June contacted us to ask us to help her find an easy and straightforward crochet pattern for socks. She would prefer to crochet these in bulky weight yarn and she is looking for a pattern which includes sizes Toddler, Young Child (3-5 years), Child (6-10 years) and Adult (medium and large). I’ve included some free and premium pattern links for socks which are crocheted with bulky weight yarn. I’ve also included a few free pattern links for socks which are crocheted in medium weight yarn at the very end of the post.

Premium Options (for sale)
One Designer I regularly purchase premium patterns from and recommend has a number of sock and slipper options available. I think these patterns would be a great option if you are ready to try a premium pattern for thick socks or slipper boots in bulky weight yarn. She also has what is called a Bulk Pattern Discount Option which I LOVE where if you want more than 1 pattern you can opt to purchase a ‘bundle’ for a lower price. For example 3 patterns for $12.00 is currently available in her Etsy Shop. You can check out the other Bundle Discounts she has HERE: Bulk Pattern Discounts

I have crocheted a number of Lisa’s patterns and I think they are quite easy to follow. She does a great job explaining how to crochet patterns in different sizes too.
This pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry or Etsy. You can check it out here on Etsy: Slouch Boots Toddler and Youth .
Lisa does not have a men’s version in the slouchy boots but she does have this one:
Man Socks by Lisa van Klaveren and it is available in Men’s Sizes from US 6 – US 15.

I personally have never tried one of Emi Harrington’s designs so I do not know how easy they are to follow. These patterns are available to purchase and available in multiple sizes.
Emi Harrington has a sock pattern available for purchase which includes sizes from 2 years to adult XL. These are crocheted in Aran Weight (Red Heart Super Saver) yarn and use a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook. You can purchase this pattern on Raverly.
She also has a Crochet Sock pattern worked from the heel first and using sport weight yarn and hook sizes 4.5 mm to 6.5 mm. This pattern is available in sizes newborn to adult XXL. You can check this pattern out here: Ravelry
