Making a pair of Slipper Socks-Cheerful Cable Knit Slipper Socks Tutorial

Marly Bird shows you how to knit with this Cheerful Knitted Cable Slipper Sock pattern from Red Heart Yarns. Anytime of year is a great time to learn how to knit socks but especially during the holidays.

About the Pattern:

These slipper socks make a great gift. The pattern is free from RedHeart.com and uses a worsted weight yarn called ‘With Love Metallic’. Learn how to knit the slipper socks using double pointed needles with my tried and true sock making magic (have you seen her No Cuss Cast On?).

I have broken this pattern into a 3 part series so you are able to knit along with me as I make my own pair of socks. In order to make these videos as user friendly and perfect for all skill levels, I don’t speed through much of the knitting. So you can literally knit along with me for a majority of the sections. Of course there will be times when you are supposed to continue working in the pattern until a certain row but by that point you will be confident in your skills. So, what are you waiting for? Come join us as we go through sock knitting project step by step together.

Note: this pattern is listed as intermediate but if you are an advanced beginner I think you should definitely give this a try!
