  1. Those are really cute. I’m always looking for a sock just to walk around in the house. I love going semi-bare foot – to me that’s no shoes but footies or socks. I can’t wait to go home and make a pair. Thank you for sharing your pattern. ~ Mary ~

  2. I love it, but for what size foot does it fit. I always have to adjust patterns bc I have a huge foot, but if I know the starting size it makes adjusting easier. Plus, i want to know if I need to make adjustments for the other people I want to make them for.

    • Thanks! The way I made these fit my foot (US 9.5) but were very snug. I’d recommend a larger hook and DK or sport weight yarn for a much bigger finished product.

      Hope this helps! Happy hooking!

  3. I am confused…….how do you “sk next st, working in front, dc in same st as joining repeat this stitch”?

    I keep trying, but it is not making any sense to me.

    Thank you for your help.
