CHUNKY CROCHET SLIPPER SOCKS DESIGN PROCESS

You might have noticed that based on the last couple of patterns, I am cold blooded individual. Not in a nasty way, I just really suffer with cold hands and feet! If you remember I designed The Mountain Crochet Leg Warmers not so long ago. I love wearing my legwarmers but they do not really keep my feet warm. So, today I am going all out and bringing you a free pattern for my chunky crochet slipper socks! I love these socks!

YARN I USED FOR CHUNKY CROCHET SLIPPER SOCKS

I used Drops Snow yarn to make my chunky crochet slipper socks. It is 100% wool yarn so I can’t even begin to tell you how warm these socks are. I combined the leg warmer part and carried on working up the leg until the socks reached my knees! That’s roughly about where my warm blood flows to…lol

Drops Snow is a super chunky weight yarn so these easy knee high crochet socks will work up in no time. They are more of a round-the-house slipper sock but I am very tempted to squeeze them into my wellies when we go out!

I have always been slightly scared of making crochet socks though. All this talk about heel flaps and afterthought heel is making my brains go blah.. That’s why I have created the easiest crochet sock pattern that is perfect for a beginner crocheter. I personally think, this easy crochet heel is a good place to start with crochet sock making. To help you along with your first pair of socks, I have also included a photo tutorial as one photo (or 8 in this case) speaks louder than 1000 words!

  • The top cuff is worked afterwards in rows of sc blog at 90 degree angle to the sock

CHUNKY CROCHET SLIPPER SOCKS SIZE ADJUSTMENTS

  • The toe part is worked in rounds creating a circle. The number of rounds of the circle determines the finished width of the foot part of the sock. For smaller socks work less rounds of the beginning circle, for a larger sock add a couple of rounds for wider foot.
  • The length of the sock from toe to heel flap can easily be adjusted by working more/less rounds of the foot part
