I have these:

and *love* them to bits.  They are the best thing ever.  Does anyone know where I can find a pattern to make my own?

Why not start with something like this:

...and then make the tops as slouchy as you need them to be? If you get lost, there are plenty of books out there on sock knitting. If the sock part scares you, you could also take apart a pair of larger gauge socks and reknit the tops...

Not that I'm a sock pro....but I would definately advise that you start from toe up, just seems to make sense.  Then maybe increase (M1) in the ankle area....where then you can incorperate your own design (ribbing, and so forth).

Good Luck, And if anyone does have a pattern I'm curious to see it.  I'm sure its fairly simple.

Just one question....When you pull up the sock, is it a snug fit?

No, they're not a snug fit...they just fall down if you try and pull them up.  I guess if you had bigger legs than me they may stay up... or if you were making them, you could make them less enormous around the tops. 

I don't have a sock-fear, but have neve rmade any yet... I think I should give it a go soon really........

If you have a chance, make a sample first in something really chunky and big so you rip and reknit easily. There are a lot of new techniques to sock making, but they're really easy to get the hang of...
