I am an addict.

An addict for crochet slippers.


It all began when I saw slippers similar to these somewhere on the internet.

I loved them so much I couldn’t get their tempting image out of my head.

All I needed was a pattern.

But because I am terribly, terribly impatient, I found creating my own pattern quicker than looking for an official one on the web.

And since I’m no crochet guru, the pattern turned out to be really simple.

Actually, these slippers might be the simplest slippers in the universe.

Or not.

But they might.


This is what I did…

Round 1: 5 ch (chain stitch);  join into ring with sl st (slip stitch)


Round 2: 3 ch;  7 dc (double crochet stitch) into the center of the ring;  join with sl st

Round 3: 3 ch;  1 dc into first stitch;  2 dc into each next stitch; join with sl st

Round 4: 3 ch;  1 dc into first stitch;  2 dc into each next stitch

Round 5 – 13: (continue crocheting in spiral);  1 dc into each dc

Row 14: turn (!);  3 ch;  1 dc into second stitch from hook;  make 20 dc (1 dc into each next dc)

Row 26: turn;  3 ch;  1 dc into first stitch from hook;  continue 23 dc (1 dc into each next dc); another 1 dc into last stitch


Row 27 – 28: turn;  3 ch;  1 dc into second stitch from hook;  continue 24 dc (1 dc into each next dc)

Finish off and weave in the ends.

Fold the end in half and sew it together.

Make sure it’s turned like shown in the picture  – with the seam finally facing inward.




Now for the edging:

Tie a yarn of the same or different color to the edge of the slipper.

That will make our first ‘stitch’.

Make 2 chain stitches.

Then make 1 single crochet into the next bigger (as I call it) ‘hole’.

Then make 1 chain stitch.

Continue this pattern (1 single crochet stitch; 1 chain stitch) along the edge of your slipper.

Finally, make 1 slip stitch to join with the first stitch.

Finish off end weave in the ends.


And this is it.


You can adorn these slippers with colorful buttons, flowers or even crochet swirls.

I really hope you’ll find as much passion in making them as I have.
And for your inspiration, here are a few more crochet slippers that I’ve made:

Enjoy, dear friends.





(Oh, one important thing! These slippers were made to fit my feet, which are size 40 – Europe / 6.5 – UK / 9 – US. To adjust the size of these slippers to your feet you may need to change the number of rounds between the round 5 and 13 and the number or rows between the row 15 – 21 of this post. AND… I used worsted weight yarn and G – 4 mm hook to make the slippers.)

    I love these!! My grandmother used to make knitted slippers, but I haven’t had anything like that since she passed away 20 years ago. I have never made anything but a scarf with crochet, but I think I could to this… You have inspired me!

    Petra, real cute. Need to know though if you use anti-slip dots or some sort of anti-slip protection on the bottom. Knitted or crochet slippers, cute as they are, can be dangerous on wood or linoleum floors for older folks like me. If you use them, can you tell us what kind you use and where you get them.

    Thanks a bunch

      Hi Jamie. No, I don’t use anti-slip dots. Though I probably should. Need to find where to buy them myself… 🙂 Petra

        Pam williams says:

        I use dimensional fabric paint &I make dots or stripes on bottom & let them dy really good. They are a it sticky on the bottom still but at least helps with the slipping. Petra does the ch 3 count as the first doc or do you skip over it & slip to first dc? By the way I love the slippers.

    Such cute slippers! What size hook do you use? Thanks for posting. I can’t wait to make them.

    • 6.1
      ZoomYummy says:

      Hi Sam and thanks. I really don’t know what size hook that is. All I know is that I inherited it from my mother, it is older than me and I do all my slipper work with it. But maybe its finally time to find out, with all the tutorials I make. 🙂 Petra

    What a great slipper pattern! I’ve rediscovered the love of crocheting, but standard patterns still read like ancient Greek to me! Your photos are SO incredibly helpful, Petra — thanks so much!!!

    I’ll definitely be be making these!

