I redesigned this pattern using a larger hook (5.50 mm) as I wanted the socks to be softer and easier to put on little feet. The old version made with a smaller hook (4.00 mm) is below the new pattern.

MATERIALS

1 - 50g ball of worsted weight yarn. It wouldn't even use that much yarn.

Hook - 5.50mm (I/9 hook)

Size: Foot length approx. 3.5 inches - however, not all worsted weight yarns are the same. I used different brands for the 2 pairs in the photo above, the camouflage pair is 3.5 inches in foot length, and the purple variegated pair is 3.75 inches in length. Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 4 rows of sc = 1 inch.

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
st - stitch
tog - together
RND - Round

SOCK TOP

Ch 10

ROW 1 - 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch to end. (9 sc)

ALL STITCHES in the remaining rows are through BACK LOOPS ONLY.

ROW 2 - 1 sc in each 9 sc, ch 1, turn. (Note: do not count the ch 1 in your stitch count on all rows throughout the pattern.)

ROWS 3 to 18 - Same as Row 2.

You now have a tube shape of ribbing. To start the foot of the sock, with right side facing you, ch 2, 1 sc at base of ch 2, 1 sc along each end of ribbing rows, ss to join to first sc at beg, ch 1, turn. (19 sc)

HEEL - ALL Stitches are through BOTH LOOPS.

ROW 1 - 1 sc in first sc at the base of ch 1, (remember, ch 1 doesn't count in the stitch count) 1 sc in next 9 sc, ch 1, turn. (10 sc)
