For socks that will fit just right, make a tube sock. They are easy. Measure the person's foot around just above the toes, then measure the length of the foot and add 4 inches.
Crochet a disk/circle that is the same as the measurement you got when you measured above the toes. Make this circle by increasing until you have the right size. Using single crochet works best as you are less likely to get blisters.
Now "stop" increasing and just keep crocheting even till you reach the measurement for the length of the sock from the big toe to the heal plus the 4 inches.
Now have the person try it on. If you need to, increase a few stitches every now and then so the sock will fit over the calf and work till the sock is as high as the person would like.
I have very, very large calves. I can not wear socks that go above the ankle unless I crochet my own. I just randomly add stitches every now and again as I go and try it on often. I also have 2 different sized feet by about 2/3rd of an inch. This type of sock can fit either foot and heel work is not needed.

Hi all, I am looking for a free crochet sock pattern that is real easy!

If you google how to crochet socks you'll get lots of links, but I can't remember which ones were just for girls. There's also a site called Bev's Cottage that has links to crocheted sock patterns and one or two were for girls.
One of the things I'm looking for myself is crochet socks that can be worn in shoes and not just thick ones. There's a book on amazon for crocheting socks but I don't know if they have kids' sized socks in the book.
