Get to work!

It’s a fantastic project to use up any leftover yarn ends that you have laying around. That’s what I did – I mixed and matched the colors!

You may want to know how to change colors, too – check out my article on How to Change Colors in Crochet for more info. If you like, use Standing Stitch to start out each new row, instead of turning chain!

Let’s start!


LEVEL – beginner

TERMS – standard US

  • yarn: I used YarnArt Jeans in various colors (in fact you can use any yarn and corresponding hook you want, just stick to one kind of yarn for one ornament)
  • crochet hook 2,5 mm
  • toy filling (optional – you can leave your sock empty inside)
  • scissors

before you start

These socks are made with two parts – front and back, which are exactly the same. You can match the patterns on each sides, or go for totally different designs and colors.

Once you have two elements, you join them with single crochet stitches, but you can choose whether you want it to be open at the top (like a real sock), or closed off completely.

You can fill the sock with a little bit of stuffing to add plumpness, but it’s optional.

Let’s begin!

Little Crochet sock ornament

  • go for one color or play with colorful stripes!
  • 1 ch at the beginning of the round is a turning chain for single crochet and isn’t included in the overall stitch count for the row.
  • the sock is worked from the bottom up.

SOCK – make 2.

START: 8 ch


1 ch, 7 sc, 2 sc in one st (9)


1 ch, 8 sc, 2 sc in one st (10)


1 ch, 9 sc, 2 sc in one st (11)


1 ch, 11 sc (11)


1 ch, 9 sc, sc2tog (10)


1 ch, 4 sc, sc2tog (5)

ROW 7-12

1 ch, 5 sc (5)


  1. To join two parts of the sock we need to work single crochet stitches all around, inserting the hook through both parts at once.
  2. On the arches use increases by working two single crochets in the same stitch – it will help your stocking remain flat.
  3. To create a hanger (loop), make 20 chain stitches and attach it with a slip stitch back to the base.

In my opinion it’s best to choose the same color in which the sock is made, but after all it’s your sock and your ideas! 🙂

To make your sock open at the top…

start in the top left corner and end up in the right left corner (make a hanger there, too).

To close off your sock at the top… 

start in the top right corner and work the stitches all the way through. Don’t forget about the hanger in the end.

If you want to stuff your sock with filling…

stop before closing off the sock completely and add stuffing to the ornament, then proceed with single crochets to close it off.


you are done!

Now hang your crochet sock ornament on the tree or put some money inside 🙂
