Announcing Paintbox Yarns Socks!

Paintbox Yarns – the go-to brand for crocheters who love lots of colors, and good value – has announced the launch of Paintbox Socks! Available in seven colorways across four different pattern styles for a total of 28 unique designs.

Can you really crochet socks?

Yes! We know crocheting socks isn’t as popular as knitting them, and we know that these photos are of course of knitted socks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t crochet a pair using this fantastic new yarn! In fact, we’ve teamed up with our Crochet Club expert Kate Eastwood to bring you some fantastic tutorial videos showing you how you can crochet your very own pair of socks!

But first, a look at the colors!

Paintbox Yarns Socks comes in four exciting stories: Zebra, Fair Isle, Stripes, and Pixel! Each story contains seven fabulous colorways in this hardy 75% super wash wool, 25% polyamide sock yarn!


Zebra creates fabulous zebra stripes as you crochet in glorious color combinations!

Fair Isle

Fair Isle creates a print effect combining your favourite Paintbox shades!


Stripes includes gentle ombre shades alongside defined self-striping Rainbow, Summer Vacation and Autumn colorways..


Pixel produces seven different colors of a gorgeous, gentle speckled finish.

    In this video, it looks like she is doing single crochet instead of double, as I don’t see her winding the yarn around the hook before inserting it into the stitch. Perhaps it should be shown closer or enlarged. Thanks

    Wow, love these socks. I’m currently crocheting a pair of socks using another pattern Love Crochet has. Can’t remember the designers name sorry.
    But loving making them. 😊
