The Strawberry Blossom Slipper Socks are soft, lofty, and extra cozy for toasty feet and legs. An easy to construct “tube” sock is finished off with an extra (optional) drawstring and fun pompoms. One of the most fun things about this pattern are the fun stripes…I can’t wait to see what colors you pick too!
The Strawberry Blossom Slipper Socks were designed for the Crochet Charity Drive. Do you remember our mitten drive a few months ago? This time we’re making slippers!

Make a chain 41 inches long, fasten off and weave in ends. Repeat for second string.
Make two per slipper using one color for a solid pom pom, and two or more colors for a multi color pompoms. I wrapped mine around my hands two strands held together.
