Water slides are one of my family’s favorite activities, whether outdoors in the summer, or at an indoor water park get-away in the dead of winter. The fun slipping, sliding, and twists and turns are the inspiration for these socks.

The Slip Slide Splash socks are a fun way to combine 2 of your favorite colors or use up scraps that might not have enough yardage for a full pair of socks. These socks feature a fun slipped st motif, and through switching colors every round you create water slides that race across your foot. The design also features a solid toe, heel and cuff in the MC to highlight the slide motif.

Grab 2 colors and slip, slide, SPLASH into an addicting pair of socks to knit, and a striking pair of socks to wear.

To fit foot circumference of 6 (7, 8, 9)(10, 11)” 15 (17.5, 20, 22.5)(25, 27.5) cm
Foot circumference: 5 (6, 7, 8)(9, 10)“ 12.5 (15, 17.5, 20)(22.5, 25) cm

Fingering-weight sock yarn (approximately 400 yards per 100 grams) of 2 colors, with MC needing more yardage (60-70g for larger sizes).

If you swap the MC and CC for the 2nd sock, you will use 50% of each color.

Most sizes can be knit with a 100g of fingering weight yarn. The largest sizes, especially if knit for long feet, may require additional yardage.


  • I recommend pairing a solid or tonal colorway with a highly contrasting variegated, tonal, self-striping, or gradient!
  • For highest contrast, pick 2 colorways with no matching colors.
  • Swap the MC and CC on the 2nd sock as a fun way of mixing things up, and creating distinctly unique yet matching socks!

HEEL: Spacious OMG heel

SKILLS USED: Increases, decreases, Judy’s Magic Cast-on, Alternating colors/switching yarns.
