To make these beautiful crochet slipper socks you will need:
100 gr skein of worsted weight cotton blend yarn Alize cotton gold (55% cotton, 45& acrylic) - 1 skein
5 mm/ H-8 crochet hook
An embroidery needle to sew in the ends.
Cotton slipper socks are ideal for mild climates - they protect your feet from rough ground and cool tiled floors all while not being overly warm. Also if you happen to have cold feet (literally) on a hot summer day, that’s the socks for you!
Sc - single crochet
Esc - extended single crochet*
Dc - double crochet
FPDC - front post double crochet
*Insert the hook into the stitch, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on the hook (like chain one), yarn over, pull trough 2 loops on the hook.
Start by chaining 6+1. Sc into the first chain, sc into each chain afterwards till you reach the last chain. Work 3 sc into the last chain, turn you work and work sc into the same chan all the way to the first stitch - work 2 sc into the last/first chain - you will have a sc on the both sides of the starting chain. Slip st into the first sc.
Chain 1, work 2 sc into the same stitch, sc into next 4 sts, 2sc into next st, sc in the stitch that follows, 2 sc into the first stitch on the other side, 4 sc into next sts, 2 sc into 5th set, 1 sc into the last st, slip stitch into the 1st st.
Chain one, 2 sc into the same st, sc into next 7 sts, 2 sc into 8th st, sc into next st, 2 sc into the 1st st on the other side, sc into next 7 sts, 2 sc into the 8th sts, sc into next st, slip st into the first st.
Chain one, 2 esc into the st, 9 esc into next sts, 2 esc into 10th st, 1 esc into next st, 2 esc into 1st st, 9 esc into next sts, 2 esc into 10th st, 1 esc into the last st of the row. Slip st into the 1st st.
Chain 1, Esc int the same st, esc across the row on both sides + 1 esc into the same st as the chain.
Chain 2, dc into the same st, dc across + 1 dc into the same st as the chain. This will be the foundation row for the alpine stitch.
Chain 2, dc into the same st. *FPDC into next st. Dc into next stitch*. Repeat ** 4 times. FPDC into the next st. Double crochet the rest + 1 dc into the same st as the chain.
Chain 2, FPDC into the dc of the row below. *DC into next stitch, FPDC into next st* Repeat 4 times, Dc into next st. ** Double crochet the rest + 1 dc into the same st as the chain.
**The Alpine stitch consists of FPDC and Dc: work FPDC into DC of the previous row and DC into FPDC of the previous row.
Alpine stitch across 11 sts, double crochet the rest + 1 dc into the same st as the chain.
From R. 12 we will work half of the circle - only the soles of the slippers. To do that, we will chain 2, turn our sock to work in the other direction (towards the dc, not the alpine stitch part) and put 1 dc into the same st and dc into next 10 stitches.
Dc into dc of the previous row. Tie the knot and cut the thread.
To make the heel for our slippers we need to keep in mind the total of the sts in the sole part that we just made - that would be 18. Each row from the starting chain will add 1 stitch to the count of each side.
Chain 5+1, sc into 4 chs, 3 sc into the 5th ch, 4 sc into next sts. Chain 1, sc across, 3 sc into the top st, sc across. Work next rows in esc, add rows till you reach the total of 18 sts+1.
Joining the main part and the heel.
Turn your main part inside out (the alpine stitch has the right and the wrong side), insert the hook into the 1st stitch of the main part, pull up the loop from the last st of the heel, sc, turn your work and slip stitch into the same 1 st, then slip stitch into all the stitches. Chain one, turn your inside out again (to work on the right side) sc aross the joined slipper sock. To make the sock fit tighter, sc the back side of the slipper sock decreasing on every second st.
That’s it, you can make the second one! (In case you want to, no-one can make you crochet another sock in case you’re fed up with it and think that one is more than enough :)
