Update 4/25/2013… After thousands of hits on this post and MANY requests for my revisions to the pattern link below, I have created my own basic pattern for this slipper: found here, and also created a whole post on tips and tricks for customizing your slippers for your feet: found here. Enjoy reading the original post below, but make sure you check out the new posts on these slippers if you want to create your own!!
Happy 4th of July!! I’m sure you all have fantastic plans for today so I’m going to make this short and sweet so you can get to them!
I made myself some cute little crochet slippers and thought they turned out awesome so I wanted to share! I’ve never owned slippers before, but there is this time of day for me, between getting out of bed and taking a shower, where I don’t want to waste a new pair of socks but i want my feet to be a little cozier… the perfect time for slippers!
I followed a free online tutorial (although modified a bit for my feet… I didn’t want them to be so high over my toes) and they were super easy! They fit well and I love the colors I chose! I think I am going to embellish them soon. Maybe a button. Or crochet flowers? We’ll see. Enjoy the photos and have a safe and super fun 4th!! <3 Sam (SEE UPDATES ABOVE AND/OR BELOW POST PHOTOS FOR MORE INFO ON THESE SLIPPERS)
UPDATE: After a few questions I wanted to add an update to this post! A little more info on the modifications I made to the pattern link above. For my size 7-7.5 feet, I crocheted 9 rounds at the toe instead of 13 as the pattern calls for, and only 22 rows total (including the toe rounds). Also, instead of the sc and chain stitch around the edges I did dc around the edges. I hope that helps you crochet a pair of your own cozy slippers!
