Fancy making some slippers?  Here’s the pattern I devised for the Mary-Jane slippers I made for my friend.  Each slipper is made in one piece, so there are no seams, and they are made in double crochet (single crochet if you’re American).

Please note: this free pattern is not for resale. All rights reserved. No part of the pattern may be reproduced in any form. The written instructions, photographs, design, and pattern are intended for personal, non-commercial use only i.e. you are not permitted to sell any items made using this pattern.

I have checked and re-checked the pattern, but if you use it and find any mistakes, or if anything is unclear, please do not hesitate to email me at thelittlehousebythesea at hotmail dot com.  Oh, and if you make these, please add a pic of them to the Flickr group.

Materials

  • Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton or any other Aran weight yarn – 50g/ 82m of main colour and a few metres (about 8.5 m) in contrasting colour
  • Hook size 5 mm
  • Four pieces of contrasting yarn to use as markers
  • 2 buttons – the ones I used have a diameter of 1.5 cm.
  • Large blunt ended needle

Stitches used

  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet (single crochet if you’re American)
  • dc2tog – double crochet two stitches together (decrease)

Gauge

12 stitches and 18 rows to 10 cm or 4 inches measured over double crochet using a 5 mm hook.

Sizing

At the gauge stated above, the slippers will fit UK size 4 – 6.5 (EU size 37 – 39.5, US size 6.5 – 9).  They might fit a UK size 7 (EU 40, US 9.5) but I haven’t been able to get someone with this size feet to try them on to check.

It doesn’t matter too much if your gauge is not exact because the slippers are designed to stretch to fit, but you don’t want your gauge to be too different as then your slippers might not fit.  If your feet at are at the smaller end of the range and you are getting a couple more than 12 stitches to 10cm/ 4 inches, then the slippers will probably still fit, especially if you are using wool rather than cotton.  If not, try a larger hook size.  If your feet are at the larger end of the range and you are getting fewer stitches to 10 cm/ 4 inches, then, again, the slippers will probably still fit, but if not, try a smaller hook size.

METHOD

Toe-cap

The toe-cap is worked in one continuous round, or spiral as follows:

Foundation chain: using 5 mm hook, chain 6.

Round 1: dc into second chain from hook, dc into next 3 chains, 3 dc into last chain, then continue double-crocheting up the other side of chain as follows: dc into next three chains, 2dc in last chain (12 stitches).

Picture 1: the first round

Blog - picture 1

Round 2: dc into each of next 5 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into each of next 5 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch (16 stitches)

Round 3: dc into each of next 6 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into each of next 7 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into next stitch (20 stitches)

Round 4: dc into each of next 7 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into each of next 9 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into next 2 stitches (24 stitches)

Round 5: dc into each stitch (24 stitches)

Round 6: dc into each stitch (24 stitches)

Sole

The sole continues on from the toe-cap, and is worked in rows as follows:

Row 1: dc into first 8 stitches of round 6.  Mark first and last stitch in the row, and also the two stitches of the toe-cap on either side of the row, as shown in picture 2.  1 chain. Turn. (8 stitches)

Picture 2: stitches marked with contrasting yarn

Blog - picture 2

Row 2: dc into each stitch. 1 chain. Turn. (8 stitches)

Row 25: dc into first 2 stitches, dc2tog, dc into next 2 stitches, dc2tog, dc into last 2 stitches. 1 chain.  Turn. (8 stitches)

Upper

You will now work the rest of the slipper in rounds.

Round 1: with bottom of sole facing you, dc into each row end (26 stitches) dc into each stitch on toe-cap (17 stitches) dc up the row ends on the other side (26 stitches) and dc into the 4 stitches on the back. (73 stitches).  Move the markers as you crochet so that the ends of the each side, toe-cap and back are marked.

