I started making these socks a few years ago for my daughter, nieces and baby shower gifts. I can usually finish a pair while watching a show or movie. Most of mine are packed up since my “baby” is turning 3 next month. But she LOVED these, and so did everyone else.
These were my top 3 favorites: personalized socks.
Red (my favorite color to dress my kids in, easy to find them when we go out)
And Rainbow! And the reason I still have some out? My “baby” loves to wear them on her hands!

I was wondering what thread you used for the socks . . . I’ve been wanting to try a pair of grown-up socks in a thread-weight, but wondered about the give & resiliency, as well as the wearing comfort. The beaded kids’ socks are so cute!
Sure, I use crochet thread, it’s in the crochet isles at joanns, although I’m sure you can find it at any yard craft store. They are great to work with. I use them all the time!!! Good luck!

These are adorable! I was wondering if you have had any problems with the beads coming off?? I would worry about them eating beads! LOL
Only once, I made one set with metal bells. The edges that I crochet onto the socks were sharp and kept coming off. I made a trial pair for my daughter and since that happened I never tried to sell those. But I never had any problems with the other beads!

These are so cute! My girls would love them.
Thanks! My little ones love them too! I wish my baby niece lived closer so I could put some on her!
hello, these socks are the cutest ever!!! I was wondering if you have the instructions posted somewhere and I am just missing them or did you just post pictures? I would love to make my niece some but I am a little confused how you stitched them. I love all your work and thank you for sharing!!!!
This was back when I had an etsy store so I wasn’t sharing the pattern, thanks for the reminder, I’ll put together a tutorial and pattern!
i have 2 Grand daughters and I would love if you were to put together a tutorial and a pattern! I have 4 Daughters and one of their Aunts made them each a pair when they were little, how we adored them! If we had lived closer I would have had her teach me how to make them! Thanks for everything, I’m so glad i found you for i find you to be quite interesting!
Since I learned this from someone else I haven’t thought about doing my own tutorial, just use a thread crochet hook, they are small and metal, and you can use them to poke through the socks, then do an sc then chain then poke through and do an sc again. I string the beads on first than work two into each chain.
I recently purchased a bag of craft items at a yard sale that included crochet thread and a LOT of beads. In the bottom of the bag was a pair of socks one of which was completed as above. I finished the other and then started playing with the beads completing a pair for myself. I wore my red, white, and blue pair to a 4th of July family outing and received requests from 7 granddaughters ranging in age from 7 to 22 for beaded socks in each of their favorite colors. These are adorable for babies but older girls appreciate them also.
I have been trying to crochet beads with the letters of our granddaughter’s name onto socks but can’t seem to figure out a pattern so that the beads aren’t going sideways instead of being read horizonally. Would you please share your secret? I liked the first pair of socks pictured but can’t copy what you have done.
thread the beads on first (depending on if your stitching clockwise or counter clockwise you might need to thread the beads on backwards)
will u make me some?
I’m sorry I don’t make and sell product, just share patterns. Would you like me to add a clear pattern for these?
