I haven't crocheted in years but just bought some yarn recently to try again. Do you have a pattern for socks? I always wanted to make socks but I don't knit very well. Thanks for the slipper pattern, I'm going to try it. - Sheryl

Hi, everyone. I crochet quite a bit. After having worked my way up to the "advanced" patterns, I am now trying to do thread crochet (doilies, etc.). I have a lot of patterns if anyone is in need.

Is it possible to crochet socks? Does anyone have a pattern? Thanks in advance. - Sheryl
