Crochet Tutorial: Fair Isle Knee High Socks

Crochet Tutorial: Fair Isle Knee High Socks

Using the Fair Isle crochet stitch, I created these knee high socks!! This design makes the contrasting color look like mini hearts!! These socks are so incredibly warm and fashionable! I have made socks working from the cuff down to the toes, but this sock is created starting from the toes and working its way up the leg! These fun socks can be made in all sorts of color combinations! Go wild with your imagination! Enjoy this fun pattern!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make these socks:

MorpheMe October Collection 2017

Materials you will need:

Red Heart Yarns Amore in Rooibos and Chamomile (2 balls of each  color)
Stitch Marker
Size G6-4.25mm Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle
Scissors

NOTES:
-These socks are worked from the bottom up.
-You can use any worsted weight or double knitting type of yarn. Go to YARNSUB.com and type in Amore and all the substitutions that are equal to this type of yarn will show up.
-These socks measure–Sole: 10 inches (24 cm), Length from Toe to Cuff: 21.5 inches (54 cm), Length of leg part only–cuff to heel: 13.5 inches (35 cm)
-These socks will fit a size 6-9 American Woman’s Shoe Size foot. The video tutorial explains how to make these larger or smaller with very few simple steps. Please watch the entire video tutorial to learn how to do this for other sizes.
-To make these smaller or larger, just make sure your increases are all in a multiple of 4 (I explain this in the video tutorial)
-The CH 2 or CH 1 at the beginning of a round does NOT count as a stitch. Sl st to the beginning stitch of that round to go onto the next round.
-The majority of these socks are worked in continuous rounds. Mark your rounds with a stitch marker for each round so you do not lose your spot.
-Work over the top of your previous color strand when making the fair isle stitching
-If you see any mistakes in the pattern, please leave a comment to this post and I will fix any errors.
-Work INTO the stitch, and NOT at the top of the stitch (video tutorial shows this method)
-SEW IN YOUR LOOSE ENDS AS YOU GO! YOU WILL THANK YOURSELF LATER.

Saving Bundle - Hand Bended Silk Yarn

Socks:

The video tutorial demonstrates the Left Sock Only. Right Sock instructions are written with the left sock pattern below.

Work in continuous rounds throughout this pattern.

Work over the top of your yarn strands when you change color.

Work INTO the stitch, NOT at the top of the stitch (see video tutorial for visual instructions)

Both Socks:
Starting with Red
Ch 11

Rnd 1: SC in 2nd ch from hook and across, put 3 SC in last Ch, continue working on opposite side of foundation chain, SC across, put 2 SC in last st. (21 sts)

Rnd 2: SC in 10 sts, 2 SC in next st, SC in 10 sts, 2 SC in last st. (23)

Place stitch markers on each side of the sock, this is where you will put increase stitches.
Rnd 3: SC in each stitch until you get to a marked stitch, put 2 SC in the marked St.

Rnds 4-11: Repeat Round 3 until you have 41 stitches (you will increase each round by 2 stitches)
After Round 11, if you have more or less than 41 stitches, just be sure you have a multiple of 4+1 (example: 40 is a multiple of 4, plus 1 = 41 sts)
If you end up having to do more rounds, it’s ok, just go onto the instructions for round 12 next.

Rnd 12: SC in each st around (change color after last stitch to go onto Round 13) (41 sts)

Rnd 13: Change color to Chamomile, SC in each st around. (41 sts)

From now on, I will refer to Rooibos as “Red” and Chamomile as “White” in this written pattern

Rnd 14: With White, SC2TOG, SC in next 2 sts, *Change color, SC with Red, Change color, SC in 3 sts with White, repeat from * around. (40 sts)
At this point, you should have a multiple of 4 stitches around (if you do not have 40 stitches, be sure to have a multiple of 4)

Rnd 15: With White, SC in each st around. (40 sts)

Rnd 16: With White, SC in 1 st, *change color to Red, SC in 1 st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around ending with SC in last 2 sts with White.

Rnd 17: With White, SC in each st around. (40 sts)

Rnd 18: With White, SC in next 3 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in 1 st, Change color to white, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around ending with one st in Red on the last st.

