These were for the Craft My Wist swap, my partner had some adorable lace-up long socks on her Wist but I figured I could do a little better. I wanted to do something with a shaped, in-built heel and extra shaping around the calf and figured that an afterthought toe would work best.

I have never actually finished anything larger than a crochet toy and though I have made patterns, never anything this complex (and certainly not socks!). I am really pleased with the way they turned out and the single crochet leaves alot of room for embellishment. Being crochet, they can stretch (and are closer to knee-high but I didn't want to stretch them before my partner got them  Tongue) and can be laced tight for warmth or left looser to show off the lacing. The yarn was $2 per ball stuff from the discount store and I used about 6 balls.






calf shaping


toe


yarn and ribbon - closer to actual colours

My partner loved them (yay!), what do you think?

Alrighty, here is the pattern. It's a pdf file so it's easy to save or print and there are images to go with it. Enjoy but please remember not to sell the pattern or the socks, they are for you to make for yourself and your loved ones  Wink, k?

I have done my best to make it understandable, but what makes sense to me doesn't always make sense to others  Tongue, please let me know of any mistakes or if you have any queries

Also, this is the yarn I used. I have idea what to call it but I hope it helps  Tongue



the cuff says:
10x10cm = 18 rows and 13 stitches. 7mm/2 UK needles

Yay a reply already! Cheesy

I agree, the lace-up would look great on the back too! The pattern is pretty versatile and can easily accomodate longer feet or a higher (or shorter) sock.

As for a pattern... I actually wrote it myself so I could write it up for any Craftsters interested in making some. Bear in mind though I have no idea how to figure out the weight of the wool I used so there would be a little trial and error involved in that part Tongue
