Spring Anklet pattern (image intense)


Momcrochets

Recommended Posts

After posting my anklets about two months ago, I recieved so many compliments, and even requests for the pattern, that I dug out my index-card scribbles, rewrote them, and made another pair, taking photos so I could do this "tute-style"

So, here's my first attempt at a tutorial. :)

 

note:These socks were designed by me, for me...I wear a size 8w/8.5 shoe. But the major change for different sizes would most likely be in the foot length, unless you have extremely slim ankles, or very deep heel-cups...

 

Supplies:

:rose Sock weight yarn. I used Bernat Baby Jacquards in the linked show and tell, and Sensations CuddleMuffin for this tute. (ETA: 1 skein of either of these yarns is enough, with plenty left over, possibly even enough for a second pair...but I haven't made two pair with the same colorway yet--and you thought second sock syndrome was bad...I'm not ready for 3rd and 4th sock syndrome! :lol) You can use regular sock yarn if you prefer...I'm just allergic to wool.

 

:rose Size E (3.5mm) hook

 

 

 

Leaving a 4-6 inch tail, work 44 fsc. (or you could chain 45, and single crochet in the second and each remaining hook, but the fsc has better stretch, which helps get the opening over your heel). Being careful not to twist, join to the first sc with a sl st.

Heel:

1. Ch 1, sc in first 22 sts, leave remaining unworked (this is your RS)

2. ch 1, turn. Sc in eahc of 22 sc.

3. Repeat step 2 for a total of 13 rows. Last row completed should be a RS row. Do not fasten off.

Heel "cup":

1. Ch 1, turn. Sc in first 15 sts only, leave rem. sts unworked.

2. Ch 1, turn. Sc in 1st 7 sts, sc-dec next 2 sts.

post-7396-135897647946_thumb.jpg (I used the invisible decrease here. I realize that makes for a lousy tute picture. You can use the regular decrease just fine on these socks, in fact, you almost have to for the rest of the heel cup)

 

3. Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st seven sts, sc dec next sc and first sc from unworked row.

4. Repeat step 3 until all unworked sc's from heel flap have been used. You should end up with a cup with 3 sides and a bottom.

Heel "gusset":

1. ch 1, turn. Sc across bottom 8 scs, work 13 scs along ends of rows,Mark Sc just made [sc FL next st. Sc BL next st] across sc's from foundation sc round. (22 scs across top) work 13 sc's in ends of rows (mark first of these 13 sc), Join with sl st.

2. Ch 1, turn. Sc next 11 sts. Sc-dec next 2 sts. (place marker on dec). [sc BL next st, Sc FL next st] across top of foot (22 sts). Sc-dec next 2 sts (place marker on dec), sec remaining 19 sts. Join.

 

3. Ch 1, turn. Sc next 18 sts. Sc-dec next 2 sts. (move up marker). [sc FL next st, Sc BL next st] across top of foot (22 sts). Sc-dec next 2 sts (move maker), sec remaining 10 sts. Join

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3, (sc counts on either side of join will decrease by one, every round) until you have 20 sc remaining across bottom of foot. (Should be 5 on one side of join and 15 on the other, including dec's)

post-7396-135897647966_thumb.jpg

to clarify: in photo, ankle is at top, and toe end is facing left.

 

Foot:

1. Chain 1, turn. Sc across sole, (keep moving markers as you go, it makes it much easier to see when to begin the pattern stitch) Work established pattern across top of foot, sc across remaining sole. Join. (42 sts)

 

2. Repeat step one until foot reaches just past your pinky toe (or 1.5" before end of toes). For me this was~ 6 1/4" when measuring from ankle opening to toe opening along the top of the foot. Take note of your measurement for when you work the second sock, it's easier than eyeballing, to get the same size on both socks)

Toe:

Ch 1, turn. Sc-dec on ea h side of markers, maintaining pattern across top of foot between decreases. Continue working in rounds in this manner, until only 20 stitches remain. (You will likely find you have to adjust your decreases for the joining. One method is to slip stitch over on the right side rounds, to make room for the decrease before the marker. Another is to move that decrease to the other side of the join. either method will work, just pick one and go with it for the last couple rounds of your sock)

FO, leaving long tail for sewing. Turn sock inside out, and sew toe closed (I just weave the tail through the stitches along the toe opening, and then tie off, and weave in the tail a couple directions along the toe, to secure)

 

Now use the beginning tail to tidy up the join at the beginning of your sock if you used the fsc, by pulling it through the "chain" of the last fsc, and back through the first "chain" of the first sc. weave in to secure.

 

You're done!

Thanks everyone. They are fun to make. I hope you enjoy them.

Tam, I bet you could. seeing as there's almost no ankle or cuff, they work up surprisingly fast. I figure about 2 hours per sock, depending on how the yarn is flowing. :)

Beautiful socks! Thank you for sharing the pattern :hug. I hope to make a pair for my daughter. I think she would love them as much as I will....but one question about the pattern: Does fsc mean foundation single crochet? I just wanted to clarify so I can try your pattern out when I get a chance.

Daisy, yes. fsc does mean foundation single crochet. Thank you for clarifying.

 

:yay Thank you for clarifying this for me :hug. I was almost going to say the front post sc, but I knew that couldn't be it, because your sock is so smooth and sleek looking. I can't wait to try the pattern ...Thank you so much! :hug

That looks great, Tam! Sorry to hear your grandson frogged some sock on you! :eek

What a pretty color-way. You're right, these would be perfect for a pamper-me gift set. I'm sure your mom will love them. :)
