Materials List

y About two 1.75 ounce (50 gram) skeins of sock yarn (or fingering weight yarn) y Size G (4.25mm) crochet hook (or size to obtain gauge)

5 sts x 5 rows = 1 inch (2.54cm) in single crochet. (Please be sure to check your gauge. I tend to need a larger hook than most patterns call for, so my patterns tend to call for a larger hook than you might need.)

The Pattern
Make two. Chain 16 to work on 15 sts. This makes a 3-inch (7.62cm) wide cuff for ankle socks. If you want a bigger cuff, just add stitches. Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook, and in each remaining ch across (15 sts). Ch 1, and turn. Row 2: Sc in each back loop only, across (15 sts). Ch 1, and turn. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 8 inches (20.32cm), or 1/2 inch (1.27cm) smaller than foot width. Sew short ends together to form a tube. I slip stitch across so I don't have to cut the yarn, and re-attach it. (The seam will be the back of the sock.) Sc around for 2 rounds (36 sts each round for the size I'm making here). Sc across front half of tube (18 sts). Chain 18, and attach on the other side of the tube. (The space between the cuff and the chain is where the heel will go later.) Sc around front sts and back chain (36 sts). Sc around until piece measures 6 inches (15.24cm), or 1 1/2 inches (3.81cm) before toe decrease (excluding cuff). Decrease 1 st on each side (that's 2 sts per round) for 1 1/2 inches (3.81cm) (it was about 7 rows for my sock). Attach yarn at heel opening. Sc around once. Sc around decreasing 1 st on each side for 1 1/2 inches (3.81cm). (You make the heel the same way as the toe decrease.) Sew toe and heel seams.
