New yarn is officially hitting shelves today at Michaels Craft Stores! Caron Chunky Cakes is a super bulky 6 weight yarn that comes in 16 color ways! I personally chose the Rainbow Jelly (for this project) and Plum Perfection (pictured below). You can purchase the yarn directly from Michaels retail stores or from Michaels.com.
You will only need one ball of Caron Chunky Cakes yarn to make these Slouchy Slipper Socks! The self-striping yarn perfectly created the color blocks in these socks. When I was done with the first sock, I landed right back on the orange color again and the color sequence started over which allowed me to create two matching socks.

– Tapestry Needle
Sizing: These Slipper Socks fit a women’s shoe size 6-8. I made them to fit my feet (size 6) but I didn’t account for the stretch of the yarn – and they will immediately stretch! So they are actually too big for me.
If you want to make them bigger there are several things you can do:
1. Continue to increase for one more round after Round 7. So it would look like: SC in first, SC in next 5, repeat around.
2. Continue to SC in the round after round 17 to make the length longer.
3. If you need the calf part larger, don’t decrease in the corner stitches as directed in rounds 29-31 OR add in stitches towards the top to make the top of the top of the sock larger.
Slouchy Slipper Sock Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 8 SC in ring, join to first SC, chain 1 (8 SC)
Round 2: 2 SC in first, SC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1 (12 SC)
Round 3: 2 SC in first, SC in next 2, repeat around, join, chain 1 (16 SC)
Round 4: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (16 SC)
Round 5: 2 SC in first, SC in next 3, repeat around, chain 1 (20 SC)
Round 6: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (20 SC)
Round 7: 2 SC in first, SC in next 4, repeat around, chain 1 (24 SC)
Round 8-17: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (24 SC)
Now we are going to work in rows to make the heel. If you want to make the slipper socks bigger, now is a good place to continue a few more rounds before starting on the heel.
ROW 18: SC in first 12, chain 1, turn (12 SC)
Row 19-23: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn
Row 24: SC in first 2, SC Decrease 4x, SC in last 2, chain 1, turn (8 SC)
Row 25: SC in first, SC Decrease 3x, SC in last, chain 1, turn (5 SC)
Row 26: SC Decrease, SC, SC Decrease, chain 1, turn (3 SC)
Row 27: SC Decrease (skip over middle stitch), chain 1, turn
Now go back into working in rounds
Round 28: SC in each stitch around making a total of 34 stitches (do the best you can on rough edges), join, chain 1 (34 SC)
Round 29-31: SC around making a SC Decrease in two corners, join, chain 1 (see photos)
Round 32-63 or desired length: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (28 SC)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
See the natural dip in the sock between the heal and the top? That is where you will want to make your SC Decrease.
