Inspired by a pair of socks entered in our "Koigu & You" customer show, we designed these little one-skein slipper socks for the 2009 LYS Tour. They make great gifts, as they’re easy to fit and don’t take a lot of yarn. They’re nice for around the house. And terrific for travel. Our staff loves to wear them with clogs.
Finished foot length: 8"/20cm. Fits 9–10"/23–25cm foot. (You should be able to add another 1"/2.5cm of length within your one skein of Koigu.)
1 skein Koigu KPPPM (175 yds/160m) or 175 yds/160m of an equivalent fingering-weight yarn.
Set of 4 US 3 (3.25mm) double-points, or size to obtain gauge.
- This is a physical pattern.
- We think this is the perfect travel project—they're always interesting to knit. Karen says, "Start them on the light rail to the airport. You can wear them 2 days into your trip!" Plus they pack well, scrunching up into the smallest of corners in your suitcase, and they're great for padding around hotel rooms or walking a new city's streets in your clogs.
