These Free Crochet Socks are thin enough to wear with shoes, they stay in place, and are comfortable enough to wear all day long. if you haven’t ever made them, you may be surprised to discover that crochet socks are a really fun project.

If you ever crocheted a disaster socks before, it probably wasn’t your fault. Crochet socks that don’t have the perfect yarn/pattern combination will be too thick, won’t stay up, and can be downright uncomfortable to walk on. That’s not the case with these crochet socks.
With this Free Crochet Pattern you’ll learn how to crochet a properly fitting sock with the perfect sock yarn. Gone are the days you have to skip out on handmade socks because you don’t know how to knit.
