We all have great accomplishments that we are proud of. Most of these are work related, or even charity related, but how about making something for you as an accomplishment. Rewarding yourself by making something for yourself is one step in self appreciation, and you can start by a simple task of making socks to warm you up in the cooler weather.
Get the Right Tools
The yarn available for crocheting and knitting vary depending on weight. For socks, you will need to get worsted weight yarn, as its weight is easy to work with and is warmer, thus suitable for making socks. You will also need to get a crochet hook of suitable length to give you the desired results. Note that the size of the hook will determine how close the stitching work will be. You can look for hook sizes between 4.5-6.6 mm.
Choose a Pattern You Love
There are very many patterns to choose from, when it comes to crocheting. For starters, knowing just one crochet stitch pattern is not bad. A simple single crochet stitch will do. You will find tutorials on how to make the socks online, as well as be able to download PDF versions with many patterns to choose from.
Now that you have everything you need to make your own socks, it is time for you to challenge yourself and find out how good your crochet skills can be. With time, you can advance from the basic single stitch to more complex crochet stitches.
