Quick and Super Easy Sleep Sock Pattern to Knit for you

The first time I saw my macho husband (much younger then) in lime green elf-like sleep socks, I burst out laughing. He was not ashamed at all, but rather convinced me that it is ideal for my winter's feet. Armed with the easy sleep sock pattern I returned home to knit my own pair!  

Back in the day, Pinterest and Google were idealistic dreams and printed books and magazines were copied by hand! This is exactly how I got the pattern from my mother-in-law and she from her mother, handwritten.  

This pattern must have warmed up many cold feet over the years and luckily, I know by sharing it, there will be more elf-like moments!

What you'll need:

100g of yarn (double knit or chunky)

Knitting Needles according to the thickness of your yarn

Crochet hook for laces

Stitch Markers

Blunt Needles (stitching it together)
