Easy Slipper Socks
"These quick & easy cosy crochet socks are made out of aran weight yarn, they’ll be comfy in wellies but probably not your posh shoes. Splodge some of that sticky stuff on the soles so that they turn into non-slip slipper socks. Easy to adjust to different sizes, a few choices are given in the pattern. Made from the toe up. Try contrast colours on the toe and heel! It might be best to go for a yarn that isn't 100% wool as they will wear faster. This pattern is written in UK terms. See below for US equivalents."

Place stitch marker in first st, this will guide you when it comes to the ankle. Continue to work htr sts around until place where the heel will start (you will need to measure your foot for accuracy.
From the first round of htr sts to the heel start I measured 12cm for Medium
Begin at the sock side (align with toe and stitch marker) 14, 16, 18 htr, ch 14 (16, 18), miss 14 (16, 18) sts and rejoin with a htr in next st, continue htr st until desired length (from this point mine measure 16cm including contrast colours). Slip stitch in final st and fasten off.
