Introduction: Cottage Slipper Socks

Picture of Cottage Slipper Socks

These looked so warm and inviting on the Wool-Ease Thick and Quick package that I had to make them. They're Lion Brand's Cottage Slipper Socks and I used the color Pine. They work up super fast with a size N/9 hook and are super warm as well! However, I found my feet/legs to be smaller than what the pattern called for even though I am a size 9-11 for socks. I checked my gauge as well and they're a little loose, but nothing to keep me from wearing them! I made my second sock slightly smaller and it's still a little loose but it's all good. I found that I used every piece of yarn out of the two balls required, so my advice is to buy three, because I really cut it close and even omitted a few rows so I would not have to run out and buy more yarn. Unless you want your socks a little shorter, buy two balls, because the third one you would still be using very little of. Another suggestion is to make the cuff smaller, because that was the loosest part of the socks. I'd suggest about 9 inches or less instead of 12 because the ribbed cuff is EXTREMELY stretchy. But this pattern was great! My feet are always cold and I need slippers constantly, and I always rip them and need new ones. This project was cheap and fast, so my bare feet were covered immediately!

Thanks for sharing this pattern and insights on fit. That is the part that always becomes a bit difficult as no matter how small I get, the calf is still quite a bit larger. Probably from bicycling so much..g Either way..I love the color and they look so comfortable. My feet get cold but wearing shoes constantly they get too warm and bare feet is just too chilly in the cooler months. This will be a great item to have fun with.

Do you by chance have the pattern for this still???

I think they're really awesome, but the website was not opening up.

I am stuck on the "Next (dec) rnd". I understand the first part of this step, up until the 2nd sentence which says, "Cont in sc rep dec rnd every other rnd once more dec 1 sc before each marker - 16 sts rem. Work even in sc until 12" from beg, ending at beg of rnd." I honestly don't understand what it's saying and would love some help deciphering it's meaning. If you've used this pattern or think you can help me, please email me at scarmich2001@hotmail.com with any feedback you may have. I hate being stuck, especially so early on in a project. Thank you!!

So like do you work? or do you just crochet all day? Hee Hee. How do you find the time? Nice Work! I want a pair!

Hahaha, I wish I really did crochet all day. But a lot of times I carry my projects with me to college and work, because I'm in those two places about 90% of the time!
