Pattern: Caliente Slocks, by loutheperson
Yarn: Dream in Colour Classy (250 yds/114 g)
Needles: 5 mm DPNs
Comments: Designed with dreams of the heat of a far-off summer, these super easy slipper socks are designed to get you through the cold month of January! They are so quick and simple they are bound to take your mind off your hangover, however strong it is, without being too taxing on your post-Christmas New Year brain and will give you warm feet in just a couple of evenings.
They are knit from the toe up, so you can try them on as you go (or whenever the cold gets too much to bear). The cuff is worked in reverse and then turned inside out when completed, to fit snugly around the ankle. For added comfort and extra warmth, the pattern includes instructions on how to make an insole cover. The pattern is written for 5mm needles but without insole, use the smaller needle choice for a snugger fit.
‘Caliente’ is the Spanish word for hot, and I hope these slippers will brighten up your winter with a bit of Mediterranean sun — wrapped round your feet!
The ‘Caliente Slocks’ pattern is the fourth to be released under the Loumms Year of Socks. It is available on Ravelry as a free download. In the meantime, if you’d like to try it out you can download the pattern here.
