There's nothing better when the weather gets really cold than a super-warm pair of socks to wear to bed or lounging around the house. These Fleece Bed Socks are thick enough they're almost like slippers you can sleep in.
The heavy yarn makes these a really quick knit -- you can finish a single sock in a couple of evenings, or a pair in about a week -- that you'll use all winter long.

Knitting the Foot:
- Using color A, cast on 32 stitches. Join in round and work in knit 1, purl 1 rib for 2 inches. Note:If you would like the cuff to draw in more around the leg, knit the ribbing on a smaller set of needles.
