No-Sew Chunky Crocheted Socks


My sister-in-law recently sent me a picture of some crochet socks that she found on Pinterest and asked me if I could make her some.

I instantly agreed, especially since I was getting really really tired and bored with my current project – a king/queen sized Star Wars C2C blanket that consists of way too much black, white and grey!

I spent the rest of that evening just looking at free and paid patterns and just couldn’t really find the right one and I did not feel like sewing a whole bunch of pieces together.

When it comes to socks I am usually a knitting person, but she definitely wanted the chunky look of crochet, so I just kept trying out different ways and styles until I came up with my own pattern.

After sharing it in one of my favorite Facebook crochet groups, I was so overwhelmed with the responses that I got that I ended up making another pair to double check the pattern to share it with everyone – For Free!

This pattern is made to fit my own shoe size (and my sister in law luckily has the same!!).

Size 6 No Sew Crochet Socks

As with every pattern that I have shared so far, I would like to ask a few things of you.

These are just some basic ethical  standards that I hope people will follow for other crafters who share their work, too:

Don’t tamper with it and then go around claiming it as your own. It’s a bitch move and I am probably in every crochet group that exists and I will find you!

Do not copy and sell this pattern. Just don’t. Don’t be that person. No one likes that kind of people.

Please let others know where you got it from and include a link to this blog when sharing the pattern. Sharing is great! And if you want more free patterns, this is how you get it. Share the blog link and I will find the motivation to type up that huge folder that I have laying right next to me.

What you need:    
  • Yarn
  • Crochet Hook (I used an I hook)
  • Yarn darner

>1dc, 8 dc decrease, 1 dc                                                                                      =10
>1 dc, 4 dc decrease, 1 dc                                                                                     =6
>join with a slip stitch into the beginning loop of the row                                   = n/a

>3 rounds                                                                                                              =30/each
>chain 2, 7dc, 1dc increase, 11dc, 1dc increase, 9dc                                           =32

>chain 2, 8dc, 1dc increase, 13dc, 1dc increase, 8dc                                           =34
>6 rounds                                                                                                              =34/each
>chain 2, 11dc, 1dc decrease, 13dc, 1dc decrease, 4dc                                        =32
>chain 2, 13dc, 1dc decrease, 8dc, 1dc decrease, 6dc                                          =30
>1 round                                                                                                                =30


It is really simple. The decreasing at the heel will form a natural cup like shape for the heel. Then you can just work your way up the leg.


Now, like I mentioned above, this pattern was created to fit my feet, which are a Size 6. If that would be too tight or too loose for your own, you should be able to simply adjust it by starting with more dc or increasing or decreasing more.

Happy Crocheting!

  10. Those look so snuggly! Just wondering: are these too chunky to wear with shoes and so are considered for use in the home? Or do you wear them out, too? Thanks for sharing-- Pinned! :) Lisa
