Crochet WIP, Fall collection 2017, Heart opening

Fairy-Ista Socks (wip) + Yarn used & tools

Since I returned home I got inspired by the cozy weather outside my door. Living near the forest, I have a chance to witness the leaves dance outside my window every time I look out and that it kind of inspire me to create this whimsical socks.

I really do love the gentle colors of this yarn. This is Lana Grossa Elastico print I got them online here in Germany. I did some research for You on love crochet dot come since they offer lots of discount on many brands. But I only found Lana Grossa Elastico which I believe it’s the same weight.

To make this socks, You will need; sport/5ply/12wpi/fine yarn. I choose Lana Grossa Elastico Print. Crochet hooks: 3.75mm & 4mm. Yarn needle, Stitch markers and a pair of scissors.

Btw, I kind of love the simple, basic Susan Bates hook 🙂 First, I thought it would be hard to use it, in fact, I like it a lot. It’s really proving me that, I should never judge what I have never tried.

I wear socks size 37 and I have used about 1 skein for one side. So to complete this project on my size, I would need 2 skeins of yarn. I also find it become loose after a day of wearing one side of the sock 😂😂😂 so the measurement/pattern of this will be able to fit from size 37 – 39 easily, since is adjustable with the corset/crisscrossing as You see in the images. Oh, I actually used another yarn for the crisscrossing strap. I will take some photos and share with You together when the pattern is finally finished.

This is my first time writing the socks pattern. I was asking myself; “How can I go on about the sizing? Then the answer pop-up. Well, if I can make the bra sizing, I can also do the socks 😂😂😂 so this is what I am doing right now. It takes a bit time as I also filming it as well. I normally send out the written pattern to my Patrons to test for me, but this time I will also open for more testers and if You want to be one of the testers of this pattern then comment below by answer these questions.

  • How long have You been crocheting?
  • What is the size of Your socks?
  • And if You are one of the chosen ones, how long do You need to accomplish this Fairy-Ista socks?
  • Do You have these yarn in hands? If not how long does it take to get the yarn ready?
  • Have You sign-up to receive the update on my blog yet? If not would You consider to be part of our tribe?

I will be choosing 3 – 5 testers from the comments before my next blog post. and will send out the pattern to You as soon as it’s done. Which I guess, it will be ready in a couple days.

Hope You like my new design, leave Your comment and share Your thoughts even though You are not interested to be one of the testers, I still want to hear from You.

See You later 😍

  1. Hey Maya I love your work! I follow a few of your Instagrams and you are truly inspirational! My name is Alora, I have been crocheting for about 3 years. I like to make blankets and clothing. I am a US shoe size of 8, not sure of my sock size yet. I do not have your exact yarn in my stash but I have quite a large stash and could easily find something comparable. I could probably have this pattern tested in about a week and a half if I am lucky enough to be chosen. (: I wish you peace and blessings on all your endeavors. Namaste Maya .

  2. Hola Maya, te he descubierto recientemente por instagram, me fascinan tus creaciones y tu creatividad. Mi número de calcetín es un 38 europeo, uno más que el tuyo. Llevo tejiendo hace 18 años, hago alfombras a crochet, bolsos, gorros, bufandas y una manta etc… Podría tener tejidos tus calcetines en 3 a 4 días, ese mismo hilo no tengo pero lo puedo pedir ya que es precioso.
    Un saludo
