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

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:

(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.)

Crochet Swirls (Tutorial)

This is a little crochet swirl.

You might have seen me using it in this project.

And since I gave you a pinky swear promising I’d show you how it’s done, here it is.
But before I start, I’d just like to let you know that I am no crochet guru. Not by a long shot. I am kind of a psychotic, hysterical, constant trial and error experiencing person who, despite that all, loves her yarns and her hook.

Which in short means that I really hope the following sentences make at least some sense.

Here’s what you need.

Two yarns of different color – the bulkier the yarn the bulkier the swirl.

You also need one hook that will work well with your yarns, a needle and a pair of scissors.

Let’s pretend that is not a hair cutting scissors.

Please.

The whole swirl has only four rows. This is the first one:

1. Row: 43 ch (ch = chain stitch).

2. Row: 1 dc (dc = double crochet stitch) into the fourth chain stitch from the hook, 1 dc into each remaining chain stitch.

3. Row: 3 ch, 1 dc into the first stitch from the hook, 1 dc in next stitch, 2 dc into next stitch, *1 dc in next stitch, 2 dc in following stitch*, repeat *…* till the end of the row.

4. Row: with a changed yarn color, 2 ch, 1 sc (sc = single crochet stitch) in the first stitch, 1 ch, *1 sc in next stitch, 1 ch*, repeat *…*.

Finish off.

 

You have just created a funny curly strip.

Now twist the strip into a nice shape.

Using a needle and some yarn, sew some stitches in the middle and along the edges only to fixate the whole swirl.

I made only three stitches and that was it.

I can imagine these on scarves, slippers, headbands or as a brooch even.
Hopefully, I didn’t break your brain.

Enjoy, dear friends!

Love,
Petra

Bulldog Buddy

bulldog-buddy-I

Please meet my dear bulldog buddy.

His name is… hmmm… Bulldog (oh, I know, I’m really creative).

He is a bit camera shy.

Let’s forgive him that.

I like to pull his face…

… in many different directions.

And you know what?

He is not just a usual bulldog buddy.

There’s something more to him.

He is usually full of some colorful gorgeous stuff like this.

Now you can see why I love my bulldog buddy so much – he is just so helpful.

I’m sorry buddy – today we’re going to remove your guts.

These have already served us well.

There’s a new project ahead of us.

Here we go…

Black and white – does it evoke anything in your mind?

What about a panda?

Well, we’ll see soon…

… and my good old precious hook.

Actually, that might be even older than me.

It is a precious gift from my Mom.

She bought it quite a while ago and used it to make many beautiful things.

OK… I’ll give you some rest now.

But not for too long buddy, not for too long.
