So, the other day, I was looking for easy and simple knitting/crochet patterns that would give me a quick break from sweater knittings. Something always come up first: socks! I ended up exploring lots of fabulous "sock patterns".

By the way, how often do you knit socks? I have friends who knit socks all the time around a year as well as friends who never knit socks. It feels like for some people knitting socks is just like a daily yoga that makes their life moving forward. I am kind of in the middle. I like to knit socks, all kinds: various funky styles and color combos. But, when it comes to wearing knitted socks I am sort of chicken. Perhaps I know myself little too well. I know how I walk. I walk extra wild with big strides and stomp pretty hard when I feel hurry or dance-y. (Are you picturing it? It is pretty ridiculous look.) I am afraid these funky things I do with my feet would destroy my socks easily, what do you think?

Anyway, last few days, I finished those adorable little cuties. They are quick, cute and feel awesome. I really love the look! The only one thing that concerns me is they keep slipping off my feet. They are well-fit but, just don't stay still. I fell in love with them dearly so I'd love to make more only if there's any way I can keep them on my feet. I am pretty determined to find the solution.

Any of you have the same problem? If you know how to fix this, please let me know. I'd be absolutely grateful. The solution could take those little socks to the next level, easily! If I find anything doable, I would update this post with a brilliant idea. Fingers crossed!

Hi Shelley,

Yes, unfortunately those are slipping down.. I am a bit disappointed but (!) I think your solution would work. You should try it and let me know how it goes. Good luck!

Have’nt finished my Skimmer socks yet, but loving the pattern. Historically this type of sock always slips down into my shoe, so I’m really hopeful with these. Should they slip down I thought I would thread some shirring elastic through the last row of the rib.

you could try sewing ballet ribbons to them and winding them on your ankles. Looks very cute and it might stop them slipping off.
