Maxine wears a size 7 shoe and these fit her as an ankle
length sock. These stretch a little to fit over the heel.
To make larger you can either use a larger hook or you can add a few stitches in the rounds. (instead of 28 stitches you could have 32 sts or whatever will fit) (you can do this by increasing the number of sts in the 4th round or adding another increase sc round.)
You can also add a few rounds in the body of the sock to increase the length of the sock. these are comfortible to wear and stay on your feet when you sleep.
And here are the perfect tools for making these awesome sleep-socks!
