Hook size H (5.00 mm) and your favorite soft yarn
Let’s Get Started
Chain 22-25 (for toddlers) a little less for babies and little more for bigger kids. 30-35 for women, 38 for men or nearly as long as the foot/shoe of the person you are making them for.
Row 1: Double crochet in the second chain from hook and then each chain across (go through both loops) chain two and turn.
Row 2: Now double crochet in each double crochet across, chaining two and turn.
Rows 3-11: (Of course this width can be adapted to the individual foot size), Repeat what you did in row 2, end off.
So basically you’ve now made a rectangle.
Fold in half lengthwise and slip-stitch the toe and then around the back and about half way on the top leaving enough room for the foot to get in (remember it will stretch so it can be a bit snug at first). Backstitch a bit to hold your stitches.
You can add a pom-pom or even a cuff with a tie if you wanted. They make up really quickly and are so fun and cozy!
Enjoy your slippers!
Cute, cute, cute! Definitely going to give it a try.
Very cute! I might even try it. I’ll call you if I get stuck on something. Or maybe I’ll just call you, hehehe!
Hey, I LOVE these. Crocheting I can do. Do you perchance have a pattern anywhere for those socks that you crochet and put beads on? Ellie has a pair — her “jangly socks” — that she loves but it out growing. I can crochet, I just don’t know about the beads.
SWEET!!!! Thanks Hannah! I can’t wait to get it!
