Have you ever wondered how to crochet socks? I know it looks intimidating but it isn’t really that hard. Have you crocheted a hat before? Well then you already know how to work in the round! I’m confident that if you can make a hat then you can absolutely make a super cute pair of crochet socks. Sometimes socks are worked from the cuff down and sometimes they are worked from the toe up. I recommend a toe up pattern if this is your first time. You can try the sock on as you go to ensure that it’s going to fit! Check out all these great free crochet patterns and see which one strikes your fancy.
