Alpine Mint Slipper Socks | Free Crochet Sock Pattern

Crochet up a pair of these gorgeous beginner Alpine Mint Slipper Socks perfect for last minute gifts for the men in your life!

Men are the worst…to shop for.

Okay. We might not be THE worst but we are right up on that list. This year, I really set out to crochet up quick to stitch gifts perfect for the men in your life. We had the Black Balsam Beanie, Mountain Mitts, and now…the Alpine Mint Slipper Socks!

The Alpine Mint Slipper Socks are quick to stitch and perfect for last minute gifting. The socks use less than two skeins of Color A (the green) and just a few yards of Color B (the cream). Now, the yarn used in the pattern is Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice which is a ‘bouncy’ acrylic.

What is a bouncy acrylic?

I’m glad you asked. It’s your Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, Red Heart Super Saver, and Vanna’s Choice. It is not your Caron’s Simple Soft, Lion Brand Basic Stitch, or Lion Brand Heartland. These yarns are ‘shiny acrylics’ and just don’t have the stretch needed to make these slippers fit the way you’ll want.
