Yes, there are many patterns for crocheted socks, and I have crocheted a few of them. The interplay of crochet is always a system of slipped knots, giving a tighter, firmer structure than knitting. They are OK for what they are and can be soft and drapey if a larger needle is used and the proper stitches are employed.
Are crocheted socks comfortable?
Tiny stitches are always more comfortable on your feet than big clunky ones. Some people, though, do not like homemade socks. Period. I know people who have complained that homemade socks are too bulky (whether they are knit or crochet) and that they don’t fit properly in their shoes.
How long does it take to crochet a pair of socks?
With needles in size US 2, they will be finished in about two weeks. Regular adult-sized socks made with worsted yarn and size 4 or 5 needles take me about a week. Bedsocks made with worsted only take a few days. I knit about four hours a day using continental style and Magic Loop.
How many skeins do I need for a blanket?
For a full-size blanket, you will need quite a bit of yarn, probably around 13-18 balls or skeins of yarn. Usually, afghans are very colorful, so you may have one skein of each and, if it’s it’s really colorful, that can add up. If the blanket only has one or a few colors, it may only be 10 skeins.

How do you crochet socks to fit?
Ease or inch the sock up and over the foot. Do not yank or pull the sock on by the cuff. Each time you try the sock on, it will stretch the stitches and your gauge will change. Always squeeze the sock back down into shape and then continue crocheting.
