NEW! Here is a template for making adjustments for different sizes.

MATERIALS

2 - 50g balls of 4 ply knitting worsted.
(This is an estimate, I usually buy larger sizes,
so I am really not sure how much I used)

Hook - 4.50. See Charts for conversions.

My notes, such as - where to make adusjments for other sizes, are in blue.

Abbreviations used:
st - stitch
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
beg - beginning
tog - together
This sock will fit a foot length of 9 to 91/2 inches.
4 sc = 1 inch, 4 rows of sc = 1 inch - This will help you to make adjustments for different sizes.

NOTE:For a lighter sock, using sportweight yarn that will fit a women's shoe size 8, see the Men's Socks pattern. Thanks to Norma W. for discovering that.


SOCK TOP - This sock top is 7 inches in length.
Ch 30 (ch more for a longer sock top, less for a shorter sock top)
ROW 1 - 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch to end. (29 sc)
