My daughter has a lovely tile floor in her dining room but when you slide the chairs over it, you hear a rather loud scraping sound. The chairs have those plastic feet on the bottom, which are supposed to eliminate sound, but . . . they don’t.
I decided to crochet “socks” for the chairs. They work so well, I wanted to share the pattern with everyone in case anyone else might want to make these.
I used a size “I” crochet hook, and some ordinary 4-ply acrylic yarn.
Round 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in the first ch from hook. Join with slip stitch into first ch. (6 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in same st, 2 sc in each of next 6 sc, join with slip stitch into first ch. (12 sc)
Round 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st, 1 sc in each of next 12 sts. (12 sc)
Rounds 4 – 12: same as Round 3. End off and hide tails inside of sock.
I suggest making a “cap” for extra protection of the foot part of the sock, to make it last longer. For this, all you do is follow Rounds 1 and 2, then end off there, leaving a long tail, about 18”, which you will thread into a yarn needle and sew the cap onto the end of the sock.
The yarn is slightly stretchy, so these socks fit snuggly. If you need socks slightly larger or smaller, I think the easiest way to achieve that would be to use a larger or smaller crochet hook. You could make the socks longer, if you wish. I made them this size because I didn’t want them to fall off too easily, and I think if they were much shorter, they might.
