As much as I love to sew, and try to sew as much of our clothes as possible, I never thought to sew socks. When I first saw a post, I fell in love with the possibilities. No more boring socks. I can make my own with my favourite fabrics, using up scraps or repurposing clothes.
After the seed was planted, I discovered there is a whole world of sock sewing patterns out there. Here are some of my favourite sock sewing patterns and tutorials.

The Rogue sock pattern from The Wolf and The Tree originally caught my eye. Their store has sock patterns for adults and kids, as well as tights and leg-warmers (the close relatives of socks!). See them all here.
The Cozy Critter Socks from Peekaboo Pattern Shop includes 8 animal appliques to add a cute touch to your handmade socks. The pattern comes in sizes newborn to 12 years, with ankle, crew and knee-high options. Cozy Toes Socks is the adult version of the pattern, which also includes 3 width options as well as the options above!

And would it be wrong to sew a pair of socks just so I could make this adorable sock dragon from Craft Passion?
