A really simple pair of socks

This is a really quick project and can make a lovely gift for anytime of the year, but you can also start on your next year’s Xmas gifts right now

Crochet simple pair of socks


For this project I went through a few ideas, and came up with this pattern. I have used our Indian acrylic 4-ply yarn and am very happy with the end product. For a good fit, I suggest that you get a good foot (pencil) imprint of the person you are making this for, along with measurements of Round Ankle (which will not come in the foot print). Using a standard size (Shoe size 6) “may” work, but with handmades, I always prefer more information than less.
Remember that the fit will depend on the stretch of your yarn, as well as the tension with which you work. Looser your tension, looser the fit. Also remember that most yarns stretch with use, so a slightly snug fit is always a good thing.

A full time mum, a part time social service volunteer, animal fosterer and a Guinness World Record holder I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'. We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them. We strongly believe in Refuse-Reuse-Recycle, which seeps into projects too. Why did I start blogging? Over the years, I found many patterns that specify yarns that are not available locally. There are also hundreds of free patterns on the web, which are not in English or which only have a chart and no written instructions. I am fortunate that I am able to read charts and I just thought it would be lovely to share these ideas as I make my own projects, using our available local yarns. I started my blog page in October 2013, but was a really sporadic contributor. In the past year and a half, I have been writing diligently and have had a lot of really interesting creative products made. I am happy to be part of this similar minded group of crafters. ACHIEVEMENTS : In October 2016, my blog was adjudged among the Top 100 Crochet Blogs to follow http://blog.feedspot.com/crochet_blogs/ In January 2016, I won the Guinness World Record for being part of the Record for the World's largest blanket https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK7RYDGj_xk In 2014 and 2016, I played the Ravellenic Games on the Ravelry Craft group and have won great (digital) accolades http://www.ravelry.com/people/shyamanivas

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