    Oh wow – I think I might become an addict, too! Just thought about using Paper Twine for crocheting (… well, of course I did) or perhaps Paper Twines for the top and Cotton Yarn for the bottom. I think I need to get crocheting right away (luckily it’s Saturday today!).
    Thanks for sharing this tutorial

    soooo cute! I have to HAVE them!
    ok I’m off to dig into my yarn stash, I think I’ll swatch with a size G hook, it seems appropriate 🙂

    thanks for sharing the pattern and please let us know if you try to make the adorable tiny bears!
    I have to have one of them too!

    I LOVE your site. I can’t wait to try some of your recipes.

    Chrys says:

    I love these! I’m a 7 1/2 and these are the changes I made to this great design to fit my foot.
    Round 2 – I did 6 dc instead of 7
    Round 5-13 I only did 7 rows so Round 5-11 instead and then went to the step for round 14
    Round 15-21 I only did 5 rows so Round 15-19 instead and then went to the step for round 22
    and I stopped at round 24 and then it was time to sew it together!
    I hope those changes made sense the way I wrote them, great project!

    Just seen this tutorial on Craftgawker and green with envy – I wish I knew how to crochet as these slippers are so adorable! So much so that I’ve decided to feature the tutorial on my blog for this week’s Tutorial Tuesday. You be able to see it here once it get’s published:

    I’m going to give it a go and see if I can learn how to crochet in the process…

    I need help with the first two steps! Ugh! I don’t understand how to crochet in a circle. I’ve looked up so many videos, but I just can’t get it right 🙁

  22. 22
    Pam in Sewickley, PA says:

    Hi Mary Grace, for help to learn to crochet in a circle go to and search for granny square crochet. I think this would be the best way to see how it’s done. I could explain it to you but it still wouldn’t make as much sense as watching someone actually make one.
    I hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi Petra,
    Thanks for sharing the pattern. This is real simple! I’m no crochet guru either. I am beginning to do a pair for my daughter. If fact, she has found one on web which is so complicated that I gave up after row 3. :-p

    I wear a size 6 shoe. How in the world? Can I make the changes to fit my feet? By the way? What size crochet needle? Do I use?

    • 29.1
      Petra says:

      Hi Prissy!

      I guess that is not much of a problem, just try reducing the number of rows between rows 15 – 21. Try reduce it by 3 or 4 rows. You need to experiment here and keep adjusting.

      I used a G hook here.

      Happy crocheting to you. I know your slippers will look lovely.

      Petra 🙂

    Ashlie Miller says:

    Petra, you may not be a crochet guru (neither am I), but I easily understood your pattern. Yours was the first pattern I’ve done and I had little complications (and those I did were my fault, lol). I’m an extreme beginner when it comes to crochet, but your pattern helped me advance just a little. Thanks and God bless 🙂

    Chinyaray says:

    Um…I love these so much, but I am not good at knitting/crocheting…what I really wanna know is (gulp) will you get an Etsy shop and sell these anytime soon? Like, in time for winter? I’m just saying, I’d probably get at least 5-8 pairs… : )

    • 31.1
      zoomyummy says:

      Hi Chinyaray! I am really glad you like them. I love making these slippers, and I already have an Etsy shop – you can find the link in the right sidebar. Quite a few people have already asked me about selling these, so I might even do that one day. I am still thinking about how I would make them fit people’s particular feet in a perfect way, though. That makes me a little hesitant. Hm. Petra

  32. 32
    Chinyaray says:

    Found your Etsy shop (love it) and although I am tempted to send you a plaster of Paris mold of mine and my daughter’s feet for matching slippers (kidding..sort of)…I will just wait patiently. Thank you! : )

    AquaGirl says:

    Hi! I am enjoying the pattern trying to make a pair for my mother’s upcoming 92nd birthday. Starting with R14, when you say “make 20dc”, is that 20 across the row, the total stitch count? or 20 more stitches after the turning chain and first dc…..and follow rows in this manner. Thanks!

  34. 34
    Kaneta says:

    thank you for this pattern, so simple but the finsihed product is absolutely fab!

    I have to admit I read through it once and then just winged it measuring against my daughters foot as I went along, and she loves them.

    Valerie says:

    Hi! I love this “pattern”! I’ve looked through several lately to work on for Christmas gifts and this one is by far the winner 🙂 I saw that someone asked about the no-slip dots to adhere to the bottom of the slippers. You can use puff paint on the bottom of them and it works great. Just a few dots or a simple pattern and that should do you. Thanks again! Better get back to mine!

    ashley says:

    Do you join at the end of row 4? You didn’t write that, so I didn’t know if it was implied, or if you skip the joining step, and jump over the chain stitches to start the dc in each dc for row 5.

