Joann's sells green pepper patterns up here. It's the only store I have ever been in that sells them.

I have the pattern, but I haven't yet been able to find the Nylon Lycra (Spandex) for the tops of the socks

I made the fleece slippers for DD. Then I made another pair bigger than the ones that said they were her size. They tend to run small Gave the ones that were supposed to fit a size 9 women’s to my niece (9yo) for Christmas & they were only slightly big. So check your size before cutting. I used ribbed T-shirt knit for the top & vinyl for the soles.
Happiness is having time to sew!!

Here is a link for all types of ribbing, they also have outdoor fabrics and such. I do believe prices are by the inch.

I make the Green Pepper fleece socks for my daughter a lot (she lives in the Kootenays, cold winters) and with this last pair, instead of a lycra band I did a braided top-Donna(dmoses), somewhere on this site, has instructions on braid for a fleece blanket and it is so simple and SO nice. I plan on doing some with just the loops, too, my kid lives in them and I have always found the lycra a pain to put on. Donna, can you direct us to the correct thread? (I even braided the bottom of her Xmas fleece pj pants just for fun, she thinks its awesome)

Hi Susy,

I just saw this. Here are the instructions for the fleece braid on a can easily adapt it to your project.
Cut a 3-inch square out from each corner.
Fold each edge 1 1/2 inches to the back, and stitch 1/4 inch from raw edge. You will have what looks like a casing on each side.
Make cuts every 1/2 inch, going close to but not through the stitching. This will give you the 'loopy edge', which is very nice as is.
To get the braided look, start in the middle of one side. Pass 'loop 2' back through 'loop 1'. Then pass loop 3 back through loop 2, and so on all the way around. It is sort of like crocheting a chain stitch. When you reach the last loop, tuck it into the first loop and stitch it down. Voilà! You have a braided edge on your fleece blanket!
Take care,
