Hello! This week I'm focusing on socks as I kick off another month with a sock design for pattern of the month. It's my Fiddle Socks pattern's time to shine, a design many of my followers love because it requires DK weight yarn, not the usual 4ply! Let's dive in (feet first of course!) and look at the pattern ...
- It's my fifth sock design and it's a cuff-down one.
- The texture on the leg & upper foot is created with a half treble V-stitch.
- I used Lay Family Yarn DK (75% superwash merino/ 25% nylon, 225m/100g) in the colourway Fireside Cuddles
- The heel is shaped with a heel flap, heel turn & gusset - giving excellent fit & stretch over the instep.
- This is an intermediate level pattern, written in UK & US terms.
- I’ve made several YouTube videos to help you succeed with this pattern because I want everyone to feel confident about crocheting socks!
- The pattern is available on Ravelry, on LoveCrafts and on my website.
- The Leg, Foot & Toe of these socks are worked in the round. The Heel, Heel Turn & Heel Flap are worked in rows.
- There is a schematic to help you visualise the construction.
- To obtain the perfect fit; measure the length and circumference of the foot you are crocheting the socks for and then follow the instructions for the width you require, adjusting the length as necessary.
- The pattern has been tested and tech edited, giving you confidence to go ahead and crochet.
The end result is a super comfortable pair of socks!
I’m totally here for you if you have any questions - please reach out to me in the comments or on Instagram!
Until next time, happy crocheting,
