Pattern for children’s slipper socks

Childrens slipper socks

Will fit a 3-4 year old depending of the yarn and hook you use. 
I used heavy Cotten and a 5,5 mm hook 
To make different sizes see further down.
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
Sl st – slip stitch
St – stitch 
Sc2tog – single crochet two stitches together. (decrease)
Ch 8 to begin
R1: sc in 2. Ch from hook and across, turn the work around and sc on the opposite side and across. (14 st)
R2: 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in the next 5 st2 sc in last st – twice (18 st)
R3: 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 7 st2 sc in last st – twice ( 22 st
R5: 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 9 st2 sc in last st – twice (26 st)
R6-20 (or until you reach the beginning of the heel) 1 sc in all st (26 st)
R21: 1 sc in the next 13 st,  ch 1, turn.
Now you will crochet the heel.
R22: 1 sc in next 13 st, ch 1, turn.
R23: 1 sc in next 12 st, ch 1, turn.
R24: 1 sc in next 11 st, ch 1, turn.
R25: 1 sc in next 10 st, ch 1, turn.
R26: 1 sc in next 9 st, ch 1, turn.
R27: 1 sc in next 8 st, ch 1, turn.
R28: 1 sc in next 7 st, ch 1, turn.
R29: 1sc in next 7 st.
You now have a series of steps, you will be crocheting in the sides of these steps (between them) and in the unworked st.
R30: sc in side of the first step and sc in the unworked st, sl st in the side of the next step, turn ( no ch 1).
Skip sl st and sc in next 9 st.
R31: sc in side of the step and sc in unworked st, sl st in the side of the next step, turn, skip sl st and sc in next 11 st.
R32: sc2tog in side of step and unworked st, sl st in side of next step, turn, skip sl st and sc in next 12 st.
R33: sc2tog in side of step and unworked st, sl st in side of next step, turn, skip sl st and sc in next 13 st.
R34: sc2tog in side of step and unworked st, sl st in same sc as the beginning of the heel, skip sl st and sc in next 14 st.
R35: sc2tog in side of step and unworked st, sl st in side of next step, turn, skip sl st and sc in next 28 st.
R36 – ? Sc until you reach the desired length.
Fasten of and cut the yarn. Weave in ends. 
To make the sock slimmer you can skip round 5 or you can make your beginning chain shorter. If you skip round 5 your heel will be a little different because you also have to make fewer steps, but it works just as fine for me. 
To make it wider you can ad extra ch to your beginning chain. 
Just remember when you reach round 21 you need to sc in half the number of stitches of the entire round. Then you just decrease by one st per round from round 23 until you reach the number of stitches in your starting chain (minus the one you turn on, so ch 8 = 7 stitches) And then you continue from round 30 until you run out of steps.
