Basic Crochet Socks Pattern

Basic-Crocheted-Socks

These Basic Crocheted Socks are great to make. They're versatile and allow you to brush up on your crochet skills. These are an easy crochet pattern you can give to a friend or keep for yourself. Use Lion Brand wool yarn to complete this free crochet pattern, and make one in every color. Warm feet are happy feet during the cold winter months!

Crochet Hook: G/6 or 4 mm hook, H/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Size
Women's S (M)
Sample shown: 10" long x 8.5" around ball of foot (25 cm x 21.5 cm)
Materials
• Lion Brand Lion Wool (www.lionbrand.com/yarns/lionWool.html) 100% wool (3 oz/85 g, 158 yd/144 m ball): 2 balls #113 Scarlet, or colour of your choice
• Crochet hooks sizes G-6 and H-8 (4 and 5 mm) [sizes H-8 and I-9 (5 and 5.5 mm)], or size to obtain gauge
• large-eyed, blunt needle
Gauge
For S: 5 single crochet = 1" (2.5 cm) with size H-8 (5 mm) hook.
For M: 4 single crochet = 1" (2.5 cm) with size I-9 (5.5 mm) hook.
Be sure to check your gauge.
Notes
These socks are easy to make in one flat piece. When finished, they will resemble Turkish knitted socks, with the heel appearing to stick out when folded. On the foot, however, they fit exactly as a commercial sock.
The leg can be made longer by crocheting the leg section an inch or two (2.5 – 5 cm) longer. The length of the foot can also be increased, ensuring that the top and bottom of the foot are the same length.
Ribbing
With smaller hook, chain 11.
Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook, single crochet in each chain across, turn – 10 single crochet.
Row 2: Chain 1, working in back loops only, single crochet in each single crochet across, turn – 10 single crochet.
Repeat Row 2 for 40 more rows. Do not turn. Working along side of ribbing, work 1 single crochet in each row, turn – 40 single crochet.
Leg
With larger hook, work back and forth in single crochet, working through both loops, on 40 stitches until piece measures 7" (18 cm) from beginning of sock. Cut yarn.
Top of foot
Row 1: With right side facing and larger hook, join yarn in 11th stitch from edge, chain 1, single crochet in same stitch, single crochet in each of next 19 single crochet, turn.
Row 2: Chain 1, single crochet in each single crochet across. Turn – 20 single crochet.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 6" (15 cm) above joining or desired length, allowing 2" (5 cm) for toe, ending on wrong side. Note: The heel will add another 2" (5 cm). Measure foot and subtract 4" (10 cm) total for heel and toe to determine desired length.
Top of toe
*Row 1: Chain 1, decrease 1 single crochet in next 2 single crochet, single crochet across to within last 2 single crochet, decrease 1 stitch in next 2 single crochet, turn.
Row 2: Chain 1, work even in single crochet, turn.
Repeat last two rows until 10 single crochet remain, ending with Row 2.
Bottom of toe
Row 1: Chain 1, 2 single crochet in first single crochet, single crochet across to last single crochet, 2 single crochet in last single crochet, turn.
Row 2: Chain 1, work even in single crochet, turn.
Repeat last 2 rows until there are 20 single crochet.*
Bottom of foot
Work even on 20 single crochet until piece measures 6" (15 cm) or same length as straight portion of foot.
Heel
Repeat from * to * as for toe shaping. Fasten off.
Finishing
Sew back leg seam. Fold sock in middle of the toe and sew both sides of foot. Fold the heel in half, as with toe, and sew sides. Position the heel piece so that centre of heel is in line with leg seam, and sew.

The Queen Victoria Crochet Scarf Pattern

The Queen's Scarf of Honour

One of eight scarves Queen Victoria crocheted for presentation to members of her forces fighting in South Africa. This is the scarf awarded to Private R.R. Thompson on display at the Canadian War Museum.
In the last year of her long life, Queen Victoria crocheted eight scarves for presentation to members of her forces fighting in South Africa. Four were earmarked for members of colonial units, with one each going to "the most distinguished private soldier" serving in the forces of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The other four went to members of the British regular army. The Canadian scarf was awarded to Private R.R. Thompson for his actions in going to the aid of wounded comrades at Paardeberg on 18 and 27 February 1900.
With the passage of time, awareness of the scarf faded from Canadian memory. In 1964 Bombardier Kenneth Richardson, of the Royal Canadian Artillery, located the scarf with Thompson's family in Ireland. It was returned to Canada by Thompson's nephew in 1965, and has been on display at the Canadian War Museum ever since.
For further information click here.

queenvic

This is my version of the scarf – albeit minus the tassels and in my mind a more appealing colour. I decided to create and document this pattern as it doesn’t seem to be documented elsewhere on the internet and could be a valuable educational resource for encouraging children to learn crochet :-)
Skill Level: Easy
Materials: 100g DK or worsted weight wool, 6mm crochet hook and darning needle.
Measurements: 8.25” x 54” approx.
Pattern:
ch 27 sts + 2
Row 1:  work three dc into 5th ch from hook, *sk 3 ch, work a dc three times into next ch*, ** rep to end.
Row 2: ch 3, *work 3 dc under next sp between triple dc cluster*, rep to end
Repeat row 2 until 82 rows are complete.
If adding tassels then on the original Queen Victoria crochet scarf they were 4” in length.
To Finish: darn all ends in.