    • 43.1
      Zoom Yummy says:

      Hi Ashley! No, you don’t join at the end of row 4. You continue working in the round – which means you crochet in first stitch of following round. That way you have no seam in the end. I hope I helped. 🙂 Petra

    Jenn says:

    I’m stuck at row 3. 🙁 At the end of row 2, do you just take the first stitch and do a slip stitch..? I read through the comments but doesn’t seem like anyone is as new as me. At the end of row 2 after you do the double crochets into the center, I do the 3 chains then move to the next “V” do a double crochet then move to the next “V” and do 2 double crochets, and I do that until I have to connect a slip stitch. But then I see this BIG HOLE from where I did the 3 chains…why? I usually look watch videos on youtube but I really like this one so I’m giving it a try…but I’m so frustrated now.

  47. 47
    Winnie says:

    Hi, could you please include the total number of stitches for each row? I finished row 13 and as I got near the end of row 14, I realized I only have 19 dcs in total and therefore could not create the dip in the front of the slipper. I’ve tried it twice and can’t get past the same row 🙂

  48. 48
    toni says:

    Just a suggestion, but you could use puff paint on the bottom to make them slip resistant.

    I Love the slippers hope to start a pair next week!

      zoom yummy says:

      Hi Michelle!

      Ch – chain stitch, Sl st – slip stitch, sc – single crochet stitch, dc – double crochet stitch, hdc – half double crochet stitch.

      If you need to learn how any of these stitches is made, just go to and type the name of the stitch. The videos there are really great.

      zoomyummy says:

      Hi Katherine!

      You do not end round 4 with slip stitch, you continue into round 5 immediately (without even making 3 ch). It might sound strange, but it works. If you have any other problem, please ask. 🙂 Petra

    Love the pattern! I used a size H hook so I had to decrease the number of rows with 20 dc’s, and used less increase rows to get to the heel… it’s really easy to adjust though. Also I omitted the ch 1’s between the sc’s on the border to help hold it together a bit more snugly on the foot. Love it, and I used your swirly instructions to add some decoration! Thanks for sharing. It’s making the rounds on Pinterest now, that’s how I found it.

    Maeve says:

    This looks so simple, thank you! Just one question. If I wanted to make this for a larger or smaller foot, how would I go about doing so, just play with the pattern and tweak it until I find what works? I really do NOT need another project on my “To Do” list, but this one is so sweet and simple, I think I will have to try it. Especially those cute spirals! Thank you! 🙂

    So, I love how simple these seem to be, but I have to ask…what size needle did you use? I am attempting to make them, and I think I am following the directions but it doesn’t look anything like the picture. I am guessing you used a smaller needle. and also, what kind of yarn did you use?

        what size needle did you use?
        and I dont understand the 2dc into each of the next stitch

        • Barbara says:

          I made these for some last minute christmas gifts –
          you use a size G or 4mm hook.
          The 2dc into each of the next stitch is 2 double crochets in each of the next stitiches because you are increasing. I am pretty new at crocheting and my slippers turned out great. It’s a great pattern, wonderful of her to share with us.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! These really are the easiest slippers in the world to make. Your pattern really saved my hide! I wanted to make a cute pair of slippers as an early Christmas gift, but following a different pattern they didn’t even turn out slipper shaped! I only had about 8 hours until I met with my friend, so this pattern was a life-saver, not to mention super cute!

      Hi, I found a website for a company called Herrschners that is located in Canada. They have a liquid and a template so that you can add your own rubber non-stick designs on the bottom of socks. I’m sure they would work for slippers as well. Their address is and they do ship out of country. Hope this helps.

    I love the pattern and am looking forward to making come the first of the year! I would like to make a suggestion on the finishing in the red color.

    Liz Williams says:

    These are so simple and so cute. Also one of the easiest crochet instructables I’ve come across – although I’m a bit thick (and a newbie!) when it comes to crochet, and the only problem I’ve had is between rows 15-21. Maybe I’m not turning properly, but on each row I seem to lose a stitch, so my rows are getting narrower. I don’t suppose anyone can tell me what I’m doing wrong?

