Christmas is coming and everybody wants to surprise their relatives and friends with cute hand-made souvenirs. There are lots of variants and today we’re going to share one more idea – tiny Christmas socks.
You can use these socks as pendants for your mobile phone, brooches, ear-rings or you can make a small decoration for your home or just put them on the feet of a Barbie doll. When the first sock is ready it’s difficult to stop, it’s an addictive process 😀
How to crochet tiny Christmas socks
Free crochet pattern
- 100% mercerized cotton yarn, 1 mm crochet hook. The socks on the photo are very tiny, they fit Barbie doll leg (if you use the yarn of other weight and larger hook, your socks will be bigger)
The pattern is very simple. The only difficulty may occur while crocheting the heel, that’s why this part is explained in more details.
Every sock has 4 parts.
Rounds 1-3 – toe of the sock
Round 4-10 – main part, between the heel and toes
Rounds 11-17 – heel
Rounds 18-22 – upper part of the sock
By combining colours and width of stripes you can get a numerous quantity of bright socks. Everything depends on your own imagination and yarn at your disposal.
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring or in the second st from the hook 
Rnd 6: (inc) repeat 6 times 
Rnd 3: (inc, sc in the next st) repeat till the end of the round 
Rnd 4-10: sc in all 18 st 
Start crocheting the heel
Row 11: sc in the next 13 st, 1 ch and turn 
Row 12: sc in the next 13 st from the inner side in the opposite direction, 1 turning chain, turn 
Row 13: sc in the next 13 st, 1 ch, turn

Row 16: sc in the next st, dec, dec (3 st together), dec, 1 ch, turn 
Row 17: 5 stitches together, insert the hook in each stitch and draw the loop, so you should get 6 loops on the hook. Crochet all 6 loops at the same time. Fasten off and cut the yarn. 
Start crocheting the top of the sock.
Rnd 18: After crocheting the heel, you get a sock without an upper part. Join the yarn in any place of the edge and start crocheting in rounds with single crochets. There should be 17 of them, but it’s Ok if there are more or less of them. 
Rnd 19-22: sc in all 17 st 
Fasten off, cut the yarn. The sock is ready. Decorate the sock with a tie, ribbon, beads or buttons. Of course, you have your own ideas.
You can crochet 2 identical socks and make funny ear-rings.
