I have found that slippers are a huge hit with crocheting. I have also found that it is hard to find a slipper that doesn’t look funny when all finished. I think I have round up a few that y’all would enjoy. Remember, just click the picture of the slippers for the pattern page. You can also click on the designers name and it will direct you to their website. Good luck, and happy hooking!
Winter Chic Slippers – YARNutopia
I fell in love with this slipper because of the fact that the cuff at first look, looks like a puff stitch, which makes it thicker towards the top. You could do any color combination you’d like. These would be a great stash buster! Designer has made a video tutorial if you follow along videos better than a written pattern. She does also have the written pattern as well; just scroll a little further down on the pattern site.
To make these beauties Nadia used *Red Heart Yarns Chic Sheep. She need 3 skeins of your main color, and 1 skein of the 2 other colors. You will need your 5.00 mm crochet hook. Use a hook size that is smaller than 5 to make a smaller size slipper, and use a hook size that is bigger than 5 to make the slippers bigger. This is rated for a beginner level. You will need to know how to do a 5 DC Cluster (she has instructions, if you don’t).
Crochet Plaid Slippers – Whistle & Ivy
I have actually made this slipper. 6 pairs in fact. They are super easy and quick to work up. I’ve used a lot of her work in our previous blog posts. I’m sorry, I’m a sucker for buffalo plaid. Like I’ve stated before, if you don’t know how to do a plaid stitch, she does have a tutorial on how to get this look accomplished.
The toe area of the slipper is crocheted in the round until, you get to the heel area. At that point its done in rows, and sew’n together at the back of the heel. You do carry your yarn when changing colors so that you don’t have so many ends to weave in. Its all done in the basic crochet stitches using your 6 mm hook (J). She does have multiple sizes written up. Toddler sizes 5/6 and 7/8, Kids size 13/1, and Women 7/8. But can still make smaller or bigger by adding or not doing a row.
Tink Slippers – Don’t Eat the Paste
These were inspired by the one and only Tinkerbell from the Disney movie Peter Pan. I saw the picture for this and knew instantly that some of our members were going to make this. I can think of 2 in particular. Pictured is the designer’s daughter. Pattern was made for a medium sized women’s foot. However, she does include how to go up in size.
You will need your “G” hook, Red Heart Super Saver in Spring Green and Red Heart Shimmer in Snow. Amount of yarn is not listed. 1 skein of each is more than plenty. Now, who’s going to make some?
Winter’s Warmth Slipper Socks – Fiber Flux Blog
**The Grinch Scarf! Thats what came to mind when I saw this slipper. I absolutely think this slipper would compliment the scarf wonders. Fiber Flux has the written pattern and also a video tutorial. I know that in the past working with fluffy yarn may be difficult for some crocheter’s to see their stitches. I’ve learned to just go with the flow. Haha. You could make this in any color combination you wanted; with or with out the fluffy tops.
You will need your 6.5 mm crochet hook, 1 ball of Red Heart With Love, and 1 ball of Red Heart Fur. The slipper measures 14 inches tall when completed with a 9 inch circumference. No special stitches needed to make these. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be digging through my scrap yarn to make a pair of these.
Candy Corn Socks, Child Sizes – Crystalized Designs
Who’s getting ready for Halloween? No, I’m just kidding. It’s a few days till Valentines Day. But no, in all seriousness, just look at these!
Are you the one that loves Candy Corn candy?! They are my weakness. The color choice on the yarn is amazing on how well it actually matches the candy. She does have the pattern available in adult and baby sizes as well, I just came across the child ones first.
She uses a worsted weight yarn; Red Heart With Love in White, Mango, and Daffodil, and the 5.0 mm crochet hook. No special stitches needed to make these. I’ve got about 3 pairs I need to make; 2 child, 1 adult. Happy hooking!
Apache Tears Slippers – Sue’s Crochet & Knitting
We have all seen the wonderful afghan pattern for the Apache Tears. Why not have a pair of slippers to match your blanket?!? Sue has designed a pair of slippers to fit a size 9-9.5 woman shoe. Just like previous slippers; go up a hook size for bigger slippers or go down a hook size for smaller slippers.
To make these slippers you must be familiar with the decreasing stitches. You will be doing a hdc2tog and sc2tog. You will also be going through the back loop of the stitches unless otherwise stated. To make these slippers you will need your 5.00 mm crochet hook and a worsted weight yarn. I’m going to have to learn this pattern.
Easy Crochet Slipper Socks – Make and Do Crew
It’s funny that I came across these again. I’ve actually got to make these for my dad in Denver Bronco’s team colors. They were the only pair of slippers/socks that he liked that I was able to find. They look so comfy and warm. Especially love the yarn choice she used.
To make these slippers you will need Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in 2 colors; 1 of Contrasting Color and 2 of the Main Color. You will need your 6.5 and 8.0 mm crochet hook. The 8.0 mm is used for the beginning chain. You will need to be familiar with a front post double crochet as well as decreasing stitches.
Crocheted Soccasins – Megan Mills
Have you ever heard of a Soccasin? Me either, these are cute though. Its a slipper with a built in sock. I love the look of these. These are child sized, I didn’t realize that when I e-mailed the designer asking to use photograph; its okay though. If you’re skilled enough, you could adjust to make these in and adult size. These are made to be a little snug on the feet. The sock part was made to hug the ankles when folded over.
You will be working in the back loops unless otherwise stated. The abbreviations for the pattern are a little different, I was able to figure them out. There is a ‘special join’ that she does for this. She has the written instructions as well as a video. You will need 2 balls of knitting wool, 1 ball of 4-ply baby wool your 3.5 and 3.0 mm crochet hook.
The pictures below are brought to us by a few of the designers that have given me permission to use any photograph from their designs on our blog. All you have to do is click on the picture for the pattern.
