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 23 – 25: turn;  3 ch;  1 dc into second stitch from hook;  continue 22 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.

 

Done.

 

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 have been trying to make these slippers for three days. I have followed all the instructions up until about round 7. I am frustrated because my circle is flat until round 6 when it starts to turn into itself. Am I doing something wrong or will my slipper begin to take shapr the more rounds I do? Help!! I want to make these so bad!!! Thank u!

      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.

    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? The others are cute too, but I have a specific request for those flowers and I can’t figure them out! Please and thank you a million!

    I suppose I can figure it out for myself, but it would be nice if you would pattern out the Mary Jane straps and how they are attached (sewn or crocheted on).

    Sharon Perkins says:

    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 :D

    Gweneth says:

    3 chain then double crochet in the same stitch then from that point out ,2 double in each stitch around .

    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 worries..now 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!

  45. 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.

    • 395.1
      Emma says:

      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).

  46. 396
    B Evans says:

    Love this pattern. I made my pair a bit too big so I after the trim, I ran my yarn thru and tightened like a draw string. Perfect. And there’s a pretty bow in the back.

  47. 397
    Terri says:

    I am new to crocheting so this may seem like a silly question but here goes. When imfinsih round 4 do I slip stitch? Also for round 5-13 do I chain for each round?

    • 397.1
      Ashley says:

      i didnt slip stitch after row 4 and i havent chained rows 5-13 and its coming out as pictured. Hope that helps Terri!

    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 luv this pattern. my first pair of slippers turned out very nice for a self taught person like myself. Huge problem I have. I can’t figure out why my slippers turn out soooooo big and I’m not knowledgeable enough to know how to make them smaller. I used the recommended hook size and all. I would greatly appreciate it if u could help me out. Thanks for an awesome pattern
