Here is the promised slipper pattern.
They are very easy and fast to crochet. I made a truck load for xmas presents.
They make Great Stocking stuffers!
Hook size G or H (I used H)
4 ply yarn—scraps work great!
Use two strands of yarn as it makes for a warmer slipper.
Basically you crochet a rectangle large enough to wrap around your foot.
Ch 33 (or as long as the foot)
Row 1: DC in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across (go thru both loops) ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: DC in each dc across, ch 3 and turn.
Rows 3-13: Repeat row 2, end with a 12 inch tail of yarn.
Now you have your rectangle to work with.
Gathering the toe: Weave the tail in and out at the end of the slipper with the 12 inch tail.
Fold the slipper in half lengthwise. This will happen naturally from the gathering of the toe. Starting from the gathered end, stitch halfway towards the other end of the slipper.
Now you can stitch up the heel. Finish off and cut yarn.
You can now add a cuff to the top of the slippers to make them more…snuggly.
Or you can just leave it as it is and you’re good to go!
Optional added cuff:
I crocheted in the back loops only.
Crochet one row of sc around the foot opening.
Join with a sl st to the first sc, ch 3, dc in each sc and join with sl st to top of first dc.
Continue to do this to form a cuff, for as many rows as you like! It’s up to You.
