Having a tile floor at home and start wearing socks the moment temperature inside falls below 23 C (72-73 F)? Then you are like me. I’m naturally a warmth-loving creature, and don’t like cold months of the year. But whether we like it or not winter comes no matter what. I also don’t like wearing flip flops at home without any obvious reason, hence I tend to wear lots of socks, sometimes even two pairs at once. If it sounds familiar to you, then this crochet slipper socks will become real savers for you, guaranteed.

Slipper socks pattern:
Crochet toe and foot

Round 2: 2 hdc into each st from previous round, join – 24 sts. Do not cut the yarn, always carry the yarn inside your sock.
Round 3: Join new color B, ch 2, hdc into the base of the ch2, skip next st, [2 hdc in next st, skip next st], join – 11 times.
Round 4: With color A, ch 2, hdc into the base of the ch2, [2 hdc in between of 2 hdc of previous round], join. (24 sts)
Repeat Rounds 3 and 4 for six more times and then repeat Round 3 one more time. Fasten off.
Start working heel back and forth in rows
Row 1: To make ankle opening, leave 4 sts in the center and join color A. Ch2 (count as 1 hdc), hdc in the next 19 sts, ch2, turn.
Row 2-11: Ch2 (count as 1 hdc), hdc in the next 19 sts, ch2, turn.
To close the end of slipper, turn it inside out and sl st down. Cut the yarn. Now turn slipper the right side out. Join color B, ch 1, and sc around entire slipper and join with sl st at the end. If you think that ankle opening is to wide, make 2 decreases in the corners by crocheting 2 stitches together (sc2tog).
Weave in all ends and make the second one.