Round 2: repeat round 1

In rounds 3 – 6 you will decrease at both ends of each side, and at each side of the toe-cap by double-crocheting together the first two and last two stitches of both sides and the toe-cap as follows:

Round 3: dc2tog, dc into next 22 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 13 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 22 stitches, dc2 tog, dc into last 4 stitches (67 stitches)

Round 4: dc2tog, dc into next 20 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 11 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 20 stitches, dc2 tog, dc into last 4 stitches (61 stitches)

Round 5: dc2tog, dc into next 18 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 9 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 18 stitches, dc2 tog, dc into last 4 stitches (55 stitches)

Round 6: dc2tog, dc into next 16 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 7 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 16 stitches, dc2tog, dc into last 3 stitches, and slip stitch into last stitch. Cut yarn leaving a loose end to weave in. (49 stitches)

The final two rounds are worked in a contrasting yarn. First of all you make a chain and button hole for the strap, and then you join the yarn to the slippers and continue shaping the upper as follows:

Strap: With colour for trim, chain 5. Slip stitch into chain furthest from hook to form a loop (this will be the buttonhole: if your buttons have a diameter greater than 1.5 cm, then you may need to increase the size of this loop).  Then chain 16.

Picture 4: strap

Left slipper

Round 7: Join chain to left slipper on the right side in the 8th stitch from the front right corner (see picture 5 ). You will then continue crocheting around the upper, decreasing at the corners and heel as in rounds 3 – 6 as follows: dc into next 7 stitches, dc2tog, dc into 4 stitches along back of slipper, dc2tog, dc into next 14 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 5 stitches (across toe-cap) dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 7 stitches (the last dc goes into the same stitch that you joined the chain to the slipper).  Then dc up one side of the chain you made (16 stitches), dc into each chain in the loop (5 stitches), and dc back down the other side of the chain (16 stitches).

Picture 5: joining the strap to the left slipper

Picture 6:round 7, just before crocheting up the strap

Right slipper

Round 7: Join chain to right slipper on the left side in the 8th stitch from the front left corner. You will then continue crocheting around the upper, decreasing at the corners and heel as in rounds 3 – 6 as follows: dc into next 6 stitches, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next five stitches (across toe-cap), dc2tog, dc2tog, dc into next 14 stitches, dc2tog, dc into 4 stitches, dc2tog, dc into next 8 stitches (the last dc goes into the same stitch that you joined the chain to the slipper).  Then dc up one side of the chain you made (16 stitches), dc into each chain in the loop (5 stitches), and dc back down the other side of the chain (16 stitches).

Both slippers

Round 8: dc into each dc along top of slipper until you come back to the strap, then cast off.

To finish: Weave in ends, and sew on buttons.

    I am from calif. I hope these are super easy. I am a beginner and not very good a following directions. I am more of a visual learner. I will give them a try. The are very cute thanks

  17. Mary Says:

    These definitely will not fit my US size 10 feet…but they’ll look cute on someone with dainty little feet. In any case, the pattern was easy to follow and fun to make. :)

  18. Machelle Says:

    I haven’t crocheted in years, and I don’t know how to read patterns. This was so easy I had them done with in 4 hours. The pattern was very easy to follow. Thank you for sharing. (oh, I made mine brown with pink trim and added a flower. They are a big hit)

  19. Kay Lene Says:

    My daughter hadn’t been wanted aniother pair of Mary Jane slippers, so I have been checking all of the websites. I ran across the pattern, so now if I find the time I will made her a pair. Years ago, my grandmother made me a pair. If I remember right her pattern looked like a small square purse. It wretched out to fit the foot.

  21. crossstitchfan Says:

    My two girls age 11 and 14 want me to make these for them but I have only just learnt how to crochet. Thanks for the pattern they are very cute!

  22. Maria Escobar Says:

    The pattern indicates dc (double crochet) the pictures are in sc. (single crochet0 is there a difference in UK and USA abreviations? Thanks

  23. Calypso Says:

    Hi Maria, yes – the stitch known as single crochet in America is called double crochet in the UK. I did write that at the beginning of the pattern, but maybe I need to make it clearer.

    • Kelly Says:

      That’s what I’m doing wrong!!!! Sooooo glad I read this forum! I though these were meant for giants!! Lol

  24. Tawny Says:

    These are great!!! But they certainly need a bit of an extension for my feet, but I made an aqua-marine pair for my mum for Christmas. I’m adding an embroidery on the toe. Great pattern by the way!!! Sooo clear and easy to follow.

  25. Debbie Says:

    These are the cutest Mary Jane slippers I’ve seen. They look modern and easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing the pattern and for letting me know that it was in British Terminology so I would be aware of it as I made the slippers. Guess what I’ll be making for sisters and friends for Christmas??