    Other than that I love the pattern – made some for myself that kept my tootsies super warm over winter. Thanks very much!

    LOVE this slipper pattern! I made a pair in a snuggly rainbow sherbet variegated yarn. They’re my favorite slippers ever, I added a chain stitched a stretchy “shoe lace” threaded around the top and tied in a bow to keep them on my skinny ankles. One slight problem, my hubby tried them on (where was my camera …that would’ve been a great blackmail picture!) Now I have to make him a pair,and somehow “studly them up a little”. thanks for the nice pattern & awesome instructions. They WERE the easiest thing I’ve ever crocheted.

    Hi Alex!

    Thanks for the kind words!!! 🙂

    You don’t do the ‘ch 3’ post in rounds 5-13 – all you do is continue working in following stitch (without ‘closing’ the previous round). Your work will grow in spiral and there will be no joining seam.

    I hope it was understandable…

    Happy crocheting!!!

      Hi Carolina, yes, I understand you question… in this case, the ‘3 ch’ post counts as first stitch here, so first stitch from hook would actually be the 4th stitch from hook… and second stitch from hook would be the 5th one… Petra

    Hi this is the other Ashley (I called the slippers “cuties”). I just completed my very own pair that I converted into size 7.5 US sizing! These are adorable, and other people want me to make them for them. It only took me about 3 hours for each one. I love it!

    Waione says:

    Thankyou! Your instructions were perfect!!! My mother taught me how to crochet using different terminology (single crochet is an apple, double crochet is a banana etc etc (peaches, pineapples, strawberrys) so I find most instructions quite difficult. Three days ago I made my first pair of brown and pink, then I got an order, and then I got another order!! Have to stop taking orders now.. these are great, and my own are so cumfy!!

    Great pattern! I was wondering, do you know how much of the main colour yarn you used? (Either yards/metres or by weight). I’m thinking of making these and would like to be sure how much yarn to order! Thanks 🙂

    Hi Petra,

    I absolutely love your patterns, very easy to understand and follow. I recently purchased three from you 🙂 I was just wondering if these slippers could be made with feltable yarn? If so, would you recommend a certain hook size?



    • 209.1
      Petra says:

      Hello again Catisha!
      Thank you for the kind words, I am really glad you like the patterns. I think that these slippers can be definitely made with feltable yarn – that could look wonderful!! Enjoy! Petra 🙂

    Is your simple crochet slippers written for American or English knitting?
    I was wondering because I finished the 6th role and it fit over my toes. I was doing an american dc
    Should I have been doing sc? Also what size hook and yarn did you use. Please help.

    Hi I think your slipper pattern is not easy. One you don’t say what type of worsted weight yarn you used, becasue that is just how the yarn is made and not what weight it is. For example worsted yarn #3, or #4.

    I love this! I just finished my first slipper and It turned out great. 🙂 I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Strawberry, with 8dc into the ring, and in row 4 I did 1dc in 3 stitches, and 2dc in all others, just for a different fit, because with 7dc in the ring it wasn’t working quite right 🙂 I trimmed it with Red Heart SS (a little scratchy but it works) and made a neat little bow.

    I’ll post pictures when it’s daylight and I have both slippers finished! 🙂 Tot Ziens xx

    Suzanne I. Schnell says:

    Your simple slippers are indeed simple. However, could you please send the instructions to my email address? The instructions are given on the internet with so many pictures that are really not necessary and make the cost of copying them more than is necessary.
    I would like to make them for foot coverings to wear in shoes. The ones that are presently offered in the stores today are really not as good as in yesteryears.

      Hi Suzanne!

      I am glad you like the pattern.

      You can easily print out the pattern by clicking the ‘Print Friendly’ icon which you can find in the line of icons at the end of the post (it is the last one).

      If you click that icon, a new document will open. In this document you can easily click to delete any text or picture you don’t wish to be printed.

      I hope this helps….

      Happy crocheting to you!

