Notes

My brothers wife asked for a pair of warm knee high slipper socks, as she couldn’t find anything that would fit her calf properly and go up to her knees. So with her calf, leg, ankle, and foot measurements, I am improvising something for her. I hope they turn out.

I bought 5 skeins of yarn, not knowing how much it’s going to actually take, and as I am primarily a crocheter, I have a tendency to get at least 1 skein more that I think I might need like I do when I crochet.

They’re turning out better than I hoped. The 2x2 ribbing is super stretchy and look like they would fit a wide range of calf/ankle sizes, especially for plus sizes. The foot length is pretty easy to customize for different sizes too. I was given the suggestion by a knitter friend that I should write up and sell the pattern.

The socks actually took approx. 1-2/3 skeins per sock. I did write a rough draft for a pattern and my friend is testing it for me. Marked completed on Feb 3rd, the knitting is done, just have some finishing touches to do.

Slipper socks are completed and mailed to my sister in-law as of yesterday, 03-01-17! Waiting to hear from her and hoping that they fit. For the no-slip soles, I used denim patching material with fabric glue and hand sewed all around the edges, then I used puff paint on the material for the “no-slip dots”.

A very rough draft pattern has been written up and sent of to a friend of mine for testing!
