Free Crochet Pattern: Caramel Corn Slipper Socks

ILikeCrochet Free Pattern

Time to slide around in your fashionably stockinged feet! Because they are worked from toe to heel, these socks are a great first pair for someone who has never attempted crocheted socks before.
This pattern was featured in I Like Crochet Oct 2017 (photo credit to ILikeCrochet.com), and now that I can release it--I wanted to share it with YOU! 
The yarn is from Cascade Yarns: Heritage 150 Prints and you'll only need one skein. I love the variety of colors, and this one is perfect for the fall, isn't it!?! The prints are so cool and do the striping for you.
Let's talk about crocheting socks. Does that just sound scary to you? I used to run from sock yarn. Seriously, RUN! I didn't want to even try--I just didn't know where to begin. Then one day, I found the perfect yarn I wanted to use...isn't that how it always works? The yarn gets bossy and inspiring. I don't know what came over me that day but I decided to do my research and learn....fast forward a few years, I picked up my hook and designed a few pairs myself! I like to break it down so that even beginners can make them. Trust me--it's not hard!
These are made from the TOE UP, and all that means is that the heel is easier that way...either way-it's not 'hard'. So, just take it section by section-- and work your way up to the leg cuff and wa-lah! You're done! I had read a blog one time that said, "Make two if you have two feet", and that just cracked me up. So, in the spirit of socks... just make 2! 
Without further delay, let's make your socks!
