Looking to keep your feet toasty warm? Whip up some of these crochet slipper socks using bulky yarn for a quick project!
Design Story and Inspiration for these Slipper Crochet Socks
This crochet pattern was designed for the Holiday Maker’s Challenge, an annual event where makers come together to encourage and support each other in our holiday gift-making efforts.
The goal of this challenge is to craft as many gifts as possible that fulfill these criteria:
1. Easy, using basic stitches
2. Well-received by gift recipients
3. Use up stash yarn
4. Don’t take too much time
So I wanted to make a cozy crochet sock pattern or a slipper sock, so I decided these would definitely fit the bill. I love wearing these!!
Yarn Options for these Easy Crochet Slipper Socks
These slipper socks are made with bulky yarn (chunky yarn) which is a weight category #5. The yarn I used is Lion Brand Yarn Color Made Easy, which is one of my favorite bulky yarns!
This yarn is an acrylic yarn, but you could definitely use wool if you like. I love that I can easily throw these in the wash.
You can use any bulky yarn in your stash that gets gauge. This is an easy project that will whip up in no time (I made these on a road trip!) and you will love how they fit.

Slipper Pattern Details
This pattern is worked mostly in double crochet stitches, with the exception of the ribbing at the top, which is single crochet. You will work in rounds starting at the toe for the front of the foot, then in rows to the heel.
There are three sizes for this pattern depending upon the foot length of the wearer. They do have a lot of give to them, though, so they fit a variety of sizes.
Easy Bulky Crochet Slipper Socks
What You’ll Need
Yarn: Lion Brand Color Made Easy or other Bulky Weight Yarn (Size 5).
Hook: US Size I (5.5mm)
Notions: Yarn needle, scissors, sock stop (optional, but recommended for walking on slippery areas)
Gauge: 12 sts and 8 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in dc
To fit Ladies size 4-6 (7-9, 10-12)
Foot circumference 7 (8, 8)”
Foot length 8 (9, 10)”
For a neater look, use a chainless dc instead of the ch 3 at the beginning of rows. You would just substitute a chainless dc in place of every ch 3.
Ch 3 or chainless dc counts as stitch.
Slippers will have some “give” to them and will fit a range of sizes as shown above.
