Sweet Slipper Crochet Pattern



(you have to be logged in to Ravelry to download the pdf)

As Promised! Here is the Sweet Slipper design. It's on Ravelry. Here's a PDF download link you should all be able to download it. If not let me know and I'll re-post it. Use it for any charity you like, the more that are made and donated, the more people who can be helped. I'm sending mine to the Pink Slipper Project. Click the Button on the side bar for more info.

It's made with a size G crochet hook and is a size 7. You can repeat R9 to any desired length. If you need a wider slipper, use a size H hook and still repeat R9 to your desired length. ;)
I used Red Heart in the color Buff. The ballet pink color was left over from something else.

 Fits women's size 7-8, can be customized to
fit any size by repeating R9 to desired length.
Materials ~
ww yarn for the slipper
dk/sport weight yarn for the trim
size G crochet hook
needle to sew up end
Gauge ~
4 hdc and 3 rows are 1”
Notes ~
~ Turn after each row.
~ The slipper is worked from the toes to the heel in 1 piece. When you begin the sides, they may not look wide enough, however, when the slipper is finished and you add the 2 rows of sc for the edging, it will pull together nicely to fit snuggly.
Begin ~
R1 Ch 10, hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook, (2 skipped
chains count as the first hdc, now and through out) hdc in
the next 6chs, 7 hdc in the end chain. Continuing around
the opposite side of the chain, hdc in the next 6chs. 5 hdc
in the last ch, join with a slst to the first hdc. Turn.
(26 hdc, measures about 3” from end to end)
R2~4 Ch 2, hdc in each hdc around, join with a slst to the
beg. ch2. Turn. (26 hdc)
R5 Ch2, hdc in each of the next 8 hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc, hdc in each of the next 2 hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc, hdc in the next 9 hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc, hdc in each of the next 2 hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc. Join with a slst to the first hdc. Turn. (30 hdc)
R6 Ch2, hdc in each hdc around. Join with a slst to the first
hdc. Do Not Turn for next row. (30 hdc)
R7 Ch2, hdc in the same sp as joining. Hdc in each of the
next 19 hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc. Leaving the last 9 hdc
unworked. This was the only row you Did Not turn.
(23 hdc)
R8 Turn, ch2, hdc in the same space as the ch2. Hdc in
each of the next 21 hdc, 2 hdc in the last hdc. (25 hdc)
R9 ~ 22 (You may have more or less than 22 total rows, you can stop or continue repeating R9 to your desired length. Just do not crochet past the heel of the foot, you want the slipper to be a little snug to fit well) Turn, ch2, hdc in each of the next 24 hdc. (25 hdc) Finish off and leave a tail long enough to sew up the heel. Sew up the heel.
Edging ~
Join the Main Color in the sewn seam of the heel, sc evenly around the top side edge (the opening for the foot) of the slipper, crocheting down 1 side, across the top of R6, back down the other side of the slipper. Finish off and weave in ends.
Join Contrasting Color in any sc, sc in each sc around the edge. Finish off and weave in ends.
Make a tiny pom~pom and sew to the back top edge of the heel.
Make 2 slippers and enjoy! Or better yet, make several and donate to your favorite charity to help spread some warmth this winter!

  4. It is kinda a big file because it has a few photos. Probably I should resize the photos before I make the file a pdf. I'll post the pattern to the blog in just a minute.

  5. Just found the Pink Slipper Project site. I don't like to sew and have been crocheting afghans for family Christmas presents, a pleasant surprise to find you were willing to share a nifty pattern for these slippers. What a worthy cause to be involved in. Thank You!

  16. These are some of the most beautiful slippers I've ever seen for medium worsted or worsted weight yarn. I so love the scripture at the bottom of your blog as well. Yes let's praise God!!! Thank you Jesus. Thank you for the air that we breathe, and for all that we are in you Lord. Thank you Lord.

  18. Sarah, I love your slipper pattern! I know you told how to make them larger...is there a way to make them smaller?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes, you can do one of several things to make them smaller. You can use a thinner weight yarn, like a #3 sport weight or you could go down about 2 hook sizes, still using the same instructions and same stitch counts.

    If you want to actually decrease the # of sts you make, you could decrease the foundation chain, decrease it by 2 or 3 chains. Your stitch count would be off for every row, but you would still crochet the same basic shape/design. This would make the square toe a little smaller though and may even cause it to round out instead of being squared off.

    The easiest thing would be to experiment with different hook sizes to give you a tighter gauge or just go to a #3 sport weight yarn and follow the instructions as they are, that way the square toe stays a main design element in the slipper. Good luck and send me a photo if you do make them smaller. I'd love to see how they turn out. :)
