Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best yarn for crochet slipper socks?

A blend of wool and acrylic/nylon is best for knitting or crocheting socks. The wool will wick moisture away from the skin, and the acrylic/nylon will give your crocheted socks added durability. It’s also essential to use durable, soft yarn with a bit of stretch.

How can I resize these slipper socks?

To alter the size of this sock, add or decrease rows of SC in the foot section. Twelve rows of SC work well for a size 6–8, but you can add or decrease rows of SC until the foot section of the sock hits where the instep of your foot meets the ankle. 
If you want a looser ankle, don’t decrease in row 16. Instead, replace row 16 with a row of single crochets. Continue as written in rows 17–19.

Is blocking necessary for crocheted slipper socks?

Blocking can help even out stitches and improve the overall shape of the sock. While not always necessary, it can make a difference in the finished appearance.
