Yoga Sock Pattern!

I recently did a blog post to show off the Yoga Socks I've been making and promised to share the pattern with others, so here it is....

This pattern is really flexible and can be adjusted to fit many different size feet.
I have very small feet (a size 5) so you may want to chain more in the beginning but remember that the fabric will stretch when you wear it, so don't go crazy! I added only 3 chains for bigger ones which fit my moms foot (a size 8).

There is one thing I've learned after making several pairs of these socks and that is you don't want the socks to be too long. They should only just reach the balls of your feet so you can still grip the yoga mat while your working out.

This pattern is worked from the ankle down, using short rows to create the space for the heel.

Okay, here it is....and please let me know if you find any errors.

You will need a small amount of worsted weight yarn and a 5 mm hook.

Chain 32. (The chain should wrap comfortably around both your ankle and the base of your foot, if it doesn't, add more chains).

Slip stitch to join, being careful not to twist the chain.

Working the ankle:

Chain 2, half double crochet (hdc) in each space. Join with a slip stitch at the end of each row.

Repeat 5 times. (If you would like your socks to be longer, you can just add more rows)

Forming the heel opening:

Hdc in next 20 stitches. Chain 2. Turn leaving the rest of the stitches from the previous row unworked. (If you've added stitches to make your socks longer, be sure to leave at least 12 to 15 unworked stitches for the heel opening).

Hdc in 20 hdc of previous row. Chain 2. Turn.

Hdc in 20 hdc of prevous row. Chain 12 (or the number of stitches you avoided when forming the heel), join with a slip stitch to the first hdc of row. Chain 2.

Working the foot:

Hdc in each stitch around. Chain 2. Join with an slip stitch at the end of each row.

Repeat 8 more times or until your socks reach but do not cover the ball of your foot.

And you're done! Make another to match.

Then make some for everyone in your yoga class!

Play around with color...have fun with it!

  1. Thanks so much! I am going to try to whip these out this afternoon. Yoga class is tomorrow....

  2. no problem....they shouldn't take long...i wrote it up just for you!

  3. good job melissa!

  4. thanks sue!
    do you think your going to make a pair?

  5. Iloveit! I love slip on shoes and I forgot to wear socks on this rainy, sleety day. I can lengthen the calf (I'm wearing capris too!) and have something to cover my gams! Thanks!

  6. Thank you so much! It's a great and easy pattern, even I could do it. I wrote about them on my Suzie Ridler blog. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. I looked at these and thought "Now how am I going to make these?" I really didn't think that I would be able to make them. But and thats a big but I made them. Your pattern was so easy to follow and to change to fit me. They are grand and will be making some for my friends to wear. Thank you so very much for sharing this pattern.

  8. In working on the foot and after HDC in each stitch around and chaining 2, it is not clear what part of the sock you join to with a slip stitch.

  9. Could I make this pattern in 100% cotton? I don't think so but someone requested them in cotton

    1. I think you could make them out of what ever you want! They would be thick but if that is what the person wants, it would be fine!

  10. I just made a pair of these and I love them! Thank you so much! I hope you don't mind but I put a link to this pattern on my blog!

  11. that's an awesome idea, i love yoga but sometimes i feel very cold. Thanks for sharing!!!! =)

  12. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I've made them in knitting but they seemed to be way too much trouble... so glad to find an easy pattern in crochet. TEMA

  13. This exactly the kind of socks I was looking for, but for a different purpose. I have arthritis in one foot, a bone fusion in the other, and a 30-60 hour week on concrete. I can cover the deep heat, but my toes can still breathe. No matter how light or fitted the socks, I never have them on by morning. Thanks for sharing these!

  14. I can’t imagine focusing long enough to research; much less write this kind of article. You’ve outdone yourself with this material. This is great content. yoga capris

  15. Wow, what some pretty toes!
