Picture of Crocheted Trimmed Socks
These cute little socks don't take very long to make. I am going to make a pair in every color for my 3 year old granddaughter. You can match the crochet thread with the beads or purchase contrasting colors.  What little girl wouldn't love a pair of these pretty socks?

Step 1: Supplies needed

Very nice job. I have been doing this for my grand daughter for a several years now. I had not thought of using the safety pins as markers/guides. Thanks for the idea.
I use a smaller thread, DMC #10 and a small hook. Sometimes I run the hook thru the bead, pull the yarn back thru the bead and make a sc.
Often I make two rows of beads. Chain 3, hook thru bead, sc, chain 3, attach to every other space around the sock. Then for the second row, I chain 5, attach bead, chain 5, attach to the sock. I like to do this at Christmas with red and green colored beads, using white thread. It also looks nice with the gold/natural twisted thread.

Once I made 3 rows. . . my neice liked the sound of the beads clanking together.

I washed mine in the machine. After a while the beads kind of look scratched, but by then, my grand daughter had already worn a hole in them or the soles were to dirty to get clean.

thank you, I did use a smaller thread on the blue socks, I live in a small town and have to use what's available. the red and green beads at Christmas would be cute, I will have to remember that!
How adorable! I remember wearing socks like this! I loved the way the beads clanked together :) Was it hard to jab the crochet hook through the sock?

Thanks for the kind words, The crochet hook is so small that it wasn't difficult to get it through the sock.
