The Snowball Slipper Socks use the lemon peel stitch and Scarfie yarn to make a pair of slipper socks perfect for any climate. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
Warm Snowball Slipper Socks Perfect for Any Season
The thing I love best about including slipper socks is that they are easily adjustable in size, and they are a really pretty AND practical piece. Even someone living in a warmer climate needs slippers!
I have designed three pairs of slipper socks using Scarfie yarn - and they are always one of my absolute favorites! Last year my sister snagged the Wintermint Slipper Socks from me before I got a chance to enjoy them, so this year I’m keeping the Snowball Slipper Socks for myself.

Yarn Substitutes for Scarfie Yarn
Ever since I started Seven Days of Scarfie, I’ve been asked a lot about yarn that can be substituted when Scarfie isn’t available or wool is an issue. The good news is that you can substitute almost any worsted weight yarn or light Category 5 yarn for this pattern! Since scarves aren’t particularly fitted you don’t even need to worry about gauge. Just add or subtract length as desired if your yarn is a different weight category. If you are looking for yarn similar to Lion Brand Scarfie yarn, check out my list of recommended substitutes here.
