Cozy Crochet Slipper Socks

I’ve had so many requests for a crochet sock pattern, and I’m finally delivering! When coming up with this pattern, I really wanted to make something that would be a quick project, and not too challenging for anyone who hasn’t crocheted socks before. I have also been noticing reading socks and slipper socks at my favourite boutique stores lately, so I thought it would be a great idea to make a pattern for this style of sock since they seem to be in high demand!

The yarn that I chose to work with for these socks is Wool of the Andes Tweed worsted weight yarn from We Crochet. It’s a gorgeous textured wool yarn, that is also very well priced. If you choose to use the same yarn (or any wool yarn), keep in mind that you do have to hand wash the socks, and lay them flat to dry.

I also incorporated cables because I love them. They are a simple way to add texture and style to any project. They also sort of act like ribbing, and add stretch, which is key when making socks!

The end result is a quick pattern for socks that are so cozy and warm that anyone would love a pair to lounge around in at home on a cold fall/winter day.


I have written out and posted the free pattern below on this page.

Cozy Slipper Socks Crochet Pattern

Materials:

Size:

The width of these stretchy socks is perfect for a typical adult female foot.  The length can be customized in the pattern.

Gauge:

3.5 stitches, 3 rows = 1 inch in HDC.

Abbreviations:

CH: Chain.

HDC: Half Double Crochet

CSHDC: Chainless Starting Half Double Crochet.

DC: Double Crochet.

Pattern:

These socks are worked from the toe up, with an afterthought heel.

Toe:

Make a magic circle.  The toe is worked in spirals; do not join at beginning of each round.  It’s a good idea to use a removable stitch marker to mark beginning of each round.

Round 1: CH2, 9HDC into magic circle.

Round 2: 2HDC in each hdc until end of round (18 stitches).

Round 3:  *HDC in next 2 hdc, 2HDC in next hdc; repeat from * to end of round (24 stitches).

Round 4:  *HDC in next 2 hdc, 2HDC in next hdc; repeat from * to end of round (32 stitches).

Continue to Foot

Foot:

Join with a slip stitch to first stitch of previous round. 

From here on, the rounds are joined and no longer worked in spirals.  Join using the chainless starting HDC (CSHDC) and invisible slip stitch.  If you have not used this method before, watch the following Leelee Knits video tutorial that will walk you through it:

Round 1: CSHDC in first stitch, HDC in each remaining stitch; join to beginning of round.

Round 2: CSHDC in first stitch; *skip next 2 hdc, work FPDC around stitch one row below the next 2 hdc, working in front of FPDC just made, work FPDC around stitch one row below each skipped hdc; HDC in next hdc*; repeat from * to * two more times; HDC in remaining 16 hdc; join to beginning of round.

Round 3: CSHDC in first stitch, HDC in each remaining stitch; join to beginning of round.

Round 4: CSHDC in first stitch; *FPDC around next 4 fpdc, HDC in next hdc*; repeat from * to * two more times; HDC in remaining 16 hdc; join to beginning of round.

Repeat rounds 1-4 until your work measures just under or equal to 2 inches less than the length of the foot (from top of toes to end of heel).  The remaining 2 inches will be made up when you work the heel.  For example, my feet measure 9.5 inches, so I work the foot until the total length is 7.5 inches long (including the toe part).   

Continue to Heel Placement.

Heel Placement:

Round 1: CSHDC in first stitch, HDC in each remaining stitch; join to beginning of round.

Round 2: CSHDC in first stitch; *skip next 2 hdc, work FPDC around stitch one row below the next 2 hdc, working in front of FPDC just made, work FPDC around stitch one row below each skipped hdc; HDC in next hdc*; repeat from * to * two more times; HDC in remaining 16 hdc; join to beginning of round.

Round 3: CSHDC in first stitch, HDC in next 15 stitches; loosely chain 16 and skip the remaining 16 hdc; join to beginning of round.

Round 4: CSHDC in first stitch; *FPDC around next 4 fpdc, HDC in next hdc*; repeat from * to * two more times; HDC in each of the 16 chains; join to beginning of round.

Continue to Leg.

Leg:

Round 1: CSHDC in first stitch, HDC in each remaining stitch; join to beginning of round.

Round 2: CSHDC in first stitch; *skip next 2 hdc, work FPDC around stitch one row below the next 2 hdc, working in front of FPDC just made, work FPDC around stitch one row below each skipped hdc; HDC in next hdc*; repeat from * to * two more times; HDC in next hdc; repeat from * to * three times for remaining 15 hdc; join to beginning of round.

Round 3: CSHDC in first stitch, HDC in each remaining stitch; join to beginning of round.

Round 4: CSHDC in first stitch; *FPDC around next 4 fpdc, HDC in next hdc*; repeat from * to * two more times; HDC in next hdc; repeat from * to * three times for remaining 15 hdc; join to beginning of round.

Repeat rounds 1-4 three more times. Fasten off.

Continue to Heel.

Heel:

With the back of the sock facing you, join yarn in top of the 9th stitch of the skipped stitches at the back of the foot.

Round 1: CSHDC in the same stitch, HDC in each stitch until the last stitch before the corner gap; HDC3tog with last stitch before the gap, a spot in the gap, and the first chain from the foundation ch of the back part of the leg; place a maker in this stitch; HDC in each ch until the ch before the next gap; HDC3tog with the last ch, a spot in the gap, and the first hdc of the back of the foot; place a marker in this stitch; HDC in the remaining hdc; join to first stitch of round (30 stitches).

Round 2: CSHDC in first stitch; HDC in each hdc until one stitch before the marker; HDC3tog and move marker to this stitch; HDC in each hdc until one stitch before the next marker, HDC3Tog and move marker to this stitch; HDC in the remaining hdc; join to first stitch of the round.

Repeat round 2 until 18 stitches remain. Join to beginning of next round and fasten off leaving a long tail to sew the seam.

Continue to Finishing.

Finishing:

Using tail and tapestry/yarn needle, seam heel closed and weave in all loose ends!
