"Crochet Slippers"

My crochet slippers are the perfect gift to keep little feet warm this winter.

These crochet slippers slip on like a sock. They are really more like sock shoes, comfortable enough to walk around in before bed and to remain in for a cosy night’s sleep.

Children might like their sock shoes decorated with pompoms, rosettes or crochet butterflies, or a monogram initial.

Free Crochet Slipper Pattern

Make 2 alike.

Large Motif

Begin by working 4ch and join with a ss to form a ring.

1st Round: Work 3ch, 2tr into ring, *2ch, 3tr into ring, repeat from * twice more, ss into 3rd of 3ch.

2nd Round: Work 3ch, *1tr into each tr to corner, [2tr, 2ch, 2tr] into corner sp, repeat from * finishing with 1tr into each tr, 1ss into 3rd of 3ch.

Work in this manner until 4 rows have been completed. Fasten off.

Join chosen pieces of contrast together and work 1 more row in pattern. Fasten off.

Small Motif

Make 3.

Work as 1st Round of large motif, and last Contrast Round. Fasten off.

Make up as for adult slipper pattern, easing motifs to fit so that corners meet where they should.

Make the lace by crocheting a length of chain 2 strands thick to the length desired and thread through the sps across the center of the 1st and 2nd small motifs. If you have plenty of yarn left, you may like to make a twisted cord instead of a length of chain.

You may easily vary the design by working alternate rows of Contrast and Main Color, or by using up left over bits and pieces of yarn creating a technicolor effect. Matching them to pyjamas or dressing gown is a nice idea too.

All the stitches and techniques used in my Free Crochet Slippers Pattern are fully detailed and shown clearly in my “CROCHET MADE EASY” e-book. More information on my e-book contents page. HAPPY CROCHETING!
