Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green with Terri's Yarns & Crafts in Sevierville, Tennessee. In this video, I'm going to give you the basics on how to crochet miniature socks. Depending on the size of the sock you want, you'll either use sock yarn or a sport weight yarn. A crochet hook, a E or an F crochet hook, depending on the size of your yarn, scissors yarn needle. And you'll need a stitch marker that is an open type of stitch marker that is made for use with crochet. So, we're going to start out with the top and you chain 20 and start working in spiral single crochets. Simply work up to the last stitch in the round, which I have marked with my, my marker. And then, continue working around. Once you get your top the distance that you want, you work the heel flap. The heel flap is worked on half of the number of stitches that are in the rest of the sock. And for a certain number of inches and then, decreased. You then pick up stitches along the side of the heel flap, across the front of the foot, down the other side of the heel flap. And start doing decreases. And that's what makes that triangles area of the gusset. Once you get the decreases made and you're back to the same number of stitches that you had at the top of the sock. You work just in spiral rounds again, like we did before until your foot is as long as you need it to be. Then start doing some decreases to decrease the toe area and then, fold the front and the bottom of the sock together. And do slip stitch to seam the sock. This size right here was done out of sock yarn and it will fit approximately an 18 inch doll. This was sport weight yarn, the same number of stitches, just a slightly bigger sock. That's how you make miniature socks. You can find the details for these, instructions on Terri's Yarns & Crafts.
