As you can see, I’ve made them for everything that walks on two legs at this place. My friend Lynnette has asked for the pattern since last year and I guess I’m about ready to try my hand at writing it all down. The pattern I’m sharing will be for a woman’s slipper. Be kind–I’m new in these parts.

I”m using Peaches and Cream 100% cotton–it isn’t as sturdy as wool, but I like the feel better. Choose the yarn you like most against your skin–that will be the best. I use an “I” or “J” hook.

Row 19: Decrease–Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop–four times. Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook–for toe.

Row 20: Decrease this row by drawing up a loop through remaining stitches as one…

Pull stitch through all remaining loops on hook.Fasten off.

With needle and yarn, sew the top part of slipper foot together leaving the ankle area open. Sew up the back of slipper as well. Turn slipper right side out.

Chain two 65 stitch “laces” and thread them through the loops at the top of the ankle area of slipper.

Tie in a bow.

These slippers make wonderful Christmas presents and can be made to fit any foot just by increasing or decreasing the starting chain and making more or less rows to fit the individual foot.

  1. I was just wearing my slippers like this a couple of days ago! They are sooo great! Thanks for making them… no I just need to learn to crochet myself so I can make all these awesome things too!!!

    Happy Doughnut Day is right!!! I had a chocolate Dunford Doughnut!!! ***:D*** Anyone else celebrating with me?!? 😉

  2. Ok, could have totally done without the picture of a whole box of donuts–even if it is National Donut Day!!!
    May I suggest a link with the directions in a printer-friendly format, on a single page so a person could crochet in front of their fav shows, like CSI: Miami or watch Capt. Jack swashbuckle about…..

  3. Yes, I know that would be more helpful. But sadly, that is an April sort of thing. We’ll do it though, and I’ll appreciate your feedback on the pattern.
    Go Horatio! sigh…
