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.
