Crochet socks patterns are difficult to find; well, let me rephrase that; attractive patterns for crochet socks are difficult to find. I’ve scoured the Internet to find FREE patterns for crochet socks that I think are pretty and practical. I found seven patterns. I hope there is at least one here that you like!

A. Polka Dot Popcorn Socks - Decorative and festive!

April Fool’s Day is just around the corner. It’s not really a day one thinks to celebrate in any particular way, other than playing a few minor jokes on friends and family.

Need a few harmless practical jokes to play? Here’s a few I’ve culled from the WWW.
- Add a few drops of green or red food coloring to a carton of milk.
- Superglue a few coins to the sidewalk or any spot that has a lot of people walking around.
- Go into your spouse’s closet and steal one of each of their shoes. Watch them frantically try to find a match.
- Balance a small disposable cup of water on the top of a partially open door and then wait for the splash.
- Purchase some realistic-looking insects and place the creepy crawlers in ice cubes, socks, shoes, food, etc.
The point is to have fun without being mean or doing harm. Use your imagination!
Well, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to crochet for summer. Here are six summer crochet patterns I like. I’m a big fan of Linda Permann’s designs; three of the patterns below were designed by her. I hope there is a pattern here that you like.
I’ve listed links below to the crochet patterns.
28-9 Cotton Smile Vest
Chanson En Crochet
Orchid Lace Top
Pretty Petals Top by Linda Permann
Traveling Tank by Linda Permann
Gidget Tee by Linda Permann
I’m eager to crochet something in red, and I really like the Gidget Tee. I’ll have to think about what colors to choose for that pattern. What do you plan to crochet before summer arrives?
There’s just a few more days until February 14th, Valentine’s Day. If you haven’t crocheted a heart or two for loved ones, it’s not too late. I’ve discovered several crochet heart patterns that I think are pretty. If you’re a beginner, take this opportunity to learn how to crochet hearts.
The nice thing about crochet, compared to knitting, at least in my experience, is that crochet is a much quicker craft. You should be able to crochet a few hearts in no time.
Here are links to the heart patterns above (you may need a Ravelry account to view a few of the patterns):
- Springtime in My Heart
- Sunburst Granny Heart
- Heart x4
- Crochet Valentines
- Lacey Little Hearts
- Colorful Circle Heart
- Hearts and Flowers
- Hanging Hearts
I really like to crochet granny squares, and I’ve become particularly interested in the granny flower square motif. There are simple and complex patterns to choose from. In my search for interesting patterns, I found those above. You can learn more about each pattern at the links below.
- Granny Square with a Flower
- Crocodile Flower
- Eight-pointed Flower
- Square #64
- African Flower Mandala
- Sucrette’s Square Pattern
- Crown Jewels
- Yarn Clouds Square
What is your favorite crochet motif? How do you typically use grannies? Do you work with shapes other than squares? What is your favorite way to join them?
Granny squares can be used to make afghans, scarfs, bags, garments, etc. There are no limits.
I had so much fun making this crochet baby sweater. The pattern for the sweater was designed by Linda Permann. You can find her pattern on Craftsy (see the class called Crochet: Beyond Rectangles) and on Ravelry (Beyond Rectangles Baby Cardigan).
For the large sweater, I used a 3.75 mm (F) crochet hook, 2 skeins of Naturally Caron Spa (0014 Deep Purple), and 1 skein of Naturally Caron Spa (0012 Foliage). You can find this yarn at Michael’s. I crochet tightly, so if you decide to use this yarn, I recommend you crochet a swatch as Linda directs.
The Amigurumi is based on a free crochet pattern called Pink and Cute.
I’m a big fan of Linda Permann’s patterns. They are easy to crochet, and the final products are lovely to look at. I can’t wait to crochet another baby cardigan. I’m also interested in crocheting a cardigan for myself. There are two sweater patterns by Linda in Interweave Crochet – Winter 2013 edition.
Pantone selected Emerald (Pantone 17-5641) as the color of 2013. You’ll see the color in home, fashion, and graphic design this year. You’ll also find that knitters and crocheters have used the color to create some very lovely items. Search your stash or visit a yarn shop to find yarn in today’s hot color.
