Cozy Cottage Socks – A Free Crochet Pattern

I love socks! Especially cozy ones! So I thought it only fitting (and practical) to design myself a pair for our cold cottage floors.

I have always loved socks. I loved getting them for Christmas when I was younger, I still love to get them now.  So after I picking up this  %100 Canadian Wool by Fleece and Harmony and playing with it for a bit, I knew exactly what I wanted to make!

 

Wool Socks!

If you’ve been following me for a little bit you’ll know that I absolutely love the knit look, but I’m terrible at knitting.  I was so happy when I discovered the knit stitch (Sometimes called the waistcoat stitch).  I could have that knit look I desired in my crochet! (Feel free to browse my blog for more great patterns featuring this stitch such as my Canada Toque or Classic Christmas Stocking).

These socks are crocheted in a beautiful %100 Canadian made wool by Fleece and Harmony.  They are out of Prince Edward Island in Canada and I had the pleasure of visiting them last summer while on holidays with my family.  You can check out some of their gorgeous yarns HERE and best of all, they ship!

The wool I used is worsted (10 WPI) weigh yarn so these socks are quite cozy, great as reading socks and for lounging around the house or cottage.  Once you get the hang of the knit stitch, I am sure that you will love them.

I’ve designed them with a shorter cuff, I you would like to make them longer, you may do so, just remember to take into account the extra yarn you will need.

The pattern includes three women’s sizes: shoe size 5/6, 7/8, 9/10.

Following the written pattern you will find a handy video tutorial where I will make the smallest size for you.
