Seussian Slipper Socks

20090428 - finished Seussian Slipper Socks When I was 17 my mom made crocheted bunny slippers for me. I love them, and they are starting to be a bit warn thru like any sock will after long use. I’ve gone thru many boxes of pattern books with her recently and we couldn’t find the pattern for the slippers anywhere. And I’ve never made any crochet socks at all, so I started searching for some basic sock patterns. WIth that bit of research, and some bulky alpaca-blend yarn that I thought would be nice for slippers (only one skein, from the sale bin. I weighed it and split it into two balls. One for each sock.), I started cobbling together a pattern. Here’s the result.

Yarn: 1 skein of chunky alpaca blend (dusty grey-blue), and 2 skeins of regular Lion Wool (black) (which will be worked two strands together to match the bulk of the chunky yarn).
Hook: H/8/5.00 mm
Note: This is worked in a spiral, do NOT sl st the end of a row to the beg. Use a st marked hooked into the first st of ea row as you go to help keep track.

Row 3: [sc in next st] 5xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 10xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 5xs (24 sts)
Row 4: [sc in next st] 4xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 8xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 4xs (20 sts)
Row 5: [sc in next st] 3xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 6xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 3xs (16 sts)
Row 6: [sc in next st] 2xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 4xs, [sc2tog across next 2 sts] twice, [sc in next st] 2xs (12 sts)

Finish: When you cut your yarn, leave a 12″ tail. Push that tail thru the whole in the heel. Turn sock inside-out. Thread yarn onto a yarn needle, and sew up the hole in the heel.
