Cowgirl Slipper Socks
Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2006: “Buffalo yarn is the ultimate in luxurious warmth. In fact, buffalo fiber offers such excellent insulation that a herd of buffalo in a snowstorm looks like a group of white rocks - the animals’ coats hold in their body heat. The yarn seems to expand as you knit it, producing a lush, velvety texture. For these slipper socks, Ann Budd modified the traditional feather-and-fan pattern to make a short wavy lace cuff.”
Finished Size: 8” foot circumference and 8.¾” long from back of heel to tip of toe. To fit a woman’s size medium.

Note from Interweave Knits, Winter 2006: “To make the socks larger or smaller, use needles one or two sizes larger or smaller and lengthen or shorten the foot as necessary.”
