Over 25 Free Knit Sock and Slipper Patterns

This page has loads of free knit sock patterns and free knit slipper patterns to work up your own special slippers and socks.  Make them for yourself or give them as gifts!

Whenever the Christmas holiday rolls around, I’m always thinking of gifting my nieces and nephews socks.  Like, every year!  I love cozy, comfy socks, so I assume everyone loves to get a new pair of socks.

I was feeling bad after a few years of giving them socks, so I asked outright: Are you guys OK with getting socks?  The answer was a resounding “Yes” from almost all of them.  I guess they love socks like I do!Knitted Socks by Annette

Free Knit Sock Patterns

The sock knitting patterns range in difficulty from very simple to more complex, so there is something for everyone.

Can beginners knit socks?

The patterns here include knit socks for complete beginners. Those just starting out knitting can make some comfy and warm socks.  A lot of the more difficult patterns use circular needles.

Beginners can knit basic tube socks with the free knit sock patterns using two needles with simple stitches.  They will quickly be able to move on to the free knit sock patterns that are more classic.

How do you knit easy socks?

The key to knitting easy socks is to find a clearly written pattern!  The stitches should be those that you already know.  Steer clear of complex stitches that are yet to be learned.

Choose a pattern using two needles if knitting in the round with circular needles is found to be intimidating.

One of the free knit socks pattern below is finger knitted!  No need to use needles at all for these socks. 

Free Knit Slipper Patterns

The knit slipper patterns, like the free knit sock patterns, range in difficulty from easy to more complex.
