If you’re new to beading, this is the sock to start with. I’ve used my most simple, vanilla construction, and the geometric eyelet pattern is decorated with just 16 beads on each sock. Try using the crochet hook method for adding the beads – you don’t need to pre-thread them on to the yarn, and I have included a step-by-step guide in the pattern. There is plenty of stretch in this sock, so if you are between sizes, choose the smaller one, and you could make the cuff stretchier still by leaving the stitches untwisted.
This cuff-down sock pattern, with a gusset, heel flap and grafted toe, contains step-by-step instructions for the easy crochet hook method of beading (which avoids the need to pre-thread all the beads at once). Beading is optional of course! And if you intend wearing your lovely socks with closed shoes, I suggest omitting the beads on the foot section.
Treat yourself and your feet to a pair of indulgent beaded socks, because you’re worth it!
