Chill Socks

Stitch abbreviations:

  • ch (chain stitch)
  • sl st (slip stitch)
  • hdc (half double crochet)
  • rsc (reversed single crochet, or crab stitch)
  • hdc2tog (half double crochet 2 together)
  • st (stitch/stitches)

This is what you’ll need:

  • 2 colors of light (DK) weight yarn
  • crochet hook 6mm
  • Yarn needle

Note:

  • Every round starts with ch2, which counts as the first hdc
  • Close every round with a sl st
  • When starting a new color, attach yarn with a sl st and than start with ch2 just like every other round

Color B:

1: Start with a magic ring, 6hdc in the ring (6)

2: 2hdc in each st (12)

3: Repeat 6 times * 2hdc in the next st, 1hdc in the next st * (18)

4: Repeat 6 times * 2hdc in the next st, 1hdc in the next 2 st * (24)

5: Repeat 6 times * 2hdc in the next st, 1hdc in the next 3 st * (30)

6 – 7: 1hdc in each st around (30)

Fasten off

Color A:

8 – 19: 1hdc in each st around (30)

You can add or leave out as many rounds as you want to create the best size for you. My yarn stretches quite a bit, so my socks fit most adult people.

20: Now we’re going to create a hole for the heel; 1hdc in the next 20 st, ch10 (if you’re ankles are a bit bigger than most people, just add a couple more ch) and skip 10 st (30)

21 – 45: 1hdc in each st around (30)

The socks in the featured image at the top of this page are a bit shorter. I did those in 19 rows instead of 25 like these grey once.

Fasten off

Color B:

46 – 47: 1hdc in each st around (30)

48: rsc in each st around.

Fasten off

We’re going to finish our work with the heel in color B

1: 1hdc 26 times, evenly spread across the heel opening (26)

2: * 1hdc in the next 11 st, hdc2tog * repeat twice (24)

3: * 1hdc in the next 10 st, hdc2tog * repeat twice (22)

4: 1hdc, * 1hdc in the next