  26. Debbie Says:

    I would like to make these for my grandaughter. She is only 3 yrs. old, so I would have to down size, but what I would like to know is there any way to make these with the skid dots on the bottom of the slipper? (to help them not fall when they run or walk).

    Thank You for any info you can give me.

    Debbie

  27. Calypso Says:

    I had an email from someone who said they had put little dots of Scribbles 3-D paint on the bottom of theirs to make them non-slip.

  28. Crystal Says:

    AMAZING!!! This pattern was so nicely written, and SO easy to understand! I am an “experienced beginner” at crochetting, and I had no problem making these! Thanks for the GREAT pattern! God Bless!!!

  29. Debbie Says:

    Calypso, Thanks for the tip on the dots with the scribble paints.

  30. Rachel Says:

    Hello,

    Thanks for this lovely pattern, I was looking for something just like this, I love the way you used photos at each stage, make s it much easier for a beginner like myself to understand, I can’t wait to make a pair of these!
    many thanks again!

  31. Tiffany Says:

    i LOVE this pattern, i cant wait to make my own lil changes to work them up for my daughter. tyvm!

  32. Dana J Says:

    Very cute! I’ve never entertained the idea of crocheting socks or any other footwear before, but these are adorable… I think I know what my next project is.

  33. Joy Says:

    Thank you for posting this pattern! I love them! For the record, they do fit up to US size 10. :)

  34. Tamara W Says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this “oh so cute” slipper pattern. I can not wait to make them for my mother and myself. Your pattern and pictures are awesome!! :) Tamara

  35. Betty Says:

    Super pattern – loving making them! Made them Beige (off brown) with orange trim!..Toooo Cute!!! Thanks

  36. Lila Says:

    These are super cute! I’m making a pair right now and the pattern is really easy to follow, which is good because I am new to crochet. I have my left slipper complete and can already tell it will be a titch too small for my ginormous feet. :( Because I am new to this I’m not sure the best way to go about making them a little bigger? Any suggestions? I was thinking about just adding a few extra rows in the sole between rows 3-13…does anyone think this would work??

  37. Lila Says:

    Thanks so much! I plan on using my first pair as a gift for my more petite-footed friend. ;)

  38. fatima gomez Says:

    I love how you showed pictures of the work some of the other sllippers that i have tried to make are really hard and confusing thank you for making it easier to make these ill be sure to teach my mom!:cheer: thank you! :)

  39. kanree Says:

    I am unable to get out much and crocheting helps to pass the time plus makes you feel better. Thank you for you great pattern. Could I use a smaller needle to make smaller slippers. how far down in size can I go without messing up the pattern Thanks Kanree

  40. Drensik Says:

    I just made a pair of these, they are so awesome! I’m very new to crochet, and the directions are very easy to follow. I tried looking for other patterns like this and they were all very confusing, and the end product didn’t look as nice. I’m thinking I might make these as Christmas gifts next year : D

  41. Lauren Says:

    These are indeed beatiful mary janes, probably up there with the best I’ve seen; however, I don’t know what you are talking about with the ‘single crochet in America is a double crochet in the Uk.’ That’s nonsense! I’m American, born in Memphis; my Mother is English, and taught me to crochet. I’ve lived in both countries for equal periods throughout my life, went to school mostly in the UK. My Mother taught me both the single crochet and the double crochet. These two crochet stitches are distinctly different no matter whether one is American or British.

  42. Debbie Says:

    5mm Hook,what size is that…(American)?..thanks

  43. Calypso Says:

    It’s H/8… I think!

  44. Pilar Says:

    hola, soy española y no entiendo nada, y quiero aprender a hacer estos zapatitos para dormir

  45. Andy Says:

    I love this pattern! I have a pair of these (store bought) and have about worn them through. Thanks!!

  46. Dani Says:

    I have been looking for a pattern for a friend of mines mother who has diabetes. She cannot wear shoes, so she is unable to attend church. I think this pattern is what I have been looking for because it is seamless. She has tiny feet so i hope I can adjust it.

  47. JULIE SIPLE Says:

    can’t down load the pattern

  48. Michele Says:

    Very kind you are sharing the pattern for these slippers…they are too expensive an crappy to buy! Thank you, I will use this respectfully!
    It is upsetting when someone might be using your work for profit (I just read your post above) I do not buy anything…hardly ever…it’s true!! And if I can make it myself – I will usually have a go but I would never sell anything that was not mine originally.

