Women's Slippers - Free Crochet Pattern

Let me think. How many slippers have I made to fill my family's Christmas order?  Yes I know. It's just that I have been so busy drawing for my Etsy Shop that I haven't had much time for crocheting.

I did manage to complete another pair of women's slippers and I even wrote the crochet pattern for you.



Women's Slippers - Free Crochet Pattern


Materials
·   
1 skein of yarn (364 yards) for the main color; yarn weight: worsted 10 ply (medium 4). 
Small amount of yarn in second color.
5 mm crochet hook
Tapestry needle to sew in the ends
Scissors

Pattern

Starting at the Toe
Row 1 – CH 1 and 8 HDC in the first chain from the hook. Join with a SS.
Row 2 – CH 1 and 2 HDC in each stitch around (16 stitches). Join with a SS.
Row 3 – CH 1 and 2 HDC in the next stitch and 1 HDC in the next stitch. Continue with 2 DC in the next stitch and DC in the next until you reach the end (24 stitches). Join with a SS.

* This pattern will fit a foot size of about 7 or 8. You can make the slippers larger by simply adding rows at this point. Each row equals approximately a half size. So, for a size 9, add two rows.

Fold the slipper in half, using the seam created when joining the rows with a SS. This will be the bottom of the slipper.
Join the yarn two stitches in. This leaves a total of 4 stitches on the top that aren’t worked.

Row 10 to Row 17 – HDC in each stitch across. CH 1 and turn.
* This pattern will fit a foot size of about 6 or 7. You can make the slippers larger by simply adding rows at this point. I believe each row will equal about a half size. So, for a size 8, add two rows.
Row 18 – HDC in each stitch across. Tie off.

Back of Heel
Using a tapestry needle, sew the back heel of the slipper together with the long end of yarn. Just weave the yarn through and tie off at the bottom. Weave in the extra yarn on the bottom of the slipper with the tapestry needle.

Row 20 to Row 24 – CH 1 and SC in the next 31 stitches. Join with a SS.
Row 25 to Row 32 – CH 2 and HDC in the next 31 stitches. Join with a SS.
Row 33 – CH 2 and HDC in the next 31 stitches. Join with a SS. Tie off and weave tail into slipper.

    1. Thanks Lisa. It's probably the stripes running around the slipper.
