CROCHET HOOK: 3.0 mm crochet hook, or the size needed to obtain the gauge.

YOU WILL ALSO NEED: 2 stitch markers, tapestry needle and scissors.

Gauge

Work 12 stitches and 9 rows in HDC using a 3.0 mm crochet hook and and Sock weight yarn to measure 5 x 5 cm (2 x 2 inches).

Pattern Notes

  • The pattern is available in two sizes: 0 – 6 months size, which is available below, and 6 – 12 months size, which is available in the PDF pattern only.
  • The yarn I am using for this pattern is 75% wool (superwash) and 25% Polyamide. This type of yarn gives the socks the right amount of stretchiness you need. You can find the yarn here.
  • Since this yarn can be a bit itchy on sensitive skin, I would recommend avoiding wearing it on naked skin. They are stretchy enough to go over the leggings or a romper.
  • All the patterns available on this website are written in the same straightforward way. Please hop over to the How To Read A Pattern page if you need help or any additional guidance.
  • This pattern is classified as an easy, beginner-friendly pattern. The video tutorial can give you additional guidance and help you during your creative process. However, please keep in mind that you need to produce two socks equal in size. This can sometimes be challenging for new crocheters, especially those who have a hard time keeping the even tension throughout the project. If that is you, I recommend practicing your stitches on larger projects, like blankets and shawls, and coming back to this pattern later.
  • This pattern is using US Crochet Terms.

Instructions

Crochet Baby Socks Pattern – Little Bunny

The pattern for crochet baby blanket is written in two simple steps:

  • toes
  • middle
  • heel
  • and upper part/ribbing.

Please, read the instructions carefully. Don’t skip any parts of the pattern and make sure you are not accidentally losing or adding additional stitches to the pattern. That might affect the final look of your design.

TOES

Take the Sock weight yarn in the color of your choice and 3.0 mm crochet hook and create a foundation chain made of 7 chs.

Work in rounds. At the end of each round, join the round with a slip stitch (ss). Do not turn after each round.

Round 1: Start in the 2nd ch from the hook. Work 3 hdc into the same. Work 1 hdc into next 4. Work 6 hdc into the last chain. Now continue on the opposite side. Work 1 hdc into next 4. Finish the round with 3 hdc sts into the last ch. Join the round with a ss. = 20 sts.

Round 2: Ch 1. Work 1 hdc into the first one. Work 2 hdc sts into next two sts. Work 1 hdc into next 4 sts. 2 hdc into next 2. Work 1 hdc into next 2. Work 2 hdc into next 2 sts. Work 1 hdc into next 4 sts. 2 hdc into next 2. Finish the round with 1 hdc into the last one. Join the round with ss. = 28 sts.

Continue with the middle part.

MIDDLE

Continue with the Sock weight yarn in the color of your choice and 3.0 mm crochet hook.

Round 3: Ch 1. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 28 sts. = 28 sts.

Repeat round 3 seven more times.

Continue with the heel.

HEEL

Continue with the Sock weight yarn in the color of your choice and 3.0 mm crochet hook. Turn.

Row 4: Ch 1. Hdc2tog. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 10. Hdc2tog. = 12 sts.

Row 5: Ch 1. Hdc2tog. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 8. Hdc2tog. = 10 sts.

Row 6: Ch 1. Hdc2tog. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 6. Hdc2tog. = 8 sts.

Row 7: Ch 1. Hdc2tog. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 4. Hdc2tog. = 6 sts.

Row 8: Ch 1. Hdc2tog. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 2. Hdc2tog. = 4 sts.

Row 9: Ch 1. Work hdc2tog two times. = 2 sts.

Row 10: Ch 1. Repeat 2 hdc two times. = 4 sts.

Row 11: Ch 1. 2 hdc. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 2. 2 hdc. = 6 sts.

Row 12: Ch 1. 2 hdc. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 4. 2 hdc. = 8 sts.

Continue with the upper part.

Upper Part

Continue with the Sock weight yarn in the color of your choice and 3.0 mm crochet hook. 

This round might be a bit challenging, therefore I recommend watching the video tutorial.

Attach the heel to the main part with a ss. Use the same stitch as you used for one leg of the hdc2tog st in row 1 on the heel. Turn your work. Skip the ss. Start in the next. 

Round 16: Ch 1. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 13 sts. Create 1 hdc into the next st, but at the same time join the heel with the main part (watch the video). Work 1 hdc into each of the next 14 sts. = 28 sts.

After each round join the round with a ss and turn your work.

Round 17 and 18: Ch 1. Work 1 hdc into each of the next 28 sts. = 28 sts.

Round 19: Ch 1. Repeat (1 FPhdc, 1 BPhdc) 14 sts. = 28 sts.

Repeat the rounds 19 and 20 seven more times.

Cut the yarn and fasten off. Hide the yarn between the sts.

Take a small amount of yarn and close the openings on the heel. Make sure you make all the sewing on the inner side of the sock.

Also, if the spaces between the stitches in the toe area are too big, take a small amount of yarn and a needle and pull the stitches closer together with a few simple stitches.
