What a nice, quick slipper pattern. I especially appreciate all the ideas for embellishing the slippers the designer has provided at the end of the pattern. Ive used several of them already, but I am loving those sneaker ties. I never would have thought to go in that direction. Great tip about doubling the standard worsted to make a chunky yarn, too.

This is a very easy pattern to follow and would be a great starter project for a beginner crocheter. When they master the slipper, then they can practice on different ways to embellish a project to make it more appealing and more customized to the person that will be wearing the slipper.

I love this pattern, but how do size, I want to make small,med, large and extra large for local nursing home. Thank you!

The gauge is shown so you should be able to guesstimate size from there.

Love this pattern. Easy .. Quick. And fits good. Thank you for sharing this with us. Made myself a pair working a pair for my daughter now.

This looks like a quick and easy way to crochet slippers! Some patterns have you make the sole separate from the top and sides, then you have to stitch them all together. That's not bad but this way, all in one piece, is much easier! And a great way to use up leftover yarn from other projects.

Can you guys think about getting the Print Friendly buttons for your patterns please? It is getting really hard to print from your existing print button. By the way Print friendle is free for you to use as well.

Melissa, if you are using Chrome browser then you can install the print friendly extension that will allow you to print any web page as a PDF. I use it all the time.

What a great idea for a gal whom you don't know what to get! I consider myself lucky that I know how to crochet, because I am never at a loss for what I can gift to a friend or an aunt or grandmother. I agree that just using a bulky yarn is the way to go because then you don't have to struggle with keeping the proper tension of two strands together.

These are adorable. But If you aren't comfortable using two yarns held together just get bulky yarn instead. They make some very pretty variegated bulky yarn that would work very well and use a hook one size smaller. I have done that many times and they came out just fine. Thanks for the pattern.

I use this at my end of year stocking suffers with my left over yarn balls from other projects! Just love this pattern! And the designer too Emmy is a truly good person and works hard!

Thanks for the awesome tip mulberrygalprincess s! I almost passed by this one because my ole arthur (arthritis) doesn't make it easy for me to hold two yarns together. Now I'll go yarn shopping for the bulkier yarn and use one size smaller hook. Yippee...warmer toes this winter...for me and maybe others too!

Can I do this with a 6mm hook and thick yarn?

Is there one more chain and turn before you slip stitch the slipper closed at the back?

don't know how many stitches across in starting the sides??

The printer instructions say 9 double crochet and the video says 9 single crochets which is right?

It can be either one! I do sc but she does as well I think she made a mistake there, but it is easily corrected.

I made myself a pair in less than 2 hrs I used some leftover yarn from a baby blanket it was verigated and a chunky yarn so I didn't double the yarn these are so soft and warm I just crocheted a tiny length of yarn & tied a bow on the front of my slippers I took a pic i'll put up later. If you need some slippers make these for yourself they are easy & cute!

Super easy and fun; sending to the mom's to be with crochet baby items.

Why can't I print this pattern?

Hello, Simply click the "Print" button at the top of the page. It's right under the title. Hope that helps!

nice n easy to make, perfect gift for my daughters

In the typed version she has nine double crochet, but in the video she states single. I do believe it is single. I just kept going around and not doing as she has directed. Worked out great. I made a pair in an hour. I did use an N hook. I have a size 7 foot and this pattern worked for me. I made one for my husband but in the beginning i made 10 single crochets which came out to 20 for the tube part. His shoe size is 10. Turned out great!!

These are the best, they fit really well, they are nice and thick and best of all so easy to crochet

Have made several pairs (Christmas presents)! What a nice pattern! THANK YOU

I have been crocheting for almost 60 years. This is the first time I have ever heard of an M hook. Had to pay through the nose for it. Otherwise this seems to be a really simple pattern, only the written instructions do not say to use the chain one as a stitch.

an N hook is 9mm. I think there might me a typo. I have never heard of an M ???

This is so awesome. thank you thank you for sharing! Making this today!!!

I love the videos they help tremendously. Thank you so much.

I noticed written pattern says to start with 9 double crochet and she just starts with single crochet so I'm thinking that's just a misprint? I was trying to count and kept adding a stitch, I'm not sure why. I understand how to make them longer, but how to make the for a wider foot?

I have been crocheting for 30 plus years, and this woman was great! Three cheers to her! i hope to see more on her!

How would it work with on strand of yarn?

I have made similar slippers like these and I tried to make them once with only one strand of doesn't work, the size comes out way off from what they should be. If I remember correctly, they were way smaller and couldn't be used so I ripped them out.

Enjoyed watching the video, it made it easier for me to make the slippers. This is the pattern my grandmother used when she made all the grandkids slippers every year. We all miss her slippers. I was looking for it. Thank you.

How do I increase to mak slipper larger

The Pattern says "Size 9 (US M). My size 9 is an 'N' US Boye. Is that the right size hook? Thank You for the Pattern and Video!

This video is great! She explains and demonstrates crocheting slippers very well. Easy to understand (which is good for me, being a beginner), without over-explaining or under-explaining. I'm definately going to try this pattern. Thanks so much! :o)

This video is great

This will be a great project for Christmas presents.

I really like this pattern. I would suggest you start with a magic circle and when the slipper is done, single crochet around the top---looks much neater. Thanks, Sug.

This was great. I am confident that I can make slippers now. (smiles) Thank you !!

Video was great. I love making slippers. Great job.

how do you adjust the size for a lady's size 8?

just keep adding rows until it is long enough then close up the back

I am sure going to try my hand with the slippers

How do you adjust to make different sizes?

these slippers look very easy ... but I just don't understand why she would turn the project on the toe area.. having been a crocheter since I was 6, I just don't understand the need to turn... in fact I think I will just work in the round until it comes to the part that you have to turn in the back.

That makes more sense to me, also. There was also a comment about beginning with the magic circle instead of the 2ch, which I like--I can close up the toes better. But the video is great, and I love the easy pattern!

Super cute Im trying:)

Super easy! Super fast! Super fun to do! The you tube video helps so much...I just sat in front of the computer and did my first pair...have made many already for family. A good way to use up that extra yarn. Thanks I love it!

nice easy pattern and well explained thanks
