Crochet Bootsy Sock Pattern

If you live in the north like us you may have come to appreciate the warmth of wool socks.  Over the past few years my appreciation for wool socks have grown exponentially.  If my feet are not warm then I am not warm, and wool helps keep the warmth in like no other I have found.  There is something so natural and comforting when you wear wool, and having wool socks just makes me cozy and comfortable.  I like wearing my hand knit wool socks, but in a drafty farmhouse they still aren’t warm enough in the cold of winter when it is -10F outside.  So, for the winter I like to double up socks, and wear something even heavier on the outside.  That is wear this pattern is so great.  They are thicker than my hand knit socks I wear with shoes so the bootsy socks are warmer.  The thickness also adds to their durability, which is always a plus when you put your time into making something.  The cuff is made out of Lion Brand Homespun which adds a little bit of extra softness in case it rubs against the calf.  The pattern enables you to make them to be tight and fitted like a typical sock, or slightly looser to have them more like a slipped on booty, which is what I prefer for me.

Machine Knit Easy Long Summer Scarf

Machine Knit Long Summer Scarf

One thing about so many things that are made from yarn is that they tend to be for cooler weather. This super easy and quick machine knit scarf is great to add a little knit softness to any outfit – even in the summer!  It can be worn like a necklace, or just draped for a light shawl.  Depending on the fiber and yarn thickness you can change what is showcased on this scarf.  I have made a light acrylic accessory that has subtle details, but these subtle details are great for projects with art yarn or when you want color work to be the main visual story.

Crochet Easy Skinny Ladder Scarf

Crochet Easy Skinny Ladder Scarf

This is a great crochet project to use up some of those single skeins we all have around.  It is made with Red Heart Soft (find it here) yarn in Really Red, which makes a great soft fabric out of worsted weight yarn that is comfortable to wear next to the skin.  It is 100% acrylic so no itches if you are sensitive to wool.  But, if you have something that is thicker or thinner, and you want to do a different material content then use it!  Just adjust the hook size accordingly up or down to be able to make your desired scarf.  Gauge is not as extremely important on this pattern since you just keep going till you either A) run out of yarn or B) have it as long as you like.  Yay – no gauge swatch!

Welcome to the City Farmhouse Studio

fiber hand craft

Hello!  I am Cathy, and I have created this blog to provide a place for others to learn more information about traditional fiber based hand crafts through tutorials and patterns.  As I was learning I found it difficult to have truly basic information for beginners, so I want to fix that.  Not only do I want to educate on different techniques and crafts, but also offer free patterns with contemporary techniques and modern styling.  I want to make things that are stylish that I get complements off of.  Things that have interesting details and construction that make them look store-bought, but actually are easy to make with step by step instructions that are easy to understand.

Also, through hand crafts I find a peaceful element in an otherwise stressful and busy life being a wife and mother with a full-time job.  Not only do I want to make things that make those who wear it feel happy making them, but also help us find a little happiness in the process of making things.

I hope that you will follow me and find a little time for yourself to enjoy what joys a little fiber fun can give.