Rnds 19-43: Repeat Rounds 15-18 as many times as you need to get the length of the top of the foot you need. END ON A REPEAT OF ROW 15 before moving onto the next section. If you do more or less rows, that is ok, FASTEN OFF when you are done with this part and jump to the instructions for the leg part next. You will create the heel hole after you have the length you need in this section.

If any of this is confusing in writing, please view the video tutorial for clear instructions.

 

 

Heel Hole and Leg part:

Mark 20 sts on the TOP side of the sock (see video tutorial to see where top side is)
These instructions start at 56 minutes and 40 seconds into the video tutorial.

Right Foot:
Heel Hole and Leg:

Rnd 1: Start in a stitch that is up 1 and over to the left 1 of a red stitch from the previous round (see video tutorial for specific location) In that stitch, attach your yarn and do the fair isle stitching (also known as: the established pattern) across 20 sts, end with a white stitch, Chain 18 loosely with White, skip 20 sts, continue to work in continuous rounds and go onto round 2 next.

Rnd 2: With White, SC in each st and each ch around. (38 sts)

Rnd 3: With White, SC in next 3 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in 1 st, Change color to white, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around ending with one st in Red on the last st. (if this does not line up with your fair isle stitches, just do the fair isle design as established, just keep note of what you started this round with and ended with because you will be repeating this round in the future)

Rnd 4: With White, SC in each st around.

Rnd 5: Fair Isle Stitches: With White, SC in 1 st, *change color to Red, SC in 1 st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around ending with SC in last 2 sts with White.

Rnd 6: With White, SC in each st around AND put an EXTRA stitch in the last st. (increase made) (39 sts)

Rnds 7-10: repeat Rounds 3-6 one time.

Rnd 11: With White, SC in next 3 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in 1 st, Change color to white, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around.

Rnd 12: With White, SC in each st around AND put an EXTRA stitch in the last st. (increase made) (39 sts)

Rnd 13: With White, SC in 1 st, *change color to Red, SC in 1 st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around.

Rnd 14: With White, SC in each st around AND put an EXTRA stitch in the last st. (increase made) (39 sts)

Since the increase is made, the ends of your rounds will turn out differently each time. Start your rounds EXACTLY THE SAME as instructed. See video tutorial for explanation.

Rnds 15-35: Repeat Rounds 11-14 for however long you need to so this part fits around your calf of your leg. I had 52 sts at the end of Round 35. You will need to end on a repeat of Round 11 before going onto the next round.
If you need to repeat this part more or less, just be sure your stitch count is a multiple of 4.

Rnd 36: With White, SC in each st and each ch around.  (do not increase any more)

Rnd 37: Repeat Round 11

Rnd 38: With White, SC in each st and each ch around.

Rnd 39: Repeat Round 13

 

Left Foot
Heel Hole and Leg:

Rnd 1: Start in a stitch that is up 1 and over to the left 1 of a red stitch from the previous round (see video tutorial for specific location) In that stitch, attach your yarn and SC in that stitch, Chain 18 loosely, Sk 20 sts, SC in NEXT st working the fair isle stitches on the rest of the sts on this round.

Rnd 2: With White, SC in each st and each ch around. (38 sts)

Rnd 3: With White, SC in first 2 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in next st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around.
(When doing Round 3, you MAY have to add another stitch in somewhere to make the fair isle stitches line up correctly, if you do not, that’s ok, but if you do, that is also ok–nobody will notice, just use your judgement on if your fair isle stitches are lining up)

Rnd 4: With White, SC in each st and each ch around.

Rnd 5: With White, SC in first 4 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in next st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around. (38 sts)

Rnd 6: With White, SC in each st around AND put an EXTRA stitch in the last st. (increase made) (39 sts)

Rnds 7-10: repeat Rounds 3-6 one time.

Rnd 11: With White, SC in first 2 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in next st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around.

Rnd 12: With White, SC in each st around AND put an EXTRA stitch in the last st. (increase made) (40 sts)

Rnd 13: With White, SC in first 4 sts, *Change color to Red, SC in next st, Change color to White, SC in next 3 sts, repeat from * around.

Rnd 14: With White, SC in each st around AND put an EXTRA stitch in the last st. (increase made) (41 sts)

Rnds 15-35: Repeat Rounds 11-14 for however long you need to so this part fits around your calf of your leg. I had 52 sts at the end of Round 35. You will need to end on a repeat of Round 11 before going onto the next round.
If you need to repeat this part more or less, just be sure your stitch count is a multiple of 4.

