Granny’s birthday is in less than a month and I’m glad these socks are done, worked too long on them. The first trial came out way too small, it would have been a kids size.
You can find the pattern here. I think it’s an amazing idea to crochet socks lengthwise, the heel is already included and by crocheting in back loops only you get a stretchy result (which is mostly a problem with crochet socks).
In my case I used a larger hook (4.5 mm), two strands of sock yarn and increased the number of chains (28 instead of 18 for the foot and 20 instead of 18 for the leg [+ 3 ch]). Kind of experimental working with this pattern, but came out nice.
