I finished these slipper socks for my grandma a couple weeks ago. The socks aren’t anything fancy, but I though the color combinations turned out nice (if I do say so myself ) . It’s actually a really simple sock, made to my mom’s ‘sock formula’ and done on a US size 9 needles (5.5 mm) and 2 strands of a dk/worsted yarn held together so they went SUPER fast. These are my grandma’s favorite slippers - I think my mom has made her at least 5 pairs and she’s always asking for more
Due to a bunch of requests for the pattern my mom and I finally put it up here: http://www.beartoes.com/patterns/tropicalpunch.html . Though since it’s just basic sock instructions it can hardly be called a ‘pattern’ more like a sock recipe but because of the simplicity I think it would make a great learning sock.
