These slipper socks are knit from the cuff down using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together for a quick and cozy knit. You can use magic loop, 2 circulars, or double pointed needles; knitter’s choice! Alternating bands of knits and purls create a scrunchy fabric that traps warm air at the ankle.

These slipper socks are sized for women, or a small man’s foot, based on the available yardage in Knit Circus’ Ringmaster Panoramic Gradient 50g cakes. Four cakes are needed to achieve 2 slipper socks with matching gradient shading, since the yarn is held double.

These slipper socks would also be cute knit with two different yarns held together for a marl effect. Your imagination is the limit!

If you’d like to knit a single stranded version of these socks, see my Concentric Bed Socks pattern (new December 2018). They feature a contrast heel and toe.

If you’d like to knit both the Bed Socks and the Slipper Socks, you can purchase both patterns together for $10. If you’ve already purchased one, the price for the other will be adjusted automatically.

Thanks to Knit Circus Yarns for the inspiring yarn! And thanks to tech editor Amanda Woodruff, and test knitters Jacqueline Lydston, Denise Delagarza, and Ann Berg.
