Hello crochet buddies!!
For the love of winter and Christmas magic, I made this Free Christmas Crochet Pattern for the cozy velvet socks. I love the winter season. There is something magical about it. One of my favorite moments in winter is coming home, snuggling in my favorite lounge wear. wear a pair of cozy fluffy socks. Make myself a cup of coffee or green tea to keep my hands warm while I watch one of my favorite series. If you are an introvert like myself. You will understand that moments like this bring extreme happiness and gratitude. Especially if it is Christmas and you are watching Christmas movies while feeling cozy and warm with your loved ones!
Today’s pattern is perfect for enjoying a moment like the one I have just imagined. It’s velvet yarn make it extremely cozy, soft and fluffy.
If you have read any of my previous posts you may know that am Egyptian and Muslim. So you may be wondering why am I doing a Christmas related pattern? We too love Christmas! I remember when I was young we used to decorate The mini Christmas tree that my lovely grandmother (who was Swedish and christian) bought for us and we always used to call her on Christmas Eve to wish her a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We also used to sit together as a family and watch Christmas movies. We used to watch home alone every single year!

Yarn: 1 Ball super bulky (6) velvet yarn for the main color and a few amount of the secondary color.

Changes for size 8.5-10.5 (39-42)written in parentheses at row 17
Stitches used in this pattern are:
Chain (ch), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (ss), Front post dc, Back post dc
Front post hdc
Yarn over. From the front of the work, insert the hook from right to left. Yarn over and pull a loop so that you have three loops on your hook. Again yarn over and pull through the three loops.Another way to think about it is you are inserting your hook from front to back. Then back to the front and working the stitch as normal.
Back post hdc
Yarn over, then from the back of the work, insert the hook from right to left around the post of the next stitch. Again yarn over and pull a loop through so that you have three loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the three loops. For this post stitch, you insert your hook from back to front, then to the back and complete the stitch.
- The pattern is written with us terms however the hook size is in mm
- Directions are written for women however you can easily make it work for men or children by by increasing or decreasing the starting chain and increasing or decreasing the number of Rounds (before shaping the heels)
- I used white yarn to add the stripes but you can make it with one color