Rnd 36: With White, SC in each st and each ch around.  (do not increase any more)

Rnd 37: Repeat Round 11

Rnd 38: With White, SC in each st and each ch around.

Rnd 39: Repeat Round 13

BOTH SOCKS:

Rounds 40-86: Repeat Rounds 36-39 on the sock you are working on. End on a repeat of round 36 or 38 (plain SC with White Row)
You can continue this repeat until you want to make the cuff–For shorter legs, end earlier, for longer legs, continue the repeat.
Fasten off after you are done with the length and ready to make the cuff.

Next, go onto making the cuff.

Cuff:
Both Socks:
Attach Red to any stitch on back of sock.

Work in the top of the stitches on this part, not IN the stitch like you were for the fair isle design.

Crochet Tutorial: The Cozy Colossal Blanket

Crochet Tutorial: The Cozy Colossal Blanket

Days turned into weeks, that turned into months, and I finally finished. My crochet hand and arms had a mega workout, but it was so worth the effort. This beautiful chunky yarn blanket using Red Heart Irresistible Yarn is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever made for the home. Just in time for cold nights and winter winds, it truly is…irresistible.

This blanket is an investment piece. These chunky yarns are not skeins you are going to find in a bargain bin. They can be pricey. This is one of those projects where coupons and sales come in handy!! This is definitely a piece you want to have for your home or for a gift to someone VERY special. Side note–this blanket does shed, and I personally have not felted mine to reduce the shedding, but you can opt to do whatever you feel.

I made my project in stripes, but you can make it in a solid tone. It’s a striking blanket no matter what you decide to do. This afghan is extremely heavy–I would guess about 10-12 pounds, maybe more! This is a very trendy and popular piece that you find in high end home decor.

Free Crochet Pattern: Color Pop Baby Blanket

Free Crochet Pattern: Color Pop Baby Blanket

I wanted to create an unconventional piece for a baby. I have somebody close to me that is having a baby soon and I was inspired to think outside the box with this amazing Color Pop Baby Blanket. Steering away from the “traditional” pastel colors or pinks and blues for gender specifications, I wanted to create something that is gender neutral as the mother and father do not know the baby’s gender.

Using that inspiration and that element of surprise, I wanted to make something that just WOW’s the nursery and the arrival of this new baby. This amazing piece started to form from a small creative idea that I had.

13318721_10154317688077845_1029383747_n

This bright and colorful blanket combines a variety of stitches to give rich texture with a cheerful *pop* of color in the stripes! I framed the entire piece with a crocheted pom border as well. This border is very reminiscent of the 1970’s trend, but I have added new life to the retro look. It is fabulous!

Not only will this be a great addition to any nursery, but it would serve as a secondary purpose of being a great play throw to have to crawl around on the floor with. There are so many sensory textures.

In this baby blanket, I used popcorn stitches, granny stitches, double crochets, single crochets, cluster stitches, puff stitches, and treble crochets.  You can even make this blanket bigger to make an afghan or even a full bedspread! Get creative!

You can use any colors you like, so if you know the gender of the baby, you could make this in a variety of hues of one color or make this in one solid color. The possibilities are endless! I can’t wait to see what you create! This was such a fun project!

NOTES:
-You can make this blanket any size. Use the Afghan Size Guide in this Blog Post
-The measurements for my blanket came out to be approximately 47 inches X 45 Inches
-You can make this blanket any size by making your beginning chain an even number.
-You can use any colors you want. I used a Worsted Weight, Size 4 Medium Yarn but you can use any Double Knitting Yarn or any Aran Yarn as well.
-This blanket took me approximately 1 month to complete (But I did not work on it continuously)
-You do not have to change color so often, but sewing in those pesky ends is a nightmare. Be sure to sew them in as you go, but if you are not changing color as often as I do in the video tutorial, you can carry your yarn up the rows on the sides because when we make our border, we cover the sides anyway.
-Ch 3/Ch4 at the beginning of a row counts as a stitch unless otherwise specified (See video tutorial for explanation, especially when working treble crochet rows)
-If you do not have the same exact stitch count as me (if you are off by a few stitches, do not worry about it, it is OK, the border will hide any imperfections on the edges)

YO: Yarn Over
