They are called The puke slippers because they really-really look like that. I made them from all the scraps of yarn I had, not caring about the colors at all. I'm visiting my mother this week and I was thinking I could give them as a gift. What do you think? Will she make fun of me for the rest of my life or not?
Thanks!







P.S. Please excuse the messy rug, it looks filthy, I know, but it's just stained.  Embarrassed

If my puke looked that colour I'd be terrified!  I really really like these, so if your mother doesn't, send them my way Smiley

Thanks, you've helped me feel better about them (and myself, haha). I'll give them to my mom.
I have to mention that these are the first things i have the courage to give somebody. I've been crochetting for about a year and all i've made until now was for me. And never worn out of the house, of course  Smiley

I like the shaping on those, it looks so good despite the "puke"!

I didn't use a pattern, i didn-t even count my stitches. I just eye-measured them until they looked the same size. Of course, they just looked that way. One is slightly bigger  Cheesy

I really like them too! I was hoping you had a pattern  Sad You did an awesome job just using your eye!  I would gladly take these cozy looking socks as a gift.  Even though you call them Puke socks, the colors somehow all look great together!

Sorry I haven't written a pattern. But maybe this helps, if you want to make them:
I chained 2, then worked 6 hdc in 1st chain. I joined and worked in the round until i finished increasing, and then i just worked a spiral of hdc's till i got the length I needed. For the opening, i started working in rows. To shape the heel part, i decreased in the middle of the rows until i had about two stitches left. Then, I just worked in the spiral again for the "cuff".
I hope this makes sense, English is not my mother tongue   Embarrassed

I absolutely love the puke slippers.  If they were mine, I would not give them as a gift, but not because they aren't nice; just because I can be incredibly selfish about things sometimes.
