Perfect Crocheted Socks for this Gift-Giving Season

I know what you’re thinking: “Socks as a gift?” There’s an old trope about an excited kid running down the stairs on Christmas morning, tearing into her first gift and being devastated by the wool socks—from Aunt Eunice—staring her in the face. Trust me when I say that the crocheted socks featured in Rohn Strong’s book Step into Crochet are not from your Aunt Eunice.

In Rohn’s book, you’ll find hefty, thorough information on how to make the perfect-fitting crocheted sock. You’ll also discover more than a dozen delightful designs for crocheted socks. So, start thinking of who’s on your holiday gift list and find the perfect pair of crocheted socks for them in Step into Crochet.

The trend-watcher

You don’t need to ask that trendy person on your gift list whether bees and honeycombs are super-popular right now. They are. A fresh, subtle approach to this trend is the Azalea Socks, decorated with post stitches to create a fun honeycomb pattern.

The life of the party

The Pullen Socks proffer the perfect pop of color and patterning for the most outgoing members on your list. Work this adventurous pattern up in their favorite colors for a pair of crocheted socks that bring the party wherever they go.

The bibliophile

Leather chairs, the smell of oak, stacks of old tomes, and crocheted cables—they all go hand in hand. The tall and cozy Hillsborough Socks, which feature an adorned, spectacular antler cable pattern, will make the perfect accessory wear while cuddling up with a good book.

The outdoorsy one

If you’re crocheting for a hiker, biker, hunter, or camper on your holiday gift list, the Gorman Street Cuff-Down Socks should be on your hook now. These crocheted socks are worked up in a tight gauge for long-lasting durability and protection against the elements.

The one who loses everything

How many times has this person asked you where her keys are? Help that person avoid, at least, losing one of her crocheted socks by making her multiple pairs of the Gorman Street Toe-Up Socks. Worked similarly to the Gorman Street Cuff-Down Socks but in reverse, these crocheted socks are shorter, which makes for quick and easy crocheting. You’ll have no trouble whipping out multiple pairs for that forgetful someone before the holidays.
