I wanted a super simple project. Something that worked up quickly and yet was a functional, wearable piece. After searching YouTube for patterns, going through a few, I found the one I wanted to try. Benat Quickie Slippers, which you can find by clicking here.
A couple of important notes about this pattern
You’ll need a size 8/L hook
A chunky yarn (I just used a worsted weight but used two skeins in one to make a chunkier yarn)
You’ll want to measure the sock against your foot as you go. And I recommend making it a bit snug to your foot as, at least in my case, the slipper sock will stretch a bit.
I also recommend not using white yarn, as it’ll show dirt quickly. ha! I used that color because it was the only one I had two skeins of the same color. I really need to build up my yarn stash, Y’all!
I would say this pattern took me about 2 or fewer hours to complete. I didn’t keep close track of the time, so it might be quicker or slower for you. It also depends on how quickly you crochet.
I’ve worked a couple of other slipper patterns and this one is my favorite. It whips up fast and wasn’t confusing. If you are a bit confused by the written pattern, you can find the video tutorial here.
I would say it’s an easy pattern, a newbie friendly slipper to whip up on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I really enjoyed it and plan to make it in other colors. Although it’s hot as the dickens in Texas, it’ll be fall before I know it, and you can never have too many cozy socks to wear when the leaves start falling from the trees, and the crisp air blows in.
If you try this pattern, do let me know! Tag me on Instagram with #sincerelynell and I’d love to check out your socks!
