8: Cozy Slipper Socks by Debbie Bliss

Slipper socks are a gorgeous gift, and these are so easy to make because they are knitted flat and seamed, with no circular knitting to do, so they’re a great project for new knitters. Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky is a luxury yarn that is worth the treat to keep your toes (and anyone else’s toes) super cozy and warm.
