Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Self-striping yarns are great. Its always a mystery to me how my coloring on a project will turn out when using this type of yarn. Seems like its always different each time I make something. These socks look like just what I have been wanting to make for a couple of my friends. Great find.

I am new to crochet and Ive worked all day on the cuff and now I'm stuck. I'm not under standing the instructions after Ive crocheted the 48 st's along the edge. Was I supposed to st the two edges together? and then move on the the ankle. Tami

Can these be worn with shoes? Every pattern I've tried come Come like slippers

Hi irinanagar I hope I can answer your question, when you chain31 and turn to crochet in the chain you start in the 2nd chain from the first stich and start your sc stich which will take you to the end of the chain will give you 30 stiches....... Chain one and start in the 2nd stich which will continue to give you a 30 stich chain, unless the instructions say to do differently you follow the same patter until the pattern says to change to some thing else. I hope this helps. If not my e-mail is sweetrose46@att.net

Hi, I'm a beginner and I just started to crochet these socks. Could someone please explain to me when you're making a cuff, the pattern calls for chaining 31, then sc in each chain, then chain 1 and sc in each sc. Does CH1 count as a sc here? For example, in the end of the row 3 how many sc should I have? 31 or 30? Thank you very much!!

I have never made socks but I can't wait to try these .

I have made several pair of this sock this winter. I love them and have a pair on right this minute. I can finish a pair in a day and a half crocheting while I watch tv in the evenings. I haven't bought socks in over three years. This pattern is my go-to when it comes to making socks for myself or for gifts. I have a set started right now in Red Heart Heart and Sole Berry Bliss that I will finish tonight.

Sherbet no R in Bet. There is no such word as SherbeRt BUT the socks are awesome, thank you!

I know, I know, the spelling police etc, but please change it to the correct spelling? Pretty Please?

They look great but how can I print the the pattern without having pages of other crap

Start at the picture with your cursor, highlight the picture and the actual pattern text, then open a Word Document or whatever you use for documents...and paste it in there. Easy..

Crazy rainbow!

The socks made me think of the fruit stripe gum I used to chew as a kid. Turns out the name is just Fruit Stripe. So either that or Fruit Loop. Better change the spelling so no copyright infringement! :-)