  49. jadch2 Says:

    Very nice design. Congratulations!!

  50. carol Says:

    I can’t believe it. I have been looking for free slipper patterns for the last hour and when I was ready to give up I came across this one. It is the exact pattern I was looking for and I can’t wait to get started on it. Thank you so much for posting it.

  51. Inggriet Says:

    I just start to make of this.
    This pattern is really enjoy to make and easy to understand.
    Thanks a lot for sharing the patterns.

  52. XwickedfairyflyX Says:

    After doing the toe it says to do 13 rows of 8 dc, it is SUPER long! WAY TOO LONG! I noticed in one of the diagrams, it looks like you only did 5 or 6 rows of 8 dc. HELP!! Please and thank you! ;)

    • Calypso Says:

      Ah, could the problem be that you are doing American double crochets instead of British double crochets? British double crochets are the same as American single crochets.

  53. Jan Says:

    Love the slippers…… can I come for a visit? Love the view!!! :D just joking!

  54. Diana Says:

    I love these slippers I have made several pairs, including one where I added eyes, ears and a tongue for puppy slippers, and a pair with a E(3.5mm) hook in a smaller size for my 4 year old daughter. thanks so much for this great pattern!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i made a pair for me then used the pattern for my 3 year old. I just used a smaller yarn with a smaller needle and she loves them.

    Thank you for creating such an easy and fun pattern. I am going to make these for the new moms in my life to keep their feet warm on the way to the nursery.

    Thank you again!

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! Can’t wait to give these a try. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern!

    oh my gosh thank you so much,
    i can make a pair in a day and i can’t wait to give the to all my family members for christmas

  62. MommiLuvzLadybugz Says:

    Hi!! I see you included instructions for larger adult feet, but what about the “little ladies”? I have a six year old and an eight year old who walk around the house bare foot on our hard wood floors all the time. I’m very old school, particularly when someone has a cold…you have to keep your feet warm. Their feet in inches measure 8″ and 8 1/2″. I saw someone who sent you a response on 8/6 @10:01 Jen Brugger. She said that she used a smaller needle and yarn…So hopefully this works. But, I have not crocheted for years. So, Getting a feel for things I think will take some time again. Pleas help if you can that way, I don’t have to run through too many trials and many errors. My “little ladies” become “little monsters” if they are waiting too long for anything…

    • Calypso Says:

      Hi, I made a pair using the same yarn, but a 4.5 mm hook to fit an 8 year old with 8″ long feet and they fit her. (I think I shortened the strap by a couple of stitches, too.)

  63. Sonja Greene Says:

    Love this pattern. Thanks for sharing and thanks also for the great details.

  64. sheila Says:

    Good morning. Love your slippers and want to try the pattern. One question..I know your DC is our (American) SC so when you say DC2tog…for Americans we should SC2tog? Seems silly to ask but want to be sure.

    Thank you!

  65. sheila Says:

    I am such a novice…can you use worsted weight yarn made out of acrylic and wool?

    Thanks again.

  66. Melanie Says:

    Hi. I just wanted to say I used Peaches n’ Cream cotton yarn for this and a US size H (5.00 mm) hook. The sizing works for larger feet as well. I normally wear a size US woman’s 11 and I have severe swelling in my feet and legs and these fit me perfectly without having to make any adjustments. And they work up in just a couple of hours! This was my first attempt at making any time of slippers and I found it very easy, once I remembered that a dc was actually a sc for me! :)

  67. Melanie Says:

    And extension of my previous comment: After reading others’ comments and seeing people say that these will not fit their size 10 feet, I have to say that YES they will! I wear a size 11 (US) and these fit me great. Not only do I have long feet, I also have SEVERE swelling due to some leg conditions and my feet are much thicker than normal and these still fit without being tight or binding. Even with the strap across them. I had considered leaving the strap off due to my swelling, but these give so much that I didn’t need to.

  68. RabidCrotcheter Says:

    Do you happen to be left handed? Because I have had to work like you are to get these to work right. I’ve only half way through the first one, I just wanted to know if you were.

