Description

What better way to use a fun, quirky hand dyed colorway than for these seasonal slipper socks in three teen/adult sizes (S/M/L). With a pretty openwork top and buttoned cuff, these offer a nice view from any angle. Whether making these to keep or to gift away, this is a fun, fun knitting project and so portable; they work up in no time for last minute stocking stuffers, teacher’s gifts, or a thoughtful contribution to a “giving tree” project. Consider knitting them in a natural shade of cozy-warm wool for wearing once the holiday season has passed.
