Seven Days of Scarfie Free Pattern #6
Today’s free crochet pattern may be my absolute favorite of the 2018 Seven Days of Scarfie Pattern Collection! The things I love to crochet the most are the projects that I know will get used the most, and I am wearing these Wintermint Slipper Socks as we “speak” ;) This pattern uses the rest of the skein that you used to make the Wintermint Ear Warmer and incorporates the same beautiful texture. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern, and come back tomorrow for the seventh and final free pattern of the collection!

You’ll HAVE To Crochet More Than One Pair!
About a month ago, my sister came to visit (side note: I am the ONLY crafty one in my family) and she asked to look through my basket of crocheted things that I’ve designed and haven’t used. She likes to “shop” my stuff. She came across these slipper socks and immediately claimed them! I had to tell her that I still needed them, but that she could have them after I got the pattern published. Up until yesterday I fully intended to save them for her, but then my feet got cold - ha! So now I’ll be making another pair for her because I’ve officially claimed these ;)
This pattern is super simple to customize in size, and I provide row counts for Small, Medium and Large sizes below. But really you can add or subtract as many rows as you need to make them fit!
Wintermint Slipper Socks - Free One Skein Scarfie Crochet Pattern in 3 Sizes
Lion Brand Scarfie yarn (‘Mint/Silver’ pictured) or approx. 218 yards of a category 4 yarn. If you substitute yarn please check your gauge!
4.5mm crochet hook - I love Clover Amour or check out these adorable custom polymer clay hooks!
Abbreviations (written in U.S. terms):
sl st: slip stitch
BLO: back loop only
SC: single crochet
HDC: half double crochet
7 sts x 5 rows = 2” square in HDC
Length (toe to heel)
The chain stitches at the beginning of each row/round do not count as a stitch.
The last stitch of each round is attached to the first stitch of the round with a slip stitch
I used a fairly tight tension for this project, please check your gauge so the slippers fit properly.
Please be cautious wearing these on hard floors! They are slippery. I added puffy fabric paint to the bottom of mine to reduce the slip.
Instructions (Make 2)
Start with a magic circle
Round 1: ch 1, work 10 HDC into the magic circle, pull tight (10)
Round 2: ch 1, 2 HDC in each st around (20)
Round 3: ch 1, *2 HDC, HDC, repeat from * around (30)
Round 4: ch 1, *HDC in the first st, HDC in the 3rd loop of the next st, repeat from * around (30)
Round 5: ch 1, *HDC in the 3rd loop of the first st, HDC in the next st, repeat from * around (30)
(Small) Round 6-18: ch 1, HDC around (30)
(Medium) Round 6-20: ch 1, HDC around (30)
(Large) Round 6-22: ch 1, HDC around (30)
**This section of the slipper should cover the top of your foot up to your ankle (it is ok if it has to stretch just a little bit to do so). You will now start working back and forth in rows.**
Row 1-7: ch 1, HDC in 20 sts (20) Turn.
Row 8: ch 1, HDC2Tog across (10). Turn.
Row 9: ch 1, HDC2Tog across (5). Turn
Row 10: ch 1, HDC2Tog, HDC, HDC2Tog (3). Turn
**Do not cut your yarn. You will now be working in rounds around the ankle portion of the slipper**
Round 1: ch 1, SC evenly around the ankle opening so that you have 44 stitches around (44)
Round 2: ch 1, *HDC2Tog, HDC in next 2 sts, repeat from * around until you reach the last two sts of the round, HDC2Tog in the last two sts (32).
Round 3: ch 1, HDC in the 3rd loop of the first st, HDC in the next st, repeat from * around (32)
Round 4: ch 1, HDC in the first st, HDC in the 3rd loop of the next st, repeat from * around (32)
Round 5: ch 1, HDC in the 3rd loop of the first st, HDC in the next st, repeat from * around (32)
Ribbed Cuff (see photo below)
Starting where you ended Round 5, ch 23 sts. SC in the second chain from the hook, SC in the remaining 21 ch stitches. When you get back to the beginning of the ch, sl st into the first st of Round 5. This creates your first row of ribbing.
Row 2: sl st into the next st of Round 5, ch 1, SC in BLO across to create your next row of ribbing. Turn. (22)
Row 3: ch 1, SC in BLO across. Sl st into the next open st of Round 5. (22)
Row 4-32: Repeat Rows 2 (on even rows) and 3 (on odd rows) until you have gone around the entire top of the sock.
After completing Row 32: Working through the BLO of Row 32 and the FLO of your starting chain, sl st across to seam the ribbing together. Tie off yarn and weave in ends.
