps

      let me know

        I am looking forward to making these socks but I can’t get the gauge right after many attempts. The width is correct but the height is too short. I found a golden loop tutorial but I still can’t get it to work out right. Do you have any suggestions, by chance? Thank you!

        • OffTheHookByChrissy

          Vannie

          I rechecked my gauge and did find an issue with the height gauge between the 2 sizes in the pattern. My mistake…I have correct this issue not sure which size you were referring to but hope you get a better gauge now

          Thanks

  • larhonda roberts

    Chrissy, I looked over your pattern before I began and thought I understood all of the directions. However, I was wrong! lol I have been crocheting for more than 30 years and I have never heard of a chainless foundation. You specify that in row 1. Can you explain that to me? Thanks LaRhonda

    • OffTheHookByChrissy

      Hi LaRhonda

      Here is a great Youtube video on how to do the foundation dc stitch in the round. I like this stitch as it is super stretchy which is great for sock cuffs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AvWkgYExx8

      You can skip this stitch and do the basic chain 40 and then join in the round by slip stitching to 1st chain stitch made without twisting chains. Then double crochet in every chain stitch around so you have 40 double crochet in the round.

      Hope this helps and sorry it took so long to get back to you
      Chrissy
