Introduction

Toesies are great for any time of the year because you just slip them on your toes and they will warm you up! They are especially nice for sleeping if you have cold toes since there is no messing around with extra sheets or covers. Toesies are pretty much the toe part of a pair of socks but a lot comfier.

They can also be used for your fingers on cold winter days.

Materials List

Multicolored sock yarn
Other yarn of your choice of colors that will complement the sock yarn colors.
Size J crochet needle

Yarn needle

Finished Size

My feet are wide so this is what they are, 2 1/2 in or 7cm tall; 4 in or 9 cm in the middle.

Gauge

NO GAUGE

The Pattern

Using both the sock yarn and the other yarn make a slip knot then chain 2 stitches. Circular crochet until is a little bit smaller than your foot. Then start doing single crochet until it's a little bit longer than the ball of your foot. Then decrease each round until you can still put it on but it fits snugly.

REPEAT FOR SECOND TOESIE.

Thanks for response. My guess is that yarn in this pic IS Homespun Lion Brand, right, not the stretchy kind.

Looks like cheery, happy warm toes! :o)

I am VERY new to crochet and thought this would be a great first project. I've practiced all of the stitches in my book but I don't know what you mean by circular crochet. Any help will be much apprecieated.

Thanks, Anita

Here's a better way of explaining it:

  Rn 1  Ch 2 6 Sc into first Ch Sp St into first Sc

Rn 2  Ch1 inc  in each st around sp st in first sc

Rn 3  ch 1 *inc in first sc sc in next sc rep from * around sp st in first sc

Rn 4  ch 1 *inc in first sc sc in next 2 sc rep from * around sp st in first

Rn 5  ch 1 sc in each sc around sp st in first sc

Rn 6  ch1 * inc 1 in first sc scin the next 3 sc rep from * around

Rn 7  ch 1 sc in each sc around sp st in first sc

Rep rn 7 until a wee bit shorter than you want them

1 dec rn  ch 1 dec in first sc sc in next sc 

Rep dec rn 1 until you can still pull on the toseie but it will stay on

Repeat for second toseie

weave in ends
