One of my favorite things to do while watching a good movie is crochet. Last year I started adding a crochet ruffle around the cuff of little girl socks. They came out so cute I decided to make some for myself. I like mine but they really are better on. . . cute little feet. A crocheted ruffle and a little applique and plain white socks turn fancy!
For Christmas I use red, green and white thread and all sorts of bling-from ribbons to bells!
I love making these and seeing plain everyday socks tuned into fancy feet!
There are a number of patterns to use to create these socks but here is a basic pattern I use.
I use bedspread cotton (#10 or 20) in any color. Attach thread with a slip stitch to the cuff.
Row 1-Ch3, skip 1 row of ribbing, sc in next row around cuff join with slst to first slst.
Row 2-Ch2, 2 dc in first ch3 loop, ch2 *3dc in next ch3 loop, ch2* repeat from * around join with slst to top of ch2.
Row 3-Ch1, sc in each stitch around join with slst to ch1 fasten off. Hide threads. Press the ruffle with a warm iron and Voila! you are finished.
Easy and oh, so cute! Hope you enjoy!
