    Short, thin sock pattern

    I am looking for a pattern for short thin socks. Can anyone point me in the right direction? If it is a excellent pattern I am happy to pay for it. So many patterns on the web but difficult to know what I am getting.

    I've tried quite a few sock patterns but never liked any of them and never bothered with making the second one.

    There is something about a crocheted sock that no matter how thin the yarn, you still can't comfortably wear them in shoes like you can a knitted sock. Or at least that is my opinion. Good luck and I hope you can find something suitable.

    That is really interesting! I will look forward to other replies. Sadly I don’t knit and I suspect that socks aren’t the thing to learn on!

    MeToo! is right. Crochet is almost always bulkier than knitting, and if you're looking for a thin sock to crochet, I think you're looking for something that is non-existent. It might be possible to crochet a sock in a very lace-weight yarn, but then I'd worry about the durability (if you could even find a pattern).
