Crocheted Women’s Socks

Posted on March 2, 2012

This free crochet pattern is a variation of my fingerless gloves as you basically start out with the same pattern and change it when you come to the heel. The basic pattern is crocheted in the round and is designed to fit a woman who wears a size 9-10 medium shoe. I also crocheted a pair of these socks smaller and I have included those changes at the end of the pattern below.

Women’s Crocheted Socks

2) Patons Stretch Sock Yarn 1.75 oz each – Sugar

F (3.75 mm) size crochet hook for ribbing only
G (4.25 mm) size crochet hook

Women’s shoe size 9-10 M socks

Make 2 socks as follows:
Using F hook for ribbing, leave a long tail and ch 11.

Row 1
Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in ea st down to the end. (10 Sc)

Row 2-37
Ch 1, turn. Working in BLO, Sc in ea st across.
Length is approx. 7-1/2 inches long. Check the fit of the sock cuff here. You want it snug so if needed, adjust your rows for the best fit.

Leave yarn attached and just slip hook out of last st so you can weave closed the ribbing.
Using the long tail from the beginning row, weave closed the ribbing cuff by joining row 1 to row 37. Ribbing cuff measures 3-3/4 inches flat and 1-1/2 inches across.

Rnd 1
Slip the F hook back into last st of row 37. Now working into both loops, Sc in same st and in ea st along end sts of cuff. (Approx. 40 Sc) Don’t join at end of round but just continue working in the round without joining or turning as you work the body of the sock.

Rnd 2-16
Using G hook now, Sc in ea st of rnd. (Approx length 3-3/4 inches.)

Rnd 17 (Heel opening)
Ch 20, sk 20 sts, and Sc in ea st around back to where heel starts.

Rnd 18-54
Sc in ea st of sock and in ea st of chain working in rounds until desired length is reached. For size woman’s size 9-10 this was 54 rounds.

Rnd 55-63 (Toe)
Work 2 Sc tog (1 dec) on each side of sock for the last 9 rounds.
Leave long tail to st through last stitches and pull closed toe end. FO.

Rnd 1 (Heel)
Attach yarn at side corner of heel opening and Sc evenly around.

Rnd 2-12
Work 2 Sc tog (1 dec) on each side of V corner of heel opening. (2 Dec’s on rnd)
Tip: I found working the dec on the 1st st and then the 2nd dec on the next st after the V corner of the heel looked best.

I worked this pattern for 12 rounds and then worked 2 Sc tog around until there were 6 sts left and used the tail to close the heel.

Option for a women’s shoe size 6-1/2 – 7 socks

Follow the pattern above but begin toe decrease at about round 40. Do the same 9 rounds of decreases for the toe as above and close toe the same as above. Yarn used was less than two skeins of Patons denim jacquard wool sock yarn.

Heel: Work pattern as above to close heel but only go 11 rounds before working 2 Sc tog around to end with 6 sts. Close heel and finish off.

BLO – Back Loop Only
Ch – Chain
Dec – Decrease
Ea – Each
FO – Fasten Off
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk – Skip
Sl St – Slip Stitch
St – Stitch
