35+ Free Crochet Sock, Slipper and Sandal Patterns

Those who crochet always need fresh, new ideas for small projects. Crochet socks are perfect for a portable project. Check out these free crochet sock patterns and make sure you have something to do next time you need to sit in a waiting room. 

Socks, slippers, or sandals are great to work on while watching a movie at home or enjoying a visit with friends.

Can I Really Crochet Socks?

Socks are not just for knitters. With a proper pattern, you can crochet comfortable socks that fit your feet perfectly. 

Start with a simple pattern like Basic Toe-Up Crochet Sock. Starting at the toe is a technique that allows you to try on your socks as you crochet, ensuring just the right length!  You can also make adjustments to a different size while the sock is still small rather than finishing a sock and finding it too tight—always disappointing. Toe-up patterns are perfect for the new sock maker.

For quicker gratification, make slippers or ankle socks such as Bed Slippers or Fishbone Crochet Ankle Socks.  For another quick and easy project, try Crocheted Yoga Socks with no heels or toes to slow you down. They will make you the envy of your exercise class! They also make a nice gift for a dancer or yoga teacher.

Some of the more unique patterns include cozy Knee-High Boot Socks and sweet cotton Mule Slippers.  There are also patterns for Crochet Sandals if you are looking for a summer project.

Socks require smaller amounts of yarn than a sweater or afghan, so they are a great way to enjoy more expensive luxury yarns.  For the more frugal, they are an opportunity to use up the leftovers from those larger projects.  Let nothing go to waste.

But What if I Don’t Crochet?

Do you prefer knitting? You are in luck, because we have also collected over 25 free knit sock and slipper patterns.  Whatever your preferred craft, you can create something wonderful with your own hands.

When Can I Start?

Right away!  Pick your favorite, then download the pattern to your tablet or print the pattern.  Check your stash for suitable yarn or shop for yarn to match the gauge on your crochet sock pattern to ensure a perfect fit. 

Have fun crocheting socks, slippers, or sandals for yourself or as gifts for family and friends.

Note: Homeless shelters often cite socks as a most requested item. Perhaps you could make a pair or several for a local charity.
