Easy Crochet Slippers

Cold weather is on it’s way in! That is, unless you live in California where it’s in and then it’s out and then it’s in again. But yeah, so cold weather. I am so down for it. One of my favorite things to do when it starts getting cold is throw on my batman onesie and some cozy slippers, and curl up with a good book and a hot cup of cocoa. Oh, and the cat. We can’t forget kitty cuddles. Does anyone else have a cold weather tradition?

Anyway…. these easy crochet slippers are on my “handmake for people” christmas gift list. They take a few hours to make and are great for getting rid of excess yarn. For these easy crochet slippers, I used left over yarn from my hogwarts  house ear warmers so now I have matching sets! But like I was saying, not only are they super cozy and easy, they make great gifts. Because everyone needs cozy footware.

Row 1: Start with a magic circle and HDC 12. Pull magic circle tight and join by slst into top loop of first HDC. This will complete your foundation circle. (EDIT: If you’re working with worsted weight yarn, this is worked with two strands. If you’re working with chunky yarn, only use one)

Row 2: HDC 2 into each HDC around. Repeat until end of circle (24). Join with slst into top loop of first HDC. ch 2

Row 3: HDC 1 into each HDC around. Repeat until end of circle (24). Join with slst into top loop of first HDC. ch 2

Row 4-10: Repeat round 3.

Add more rows for a longer foot.

Row 11: HDC 1 into each HDC leaving 6 stitches unworked. ch 2 and turn work

Row 12-15: Repeat Round 11

Row 16: sc into 9 stitches or about half way into the flat piece of your work. Fold in half with the inside faceing outward and slst together. ch 2

Row 17: HDC around the cuff of the slipper. You’ll have anywhere from 24 to 30 stitches. I try to stick to 24 for a more standard cuff, and larger for a looser one. Whatever you’re comfortable with.

Row 18: HDC into each HDC around. Repeat until end of circle. Joint slst into top loop of HDC. ch 2

You can keep adding rows until you get a cuff of the desired height. I find 5-6 rows are good for a fold over cuff.

Once you’re finished, cut your yarn and fasten off after the last slst to join rows. Weave in ends using your yarn needle.

Wear or wrap in ribbon and a cute gift tag for a beautiful hand made present!

  1. Those little slippers are so cute. Not sure my crochet skills are up to them. Love the multi coloured ones.

    • They’re actually a really easy project for beginners. I’m intermediate at best. It took me a few tries and a lot of youtube videos to figure it out, but once you have the basic stitches down you can make almost anything!

  2. Fabulous, now I know how to use up some of that worsted weight yarn that I have hanging around! thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!

  3. Thanks for pattern. Are these made with 2 strands of thread?

  4. I love this pattern and hope to crochet it at a later date. I just have 1 question. This question pertains to Row 11. As written, it says to crochet 18 HDC into each HDC around leaving 6 unworked stitches. Is it meant to be to crochet 1HDC into the next 18 stitches with leaving 6 stitche s unworked? Your clarification on this would be appreciated.

  5. Just like you said, super easy and super warm. I am teaching someone to crochet from starting with the chain stitch and this is her first project. She is loving it1 Oh by the way, Row 11 is a hoot! Can you imagine someone putting 18 stitches in each stitch until there is only 6 left? Talk about ruffles!!! and then repeating??!!! LOL

  6. Would love to try these, but I need to print out the pattern and can’t find a link to do so….otherwise, my printer says it would require 13 sheets of paper. Am I missing something? (I tried to highlight the section I wanted, did a ctrl P and wanted to print just the selection I highlighted, but for some reason my printer does not give me this option on this project)

    • Well thats not good! Be on the lookout in your email and I’ll send you an easier to print copy. Thanks so much for checking out my blog!!!

  7. Love this pattern,I work in a nursing home and made these for some of my ladies,I did put puffy paint on the bottom so they wouldn’t slip….

    Thanks so much…😀

  8. I love these! I just started my second pair this afternoon. What a great way to use ends of skeins, technicolor slippers!
