Crocheted Tri-Bead Baby Socks

These cute little baby socks are very simple to make, so you can make a pair of baby socks for every occasion. They are great for beginners because they use only the simplest stitches, the chain stitch, single crochet and slip stitch.
Note:The actual socks I bought and I only crocheted the beads on.  Also your hook has to be small enough to go through the hole in  your bead. Most of the time the hole inside tri-beads are relatively large. To save on colored beads I use a clear beads in between all the colored beads. I usually use cotton crochet tread but I'm sure you could use sock or sport weight yarn etc.
 Special stitches: Bead Stitch=insert your hook through a bead, yo, pull through bead and loop. I'm going to abbreviate this st as bds
To start unfold the socks, with slip knot on your hook, (insert your hook into the top the sock (make sure you are inserting it into the knitting and you have more than just the elastic band on top of your sock), sc, ch 3, bds, ch 3,) Repeat all the way around the sock, the distance between your stitches is up to you,  most of the time I use 24 beads per sock depending on the size of the sock.


  1. If you don't mind my asking where did you find your Tri-Beads?

    1. To be honest, I don't remember exactly. I think I got some at Michaels and some at Walmart. At Michaels you can buy them in a multi-color pack, or you can buy some colors individually. I don't remember the selection that Walmart had available beyond a multi-color pack. However I'm sure that the availability in each of these stores varies by location.
