My boys have a ton of these cozy crochet slippers in a variety of colors. They make a great gift for the whole family and are perfect to make as extras for school or camping.
This fun pattern needs less than a skein of yarn and is an easy way to use up some of your yarn stash!
- J Crochet Hook
- Worsted Weight Yarn
- Yarn Needle
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
st – stitch
I have instructions for a wide foot with the pattern for a narrow foot in italics and a child’s foot in bold. You will have to try the slipper on to determine how long you want it to be.
Gauge and hook size are not super important for this project as the yarn will stretch as you wear the slippers. When in doubt make a smaller slipper as I have a pair that have stretched and keep slipping off.
Free slipper pattern:
1 – ch 8 (ch 6 for child), sl st into the first ch, creating a magic circle
2 – ch 1, work 12 hdc into the circle (10 hdc / 8 hdc), sl st to join, turn
3 – ch 1, work 2 hdc into each st around (24 hdc / 20 hdc / 16 hdc), sl st to join, turn
4 to 6 – ch 2, dc into each st around, sl st to join, turn
Here we have created the toe of our right slipper.
Let’s continue to create our comfy slippers!
7 – ch 2, work one dc into each stitch around minus 4 stitches (leaving an ankle opening), ch 2, turn
8 to 12 – dc into each st around, ch 2, turn (20 dc, 16 dc, 12 dc)
Continue in this manner until the slipper is the length that you want it. For the boys, a child’s size ten, I had six rounds after the toe piece. For myself, a women’s size 8, I had eight rounds after the toe piece.
When you have completed your rounds to the desired length, fold the slipper inside out and sew the sides together using your yarn needle. Sc around the opening, tie off, sew the yarn tail into the slipper with a tapestry needle and you are finished!
You can easily change up the look of this easy pattern by using chunky yarn, pom poms or a variety of bulky yarn in your favorite color. Keep your toes toasty on a cold winter day with this simple slipper pattern!
