This pattern is available in a kit. The kit includes two soles with fleece and two basic patterns, one knit and one crochet.

Note from designer: When creating the gusset, I used a crochet hook to create the cast-on edge. Specifically, I used the Bind-Off Cast On from Montse Stanley’s Knitter’s Handbook. This is my preferred cast-on especially with socks since it produces no wear on the yarn and makes a nice, clean edge. To cast-on in this fashion, you cast-on to the left needle, then turn. However, if you prefer to cast-on to the right needle, you will turn first and you won’t be able to slip the first stitch as stated in the instructions.

Further note from the designer: For this design, I was specifically commissioned to make a worked-flat version of this slipper sock. For those of you familiar with working in-the-round, it should be very easy to adapt. For best results, work with a tight tension.
