“For snuggly toes.”
Slipper socks are one of our favorite quick knits. In a bulky yarn, they’re even quicker—and cozier! The Chunky Slipper Socks, a free pattern reminiscent of our Turkish Bed Socks, have a few added, clever details. They have a nice, neat heel, a pretty slip-stitch edging around the ankle, and oodles of warmth!

We knit this cozy pair of Chunky Slipper Socks using Shibui Murmur. An irresistible, bulky-weight blend of super baby alpaca and merino wool, Murmur has what Shibui calls a “velvety, I-can’t-stop-touching-it” softness. Its chainette-style strand gives it a cloud-like loft and airy bounce that’s sure to put a spring in your step!

Choose width; work to any length. Medium adult (wide adult); approx. 8 (91⁄4)“/20 (23.5)cm around foot. Instructions given for medium width; wide width in parentheses ( ).

2 skeins Shibui Murmur (65 yds/60m); Or approx. 125 yds/114m of an equivalent chunky-weight yarn, for up to 11 (10)“/28 (25)cm foot length. Note: To adjust length, add or subtract approx. 12 (14) yds/m per knitted 1”/2.5cm, per pair.
