Keep your feet warm with the Simple Crochet Slippers. As the name implies, these crochet slippers are worked easy; that's because they are worked entirely from single crochet stitches. These crochet shoes fit teens and adults. There is a matching free crochet pattern for baby slippers.

Skill Level: Easy +

You will need to be familiar with working both in rounds and flat in rows to complete these slippers.

Other than that, it's all very basic.

Required Materials

  • Yarn: 2 (2, 2, 2) skeins Knit Picks, Swish Worsted [100% superwash merino wool; 110 yards; 50 grams; worsted weight], Color: “Squirrel Heather”. You may substitute any worsted weight fiber in place of the suggested yarn. Note that a machine washable yarn is generally preferable for footwear. You’ll need approximately 165 yards (75 grams) of your main color to make the second slipper size (shoe size 6-9).
  • Crochet Hook: US size G/4.5mm hook. Adjust hook sizes as necessary to achieve gauge listed below.
  • Extras: Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Sizing

Gauge: 8 sc and 10 rnds = 2” using size G/4.5mm hook.

Finished Measurements:

  • Length (toe to back of heel): 9 (10, 11, 11)”
  • Width (around ball of foot): 7 (8, 9, 10)”
  • To Fit US Women’s Shoe Sizes: 3-6 (6-9, 8-12, 8-12 wide)

Shoe sizes are given as a reference only. It is best to measure actual foot circumference and length whenever possible to determine desired fit.

  

Crochet Abbreviations Used in This Pattern

Before You Begin, Important Pattern Notes:

Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parenthesis.

When only one number appears it applies to all sizes.

Rounds 1 to 4 make up the toe portion of the slipper. Rows 1 and 2 will take you through the sole of the foot to the back of the heel. The final rows create a heel flap. The heel flap will need to be sewn in place before moving on the the Slipper Edging section.
