Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green with Terri's Yarns and Crafts in Sevierville, Tennessee. This video is how to do socks in the round. For the yarn you'll need a sport weight yarn, it can be either acrylic or a cotton acrylic blend like this or a wool acrylic blend, a size E crochet hook and stitch markers for crochet. We're going to start the sock out with ribbing and to do the ribbing you chain eleven and then work single crochets in the front loop only. You work enough rows that will go around your ankle and then join the ribbing together into a round and then start crocheting stitches in the edges of the ribbing to make the top of the sock. The next step is to make the heel and the heel flap. After you have your heel flap done, you pick up stitches around or along the side of the heel flap and continue on across the front of the sock and back up the heel flap and then start working decreases to get rid of any of the extra stitches, that's the gusset. You can see it on here, it's a triangular piece there between your heel and the top of the sock, decrease down to about twelve stitches on the toe area and then single crochet or slip stitch the front and the back of the foot together at the toe and there you have a single crocheted sock worked in the round. You can find details for this project at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
