Why Crochet Slipper Socks?

In the winter everything seems cold. The hardwood floors are cold, your feet are cold at night, and plain old socks just don’t keep you warm. I have always been a fan of the fuzzy socks you can buy during the winter, but they can be cheap and tend to get lost. I wanted to create a better alternative and I wanted socks for the whole family. Try finding slipper socks for a toddler. Just try.

I designed these crochet socks to be quick and easy, perfect for the advanced beginner and great for a last-minute gift. Plus they are made for almost everyone. I have included 5 sizes below and you can always add a few extra rows in the heel or toe area to make them a bit bigger.

How to Crochet Slipper Socks?

These crochet slipper socks work from the toe to the heel then up the cuff. We will start by making a come at the toe, then work a few rows to give the sock some length. Next, we will stop joining our round so that the heel of the sock is open at the top. Lastly, we will work down the sides of the heel rows and up to create a small cuff.

When you are done crocheting, we will just need to sew up a small hole in the back of the heel and the slipper sock will be complete. You will only have two ends to weave in. Easy peasy, quick and easy!

Choosing Yarn for Your Slipper Socks

I am a fan of the thick socks that you get around Christmas time. I also wanted this to be a very quick project and believe me it is. The toddler socks take roughly 25 minutes, while the men’s socks were just short of an hour. The size 5 yarn is the main reason that these crochet socks work up so fast.

I used Lion Brand‘s Color Made Easy in several colors, but you could also try Red Heart‘s With Love Chunky or Premier Yarn‘s Puzzle Yarn. As long as your gauge matches the gauge in the pattern you can substitute any bulky yarn for these crochet slipper socks.

The Stitches: We are Keeping it Simple

Not only did I want these socks to be quick to work up but I wanted this to be an easy pattern as well. The goal was to make a basic slipper sock pattern and then maybe next fall and winter we could design something a little fancier.

For this pattern, you will need to know how to make a magic circle, chain, and work single and double crochet. You will also need to know how to work into the side of double crochet stitches. That is all you need to know. Easy, right?

Don’t Miss a Single Pattern

If you love to crochet and you don’t want to miss a single free crochet pattern, make sure to sign up for the newsletter! I will send you a quick email a couple of times a week to let you know what is new. Plus you get access to a variety of crochet related printables.

Purchase the Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern (Completely Optional)

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a print out of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted ad-free large font PDF version of the pattern. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

I moved all the photos to the end of the PDF so you can reference them as you needed them and print just the pattern without using up as much ink. The Premium PDF version of the pattern can be purchased on Etsy.
