I’ve been anxious to get my hands on the new Red Heart O’Go yarn in color Christmas! Tis the season for starting on those holiday gifts! You can get at least 2 pairs of socks from each O’Go and I love this new colorway! The fun part this project is rolling up the sock to put in a paper baking cups to make them look like a cupcake. Perfect for gift giving! The paper cups I had only fit one sock so you will gift two cupcakes = one pair of socks.

Easy Sock Pattern: (fits size 5/6 with notes on how to make larger)
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 8-15: 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. You could also increase after Round 7 (SC in first, SC in next 5, repeat around, chain 1)
ROW 16: SC in first 12, chain 1, turn (12 SC)
Row 17-20: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn
Row 21: SC in first 2, SC Decrease 4x, SC in last 2, chain 1, turn (8 SC)
Row 22: SC in first, SC Decrease 3x, SC in last, chain 1, turn (5 SC)
Row 23: SC Decrease, SC, SC Decrease, chain 1, turn (3 SC)
Row 24: SC Decrease (skip over middle stitch), chain 1, turn
Now go back into working in rounds
Round 25: SC in each stitch around making a total of 32 stitches (do the best you can on rough edges), join, chain 1 (32 SC)
Round 26-27: SC around making a SC Decrease in two corners, join, chain 1 (see photos)
Round 28-34 or desired length: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1
Fasten off and weave in ends.
The great thing about O’Go yarn is that you can separate it so if you want your second sock to have the same color sequence as the first sock, you can separate your O’Go to start with the correct color. As you can see in my example, I started both socks with green and used the white portion to make my small pom-poms!
Roll them up and put them in a cupcake baking cup!
