This easy slipper pattern is one passed down to me from my grandmother. I do not know where she first came across it, but it was well used. She used 2 strands of acrylic yarn held together, but those slippers were VERY slippery on the bottom. I have found that Bernat Blanket yarn is not. If you need help, I highly suggest you check out my video tutorial at the bottom of this post.
What You'll Need:
9mm (size M) crochet hook
roughly 5 ounces of yarn (for a size women's 8/9 slipper)
optional: an ounce or so of faux fur yarn for the trim
I wear a size 9 shoe. This slipper pattern fits me just a tad bit snug when I first put it on, but as it is worn, the stitches loosen just a little and it is perfect. I would make the pattern as written to fit a women's size 8/9.
For larger or smaller sizes, just continue working round #3 until it is the correct length. This section should fit from your toes, to the front of your ankle, where your foot meets your leg.
Once you have the correct length, begin round 12. Continue round 12 until it reaches the heel. Once you have the length you need for the heel, work round 16.
We will be working in continuous rounds. Do not turn your work unless the pattern says so.
The chain stitch at the beginning of a round/row does not count as a stitch.
HDC: half double crochet
Sl st: slip stitch
Hdc2tog: half double crochet two together (half double crochet decrease)
Round 1: Magic circle, and ch 1. Work 10 hdc into the circle, and pull closed. Join to the first hdc with a sl st. (10)
Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 hdc into each st around. Join to the first hdc with a sl st. (20)
Rounds 3-11: Ch 1, hdc into each st around. Join to 1st hdc with a sl st.
Rounds 12-15: Ch 1, hdc in the first 15 sts. Turn.
Round 16: Ch 1, hdc in the first 5 sts, hdc2tog, hdc in next st, hdc2tog, hdc in the remaining 5 sts.
Finish off, leaving a long tail. Use the tail to sew up the back of the slipper. Work away the ends. Make sure to also work away the end from your beginning magic circle.
OPTIONAL: If you want to add a trim around the top, use a bit of faux fur yarn. Attach it to the back of the slipper, and single crochet in every stitch around.

Your tutorial on how to make the "magic circle" is probably the best I have seen. Would like to print the written pattern. Is that possible?

Where is your previously mentioned "magic circle" tutorial? i, too, would like to see it. I look forward to making these too for several of my friends and family.

I agree that the magic circle demonstration was perfect. It made me feel confident at last that I could actually make one successfully!

Hi, I love this pattern. It is quite easy. I want to make this for someone with a size 10. Should I just add another row to this pattern? Would that then fit a 10/11 size foot?

Are these measurements from toe to heal?

What about kids size 3-5

I have made my first pair of these slippers and really love them. I need to make the opening that you put your foot into bigger as bigger feet don't fit in. How do I do that?
My sons feet a HUGE and he's only 11. Instead of crocheting 15 around at the end I did 14 for the last 4 rows, but then you have to skip the HDC in the middle of the 5 HDC. So the last rows would be:

I need to make the tube (for the foot) wider for a man's foot. Where do I increase? Help please

1/8/2021 05:40:38 am
I want to make children's sizes with this same yarn. Should I do fewer stitches in the first and second rows to begin?

Love this video. Good description and pace. Can you share how to do kids sizes? Made many adult ones already. Would like to do some for kids in our family.

This is exactly the style I've been looking for to crochet for my 92 yr. old mother. She says her feet are always cold even with fuzzy socks on and I'm hoping these will warm her. Her feet swell terribly and I'm just learning to crochet so i have no idea how to make these wider for her. Can you advise me, please?

Thanks for sharing this pattern♥ I will be making as many pairs as I can for my charity donations and, of course, my family whomever wants them. They look cozy and warm for cold feet. Thanks again!

Hi, I absolutely love your blanket yarn slippers and have made quite a few for family and friends. My problem is figuring our the sizes, the number of stitches, how many rows for different sizes. Do you have a chart to make it easier.
10/26/2022 09:05:26 am
The pattern was super easy to follow and the slippers came out well shaped. I wear a size 9 and it fit me perfect. I did add a few extra rows of faux fur to make a wider cuff. 🥰
