The Inspiration

Slipper socks are my FAV quick to stitch projects. They work for gifts, are perfect for learning new stitches and techniques, and you can use up that stash of worsted weight I know you’ve got lying around.

These slipper socks are worked toe up and they features a really easy heel. You won’t really have to work all that hard. If you can crochet a hat – you can crochet these socks.

The Design

These socks have a few things going for them:

  1. Toe up for easy construction.
  2. A super simple heel.
  3. Fun all over stitch pattern
  4. Chunky stitches for super comfy stitching

We’ll start at the toe and work up to the heel, then work a super simple heel, and start on the leg without having to work any increases or decreases! Fun, right?

The yarn we’re using is Caron Simply Soft Speckle Yarn which comes in a variety of really fun colors with small specks of colors that will give these slippers the perfect unique look and feel!
