  1. I wear a size 4-5 shoe; how would I modify the pattern to fit?

    1. i am too, i used a 4.5 mm hook. worked well the top slightly lose around ankle

  2. I don't understand step four where it says to SC in each SC SPACE. Where are the SC SPACES? The spaces in between each DC that formed the shell? Is there a video for this pattern because that would be extremely helpful! Thanks in advance!

    1. If you slightly stretch the piece after a row, you can see holes where you have chained three or chaned one. These are the sc spaces.

  3. Why do I always end up with 10 spaces? I have 32 stitches... ??

    1. Step 3 is confusing the heck out of me

    2. I had ten the first time, but I went back and started the row another stitch in, and made sure I only ended up with nine loops. Fudge it a bit if you have to. (My two cents, I'm not the designer.)

    3. It's driving me demented! I can't get nine now either despite having already made a pair correctly and having completed one of this pair! Suddenly, ten chain three spaces! WHY?! WWWWWHHYYYYY?!?!?

    4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. I've done project very similar with the dropped stitches, then adding stitches to make a pocket. These should a quick project to complete. I'll keep you posted.. Thanks.

  5. Could you do a video of this pattern please. I just can't seem to get this to work. Thanks

    1. The photo of the lavender socks at the top is a good guide to what you're going for. (The striped piece in the other photo must be some other pattern.) After you get the foundation row made, you do several rows in the shell, spike pattern; then you join those to make a tube, and work across the other side of your original foundation row (not the scalloped edge) to make the instep and foot part. Just remember to turn the rows or rounds when it says to, and keep to the 32 stitches around the foot. A stitch marker is handy for the sc rows.

      Does that help?

    2. It really doesn't. I'm not a new crocheter by any means and I can't get past row 3. It just makes no sense........

  6. thaank you for the free pattern :)
    it is indeed confusing at times, but doable.
    photo helped me a lot.
    I changed the way it is done, I start in round from the your end, then make shell pattern in round as well. no seam, more enjoyable to wear!

  7. Has there been a video put out? I'm lost at step 3!!

  8. I love this pattern, thank you! I too had some trouble understanding the top part, but I did my best and I'm really happy with how they turned out!

  9. these are not easy at all!!!i am 53 and been crocheting since i was 8!! i dont understand where i am supposed to do the spike stitches. row 3 definitely needs a tutorial. i even went on utube to learn the spike stitch but row 3 has me lost and frustrated. crochet is supposed to be fun!!with so many people asking for a tutorial, i thought you would have made one. love the socks, but i wont be using your patterns any more. too confusing...and then you dont try to fix the problem after sooo many people had the same issue.

    1. I thought the same! Super cute socks and I'm not a new crocheter. I have an Etsy shop! This pattern literally makes zero sense. Row three is like....... whaaaaaaaat???????

  10. Very easy to understand! Love it! I think row 2 for the ankle should say (10 chain 3 spaces), I left the initial 10 and kept following the pattern and it came out beautifully and was 9 chain 3 spaces after words.

  11. After 2 days i bought the pattern hopeing for pictures. Frog it... cant get it.

    1. Tried keeping it at ten shells fix. Stitched up fast.

  12. I can't understand why there would be a difference in the two socks???
