Everyone needs a great pair of comfy slippers, and summer is a great season to make some!

Slippers and slipper socks make great portable projects, and are excellent items to have on hand once the weather begins to get cooler.  Here are 5 of great patterns to make a pair of these must haves!

These Scrunchy, Slouchy Slipper Socks can be knit or crocheted, and are a great way to keep your feet and ankles warm on chilly nights. These socks are too thick to wear inside shoes, but are just right for snug, cozy slippers!
The Oxford Slippers make a great gift for men. This pattern is written for a discontinued yarn, but would work up excellently in any sturdy, bulky yarns like Tweed Stripes or Jiffy. Modeled after the classic shoe, these slippers even have laces for support!
A great project for loom knitters, the  Loom Knit Chunky Footies They work up beautifully, are soft and cushy, and are a great way to put a loom to good use!
The Red Hot Slipper Socks are knit in Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and are thick and comfy. These slipper socks only come up to the ankle, and are great for someone who prefers a low cuff on socks.
These Crochet Adult Booties are a great option for crocheters – they even match these baby booties in a very similar style!
