Easy Baby Crocheted Tube Socks

As promised, here is a crocheted baby tube sock. Actually 2 versions.

Easy Baby Crocheted Tube Socks

Soft worsted weight yarn-about an ounce
Size I crochet hook

Cuff: Chain 9.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and across. 8 sts. Chain 1, turn.
Row 2-12: Sc across 8 sts in back loops only. Ch 1, turn. There are now 6 ridges. Bring the last row to the first ch row and slip stitch the 2 sides together forming a tube. Turn right side out.

Variation #1 (solid blue in photo)
Row 1: Sc 16 sts evenly spaced around the cuff.
Row 2-9: These rows are crocheted in a spiral. There is no joining or turning. Mark the beginning of the row but keep going around. 16 hdc for each row.
Row 10: Hdc dec over 2 sts, 4 hdc , hdc dec over 2 sts (2x), 4 hdc , hdc dec over 2 sts. (12 sts) No turning
Row 11: 12 hdc
Row 12: Hdc dec, 2 hdc, hdc dec (2x), 2 hdc, hdc dec (8 sts)

Turn inside out and sl st the sts together for toe or cut yarn leaving a tail and sew the toe closed. Weave in ends. Make another bootie

Variation #2 This is a slightly more dense, cozy fabric. (variegated yarn in photo)

Make a cuff as above

Row 1: Sc 17 sts evenly spaced around cuff.
Row 2-9 (Sc, dc) around. This is the pattern. Again the rows are crocheted in a spiral with no turning or joining. After you finish row 2, you will always have a sc in a dc and dc in a sc from the row below so it's easy to keep track of the pattern. Just mark the beginning of the row and keep going around.
Row 10: Dec over 2 sts, 5 sts in pattern, dec (2x), 4 sts in pattern, dec (13 sts)
Row 11: 13 sts in pattern
Row 12: Dec, 3 sts in pattern, dec (2x), 2 sts in pattern, dec (9sts)

Finish toe off as above. Make another bootie.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Clarification on your crocheted tube socks please. After "Sc 16 sts evenly spaced around the cuff" (Variation #1), do you continue Rows 2-9 in sc or hdc? At the end of your instructions for Rows 2-9, it says "16 hdc for each row". I'm guessing hdc is the stitch of choice for rows 2-9, but would appreciate clarification. Thanks!

What does it mean when you say, 5 sts in pattern, then the next row 4 sts in pattern, I'm confused, I am a new crocheter, so can you please help me?

I think these are beautiful and I want to make a few pairs for my 1sr grandson. Thanks for posting the directions, very very nice job!

Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your question. If you look in row 2, you'll see the pattern is (sc, dc) so these are the sts you keep repeating around. If the directions say 5 pattern sts, that would be sc, dc, sd, dc, sc. And then you do the dec as in the pattern. Does that make sense to you? If not, just ask another question. I'm happy these booties are being made!
