The Asteria slipper-socks are perfect for chilly mornings and windy winter evenings. Slightly over-sized and slouchy, they feature a speckled pattern that resembles a clear winter sky full of stars. Knit with three colors of Yarn On The House’s super soft Big Sister DK, you can make these socks in endless combinations. The name ‘Asteria’ comes from Greek Mythology, meaning “’of the stars”.
