Baby Socks - Free Crochet Pattern

This free pattern originally published in the Woolco Knitting & Crocheting Manual, in 1916.

  • 1 skein of pink
  • 1 of white Woolco Shetland Floss
  • No. 3 ½ Woolco hook.


Using white, make a chain of 25 stitches; turn; work back in single crochet; chain at the end of row, and take only the half of stitch. Change to pink, and work in alternate ribs of pink and white until there are 7 ribs (4 white and 3 pink).

With pink, work 12 stitches; turn, and continue back and forth for 11 ribs; join to the other side of the front with slip stitches.

Using white for the foot, make a single crochet in every stitch around the front and sides, and make 2 rows plain.

In the 3d, and in every succeeding row, drop a stitch at each corner to form the toe. Make 8 rows of white for the foot and join with slip stitches.

Finish at the top with a neat little scallop and a cord and balls.


To the best of my knowledge, the preceding vintage crochet patterns has passed into public domain. What this means is that the copyright on them has expired. If I am incorrect, please contact me so that I can remove this pattern. Thank you.
