These quick little slipper socks are just the thing for chilly mornings when fall starts to set in. They are worked from the toe up with a reinforced heel and edging to keep them snug on your feet. With 4 sizes, no one is left out! These slippers could easily have a leather sole stitched to them for added traction.

Sizes: Extra Small (Small, Medium, Large) to fit a circumference of about 7” (7.5”, 8.5”, 9.75”)/18 (19, 21.5, 25) cm.

Notions: 1 stitch marker, sock blockers (optional) and a tapestry needle.

Techniques: Judy’s Magic Cast On, knitting in the round, basic increases and decreases, picking up stitches, and wrap and turn (short rows).
