Why You Need Bulky Crochet Socks

  1. Say goodbye to cold feet. These socks protect your little toes more than the average sock from the cold. They are practically bulky and squishy slippers. There is nothing like kicking off your shoes and putting these crochet socks on as house slippers. After a long day, your feet need some cozy treatment.
  2. These crochet socks are super cozy. The bulky yarn adds so much fabric that keeps your feet from feeling cold floors, especially if you have tile in your home.
  3. These socks are the perfect crochet gifts. Especially if you must make something last minute for a family member or friend. And who wouldn’t want custom cozy socks for their birthday or Christmas?
  4. Plus, you will wear these quickly with this quick and easy free crochet sock pattern. I’ll walk you through each step with a video tutorial as well.

    Yarn Options for the Perfect Crochet Sock

    For this pattern, I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick because it’s available at most local craft stores, as well as on WeCrochet. It’s made from 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool, which means they can hold up, but also have some warmth with that little bit of wool. If you would like to know of more options, check out these yarns that work well too, just be sure to check gauge:

    Skill Level:

    Easy Beginner


    This sock is meant to be crocheted for a custom fit to your foot. This sock can be tried on and adjusted as you go. The example stitch counts are for a women’s size sock. For more information on sock sizing, and a free downloadable sock chart, visit How To Size Crochet Socks

    Easy Bulky Crochet Sock


    Since this is worked continuously, placing a stitch marker on the first stitch of each row is helpful.

    These crochet socks use a fun stitch combination and are worked from toe-up. The heel is an ‘afterthought heel’ where we create an opening for the heel area and come back to work the heel last.

    If trying on the sock is impossible, or you are making these socks for a friend, measure the foot to determine how many stitches/rows will be needed in each section for the best fit. Each measurement below should be taken while standing, except for C.

    A: Circumference for Leg:
    Measure the topmost part of your leg, the thickest part, and where you would like the height of the sock.

    B: Height of Leg:
    From where you took measurement A to the top of the heel.

    C: Circumference of Foot:
    Measure where your foot is thickest. The actually finished sock will be about 1/4 to 1/2 inches less than this measurement.

    D: Instep:
    Measure from the bottom of your toes to about 1 inch before the heel.

    Special Stitches:

    Special Stitches:
    The established stitch pattern (est. st pat) is worked across an even number of stitches as follows: sc 1 in the blo, ssc next; repeat for the number of stitches needed.

    Split Single Crochet (Ssc):
    This stitch is worked as single crochet but where the hook is inserted is the only difference. The hook will be inserted between the ‘V’ of the stitch.

    When trying out the Split Stitch here are a few helpful tips:
    Keep your hands loose and comfortable. If your hands are starting to hurt, then the tension of the stitch is too tight. When entering the stitch, pull up the loop a bit more than you normally would, it will give the ‘V’ more space for the next round and make working the ssc comfortable.

    Repeats Repeat Round 10 until the sock reaches about 1 1/2” from the heel, it’s best to try it on and add or remove rows if needed.

    Please Note: This is a great time to customize the sock to your foot size. Remember these will stretch a little as worn so it should be a little snug, but if it starts to feel too tight add increases by placing 3ssc into one stitch on each side. Don’t be afraid to change the stitch count for your foot.  16 (18) sts
