I know I keep creating easy crochet slipper patterns, but I keep finding ways to make the patterns easier. Really.
This is what I call the base slipper. My goal is to create other patterns that can be used to embellish this simple pattern.
I wear a size 7 wide, but this is so simple that it doesn’t matter what size you wear because you make it to your foot size as you go.
I am using Peaches and Cream dishrag yarn because it is easy to see in photos.
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
slp = slip stitch
Note: ch2 always counts as the first whatever (half double crochet or single crochet).
Row 1: in a magic circle, ch 2, 7 hdc, slp in the top of the 2 ch.
Row 2: ch 2, hdc in same space, 2 hdc in each space around, slp.
Row 3: ch 2, sc in same space, *1 sc in next space, 2 sc in next space, repeat around* slp.
Row 4: ch 2, hdc in next space, 2 hdc in next space, *1 hdc, 1 hdc, 2 hdc around* slp.
Row 5: ch 2, *sc in each space around* slp.
Row 6: ch 2, *hdc in each space around* slp.
MEASURE: repeat rows 5 and 6 until the slipper covers the area between the balls of your feet and your ankle.
Now this is the only tricky part for beginners, but it’s not hard, just read the whole thing.
This is where you make the bottom of the slipper, the sides of the slipper and leave an opening for your foot.
This is kind of like rows 5 and 6 except you don’t slip stitch, you turn and go back the other way.
Row A: ch 2, *sc in each space around* turn.
Row B: ch 2, *hdc in each space around* turn.
Repeat Rows A and B until the slipper is just a hair longer than your foot. Then slip stitch the back together to close and fasten off.
I single crocheted a row or 2 of white around the top, but that’s not necessary. My goal is to make future tutorials on embellishing, but I’m in the middle of another easy slipper pattern at the moment and I need to finish that one so folks will have the choice of base slippers.
