I think they are more slippers than socks, but could be socks.

Intended use is to wear inside my slippers which are like cheap ugg boots.  I like to put my feet up & won't wear slippers on the sofa.  This = v cold feet in the winter.
They were made using 1 2.5 uk hook to start with around toes and heal and a 4 uk hook for the main foot area.  It is cheap worsted wool

they are comfy & v bright
I'd make changes, to them but c&c appreciated

OOooooo, the cogs are turning here!

How long did it take to make those blossom? Do you have to be an advanced hooker to do these?

I'm still learning to crochet and I'm trying to come up with a holiday gift idea for my mom. Smiley

Didn't take me too long.  2 hours a night for a week.  Really simple to make.  I'm a learner too which is why I make these.

I used 2.5 uk hook with orange cheap 4ply worsted wool.  I started with 14 chain which is the length of my big toe to little toe.  Then double stitch along it.  At the end I did 4 in last chain.  Then I went down the other side of the chain and 4 in last chain.  You now have an oval.  Then I went round the first oval without adding any additional stitiches.  I went round again, but added a stitch at each end.  I did this for about 8 rounds of double stitch alternate adding stitches on every other row.  Then I moved to treble stitcch all the way up to my ankle.  Then I make a chain away from the sock around the back of my foot.  Then I double crochet reducing each row until I've made the heal part.  I've considered going up over the ankle and leg which would make them even warmer.

Very comfy and bright.  We've just come back from holiday in our caravan in dorset.  I wore them at night as the evenings near the sea are getting a little chilly around the feet now.
