Months ago, I kept seeing some gorgeous boot socks all over Pinterest. They're completely perfect - crocheted, soft-looking, tall, and lined with just a hint of lace. I thought they'd be perfect peeking out of a pair of boots, but alas, I can't justify £48 for a pair of socks - no matter how cute! Naturally, I decided to make my own, and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out (though I still wouldn't mind having that schmancy pair, either...)!

P.S. I beg you not to judge my knobby knees. Enjoy making yo' self some loverly new socks!

Step 1: What You Need

  • knee socks
  • lace - about 36" so that you have enough to account for stretching
  • coordinating thread
  • scissors
  • medium needle
<p>I would add that you can use stretchable thread. It makes it the proces of sewing much simpler. But great job- I love it.</p>
Thank you so much, and your knees are adorable! ;)
Wow, cool, your house isn't boarded up anymore! You must be happy !
I always wondered how people did this - very cute!
It's definitely a quick(ish), easy project, as long as you remember to stretch as you sew. A good way to get a lot of impact for very little cost!
