When it comes to knitting socks, there are countless awesome patterns around, as well as countless stunning sock yarns to choose from! Socks might seem a little intimidating to beginners, but in reality they’re quite easy to do once you’ve got some practice. They’re also completely addictive! After a while, however, we do like to switch things up and try different variations of our favourite things to knit. That’s how we ended up loving the process of knitting slipper socks so much! Many slipper socks are made the same way that classic socks are but with thicker, warmer wool and, since you don’t usually wear your slippers in public, the designs are colour choices are often a little wilder!
Check out these 15 awesome slipper sock patterns that you’ll have a total blast making and you, your family, and your friends will adore wearing.
1. Chunky toe-up slipper socks
Do you love walking around the house in your socks in cold weather but putting on slippers over your socks annoys you because it feels like you’re wearing shoes? At the same time, not all thinly made store bought socks are quite warm enough to really keep your feet warm. That’s why this pattern from E-Patterns Central is the perfect happy medium! They’re made from a thick enough chunky wool that they’re extra cushy and warm, but they’re still socks that let your feet feel free and cozy.
2. Two-needle ankle slippers
Perhaps you love the feeling of slipper socks but you don’t really feel like you need extra warmth up your shin and calf because it’ll make you feel a little bit too hot? Then make yourself an adorable pair of slippers that stop right at the ankle! Not An Artist guides you through the process of knitting these mid-weight, super toasty little foot slippers that won’t feel stifling even though they’ll keep you nice and warm.
3. Macarons slipper boots
Perhaps you started browsing this list with the hopes of finding something a little bit more outrageous and colourful than the average pair of socks usually is, maybe even with a little bit of embellishment and fun texture? Then you’re going to love these adorably bright slipper boots from Knitty! They’re a great opportunity to use up some stash when it comes to the coloured details near the top and down the front and they’re also the kind of sock that’s going to keep you warm no matter how frigid the weather gets.
4. Cabled cozies
Did you love the idea of knitting little ankle height slipper socks because you think those would be the most comfortable but you’d rather have something with a little more patterning and visual detail than the ones we showed you before? Then you must check out these adorable cabled socks from Galler Yarns! They even have a top piece that gives off the illusion that you’re wearing a pair of socks under your slippers and we think it’s adorable.
