Crochet Chunky Socks Pattern


I've been wanting to make some socks for myself for a while now. Some of you will remember that I was making some knitted socks a few months ago. Yeh, I totally gave up on those. The yarn was too thin and the needles were too small and my sock was taking forever to knit up. Chunky socks ftw!

To make my chunky socks, I used two strands of DK yarn held together and a 5mm crochet hook. You can use thicker yarn instead of holding two together, I just used what I had on hand.

These socks are a perfect fit on my feet. I am a UK size 7, my measurements are 9" around the widest part of my foot, 8" around my ankle and 9.5" length along the bottom of my foot.

Gauge: At the end of round 8, your sock should measure 2" and at the end of round 26, your sock should measure 6".
