Materials: Yarn - Bulky Alpaca: I was using scraps of Bernat Alpaca Natural Blends. 1 Skein Red was enough for both Calves, 1 Skein. Brown was enough for both “Feet.” Heel/Toe do not take much, scraps are great for these parts.

Needle: 5.00 (H) Hook

Size: As described will fit a medium width foot. Length of calf and foot can easily be customized to the wearer.

My Chicken Scratchn'

SC – Single Crochet

CH – Chain

SS – Slip Stitch

ST – Stitch

DEC - Decrease

RIBBED CALF:

1. Chain 35, turn

2. SC into backs only, chain 1, turn (34)

3. Repeat #2 39x or to the size you want. I find that if I can join the 2 ends together and slide my arm into it

without stretching out the ribbing it fits my calf comfortably.

4. Join the 2 ends together by slip stitching through backs.

5. CH1, SC 1 repeat so there are 40 stitches evenly around, SS into the 1st ST, CH1, turn (40)

6. SC into each stitch around, SS into 1st ST, CH 1, Turn (40)

7. Repeat #6 for 2 more rows Change to a new color for the heel

HEEL:

1. 20 SC , CH 1, Turn (20)

2. Repeat #1 for a total of 12 rows

3. 8 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 8 SC, CH1, turn (18)

4. 18 SC, CH 1, Turn (18)

5. 7 SC, DC next 2, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, Fold Heel in half out away from direction of toe. SS the 1

halves together, CH 1, Turn heel right side in Change to new color for foot

FOOT:

1. 15 SC evenly spaced from center of heel to Ribbing, SC in the next 20, 15 SC evenly spaced from ribbing to

center of heel, SS into 1st SC (50) (You can either CH 1 and turn or continue as a spiral depending on the

look you want. (I'm lazy and like to spiral, less thinking more doing)

2. 13 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 16 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 13 SC,

SS to 1st SC, (46)

3. 12 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 14 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 12 SC,

SS to 1st SC, (42)

4. 11 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 12 SC, DEC over 2 SC, DEC over 2 SC, 11 SC,

SS to 1st SC (38)

5. 10 SC, DEC over 2 SC,, 14 SC, DEC over 2 SC,, 10 SC, SS to 1st SC (36)

6. At this point continue your spiral using SC. Measure against your foot, switch to a new color for the toe

when the length of your sock reaches the base of your toes.

TOE:

1. Start your new color in the middle of the bottom of the foot. This way it hides the new color change

when doing the lazy spiral method.

2. Continue SC for 3 full rows around

3. 4th row DEC over 2 SC on every 6th SC

4. 5th row DEC over 2 SC on every 5th SC

5. 6th row DEC over 2 SC on every 3rd SC

6. SC all the way around 1.5 times. Flatten the sock out with heel on bottom and the toe facing up at you.

You should have stopped your SC at the “corner”

7. SS the 2 parts together to close up the toe!

Turn your sock inside out and voila, you have a fun, thick slipper sock!

Fun thing about this sock! If you don't want to change colors you can make the whole sock form start to finish with

one skein of yarn, nut stopping starting.
