Super Simple Slipper Sox. . .

This slipper works up super fast because its knit with 2 strands of yarn held together on a large needle. And it feels so cushy and comfy on your tootsies.
Give it a try. I think you'll really like it.

MATERIALS:
- 2 skeins DK Weight yarn in Color(s) of choice.
I mixed a dusty blue and blue Ragg together.
- One set of 5, Size 10 dpns.
- Tapestry Needle

GAUGE: 4 sts and 5 rows = 1"

SIZE: Small Adult

PATTERN STITCH:
The pattern stitch is a series of K2,P2 for 3 rounds, knit a round, then reversed
P2,K2 for 3 rounds. This creates a very elastic cushy texture, which is just what
you want for slippers. It also creates an interesting checkerboard pattern.

CUFF:
NOTE: Knit with 2 strands of yarn throughout.
Cast on 32 stitches. Divide stitches evenly placing 8 stitches on each of 4 dpns.
Join, being careful not to twist yarn.

RNDS 1,2: Knit
RNDS 3,4,5: Work K2, P2 rib
RND 6: Knit
RNDS 7,8,9: Work P2, K2 rib
RND 10: Knit
Repeat Rnds 3 through 10 once more [or length desired].
NOTE: you will begin the heel on a Rnd 3 repeat.

HEEL:
Row 1: Knit 16 sts [K2, P2], turn. Place rem sts on holder
Row 2: K2, P2 across, turn
Row 3: K2, P2 across, turn
Row 4: Purl all stitches across
Row 5: P2, K2 across, turn
Row 6: P2, K2 across, turn
Row 7: P2, K2 across, turn
Row 8: Purl all stitches across
Repeat Rows 1,2,3 and 4 once more.

HEEL TURNING
Row 1: [Right side facing] Slip 1, K9, slip 1, K1, psso, K1, turn.
Row 2: Slip 1, P5, P2tog, P1, turn.
Row 3: Slip 1, K5, slip 1, K1, psso, K1, turn.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 til all stitches are worked.

GUSSET:
With separate needle, #1 Needle: pick up 7 stitches along left side of heel. With another separate needle, #2 Needle: knit the first 8 stitchs off the holder following RND 3 in pattern. With another separate needle, #3 Needle: knit the remaining 8 stitches off the holder continuing the RND 3 of pattern. With another separate needle, #4 Needle: pick up 7 stitches along other side of heel, and knit half the stitches from #1 needle onto #4 needle. [there should now be the same number of stitches on #1 and #4 needles and 8 stitches each on #2 and #3 needles]. Knit one complete round, now following Pattern RND 4, on the #2 and #3 Needles

BEGIN GUSSET DECREASE:
Decrease RND:
#1 Needle; Knit to last two stitches on needle, K2tog.
#2 and #3 Needles, knit in Pattern.
#4 Needle; Slip 1, K1, passo, knit remainder of stitches.
Next RND: Knit even.
Repeat these two rounds until you have 32 stitches.

FOOT:
Continue to knit in pattern [Knit all stitches on #1 and #4 Needles. Knit in Pattern RNDS on #2 and #3 Needles]. Knit until approx. 2" from desired length of foot. End on a RND 10 of Pattern.

BEGIN TOE DECREASE:
#1 Needle; Knit to last 2 stitches, K2tog.
#2 Needle; Slip 1, K1, psso, knit to end of needle.
#3 Needle; Knit to last 2 stitches, K2tog.
#4 Needle; Slip 1, K1, psso, knit to end of needle.
Decrease every round til 2 stitches remain on each needle. Cut yarn, put tail thru tapestry needle, then thread thru all stitches, draw tightly, and tie off.
NOTE:I decreased every round because I wanted a short blunt toe. If you prefer a more pointed toe, decrease every other row.

TIE: Optional
With 2 strands together, crochet a chain approx. 18" long [or length desired]. Thread Tie through ankle of slipper if desired. Tie a knot at each end to prevent unraveling.