    Petra you rock. My cousin told me to go to you. I’m 53 and RElearning how to crochet to keep my hnads busy. I’m on a lot ot steroids for medical reasons. I’ve had to relearn terminology and now how to read patterns. And a lot of the ones that are out there that say easy make me feel stupid. Yours makes so much sence!!!! Now i need to know how toget a printable version because I’m a nut job and have to have list and such to work by. Did I mention I’m on HIGH steroids. If I ever finish the pattern I’m currently attempting I want to use yours right away. I only make stuff for family and would never not give you credit for the outcome, although I dont know if that’s a good thing. LOL!

    Thank you so much for providing this pattern! I absolutely love it. I’ve only made one slipper so far, but it is so cute!

I’ll be making a pair for my sister who’ll be going through some surgery, and I think that she’ll love them. Again, thank you!

    Adele says:

    Coming from South Africa, I constantly need to determine if the pattern is in UK or US stitches. A trick that I use is looking at the starting number of chains. 3 Chains tells me that after pulling the yarn through the loop, I should have 3 loops on the hook, then the DC or TR. As my grandmother taught me how to crochet and she used her own terminology, I was forced to find ways of understanding what I should do. I’m looking forward to making the slippers!

    Adore, adore, adore this. Couldn’t have been simpler and totally customizable. I did it with a size G hook and Red Heart Super Saver yarn (freshly washed for softness!). i added a few rounds in the spiral, to cover my high arch, but they turned out to fit about 7.5 or an 8 in US women’s size. For my MIL and SIL who have slightly bigger sizes I will just start with more, and for my sister and mom who are smaller I will start with less. Can’t wait to try doing different colors for a “paint dipped” toe effect! Way to go-splendid pattern!

    Debra says:

    I really like the pattern. I work in a nursing home and some of our residents are in wheel chairs or Geri-chairs all the time so I wanted something I could make up quick. My question is do you make the front shorter when you add the strap? I am trying to get a couple of the spider ones made before halloween for our residents and i will do some for the other holidays to. What you could also tell people if they use a larger hook it will increase the size of the slipper using the same pattern. I did to make a size 9 used a J hook. Debra

I can usually just look at something and make it, much easier for me anyways! I think I am dislexic or something close to that. My thing is making hats. I most have at least a hundred or more just lying around waiting for a head to hope on! I can send picks of those too! Well thank you for your easy intructions for slippers… I can’t spell either… oh well…Do you sell any of your things? If yes, where or what website?? Take care and have a nice evening!!

    Jackie Martin says:

    can I throw in a suggestion? I also make slippers for the family, only with 2 strands of yarn to make them sturdier and warmer, but, what I also do is to make 4 half rows at the end of the slipper to create a set in heel. It makes the slipper stay on better. just when you get to the end and before sewing it up, crochet half way down, turn and crochet back up, repeat for 4 rows, then crochet the edges together. You will end up with a set in heel. Hope you do not mind my suggestion.

    • 270.1
      Aubrey Cox says:

      Jackie, so to do this would you start 4 rows before the end of the slipper, or right after the required amount of rows?

      Hi jackie, ok did the 4 half rows at the end of slipper. When you say crochet half way down then back up, do I turn, make 3 ch then dc? Love your idea but I need help describing after 4 half rows.

    Following your pattern, I’ve made quite a few pairs of slippers. However, I’d like to branch out by including a strap to make them look more like Mary Janes. Could you provide some instructions for adding a strap? I’ve seen several patterns that tell you to crochet the strap separately and then it attach it later, but I’d rather crochet mine while crocheting the shoes. If you could please provide these instructions, I’d be most appreciative.

    Nice, simple pattern; now I don’t have to figure much out for myself, LOL. I’m going to make these after working out what I need to do to fit my size 6 US feet (shouldn’t be a problem).

    Some other changes I might do are to reduce the instep (edge comes closer to the toes) and round off a little more to make them more like ballet slippers…and, I think I’m going to do a corded edge (reverse single crochet, aka: crab stitch).

    Thanks! 🙂

    My daughter pinned this and said she wanted a pair. Some how it ended up on my facebook wall. I’ve had three others wanting a pair. I did the first with some alterations to fit her foot and it turned out great. Have made one of the second pair and working on the other one. Great pattern! Thanks for posting it for free!!!

