Not only are they easy to make, but they’re also cute and stylish! You can even adapt it to work for any size!

Inspiration

One of my favorite accessories to wear has to be socks. My feet always get super cold, so fuzzy and warm socks are essential for me. Just ask my husband, he can totally attest to how cold my feet can get. Despite that, I’ve always shied away from making crochet socks. The thought of having to figure out how to do the heel section and feet calculations intimidated me, which meant I didn’t think it was worth trying. So my biggest inspiration behind this was to create a beginner friendly sock pattern that anyone could make. I think you’re going to love it!

Construction

This crochet slipper sock pattern is quick and easy to make. Each slipper sock is made in one piece, so you don’t have to do complicated seaming. You start with the toe, move onto the body, and then create the heel before you finish off with the ankle. The ankle has cute bobble accents, which are super cute! Don’t want the bobbles? No problem! Just replace all of the bobble stitches with half double crochet and you can have plain looking ones. If you’re feeling nervous about making these still, I’ve got you covered! I’ve made a step by step video tutorial on my Youtube channel that walks you through every part of this pattern. So if this is your first time making these socks, you don’t have to worry about any confusion. You’ve got this! Click here to watch the Youtube video tutorial!

The pattern comes in 3 different sizes, listed below, that you can easily adapt to your own foot. This blog post has the size small pattern. All of the sizes that are available can be found in the premium pdf in my shop or the 12 Days of Christmas Gifts pattern bundle (12 patterns for just $1 each)!

The Yarn

Coziness is very important to me when it comes to socks. Well, I found the perfect cozy yarn to make these socks! It’s Lion Brand Color Made Easy, a soft bulky weight yarn that makes the coziest socks. This yarn makes the socks work up really quickly, but it isn’t the same thickness as a typical bulky weight yarn. So if you use an alternative yarn for these, like Bernat Softee, then you might need to use a smaller hook size to meet the gauge. Since this pattern is so easily adaptable though, then you can make it work with any bulky yarn.

Crochet Bobble Slipper Sock Pattern Size Small: (Make 2)

All sizes of the pattern are available in the premium ad free pdf in my Etsy store.

Toe:

Starting with MC. You’ll be working in continuous rounds, so be sure to mark the first st of the round with a stitch marker.

Rnd 1: Sc 5 in magic circle [5]

Rnd 2: ch 1, Sc 2 in the next 4 sc, join with sl st to ch 1 at beginning of round [8]

Rnd 3: ch 1, *Sc 1, Sc 2 in next st, repeat from * 3 more times, join with sl st to ch 1 at beginning of round [12]

Rnd 4: ch 1, *Sc 2, Sc 2 in next st, repeat from * 3 more times, join with sl st to ch 1 at beginning of round [16]

Rnd 5: ch 1, *Sc 3, Sc 2 in next st, repeat from * 3 more times, join with sl st to ch 1 at beginning of round [20]

Size Small, begin working the body.

Body:

Switch to CC, and fasten off MC. Add an extra stitch in the last increase of the last round of the toe. This one stitch does not change the stitch count, since you’ll be having your ch 2 work off of this. See video for demonstration of how to do this.

Rnd 6-12: ch 2, hdc 20, join with sl st to ch 2 at beginning of round

If you would like your sock to be longer, do more rounds of hdc till your sock reaches the front of your heel. Once it reaches that, you’ll begin crocheting the heel portion.

Heel:

Switch back to MC, and drop CC (you’ll pick this up again once you finish the heel). You’ll now work back and forth in rows while you crochet the heel.

Row 1: ch 2, turn, hdc2tog, hdc 6, hdc2tog [8]

Row 2: ch 2, turn, hdc2tog, hdc 4, hdc2tog [6]

Row 3: ch 2, turn, hdc2tog, hdc 2, hdc2tog, [4]

You’ll now begin increasing back out.

Row 4: ch 2, turn, hdc 2 in first st, hdc 2, hdc 2 in last st [6]

Row 5:  ch 2, turn, hdc 2 in first st, hdc 4, hdc 2 in last st [8]

Row 6:  ch 2, turn, hdc 2 in first st, hdc 6, hdc 2 in last st, [10]

Fasten off and now seam the heel together by sewing up the side edges together on each side with a needle. See video tutorial for in depth instructions on how to do this.

Ankle:

Rnd 1: Pick up MC yarn again from where you left it to start the heel, ch 2, hdc 10, hdc 1 in spot where heel is seamed to main sock, hdc 10 along top of heel, hdc 1 in spot where heel is seamed to main sock, join with sl st to ch 2 at beginning of round [22]

Fasten off CC, and switch to MC

Rnd 2: Ch 2, turn, *hdc 1, bobble, repeat from * 10 more times, join with sl st to ch 2 at beginning of rnd [22]

Rnd 3: Ch 2, *hdc 3, hdc2tog, repeat from * 3 more times, hdc2tog, join with sl st to ch 2 at beginning of rnd [17]

Rnd 4: Ch 2, *hdc 1, bobble, repeat from * 7 more times, hdc 1, join with sl st to ch 2 at beginning of rnd [17]

Rnd 5: Ch 2, *hdc 2, hdc2tog, repeat from * 3 more times, hdc 1, join with sl st to ch 2 at beginning of rnd [13]

Fasten off and weave in ends.
