Simple Slippers

By Kathleen Watkins

(C) K. Watkins 2005

j hook
any bulky or 3 ply yarn.. Just remember, if you use bulky yarn, the slipper will be thicker and tighter

Slipper: Make 2

Row 1: Ch 21. sc in 2nd ch from hook and in ch st across (20 sts) ch 1, turn.

Rows 2-14: sc in next 20 sts, ch 1, turn (20 sts) at the end of round 12 do not ch 1.

Do not finish off. Fold in half lengthwise and through both layers, sc tog first 10 sts leaving remaining 7 sts unworked–this is your foot hole, the seam is in the top of the slipper. Finish off, weave in loose ends.

Sew up heel and toe portions of slipper. Finish off and weave in loose ends.

Finishing: Starting at heel, evenly crochet 22 sc around slipper opening, then crochet a second row.

Nots: for a more bootie like slipper, on the finishing round, crochet as many rows as you desire to work into bootie shape.

This pattern is easily adjustable:

For a longer slipper, simply make a longer starting chain– about ½ inch longer than the foot slippers are intended for.

For a wider slipper, simply make more rows– enough to go around the foot the slipper is intended for.
