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.
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 15 – 21: turn; 3 ch; 1 dc into second stitch from hook; continue 20 dc (1 dc into each next dc)
Row 22: turn; 3 ch; 1 dc into first stitch from hook; continue 21 dc (1 dc into each next dc); another 1 dc into last stitch
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.
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.)
