I live in a beautiful apartment with beautiful wooden floors. But the dining table chairs screeching across the floors were causing me grief, so I made them these chair socks! They started out as a purely practical project, with the hope that it would add a bit of colour to the room too.
If you are a beginner crocheter these are perfect projects to practice crocheting in the round and your single crochet. They’re perfect for using up any leftover yarn and are great projects when you want something quick and easy to make.

How to make your chair socks (one colour – medium size)
To start your chair sock, you will be crocheting in the round. This means you will be making a circular piece of work that starts from the middle and works its way outwards in a spiral.
Row 1: Chain 2, 6 single crochet in second chain from hook (6 stitches)
Row 2: Single crochet 2 (increase) in each single crochet around (12 stitches)
Row 3: *Single crochet 1, single crochet 2 in next stitch* (increase). *Repeat 5 more times (18 stitches)
Row 4: *Single crochet 2, single crochet 2 in next stitch* (increase). *Repeat 5 more times (24 stitches)
Row 5–29: Single crochet in each stitch for 24 rows (approximately 12cm or for desired length)
Slip stitch final stitch and cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing.
To finish: Fold the top of your chair sock over by 1cm. With the long tail, sew the edge into the sock along the final row of stitches. You now have a chair sock! Repeat for as many chairs you’d like to dress.
