The Crochet Family Socks pattern has sizes for most of the family. Sizes include 2/4 years old, 6/8 years old and then in ladies 5/6, 7/8 and men’s 10/11.
Conversions in Finished Foot Length
- Child 2/4 yrs 6″ [15 cm]
- Child 6/8 yrs 7½” [19 cm]
- Lady’s Size 5/6 9½” [24 cm]
- Lady’s Size 7/8 10½” [26.5 cm]
- Men’s 11½” [28 cm]
I don’t have access to sizes beyond 11 1/2″. Generally speaking, but not always the case, for larger feet, you will extend the instep to be longer. You will need to take a guess or try them on before starting the heel or toe region depending on which way you are crocheting.
All sizes start with a minimum of 2 balls but as the sizes get to Lady’s 7/8 you will need 3 balls and men’s sizes 10/11 is 4 balls.
Gauging is important, so don’t forget that step or your sock may not fit right.

I would definitely need to measure the length of my foot. I’m not sure I understand the sizing. There is a huge gap between a woman’s shoe size 8 (men’s 6) and a man’s shoe size 10 (woman’s 12).
