To many, the sock of the month club isn’t just a fun way to spice up their sock drawer, it’s also an invitation to learn something new and exciting. If you are interested in sock clubs, you’ll love this guide on how to fold socks—specifically those that come in your sock of the month subscription box! Check out these five great ways to fold socks (and only use one hand!).
First Way - The Square Fold
The Square Fold is one of the simplest and most popular ways to fold your socks. It starts by putting your sock on a flat surface with its toe facing away from you. All you have to do is take one side of the sock and fold it over until it meets in the middle. Then, take the other side and fold it over as well until they meet in the middle. Finally, fold both parts back towards you so that they meet in front, forming a square shape with your sock inside.
Second Way - Rolling It Up
This way is a little bit more unconventional and different from what you would expect. It's also a great option if you're in a rush and can't find any other socks that match your outfit. The most important thing about this method is to make sure you roll your sock up the right way - with the toe on top, like a tube of toothpaste.
1) Start by putting your toes through one end of the sock. 2) Roll it up so that it forms a tube (with the toe on top). 3) Put your foot inside and adjust so that it fits comfortably around your ankle or calf. 4) Repeat steps 1-3 with second sock.
Third Way - The Military Roll
The Military Roll is a simple way to fold your socks that also leaves them in pairs for easy storage. This style will keep your socks from getting tangled, and you'll never lose a sock again! Lay one pair of socks flat on the ground and fold it into thirds with one end overlapping the other like so.
Next, take your second pair of socks and lay them on top of the first. Flip up one side of the top sock so it overlaps with the other like so.
Fourth Way - The Over Roll
The Over Roll is a great way to fold your socks when you need something that's easy and quick. Plus, it's perfect for keeping your socks from getting squished in a drawer or bag.
To do The Over Roll, start by laying one sock on top of the other. Next, fold one sock over the other so that it's positioned on top, with both toes facing outwards (toes should be at opposite ends). Now take the lower sock and pull it up and across until it rests neatly over the top of the upper sock. Finally, tuck any excess material into either side of The Over Roll.
Fifth Way - Spindle Folding
The Spindle Folding method is a fun way to fold your socks. Start by turning the sock inside out and making sure that the heel is facing you. Hold the heel with one hand while spinning the rest of the sock around it, threading it through your fingers until it becomes a tight, neat spiral. The end should be tucked under or pushed into place so that there are no loose threads on top. Now you're ready to put on your new, freshly folded sock!
