GAUGE:

20 sts = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

beg-Cl (beg cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
Cl (cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; (yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
Esc (extended single crochet) Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook.
Fdc (Foundation double crochet)
1. Ch 3 (counts as first st), yarn over, insert hook in 3rd ch from hook and draw up a loop; yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"); (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice (the "double crochet").
2. *Yarn over, insert hook into the "chain" of the double crochet just made and draw up a loop; yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"), (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice (the "double crochet"); repeat from * the total number of times indicated.
FPtr (front post treble crochet) Yo twice, insert hook from front to back then to front again, going around the post of st, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Skip st behind the FPtr.
sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES:

Foundation double crochet (FPdc) creates a foundation ch and a double crochet all in one. It creates a more flexible first round, allowing the cuff to fit more comfortably. If you prefer to use a traditional foundation ch, beg as follows:
With smaller hook, ch 38 (42, 48).
Rnd 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as first dc) and in each ch across; join with sl st in top of beg ch—36 (40, 46) dc at the end of this rnd.

SOCK (make 2)
Cuff
Rnd 1:
With smaller hook, ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout) and work 35 (39, 45) more Fdc; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 36 (40, 46) dc at the end of this rnd.
Note: Use the beginning tail to sew the edges of the first rnd together.
Rnd 2: Ch 3, FPtr around next dc, *dc in next dc, FPtr around next dc; rep from * around; join with sl st in top of beg ch—18 (20, 23) dc and 18 (20, 23) FPtr at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Ch 3, FPtr around next FPtr, *dc in next dc, FPtr around next FPtr; rep from * around; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Rnd 4: Change to larger hook, ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc in each st around; join with sl st in first sc.
Leg
Rnd 5:
Ch 3, beg-Cl in same st as join, ch 1, sk next sc, *Cl in next sc, ch 1, sk next sc; rep from * around; join with sl st in beg-Cl – 18 (20, 23) clusters and 18 (20, 23) ch-1 sps at the end of this rnd.
Rnds 6-8: (Sl st, ch 3, beg-Cl) in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, *Cl in next ch-1 sp, ch 1; rep from * around; join with sl st in beg-Cl.
Note: Work now proceeds in continuous rnds. Do not join rnds from this point forward. Place a marker to indicate beg of rnd and move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 9: Ch 1, Esc in same st as join and in each ch-1 sp and cluster around; DO NOT join.
Rnd 10: Esc in each st around. Rep last rnd until piece measures 5 in. (12.5 cm) from beg.

Heel Flap
Note:
Work now proceeds back and forth in rows over about one-half of the sts to form the heel. Do not remove the beg of rnd marker; it will be used again later.
Row 1 (RS): Sc in next 18 (20, 24) sts; leave rem sts unworked for front of leg – 18 (20, 24) sts at end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. Rep last row until heel flap measures 2 3/4 in. (7 cm); end with a WS row.

Turn Heel
Row 1 (RS):
Ch 1, turn, sc in next sc, (sc2tog) twice, sc in each sc to last 5 sc, (sc2tog) twice, sc in last sc – 14 (16, 20) sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rows 3 and 4: Rep Rows 1 and 2 – 10 (12, 16) sts at the end of Row 3.

Gusset
Note:
A rnd is now worked across the top of the heel, down the side of the heel flap, across the front of leg sts, and up the opposite side of the heel flap. Markers are placed to indicate locations to decrease for gussets. Tip: Use different colored markers for the gusset to distinguish them from the beg of rnd marker.
Rnd 1: Sc in next sc, sc2tog, sc in next 4 (6, 10) sc, sc2tog, sc in last sc; work 13 sc in ends of rows across side of heel flap, place marker in last sc made (for gusset), Esc in 18 (20, 22) front leg sts (previously unworked); work 13 sc in ends of rows across opposite side of heel flap, place marker in first sc of last 13 sc made (for gusset); do not join – 52 (56, 62) sts at the end of this rnd.
Note: Work now proceeds in continuous rnds. Do not join rnds from this point forward. Move beg of rnd marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: Esc in each st to 2 sts before first gusset marker, sc2tog, Esc in each st to next gusset marker, Esc in marked st, sc2tog, Esc in each st to end of rnd – 50 (54, 60) sts. Rep last rnd until 36 (40, 46) sts rem.

Foot
Rnd 1:
Esc in each st around. Rep last rnd until foot measures 2 (2, 2 1/4) in. (5 (5, 5.5) cm) less than distance to longest toe.
Flatten foot, making sure that the heel is centered to the back and one gusset marker is on each side edge.

Toe
Remove beg of rnd marker. Esc in each st to next gusset marker. This is now the new beg of rnd marker.
Rnd 1: Sc in each st around – 36 (40, 46) sc.
Rnd 2: Sc in marked sc, sc2tog, sc in each sc to 2 sc before next marker, sc2tog, sc in marked sc, sc2tog, sc in each sc to 2 sc before beg of rnd marker, sc2tog – 32 (36, 42) sc at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Sc in each sc around. Rep last 2 rnds until 16 (20, 22) sc rem. Join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Remove gusset markers.

FINISHING
Turn sock inside out, whipstitch toe closed. Weave in ends.

Cozy Crochet Socks Reviewed by Mary Ann LaBertew on 2012-04-15 *****
I have made this pattern so many times that I almost have it commited to memory! I have made it in every sock yarn that is available at our local fabric store. The pattern is easily adjustable for larger or smaller feet. I am also able to make a pair of socks in a fraction of the time it takes me to knit a pair.
I recommend this pattern to anyone who wants to make socks but is not so great at knitting on dbl pt needles.
