UPDATE:
 I'VE HAD SEVERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO MAKE THE HOLES IN THE SOCKS. THE SOCKS I USED ALREADY HAVE LITTLE HOLES IN THE CUFF OF THE SOCK. IT REMINDS ME OF CROSS STITCH MATERIAL. I'VE ACTUALLY CROSS STITCHED ON SOME SOCKS. HOPE THIS HELPS. IF NOT E-MAIL ME. THANK YOU AND HAPPY CROCHETING.  KATHY

  2. Thank you for the pattern. I've made these before, but my pattern was more complicated. This one is so simple and easy to follow. I made one sock last night and will finish the match this evening.

  5. I'M NOT SURE WHAT SIZE THE BEADS WERE I JUST KNOW THEY WERE SMALL. I DO KNOW THEY WERE NOT THE SEED BEADS. THEY WERE IN A LITTLE TUBE AT WAL-MART. SORRY!

  8. KATHY, I LOVE YOUR PATTERN FOR THE SOCKS. I WOULD HOWEVER LOVE TO HAVE THE PATTERN FOR THE DOG SWEATER ON THE CHIHUAHUA. SHE LOOKS JUST LIKE MY SPARKIE! I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A CUTE DOG SWEATER PATTERN TO CROCHET FOR HER.

    THANKS SO MUCH

  9. Thank you Kathy for this great pattern. I searched all over to find a beaded sock pattern. I have made numerous pairs of these socks. Your imagination is the limit!! As long as the beads can be threaded onto the crochet thread being used you can use any socks!! I just use a small hook and go right into the edge of the sock with the sc foundation stitches. Just go a few stitches in from the edge so they can't tear the edge of the sock if pulled on. My granddaughter can't get enough socks. She wears them all the time!! I get some of the socks with the anti-skid bottom and they can run around in them and not slip on the floor. She loves the sound the beads make when she moves her feet. Thank you sooo much again for the pattern.
