Fancy Toddler Socks off the Hook...

Fancy Toddler Socks with Crocheted Edges

I have been making these socks for 18 years now.  I started back when my girl was just a baby.  She had a pair to match every dress and even now, Mama makes a more adult version with a delicate small edge for her to wear with jeans and shorts.  These whip up really fast and only consist of four rows...

1)   Poke through the ribbing with your crochet hook and then chain 4 stitches, poke through the next rib and do the same all the way around until completed.

2)   Double crochet three to six times in each loop depending on the size of the sock and how full you want to make the fluff.

3)   On row three, do a simple shell stitch around using 3 to 5 double crochet stitches to make shell.

There is no right or wrong way.  Sometimes I don't do a shell stitch on row three but double the amount of sections stitched into the loops of row 2 making a very full fluff.

Sometimes I do an additional decorative stitch around the base of the sock in a different color to add dimension.  The possibilities are limitless.

I like a nice presentation by using clear bags and tie them off.

A nice spring color works well for any age.
This sock has an additional decorative edge.

This nice black and pink sock is done with alternating
colors to add color.  It was to match a dress.

A simple maroon was perfect for Christmas.

This sweet green sock with a crochet flower on the cuff
was spruced up by a decorative edge around the
base of the sock to match the center of the flower.

These make great gifts.  I often tie them to the top of a baby gift with a ribbon instead of a bow.


  1. Oh my those are so cute :) I love them.

  2. Dear Coco,

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. If you crochet, they are super simple and can be whipped up in a few hours. If you don't and want to learn, there are only two stitches you use through the whole thing and learning the shell which is just a placement issue of one of the stitches on the last row. Very simple and makes a great gift!!!

    Thank you again for your kind comments and I hope you have a fabulous week!!!!!
