These quick-to-knit slipper socks start with a garter stitch sole and short row heel. A contrasting color is used to pick up stitches and work the top of the sock in stockinette stitch. Knit a simple ribbed tube with stripes for the leg of the sock and finish by knitting a rounded garter stitch toe.
Play with worsted weight scrap yarns and stripes for an even more colorful cozy sock.
Sizes SM, L Designed to fit a European size 35-3738-42, 43-47. Large size is shown on 11.5” / 29cm feet (European size 46) These socks will stretch with wear so if you’re in between sizes, I recommend choosing the smaller size option so the sock fits with negative ease.
