The Wintermint Slipper Socks crochet pattern uses less than one skein of yarn to create a pair of cozy warm slippers. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
You'll Want to Crochet More than One Pair of the Wintermint Slipper Socks
About a month ago, my sister came to visit (side note: I am the ONLY crafty one in my family) and she asked to look through my basket of crocheted things that I’ve designed and haven’t used. She likes to “shop” my stuff. She came across these slipper socks and immediately claimed them! I had to tell her that I still needed them, but that she could have them after I got the pattern published. Up until yesterday I fully intended to save them for her, but then my feet got cold - ha! So now I’ll be making another pair for her because I’ve officially claimed these.

- The chain stitches at the beginning of each row/round do not count as a stitch.
- The last stitch of each round is attached to the first stitch of the round with a slip stitch
- I used a fairly tight tension for this project, please check your gauge so the slippers fit properly.
- Please be cautious wearing these on hard floors! They are slippery. I added puffy fabric paint to the bottom of mine to reduce the slip.

Round 1: ch 1, SC evenly around the ankle opening so that you have 44 stitches around (44)
Round 2: ch 1, *HDC2Tog, HDC in next 2 sts, repeat from * around until you reach the last two sts of the round, HDC2Tog in the last two sts (32).

Starting where you ended Round 5, ch 23 sts. SC in the second chain from the hook, SC in the remaining 21 ch stitches. When you get back to the beginning of the ch, sl st into the first st of Round 5. This creates your first row of ribbing.
Row 2: sl st into the next st of Round 5, ch 1, SC in BLO across to create your next row of ribbing. Turn. (22)
Row 3: ch 1, SC in BLO across. Sl st into the next open st of Round 5. (22)