    Hi Petra,
    I hope this will be my only question. I just made one of these for my daughter and it’s pretty big. Is it because i crochet with a loser stitch? I think I remember seeing somewhere how you suggest to make the size smaller but now I can’t locate it. Would you be able to remind me?

    Thank you,

      It is the number of stich. i.e. 1 dc means to one double crochet, 2 dc means do two double crochets etc.

    I followed your pattern and mine looks nothing like yours. Mine looks like it would fit BIG FOOT’S foot. I wish I could post the picture so you can see it. Some of the directions were confusing. Like 1 dc into second stitch from hook and another 1 dc into last stitch. Is the second from hook part of the chain or is that using the tops of the dc. Also the part about adding another dc in last stitch?

    I have been trying to make these slippers for three days. I have followed all the instructions up until about round 7.

I want to make these so bad!!! Thank u!

    • 362.1
      Autumn says:

      that’s what mine did too, just keep working on it and it should take more shape! if you get to about round 9 or 10 and it’s still looking a little weird, maybe double check all of your steps and watch some videos about crocheting in the round. 🙂

    • 362.2
      Mary Lou Sagaser says:

      Since this is in a “spiral” round, the upper edge of your crocheting is going to be uneven (it will spiral upward). To keep track of your rounds, it’s helpful to use a marker. Put one in the beginning or ending of round 5. If your crocheting is turning in on itself, you’re probably putting too many stitches in each row. Make sure you’re only putting one dc in each stitch.

    Kyra says:

    These are amazing, and the first pattern that I have found that is actually free. Does anyone know where or how to find the pattern for the flowers that are on the pink slippers?

    question: Would you clarify step three? 3 ch; 1 dc into first stitch; 2 dc into each next stitch; join with sl st – would you do 2dc in each stitch around?? Same with the next step….continue around?? I worked the pattern the way it was written and I had seven dc in the ring, then 1 dc in the first stitch, 2dc in the next …then what?? 2dc in each stitch around? Love the pattern – would like to make sure I do it right. I work 16 hour days so time is very limited. I hate ripping out work 😀

    Emma says:

    I really like this pattern a LOT! Petra might claim to be no crochet expert…but she sure has a pattern that WORKS here! I paid money for another similar one, that wasn’t half as good or easy to understand! Anyway, only thing for sure was that I really had to do some sizing down with this. I wear a U.S. size 9, which, according to the pattern, should have worked perfectly with the pattern as written. Everything fit fine as far as the toe part and the sides and all that…but the length was way long for me. I shortened the amount of rows on the “toe tube” and also the length of the heel/ankle section by a couple of rows each part. But, no I have perfectly fitting slippers that work up fast, and are easy yet look really classy. Thanks! I can’t have too many slippers…going to make more!

  395. 395
    Peggy says:

    Question – how many stitches should you have at the end of the forth row? I have two slippers of a different size, and I’m wondering which one is wrong. Thanks.

      I believe that would be 25 sts. after row 4. Hope that helps!

      • 395.1.1
        Emma says:

        Oops…sorry. I miscalculated. I think it’s around 42 stitches? Or something like that. You’ll have to add up the previous rows…from 1 to 4 to figure it out. The chains count as a stitch, I believe (they usually do in other patterns).

  396. 396
    B Evans says:

    Ashley says:

    I feel silly with this comment but ive never been good at following written patterns im more of a video gal lol but im so lost after row 4 i kept going in a spiral but it looked nothing like the pic more like a flat circle… someone HELP ME please!!!!

    • 398.1
      Emma says:

      You may be inadvertently adding stitches. After row #4 you don’t chain for each circle and you only put one double crochet into each stitch around. Rows 5 to 13 (in my case 10) is more like a long single spiraling row. I used a stitch marker to give me an idea how many times (“rows”) I went around. The piece should start curling into itself as you go, making a sort of tube with the beginning circle closing off one end. When it started looking like it might be getting close to the right length to cover my toes, I periodically tried it on to see how it fit and where the “tube” came to on my foot.

    I wish I could upload you a picture. I am new to crochet and thought I would never be able to make a pair of slippers. Thanks to you I have made my first pair with hardly no trouble at all. They are really cute and will go with the dishcloths, & bath poufs I have made my family for Christmas. Thanks again for a great tutorial.
