Ravelry Crochet Sock Pattern Bundle & Ongoing Chatter Thread
We also set up a bundle in Claudia's Ravelry group with a load of lovely crocheted sock patterns. And the sock making and chatter continues in Claudia's Ravelry thread Sock It To Me so please do join us there. And Hannah from the Cozy Cottage Crochet Podcast is running a year long #yearofthesock Year of the Sock Chatter Thread!
Free Small Crochet Sock Pattern & Tutorials
I designed a small sock for the "Crochet Sock Techniques” class I taught at Houston Fiber Fest in June 2017 (I used to live in Texas) to introduce my students to a number of sock techniques. This would be a great quick sock to make if you're new to crochet socks and is free on Ravelry. Here's the link: Leftover Crochet Sock. I’ve also recorded short tutorials on YouTube to accompany this pattern. I hope they are helpful.
