Crochet Sock Anybody?

Well here we go with my first crochet sock, it's almost finished here, just have to change the yarn and shape the toe.


Now that's better it will keep my toes warm now, good fit too.

I used a ripple st pattern, I had never tried the ripple st before. Lots of colour changes, there fore lots of ends to sew in. The basic sock is very easy to make, just follow the pattern. I'm just wondering if I will get around to making it's pair, I did not enjoy making the sock as much as I thought. I picked it up and put it down for about a week. I could have made the complete pair in a couple of days if my interest was there. So I could have a sock for a decoration, or I may get enthused and complete the pair.


The pattern is from this pattern book

if all else fails, you could turn it into a fancy sock puppet :)

Are you going to post the pattern? Those are awesome socks! I've never seen crocheted ones that I cared for, but I don't like to knit all that well. :o)

Hi Theresa, the pattern is from a pattern book, so I can't supply it due to copyright. Cheers Cat.