    I think these are just GORGEOUS and will look great on my pregnant feet when I go to the hospital to have my baby :)

  69. RabidCrocheter Says:

    I totally spelled my Handle on here wrong. So wrong.

  70. RabidCrocheter Says:

    So Ive gotten two slippers made, one blue and one pink. Almost done with the matching blue. I wanted to let you know I love these and I will be posting pictures on my Ravelry page! I also read your post about that person selling your slippers. Sucky. I hope you dealt with them.

  71. NoviceCrocheter Says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this! The slippers look so much nicer than others I’ve seen and the pattern is explained so clearly! I can’t wait to try this out :)

  72. Leanne Says:

    The are amazing! I showed them to my friend and we have halted all our current projects just to make these! Thank you so much!!

  73. Shumaila Says:

    You have no idea how happy I’m to find this sooper cute slippers pattern. Thank you so much for making them free. THANK YOU !!!

  74. spiralmewtrix Says:

    These are awesome. I will definitely be making them soon! Thank you for posting this here for free. ^_^

  75. Lena Says:

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful pattern. I’m a new crocheter, but I really want to give these a try. They are so whimsical. I love the colors you used.

  76. dorothy Says:

    im trying to make these for a 2 yr old. how would I re-size the pattern

  77. Amanda Says:

    Just darling! I’m in love with mine. I used a wool yarn and they’re wonderful for winter. I’m making these for all the ladies in my family this year for Christmas.
    I would second the question just before mine by Dorothy: is it possible to resize for children?

  78. Drensik Says:

    I’ve made myself a pair of these with no problems, but I’m now making some as Christmas gifts, and I decided to use Caron Simply Soft yarn because it feels a lot nicer than Red Heart (as least in my opinion)….However, the first one I made came out about 2/3 the size I need…I tried going up a hook size (to 5.5mm) and crocheting very loosely, but they are still small…I know they will stretch, but it literally hurts to put them on my feet. No way I’m giving that pair as a gift! I’m afraid going up another hook size will make them way too big….
    Any suggestions about making these with Simply Soft? I’m starting to think I should have started working on these earlier…..

    • Siti Says:

      I also have the same problem as you did. Do you have any idea how am I going to adjust it so that it fits me? Thanks. :)
      Regards, Siti.

  79. Lu Says:

    Just made these and I am a 9.5US, so now you know it fits!

  80. flavia Says:

    Hi, I love these mary janes, but I speak in spanish so it’s a bit difficult for me to ttranslate the stiches in spanish. Do you have a symbol pattern to understand better?
    thanks so much

  81. Kimzilla Says:

    First, I would like to thank you for this pattern. The slippers I made turned out very cute and cozy! I used black for the toe and bottom part, blue for the body, and black for the strap. I wear a US size 10 shoe (I’m not Kimzilla for nothing), so I decided to try this with a 5.5mm hook. My feet are slightly narrow for their length and that hook size was just perfect with this pattern. At only three or four hours per pair, I will be making many more of these!

  82. Margie Says:

    There is a problem with this pattern. When crocheting the sole you need to chain 2 and the end of each row and begin again in the second chain from hook. The first chain represents the first dc.

    • Calypso Says:

      Hi Margie, thanks for your comment. However, I am pretty confident that the pattern as written is correct, and that you only have to chain one and then turn. That’s how I have made all of my slippers. :)

  83. Londalou Says:

    I have made this pattern in various sizes. I love them. My grandbabies loved the ones I gave them for Christmas! Thanks for the pattern.

  84. clara Says:

    THANK YOU for making such an easy to follow pattern, even for a novice hooker like me. If you click on my facebook page [linked to my name here] you can see my version – I loved making them!

  87. Rachel Says:

    I don’t understand why you need yarn markers for this pattern. It can easily be done without them.. I think it would actually be harder with them. There is no point. But I love this pattern thank you!

    And my, is that cotton yarn from Debbie Bliss as silky as it looks??? What a wonderful look!

  89. Katie Says:

    Thank you for sharing your pattern. I’m almost finished with my first pair, but I’ve been thinking of who I could crochet other pairs for because I enjoyed making them so much. My next pair will be for a pregnant friend to wear during her stay in the hospital. These are way cuter than the hospital slipper socks!

