crocheted slippersBEV'S WINTER SLIPPERS
(c) 2006, 2018   Beverly A. Qualheim -All Rights Reserved
Size H (5 mm) hook for teens and adults, use a G hook for kids
2 oz WW yarn
I used a single strand of Red Heart worsted weight yarn, but you could make them warmer with a 2nd strand of sock yarn or fingering yarn. You could also make these a few rows longer for men. They stretch really nicely too. These fit women size 7-10

RND 1: Ch 2 then make 12 dc in the 2nd chain from the hook. Join with a sl st to the top of the original ch 2. (12 sts)

RND 2: Ch 2, make another dc in same st as ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around. Join with sl st in top of ch 2 of previous rnd. (24 sts)

RND 3: Ch 2, make another dc in same st as ch 2, *dc in next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc, repeat from * 2 more times. (for wider feet, increase by 1 or 2 more dcs as you go around. Join. (27)

RND 4 - 10: Ch 2, dc in same st, dc in each dc around including the very last one. Join.  (27 dc each time)  

Row 11: (back of foot and heel)
Ch 2, dc in same st, then dc in next 20 dcs (leaving 7 dc unworked) . You are now going back and forth on the 20 dcs.

Row 12-17: Ch 2, dc in 2nd stitch from hook and in each dc across, including the very last dc  (20 dcs).
Slip stitch the heel closed, matching stitch for stitch. Cut yarn with 4" tail and weave back inside the slipper.

Cuff Top
Add a contrasting color (you could even use Fun Fur with your strand of worsted weight, for women's slippers).

Rnd 1: Ch 2, and dc 26 evenly around foot opening. Join.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, dc in each dc around. Join.
Rnd 3: Ch 2 then alternate front post stitch and back post stitch around.

Cut yarn with 4" tail, weave back and forth inside slipper.


Hope you can make a few pairs for loved ones, and maybe for your local nursing homes, or patients in hospitals might LOVE these in bright, fun colors!  Check with your hospital first, and see if they need them to be non-slip.
