Christmas socks

Hello hello hello!

How are you today?

WWOOOOOOOOW! I am soooo thrilled by all your wonderful comments concerning the little socks:) Thank you so much! I could not make you wait longer so I managed to finish quickly the “how to” so I can share it with you today 🙂

It is very easy you’ll see but I hope that I’ll find a way to explain it to you by using simple words…

For these I used Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn with a 4.5mm crochet hook…You can crochet with the yarn that you want but careful to pick up the right size crochet hook 😉

The socks are made using a single stitch (apart the beginning chain stitch (maille en l’air in french)) and it is: d.c (U.K terms) or s.c (U.S terms) or maille serree (in French)!

I’m gonna make with you step by step this one:

Here is a graphic pic to show you from where to begin and where to end with colorful parts:

I’m gonna explain it to you with pics 🙂 Don’t worry it is very easy 🙂

So? Are you ready? Did you prepare some yarn and a crochet hook? Let’s maaaaaake it ! yahooooooooo! 😀

I suggest that you make a sock with a single color to try out the pattern first and then you can make your own multi colorful one 🙂

For this one I used 6 different colors as show in the graphic above…

PART1:

Let’s begin with Part1 in the graphic pic (purple and yellow)

First (with the purple color) you begin with a circle of 4ch chain (4 mailles en l’air pour commencer)

R1: 10 dc (or sc) in the circle (10 mailles serrees dans le cercle)

R2: You crochet 2 dc in every dc of the previous round that make a total of 20 dc ( crocheter 2 m.s dans chaque maille du tour precedent ca fait: 20 m.s au total)

R3 to R11: 20 dc (20 mailles serrees) (R1 to R6: in purple R7 to R11: in yellow)

That make a total of 10 rounds of 20 dc. (purple and yellow colors part)

END OF PART 1

So? Is that ok for you so far? You just did the Part 1 🙂 bravo!

Let’s continue… shall we?

PART2:

R12: 10 dc (10 m.s) (With the dark blue color you crochet on half of the stitches of R11, that makes a total of 10 dc)

and you continue making rows of 10 dc until R17…

(avec la couleur bleu nuit crocheter sur seulement 10 m.s du tour precedent ca fait un total de 10 m.s)

You have now something like these pics above and down…

So R12 to R17: 10 dc (10m.s)

You just did PART2!

You have now something similar to the pic above.

After crocheting R17 you have to close and sew the right part of your sock (see the graphic pic at the beginning of this post : sew here after crocheting part2)

Apres avoir crochete PART2 fermer le cote droit de la chaussette par quelques points de suture (regarder le graphique du debut de ce post pour savoir ou)

END OF PART2

PART3:

With the turquoise color: R18: 22 d.c (22m.s) 

For R18 you have to join together the dark blue part and the yellow part with a round of 22 dc (22m.s) as shown on this picture: (6 dc on the dark blue part + 10 dc on the yellow part + 6 dc on the dark blue part = 22 d.c )

R18: (6 m.s sur la partie bleu nuit + 10 m.s sur la partie jaune + 6 m.s sur la partie bleu nuit = 22 m.s au total )

and you continue from R18 to R 33: 22 d.c ( De R18 a R33: 22 m.s)

R18 to R22: 22 dc with the turquoise color (22 m.s)

R23 to R27: 22 d.c with the red color

and finally R28 to R33: 22 d.c with the pink color

You close your little sock by making a chain of 17 ch so you can hang it 🙂 (fermer avec une chainette de 17 mailles en l’air pour accrocher la chaussette)

You did it ! Your little sock is ready 🙂

You can embellish it by adding some buttons, ribbons or beads…

Ufff! It is done 🙂 I don’t know if I was clear enough for you to understand…do excuse me if no (this is the first time I make this kind of step by step pattern)

If you have any question, do not hesitate… I’ll be more than happy to help 🙂

Do not forget to tell me if you ever crochet these little Christmas socks I would really really love to see your own version…

Kisses to all!

and Happy crocheting 🙂

Less than six weeks before Christmas :)))

By | November 14th, 2011|Christmas, Crocheted little socks, Uncategorized|77 Comments

Good morning to you sweet people around the globe …

Hope that you’ve had a beautiful week end with your loved ones 🙂

This week end I worked on something “Christmassy” (is that a word?) that I want to share with you….

I did not decorate the house yet…I’m waiting for the 22 of November as it is Independence day here and Hubby and the girls will be at home so it will be like a BIG-PARTY-DECORATING-DAY  🙂 but I’m already preparing some crochet goodies 🙂

Before showing you what I’ve been up to I want to thank you again and again for visiting “Le monde de Sucrette”. It is always a huge pleasure reading your comments 🙂 Some of you asked about the yarn I’m using to make the neck warmer… Well it is, once more: Nako Vizon  a 100% acrylic Turkish brand yarn and I don’t think they have an online store 🙁 I buy it myself form a local yarn shop here…

And now… what I did this week end….tadaaaaaaaaaa….

Small Christmas socks to decorate my mantel (this year is the first Christmas we are spending with a mantel in the house and I so want to decorate it as I’m dreaming about it for years 🙂 )

Aren’t they cute my little Christmas socks?

I kind of invented the pattern and it took me several trials and unraveling several times to finally get the result I wanted to have and now I’m really proud of my little Christmas socks 🙂

The pattern is very easy and after the first one is done I made the 3 others in a couple of hours 🙂

But on the other side, writing down the pattern is very difficult for me as I do not make usually written patterns and a graphic one is impossible in that case because it is a 3D object but I did make an effort because you really worth it 🙂

So if you’re interested in making little Cristmas socks yourself… I’m ready 🙂 to write a pattern for you 🙂 A written pattern with step by step explaining  pics 🙂 yaaahoooo!!!

These little socks are beautiful on a mantel or hanged on the Christmas tree or anywhere around the house. They can be filled with candies or small toys and will make cute small handmade gifts…

They can be embellished with ribbons, buttons, beads etc to make them cuter and cuter 🙂

The yarn I used here is (once more) : Nako Vizon (my favorite) worked with a 4.5mm crochet hook…

So, my sweeties, if you liked these cuties, prepare your hook and some colorful yarn and wait for me…

I’ll come back very soon with the “how-to-make-these-little-socks” 🙂

Have a colorful monday!