  90. Melanie Says:

  92. Ivonne Says:

    Thank you soo much for your free pattern! I made my first pair and loved them. I got a little carried away and I think I added an extra row and one of the slippers looks a little bit bigger than the other. I love them anyway. Made them for my sister that will be hospitalized shortly. Thanks again for your time and effort of giving us these easy to follow instructions!!!!

  106. Bobbie Smith Says:

    I have made a set of these and I do believe that my daughter (who is in the military) is gunna love them! I would like to make a pair for my older daughter. I had her try this pair on and they are like one or two rows too short. How do I go about making them at least a couple rows taller? I mean at which point in the pattern do I make the extra row(s)?

    • Calypso Says:

      To lengthen them, add a couple of rows in the sole before row 13, that is before you start the sole increases. I hope your daughters like them.

  107. Bobbie Smith Says:

    I don’t need to lengthen them, I need to make the upper taller. The length works, just not the height. I was thinking that I could add one extra round between 2 and 3. Then begin the decreasing in round four of the upper. Will that work for making the upper taller?

    • Calypso Says:

      Aha, I see. Sorry! Yes, adding an extra round before you start the decrease rounds should work, although I haven’t tried it myself so can’t say for sure.

  108. karma Says:

    Hello, thank you for this cute pattern! It is very easy to follow. I have a problem though…I have tried twice to make a slipper and they come out way to big! I think it is between row 3-13 where the problem is. I have made the adjustment from double crochet to single crochet for the US stitch. Any suggestions?

  109. Gera Says:

    Hi, I’ve just made one of these and it’s beautiful and so easy to do, your pattern is really clear and the pictures are very helpful. I made it a bit smaller for my niece in Holland, just did a few less rows on the sole bit and shortened the strap by a few chains. Now I just have to try to make the other one the same size!

    Hello there,

    I was looking for a pattern exactly like this, thanks for sharing!

    At first the sole came out ridiculously long, I think my wool or crochet hook was the wrong size, so I adjusted them much smaller. I was thinking of adding a bit more crochet decoration and lining to make these extra warm. These are going to be so great for winter.

    Thanks so much x

  113. Sandran Says:

    Could you please explain what “dc – double crochet (single crochet if you’re American)” means? I am an American.
    Do you have a pattern for slipper/socks for the beginner?

    • Calypso Says:

      It means that if you are American then the stitch used is the one you know as single crochet.

      I’m afraid I don’t have a pattern for slipper/ socks for the beginner, no.

  114. Sherelle Says:

    I just made myself a pair. I wear us size 8.5 and they do stretch to fit, but I think if I were to make another pair id use a 5.5mm hook, though I do tend to keep my stitches pretty tight.

  115. Caitlin Says:

    I just whipped up a pair of these this afternoon, and they are fantastic; I’ve already gone to buy yarn so I can make some into gifts for friends and family. Even though I stitch quite tightly, these fit my US size 9.5/10 feet just fine; I think my success partly stemmed from using fairly chunky yarn. The other benefit of that is that it leaves no gaps between the stitches, even when stretched over my feet, so there will be no chilly breezes making my toes cold this winter.

    Thanks so much for this great pattern. Not only does it look good when followed correctly (as with my right slipper), but it is also forgiving of a few mistakes (as with the left slipper)!

I was hoping that I could make these and use them as a raffle item or sell some of them at the Ziti Fundraising dinners we are hosting. The girls must raise the money it is part of the badge they are earning. So I guess I am asking permission to make this slipper and sell it for fundraising purposes. I can give you the leaders name if you need it. Please email me and let me know if I can use your pattern this way. I think the pattern is cute and the slipper that is made with it will earn some money for the Girl Scouts.

    Hello; I hope you are still responding to comments on this post! I must be doing something wrong. In photo 2, is the original line of 6 chain stitches (obscured in the photo) running horizontally across the photo, parallel to the line of stitches across the top (row 1)? Because when I get to the end of round 6, if I crochet 8 more stitches, I will have 4 on one side of the original chain, 1 on top, and three on the other side. I suspect I should have them all on the same side, and that I counted wrong somewhere in the beginning. Can you confirm this? Thanks!

