Hi - Do you use selfpatterning yarn for these, or just change colour every couple of rows?

Hi KnitwitUK, I used self patterning yarn for the socks in the photos, but there is no reason why you couldn't change yarns every few rows to create stripes. The tutorial is just a template really, you can use different yarns and different stitches for different effects.

Work a few rows of back post/front post double crochet ribbing then fasten off

OK I really don't understand this.   Could some body show me a picture I am still learning crochet?

hi Sher, Back post, front post ribbing is where you alternate back post double crochet and front post double crochet which gives a ribbing effect. I have found a tutorial for you here http://www.stitchdiva.com/custom.aspx?id=126
Hope this helps!

So you just keep alternating between the front loop and back loop.  I will try tommorrow.

Thanks  Sher

hi milobo, ive juststarted making your socks and im a bit confused about what you do with the heel.

Do you work on hel then fasten off and reattach to the instep and then work each row of this into the heel?

do you have any pictures of this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi KnitwitUK, Sorry, I didn't make it very clear in the tutorial. I haven't got any pictures, but will try to take some on the next sock I make. Basically, when you are working the heel, you are only working back and forth on half of total number of stitches ( the bottom half) and you leave the instep part unworked. When you have finished working the heel, you then work across the unworked instep stitches, and then continue working in the round to form the leg of the sock.
Hope this helps

I've been lamenting that I can't find a good crocheted sock pattern and my knitting skills are far too limited to attempt that... I have to try this now, thanks for the tute!

There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality.  There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury.  And then there's the dark side.

Thank you so much for your help and your tute.  Even with my very limited crocheting skills I was able to make these.


OF course it is way to hot to wear them in this 25 C weather.  So I am happily waiting for winter to wear my bright happy crocheted socks  Grin

Thank you Thank you Thank You
