Spread the love

Let’s get cozy this winter while indoors in your crocheted knee-high socks. Are you a fan of crocheted socks? Have you ever made any socks before? Not to worry, if you haven’t made a sock before, you should give this a try. The texture makes this super cozy and so comfortable. You can work this up in a few minutes. Wait, you do not need to worry about your finished socks being unequal in shape as this pattern guarantees you equal-shaped crocheted socks.

Have you ever wondered how to crochet thigh-high crochet socks?

Crochet tight high socks can either be started from either the toes up to the ankle and then continue up to the knee or thigh. You can also decide to start your thigh-high crochet socks from the knee or thigh and crocheted downwards towards the ankle and then to the toes.

The easy-breezy knee-high crochet socks use the first option with lots of steps to help you customize yours for a better fit.

How much yarn do you need to make a crochet thigh-high sock

The amount of yarn needed is dependent on the stitch pattern and size but for an adult crochet thigh high crochet sock, you would need about three hundred yards to about six hundred yards. While kid-size crochet knee-high socks use between 150 – 350 yards of yarn.

Inspiration for the easy breezy knee socks pattern

Picture yourself in this beautiful pair of knee-high socks with your favorite cup of drink in hand and making your Christmas projects. This sure sounds like the perfect combination.
