Crochet Socks for Beginners

This is a fabulous beginner project for beginners to crochet socks for the entire family. The pattern is provided in 2/4 years, 6/8 years, ladies 5/6, ladies 7/8 and mens sizes.

The pattern works from the toe up. Meaning you start at the toe and work towards the cuff of the top of the socks. For me, I like to work on socks in this direction verses cuff down. Just a personal choice.

In the tutorial provided below, I take you through the pattern doing the 2/4 years of sizes. As I state in the tutorial, if you are doing other sizes, just substitute my instructions with counts and measurements that reflect the size you are working on. The placement of the stitch markers and steps involved, as there are 6 steps total, are what matter the most.

So if you want to play along. Look above and click “GET PATTERN” and follow this tutorial using the sizes shown in the pattern. It’s rare for me to do sock tutorials, hopefully this will help those who have been emailing us.

We also have socks for Babies with a matching tutorial. Get my free pattern and tutorial here for those.

    The written pattern starts at the calf but the video starts at the toe. That confused me so much. Can someone help me understand please

    • Mikey

      That’s strange. I just opened the pattern and it says to start at the toe. I’m unable to duplicate why that’s not showing like that for you. I’m sorry.

      • Melesia

        The one I’m looking at ribbing is first

      • Mikey

        I’m not sure. The pattern showcased here is the Toe Up Socks starting from the toe. I’m sorry. I don’t see the pattern you are referencing as this pattern starts at the toe.

      • Melesia

        Thank you so much. I’ve found the correct pattern.

    Hi Mikey,
    My two balls of patron kroy are not exactly the same color. If you were to do half of a sock in one color and the rest in another color, at what point in the pattern would you consider halfway? Or how would you suggest working with two different colors? I’m doing the size 5/6. Thank you!

    • Mikey

      It’s trendy not to have matching socks, especially in handmade. 🙂 I would do one of each colour. 🙂

  4. Raquel

    HELP! For the round after the toe widening, the round you repeat for the lengthening of the foot, how does it begin? I am stuck!

    Ch 1. 1 sc in each sc to end of round.

    Does this mean you don’t put a sc in the stitch with the chain? Thanks for your help.

    Where can I find the written pattern?

    • Mikey

      I have just added a bit blue download button to make it easier to see for you.

      • Cheryl

        Hi. Would like to have a go at these but can’t find the pattern for the ladies 7-8

      • Mikey

        The pattern that is linked has the 7/8 size in fuscia colouring. Each of the sizes are represented by a colour of print in the pattern.

      • Natalie

        Hi Mikey,

        I really admire your sock crochet videos. They are so helpful for a beginner like me. For this pair of socks would the largest size work for my husband who wears a size 12 shoe? What modifications, if any would you recommend for a male who has an other than average sized foot? Thank you for your excellent tutorials! 😊

      • Mikey

        That’s one thing I don’t know about. I never studied clothing design. I went through engineering. I don’t have the skill set to design clothing or altering patterns like this because the anatomy of sizing changes not only in lengths but also in circumference. I really don’t know the answer to be frank. I would think about trying to locate a free sock pattern in that size of other designs and see what they are adjusting. I think that would be a safe bet.

  6. Perry

    Hi There! I’m working on this right now and I realized a discrepancy. After the toe portion moving onto Round 3, you say that Lady’s Size 5/6 should have 48 single crochets around, but the sheet says 54. I did 54, and it started looking as wide as a stocking for Christmas. So I pulled back allllllll the way after realizing how wide it was (I had continued into “Next Rnd” for probably 5 rows before seeing how bad it really was) to find out that you can’t acquire 48 sticks. Only 46. So now I’m really confused and frustrated because I just lost probably half my progress…. Help… Which numbers are right? Was I just doing it wrong? Is it supposed to look that wide? My numbers were right up until the “repeat round 3” portion.

    • Raquel

      Hello, I am struggling with this pattern too. Did you complete the socks? What did you decide about the ladies size 5/6 size?

      • Perry

        I never finished these, sorry. I never heard back about how to resolve the issue so I pulled the whole thing apart and found a different project to work on

      • Raquel

        Thanks for getting back to me. My sock also is coming out wide and then the seam goes at an angle. Ugh! I really wanted to be able to finish these.

      • I see Mikey has video’s for the socks, are they any help in answering your issue? As for the stitch after the chain from what I glanced at it looks like they’re all in the same stitch as the chained stitch.

    Hi everyone. I’ve never crocheted socks and found this pattern video. Unfortunately I can’t get the written pattern anymore. Would anyone have it to share with me please? Thank you


    • Mikey

      Link is fixed. Yarnspirations did an upgrade. 🙂

    • Michelle

      Hi Mikey!
      First, great tutorial and thank you for the simple explanations.
      Second, I’m a woman size 10W and have difficulty adjusting the pattern to fit my size. How would I go about that I wonder? ?
      Thanks in advance ☺️☺️☺️

      • |It’s really hard to say, not everyone’s tension is the same, I would suggest trying doing the pattern for the men’s size. I think that would be the closest, I have the same size feet and if I were to try socks it’s likely the one I would go with.

      • Michelle

        Thank you so much! ☺️☺️ I’ll try that ?☺️

      • Micjelle

        As of now I can’t seem to get the pattern. Only one I can download is the kids one..????

      • It’s all one pattern, the bigger sizes are in brackets after the smallest size for each round.

      • Michelle

        Ah yes!!! lol how did I miss that? ? thank you ☺️

      • No worries, it happens, I still overlook it from time to time, halfway through a pattern, I’ve become a pro at frogging.

  9. I love to crochet and also I love knitting.
    And I make scarft a lot. And also make knitting hat but I like so much
    But I make more scarft.

  10. Cindy

    Wonderful tutorial and really appreciate the written pattern as well!!

  11. Sherri Dale

    Could I send you picture of the crochet projects I have complete from your patterns. I don’t see were to send them too.

  12. Kelli Tomasunas

    I have a question regarding this sock pattern. I’ve finished the toe and moved on to what the pattern calls “next rnd”. I’ve followed the pattern (ch 1. 1 sc in each sc to end of rnd), but I notice that my seam is moving, where yours did not. Am I supposed to continue on “sc in same sp as last sl st” as called for in the toe to maintain my seam on the bottom of the sock?

    I’m looking for men’s hat patterns x-lg.

  14. Dianna Bosshardt

    Thank you for the written pattern. I am grateful when the person sharing realizes ? ? ? that I can’t sit with my device or computer, stopping and starting a tutorial to complete a project. And I’m a text learner as well as visual learner. But as an old experienced crocheted and knitter usually all I need is a photo and a pattern.

    Just for that, Mikey, I’m going to like you on Facebook and see all the fabulous projects I wish I could get done but know I never will. I have become a collector of pattern and yours will be a fun page to follow. Thanks again. Happy 4th. Be safe!. DB