    I have to say out of all the slippers I’ve done these are my favorite but you have one problem in round three of the toe where it says to dc 6 then 3 in one then 7 then 3 in in the next and two more to make a total of 20 the first 6 should actually be 7 to make a total of 20 otherwise you will end up with 19

    • Calypso Says:

      Hi, thanks for your comment. Round three is actually “dc into each of next 6 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into each of next 7 stitches, 3 dc into next stitch, dc into next stitch” which makes 20 stitches, not 19. :)

    Could you just use a smaller hook, for a smaller pair? for like a three year old?

    • Calypso Says:

      Yes you could, though I don’t know what size you’d use. I used the same yarn as I used in this pattern and a size 4 mm hook to make some for a 7 year old once. You could use a finer yarn and a smaller hook to make a smaller pair, and you could also make them shorter by crocheting fewer rows in the sole.

  187. Flora Isabel Retana (from Costa Rica) Says:

    Hi, I must confess that the instructions are somehow confusing,especially at the toe cap section. I am not exactly an experienced crocheter but I have worked quite a few projects. You might think I am kind of dumb. the row or round that I don´t understand is round 1. I don´t think that the language is a barrier in my case because,although I´m a Spanish speaking person, I learned English in the States, and taught it as a second language for years before I finally retired 2 years ago. And I understand the difference between double crochet (UK) and single crochet(USA).Really I love the look of those slippers, and would like to make them for myself. I¨d appreciate it if you just send me a little note clarifying it.

    I just started crochet’n and slightly understand the conversion from the UK to US, but am having a hard time with the dc2tog I understand it to be sc2tog and still dont have the orrrect amount of stitches …what am I doing wrong??

  201. Katy S. Says:

    Just finished my first pair of these!! I used a bulkier yarn so I decreased the number of rows across the sole of the slipper & decreased the same amount on the sides as well. They turned out wonderfully! These are going to make a great birthday present for my Aunt :) Thank you so much!

    These are the first crochet slippers I’ve ever made, that actually fit properly! Thank you for such a cute, precise, and thorough pattern!

    I love these slippers and I’m having a hard time figuring this pattern out. From row20 and after my slipper is not looking like the picture at all. Posting a video would be of great help!

    I just want to say that I wear size 11 in US womens, and the 5mm gauge hook made the perfect size for me, granted I stretched it. Just so you know!

  206. Sasha Says:

    First of all, love how simple this was for me to do. Unfortunately it doesn’t fit me and I am a size 8 womens US. They seem like they’d fit more of a womans size 6US. Will try again and see if they fit the second time. Love the pattern!! Thank u.

    I’m off to buy some cotton today to make these. Do you think i could wear them in the office?

  208. Francine Says:

    Thanks for a great pattern. I’m making them for xmas gift. I doubled sock yarn and used a 5mm hook. After testing size on my daughter, turned out a little too long, I’m starting over leaving out a few rows . It’s not a problem as they are quite quick to do.

    these were so cute I just had to make a pair. So easy to make up. Thank-You.

    I’m a new crocheter and have struggled with this pattern. Sometimes it turns out and sometimes it doesn’t. I think the trouble starts when I do the last 6 rows before the contrasting yarn. I count 26 then 16 at the toe cap not 17 then 26 again and 4 at the back and its downhill from there. The slipper gets twisted out of shape when it doesn’t work yet I’ve made 4 pairs that did work. I’m so frustrated not being able to figure out where I go wrong. HELP PLEASE.

      Make sure you are using the markers like she does in the pictures and count perfectly and it will come out right

  212. szymski Says:

    i keep ripping out the first slipper and redoing it, but no matter what, it always ends up doing this (i mark the last stitch of each row and count every stitch in each row):

    the last stitch of each row ends up being one stitch prior to the last stitch of the previous row; thus, i can’t really start the sole. row 6 may be 24 stitches long but there are 25 stitches: the last stitch from row 5 is still there. i see no evidence of slip stitches. if i don’t crochet into the LAST eight stitches of row six–i keep trying to figure things out from your photos but can’t see the toe head-on, but i think you have it done so that the first row lies ACROSS the toes–i will end up with a diagonal tip.

    Can you use this for a sock monkey slipper he wears a size 15 shoe so i would need it for 16 .

    I simply love love this pattern! I have made a few of them!!

  220. Elaine Bittencourt Says:

    I have a question though. How would I go about making a double sole for it? I want to sandwich a piece of felt in between two soles to make it more comfy.
    Thanks!
