New Year, New Socks

First of all, happy new year! I hope 2021 is kinder to you all.

Secondly, as you can probably tell, my first finished project of this year is me-size crocheted socks!

A pair of crocheted socks sit, stacked on top of each other, on a white brick background. The socks are striped with hot pink, pale purple, grey, pale pink, and dark brown.

I wasn’t a huge fan of my previous knitted ones, but these feel a lot thicker and sturdier.

A lose-up of the stitch used to make the leg and foot of the sock. It creates a slightly loose V-shape compared to the more solid heel and toe.

The pattern is from an old Simply Crochet magazine, and it’s by Rohn Strong. It was also ridiculously easy compared to the knitted one! I had no trouble working out how these were constructed.

The socks, stacked and folded in half, sit on an open magazine. The magazine is open to the sock pattern, and images of the model socks are clearly visible.
The socks are pictured on the author's feet, on a pale grey fabric background. The toes of the socks are at the top of the image.

Remind me to turn these socks inside out before whipstitching the ends, though….

The socks are again pictured on the author's feet, but the feet are crossed at the ankle.
The socks, stacked on top of each other, lie on the grey fabric background next to a large ball of blue yarn. The blue yarn is striped in shades of white and blue like the pink yarn.

I also want to make a pair in this blue yarn that I used for Petra’s jumper, but with slightly longer legs. I’m hoping to get around to it this summer, but maybe it’ll be next New Year’s Day that I’ll post about winter socks in summertime!

Anyways, see ya!
