Watching the video is helpful for visual learners who need to see a pattern worked up, for beginners, or for those of you who have never made slippers and would like a run-down before tackling the new pattern below.
Quick Crochet Slippers
Yarn: One pair will require between 85 yds/78 cm for the smallest size and 220 yds/201 m for the largest size. A soft and washable bulky weight yarn (#5) is recommended. Alternatively, hold two thinner strands together.
Hook: US K/10-1/2 /6.5 mm or hook needed to obtain gauge. For best results, use any hook size that gives you the gauge indicated below.
Blunt yarn needle
Non-slip outsoles: I used a scrap of shelf liner (the kind with holes). I cut a piece to fit the bottom of the slipper and attached it with a sewing needle and thread. Non-slip outsoles are shown on the bottom of the slippers in the image below.
Fleece inner soles: After turning the slipper inside out and measuring the insole, I cut a remnant of polar fleece fabric to fit; I attached the fleece with a sewing needle and thread.
Slipper Pattern Details:
PROJECT LEVEL: Easy
FINISHED LENGTH: approximately 5 (6-1/4, 7-1/2, 8-3/4, 10, 11-1/4)" / 13(16, 19, 22, 25, 28) cm.
For best fit, slipper length should equal foot length. Finished sizes correspond roughly to Toddler (Child, Older Child, Youth/Adult S, Adult M, Adult L). For sizes above Adult L, add 3 chains to your foundation per each additional 1-1/4"/1 cm desired.
GAUGE: In half-double crochet (hdc), 12 sts and 15 rows = 5"/12.5 cm square.
- Left and right slippers are identical. To have opposite colors like the smallest pair shown, remember to switch color placement for second slipper.
- To indicate right side (RS), place a marker on Row 1 except for sizes 7 ½” /19 cm and 10”/22 cm. For those two sizes only, place the RS marker on Row 2.
- Color changes are your choice and are not provided in pattern.
- Stitches used are US slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc) and half double crochet (hdc). For UK crocheters, the equivalents are single crochet, double crochet, and half treble crochet. Please adjust your pattern as required.
