If you can crochet a circle, you can crochet chair socks! Scroll down for the recipe…
We’ve just moved into a lovely little apartment, with beautiful parquet flooring. The floor is almost too gorgeous. I swear it keeps me awake at night. I used to fret about nuclear war, and now I’m just worried about parquet flooring. Maybe I’ve finally grown up (or maybe just moved to Switzerland).
For a couple of weeks, we ate off the outdoor IKEA table the previous tenants left. Jesse argued that we didn’t need a table at all, but I begged to differ, and finally pointed out that it would be hard to eat raclette off our laps. That did the trick.
Enter our new table:
Isn’t it something? I am just in love with it, although I appreciate that vintage vinyl isn’t for everyone (they don’t make them like that anymore!). Buying it was a mission, as I don’t really speak French, and the flea market stall holder didn’t speak English. He insisted it was easier to deliver maintenant, so it was loaded into a van, and I was too, wondering about the wisdom of such a move. Clearly it all worked out fine, and I got to practise my French into the bargain, although I petered out after Je m’appelle Rachel et j’habite Chamilles… Google Maps and Google Translate did the rest.
Once it was finally inside, I noticed one teeny tiny fatal flaw. One stool was missing its chair leg cap. My floors!
For three days, I just didn’t let Jesse sit on that particular stool, but today I finally got around to making a crochet chair sock for it. It took almost no time at all. This crochet chair socks recipe couldn’t be simpler, and I hope it saves your floors too!
Select a washable, durable yarn which works with either your furniture or your decor. I used less than two meters of black acrylic DK yarn and a 3.5mm hook. Because it was from stash, this project was free.
As always, I’m using American crochet terms, and you can find full descriptions of them all here.
Now dream happy dreams of your parquet flooring!

In the last six months, I’ve sewed a whole bunch of face masks. Most face masks fit well, but none were perfect. We picked up a couple of ready-made reusable face masks to try out, and J decided he preferred them. The pattern is easy as anything to make – easier than any other pattern […]
