Ya Ya Ya there just yoga sock right?!?!?! NOPE…
I’ve been attempting yoga socks off and on for over a year now. I’ve tried every pattern I could find out there plus tried a few of my own. None of them worked. By that I mean I have such large feet ( 9-10 depending on shoe brand) plus my feet are alittle chunky, Patterns I found would go over one part of my foot but not the other or be entirely too big. It was also hard to gauge if it was going to fit the person I was originally going to make them for. Being frustrated I just forgot the whole thing and moved on.
When I ordered some new yarn from Hemptique, I immediately thought to myself I want to try yoga socks with this. After my first attempt… I was frustrated again. I was ranting and raving to my self for a good 10 mins… yes, I talk to myself, I was told highly intelligent people do that hahaha. Anyways It just popped up in my head!!! BUTTONS!!!!! Why don’t I design the top portion of the sock to be open/closable with buttons!!!
Soooo here ya go. A easy, very customizable yoga/ meditation sock. Not only do you not have to worry about how much “room” to leave for the heal, you can actually make the foot part more snug and wider and the above part ankle fit perfectly.
THIS PATTERN IS FOR A SIZE 9-10 foot, Ankle measures 10 1/2 inches, just behind ball of foot is 9 1/2 inches and top of foot from ball to ankle is 4 inches.
You can adjust the stitch counts & rows depending on your measurements.
I will be making a smaller .. size 7-8 and will modify the pattern when I’ve completed them.
What you will need……
2 balls of your color choice of Hemptiques Hemp Yarn.. 130yds
5mm Hook, 4 small and thin buttons, scissors, tapestry needle & thread to sew buttons
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
SS = Slip Stitch
SKP Stch = Skip Stitch
DC2TOG = Decrease next 2 stitches
* * = Repeat steps between Asterisks.
You will be making 2 the exact same.. Left side will need the foot band part turned inside out to allow for the buttons to be on the inside of ankle. Place on Foot to gauge where to place and sew the buttons on.
1.) HDC In 2nd Chain from hook… Continue to HDC across.. Chain 7 (OR as many needed to fit button thru loop made) (44 + chain7)
2.) DC,SC in first stitch,Skp Stch… *DC, SC, Skp Stch* across ( 22 DC,SC’s aka Clusters)
3.) Chain 1.. DC 1st stitch, Skp Stch.. *DC,SC,Skp Stch* repeat 20 more times.. DC last stitch
4.) Repeat Row 3
5 & 6.) Repeat Row 3
7.) Repeat row 3 then chain 7 ( or as many as you did previously for button hole)
8.) DC the chain7 into first stitch… Then Repeat row 3
9.) Repeat row 3
You should have 44 stitches across.. Stitches not clustersFOOT COVER PART…
10.) Chain 1..DC first stitch..Skp Stch..*DC,SC,Skp Stch* repeat for a total of 11 DC,SC clusters
11.) Chain 1.. DC first, Skp Stch..*DC,SC,Skp Stch* for total 11 DC,SC… DC in Last Stitch.
12 & 13.) Repeat row 11
14.) No Chain 1.. Skp first Stch.. DC next, Skp Stch.. *DC,SC,Skp Stch* til last 2 stitches..Sk then DC in last (22 stitches)
15.) No Chain 1.. Skp first Stch.. DC next, Skp Stch.. *DC,SC,Skp Stch* til last 2 stitches..Sk then DC in last (20 stitches)
16.) Chain 1.. DC first, Skp Stch..*DC,SC,SKp Stch* Across til 2 stitches left..Skp Stitch, DC Last…SWITCH COLOR
Starting Arch Cover
17.) Chain 1.. HDC first and every stitch across ( 20 HDC’s) Now Chain 17.. making sure not to twist your chain… SS into First DC on row 16.
18.) Chain1..HDC into same stitch as SS… HDC around… Making sure to HDC in every chain made… Total 37HDC’s
This is what your sock should look like19 – 22.) HDC around… ( 37 HDC’s)
23.) Chain 1…HDC first stch… HDC next 5 Stitches…HDC2TOG.. HDC next 5 stitches, HDC2TOG…HDC next 5 stitches, HDC2TOG… HDC all remaining stitches then SS into first HDC.. Tie Off
CHANGE COLOR and Chain 1 in SS
24.) HDC in same SS space…HDC around and SS/ Tie Off
Now you can either leave as is or do a SC around the top of the Ankle with opposite color.
