Lately I had the nice surprise to see two of my creations (out of three) selected in the finalists of the Katia Designers Awards 3 competition! This is a competition organized annually by the yarn brand which I had already participated in 2017 with this pretty pair of flower fingerless mittens here. I would like to thank you all with all my heart for your support and your participation by clicking on the photos of my creations on Facebook. I did not win this time but it motivated me to go on.
I dreamed for a long time to create my own socks and I wanted crochet so I got down to trying to create a beautiful pair of socks and yarn is a medium category, they can also be worn over-socks or slippers.
I simply love them madly! They are sustainable, comfy and keep my feet warm, what more could you ask for? I also like the color which looks more mustard in real life than in the photos I think where they seem yellow.
Romy socks are crocheted in once. Starting from the top down, first the ankle, then the heel, the foot and finally the tip. They are accessible to beginners who have already made a garment or accessory and to the more advenced crocheters. I inserted photos (tutorial) to help you.
Romy socks are available in two sizes US: 5-7 and 7.5-9. On the photos I wear a size 8.
The Printable PDF Version Of The Pattern
If, like me, you prefer watching your patterns on paper instead of crocheting in front of a screen, the PDF version is made for you! This ad-free PDF is designed to be easy to print and contains all of the pattern images you find below. You can purchase the printable PDF on Etsy HERE.
The Star Stitch
Thanks to this project you will be able to learn or rediscover the star stitch at crochet with its illustrative photos and the details that I have provided. This is a stitch that I also explain to you on the Aurora snood pattern page here.
Yarn + Substitution
For this project, one skein = one sock!
I used two skeins of Merino Aran from Katia Yarns, it is a worsted category yarn (3) which ensures a solid and thick finish to keep the feet warm; with 52% merino wool and 48% acrylic and has the distinction of being superwash which makes the yarn more fluid and therefore pleasant to work with.
How to substitute this yarn?
Katia Yarns is an european (spanish based) brand, so to help you make this project I recommend the Vanna’s choice from Lion Brand Yarn which is same texture and gauge.
