Hestia reversible crochet ankle socks: Free Pattern

Spread the love

Crochet socks are one of the cutest things to make. The Hestia crochet socks are the perfect pattern to learn and make your first pair of socks if you are yet to make any! When they come as reversible, that’s even more intriguing.

The Hestia reversible crochet ankle socks free pattern is one that everyone should make. You should now that I love reversible, that makes this crochet socks even more important. This socks would be the coziest thing you’ve make!

Why you should make these crochet socks:

I’ve been a crochet sock pattern designer for years now, but it always surprises crocheters and knitters to find out that crochet socks are not only something we can make but also something we can comfortably wear in shoes!

These ankle socks are reversible! The first time I played with the thermal stitch, I realized it created a reversible fabric. I decided right then that I needed to use it in a crochet sock pattern. The nature of the thermal stitch means that these socks take a bit longer to complete than regular crochet socks, but they’ll also be super cozy and WARM.

Hestia is the Greek goddess of the hearth.

Skill level 

Intermediate

Measurements

Based on Foot circumference – measure the Foot at the widest point.

Circumference: 6 (7, 8, 9, 10)’’/15 (18, 20, 23, 25.5) cm – length is fully customizable.

Measure the length of the foot from Toe to back of Heel before starting: ________ in/cm

Gauge 

Toe gauge: 11 sc = 2’’ (5 cm)

After Round 5 of Toe, measure the stitch gauge. Adjust the hook accordingly.  

Foot gauge: 11 sc x 11 rounds = 2’’ (5 cm)

After Rnd 5 of Foot, measure stitch gauge. Adjust the hook accordingly.  

After Rnd 11 of Foot, measure round gauge. Adjust the hook accordingly.  

Check your tension for both colors. It is possible that you’ll be using a different hook for colors A and B! That’s fine. 

Crochet tip: 

Do take the time to check your gauge. Failing to do so is the #1 reason people make things that don’t fit or are uncomfortable to wear.

Special stitches

Thermal single crochet increase – first round (tsc-inc-fr): (Insert hook in back loop of current stitch and in the unworked loop of stitch 2 rounds below, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook) twice. 

Thermal single crochet increase – next round (tsc-inc-nr): Insert hook in back loop of current stitch and in the unworked loop of stitch 2 rounds below, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook, insert hook in back loop of next stitch and in the SAME unworked loop as the previous tsc, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook. 

Notes   

If you are between sizes, choose the larger size. This is especially important here as the thermal stitch is much thicker than regular single crochet.

Socks are worked from the Toe-up, with an afterthought heel. 

The entire sock is worked in turned rounds.

After Round 1, each round on Toe and Foot is done twice: once with each color. 

In the pattern, they will be written as follows: Round xA. Round xB.

Starting ch-1 does not count as 1st stitch.

To change color as you join rounds: drop current color in front of the work (noted as bytf), insert hook in 1st st, yarn over with new color, complete the sl st.

TOE INCREASES

With A, ch 11 to start.

Round 1. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, DO NOT TURN, pivot work to crochet under sts just made, sc in each ch across, join with sl st in 1st sc. 20 sts 

Place different color markers on the first and 11th sts. 

Move markers up as follows through increased rounds:

In A rounds, place a marker in the 1st stitch of the 1st increase and in the 2nd st of the 2nd increase. 

In B rounds, move markers into their respective stitch.

Round 2A. [Tsc-inc-fr in marked st, sc-blo in each st until 1 st remains before next marker, tsc-inc-fr in st before next marker] twice, bytf, join with sl st in 1st st, turn. 24 sts

Round 2B. Ch 1, work tsc-inc-nr in increases and tsc in all other sts around, bytf, join with sl st in 1st st, turn.

With increases done, you may safely proceed with a single marker at the beginning of rounds.

FOOT

Next round A. Ch 1, tsc in each st around, bytf, join with sl st in 1st st, turn. Repeat with B.

Repeat Next round A and B until the total length is 1.5 (1.5, 2, 2, 2)’’ less than the total foot length as measured before starting.

Alternatively, see ADULT Woman or Man foot lengths at https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/foot-size-charts and repeat rounds as established until the total length of the crocheted sock is 1.5 (1.5, 2, 2, 2)’’ less than required finished length for your shoe size.

End after working a B round.

HEEL PREPARATION

To have the seam on opposite sides of the socks, work Heel Preparation as follows:

First sock: 

Heel prep A. Fsc 18 (22, 24, 26, 28), skip 18 (22, 24, 26, 28) sts, tsc in remaining sts, bytf, join with sl st in 1st st, turn.

Weave all ends in.

HEEL (work twice, as instructed)

You can choose to work the heel in the same color as the side facing you, or with the opposite color as I did.

With A facing, join yarn with sl st in corner of heel opening. 

Round 1. Sc in the unworked loop of each sc and fsc around. 36 (44, 48, 52, 56) sts

Crochet tip: If you find the space between the sole and leg too wide to be skipped, add a stitch in that space. Work an additional decrease in Round 2 for any sts added here.

Place different color markers in the first and 19th (23rd, 25th, 27th, 29th) sts.

Rounds 2-10 (2-10, 2-12, 2-12, 2-12). [Sc2tog over first 2 sts (move marker up), sc in each st around until next marker] twice. -2 sts each round, for a total of 18 (26, 26, 30, 34) sts after the last round.

Round(s) — (–, –, 13, 13-14). [Sc2tog over first 2 sts, sc in each st around until 2 sts remain before next marker, sc2tog over 2 sts before next marker] twice. -4 sts each round, for a total of – (–, –, 26, 26) sts after the last round.

After the last round, fasten off leaving a long tail to sew the heel closed.

There are 18 (26, 26, 26, 26) sts remaining around the Heel opening – or 9 (13, 13, 13, 13) sts remaining on Sole and 9 (13, 13, 13, 13) sts remaining on the Leg. Working through both thicknesses, sew heel closed through these sts with sl sts or a yarn needle.

Turn the sock inside out and repeat on another side.

Finishing off your crochet socks

Weave ends in, sewing any remaining holes at the sides of the heel closed as you do so. Block lightly if desired.

There you have it: crochet socks that are reversible, warm, and super comfortable to wear!
