2000, a lady sent me some
slippers for a shelter I serve. I decided to try to make some that
looked like them.
Here is what I came up with- you basically Double Crochet a rectangle, fold in half lengthwise, and stitch it into a slipper:
size H (5.00 mm)
Approximately 2 oz of worsted weight yarn and baby yarn held together
Gauge using 2 strands
of yarn: 2 rows = 2"
; 6 dcs = 2"
Women's size L using 1 strand ww yarn and 1 strand of baby yarn makes a 'slipper rectangle' 10.5" x 8"
Ch 22 - 25 (for kids), (30 women's, or 33 women's wide/mens)
toe end sent by Ann--
For a child size at the toe end for every other row: 2-SC, then 3-HDC, then continue all DC to the heel.
For an adult size at the toe end for every other: 3-SC, then 4-HDC, then continue all DC to the heel.")
DC in 3rd ch from hook and in each *ch
(go thru both loops) ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: Now DC in each dc across, ch 3 turn.
Rows: 3-11, (14), (15 or 16) (this is the length and can be adapted to individual foot size):
Repeat row 2, end off with a 12" tail of yarn.
You are actually making a rectangle
which, when you are done, you fold in half lengthwise.
The toe will be at one end, the heel at the other.
Weave in and out with yarn at the toe end and pull tightly to gather the toe.
Then stitch a seam toward the heel part... leaving enough open for the foot to go in.
Make a few back sts over what you just did, cut yarn. Now reattach it at the heel and stitch that 4" or so shut. It should look like a slipper. Flip it right side out and tada!
These crochet up quickly and you could do them in any size by varying the number of sts and rows.
If you need a place to donate these, please check with your local nursing homes, or we can use them for our local hospice (Mesa View)
