Crochet Slippers: Cozy, Comfy and FREE

The holidays are upon us, and that means two things: Our feet are cold, and we need to Xmas shop. Well, I’m here to offer a solution to both. Crochet slippers!

Make yourself a pair of these comfy crochet slippers, slip them on and stay warm while you crochet everyone else a pair for Xmas gifts. Problem solved!

I’ve been searching for a way to incorporate some of this Lion brand Go For Faux Thick and Quick into some winter projects. I”m still ambitious about adding it into the collar of a sweater or jacket project, but these slippers were a great fit for the product.

It’s really soft to the touch and it retains a lot of warmth, so it made for a perfect slipper cuff for these crochet slippers.

These will work up quick and easy. If you’re like me, you always have just enough super bulky yarn left over to taunt you. Not enough for a sweater, too much for a hat. This should do the trick.

If you’d like to purchase one of these patterns, you can always find them on my Etsy, Ravelry or Lovecrafs.

I hope you all enjoy, Happy crocheting 🙂

If you’re looking for some other crochet slippers, you might love these Crochet Christmas Stocking Slippers as well. Great for lounging during the Xmas holiday season.

Materials

*Some of these materials contain affiliate links, for which I make a small commission. Ya know, super small but everything helps 🙂 It’s no extra cost to you, makes shopping easier and helps to keep the lights on.

Stitches used & code

  • Magic ring
  • ch = chain
  • st = stitch(es)
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • rep = repeat
  • ” = inches

Notes:

  • This pattern made as women’s shoe sizes 5/6( 7/8, 9/10, 11/12 ) Keep in mind these slippers can stretch a little, so the sizes are flexible depending on how you want them to fit.
  • All the sizes are made the same in this pattern, just adding or subtracting rows to the desired size. Just follow the size guide above as you go.
  • In the pictures, I have demonstrated with size 7/8

Yarn needed:

  • Color A = 60( 70, 80, 90 ) yards
  • Color B = 20( 25, 30, 35 ) yards

Gauge: 10 hdc X 6.5 rows = 4″

Comfy Crochet Slippers Pattern

Note: We’ll use color A for the slipper part. Every time you start a new round place the stitch marker into the first hdc.

Start with a magic ring

Round 1: ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 9 hdc into the ring sp, sl st into the first hdc st. Total of 9 hdc

Round 2: ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 2 hdc into each st around, sl st into the first hdc st. Total of 18 hdc

Round 3: ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 hdc into each st around, sl st into the first hdc st. Total of 18 hdc

Round 4 – 8 rep round 3

Row 9: ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 hdc into each of next 13 st ( do not crochet into the last 5 st, leave it open ). Total of 13 hdc

Row 10: Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 hdc into each 13 st. Total of 13 hdc

Row 11 – 13( 14, 15, 16 ) rep row 10

*The end of row 13( 14, 15, 16 ) Cut the yarn and leave about 10″ tail, we’ll use that tail to sew the slipper hell ( Check picture below )

Turn your slipper inside out, we’ll sew on the wrong side. Use the tail that we left earlier, using which ever method you prefer to sew ( Check picture below )

Cuff = Color B : Turn your slipper right side out, we’ll crochet on the right side

Add new yarn into the back of the slipper, ch 1, 1 sc into each st around, cut the yarn and weave all the ends ( Check picture below )

Congratulations, you did it! I’d love to see everyone’s work. If you to share with me, just tag me on FB or IG. Happy crocheting:)

    I love these slippers. It says it has a free pattern, which you are doing in a size 7, but I want the smaller size. No where does it show how to do the smaller size.

    Hi Cindy, I explain how to make a smaller size in the written pattern above as well as the video tutorial.

    Do you have this pattern for children’s sizes? Thank you very much.

    Hi Brenda,
    I don’t, I don’t quite have the children’s sizes figured out. I’m working on it though, hopefully in the near future. Thanks for your interest!

    Where can I buy the yarn if I live in Canada ? Can you help me find something maybe similar if I cant 🙂

    Hi Isabelle,
    I don’t really know what the Canadian retail market looks like for buying yarn, but I’m sure we can figure out some other options. I used Butter Cream Luxe in a #6 super bulky from Joann fabrics, but if you don’t have Joanns, maybe you have a Lion brand distributor? Their wool ease thick and quick is very similar in the same weight. If all else fails, you can certainly order something from Lovecrafts.com, there are some great sellers on Etsy, a lot of options on amazon. You just need a decent quality #6 super bulky for the body. The faux fur you will almost certainly have to order, I have a hard time finding it anywhere in person here. There should be links in the post for where I got mine.

    Super easy and so cute! Your tutorial is awesome and easy to follow! I know you say to decrease for smaller size, but how do I know which part to decrease. So for size 4 would I decrease 3 rows in both toe and heel? Thank you!

  • Knitcroaddict
    November 17, 2020 at 6:12 pm

    Thank you! Oh, that’s a tough question, I would say decrease one row on the tow and maybe two or three on the heal, you just need to try it on as you go. Hope that helps!

    Hi there! I am making these for a project at school (I am taking a fashions class and our current unit is knitting or crocheting) and I was wondering how much yarn I need. I will be following your tutorial that you posted on youtube because I am a size 8 and that was the size that you were making, but it said we will need 60 yards for colour A. Does this 60 yards of yarn make two of the slippers or just one slipper. I am kind of confused as to how much yardage of yarn I will need in order to make two slipper/socks?

    Thank you for posting such a great video
    I am confused as to how to make a size 11/12 for a wide foot ?
    How many rows do you suggest on the toe?
    How about the heel?

    I appreciate it!

    Hello thanks for this pattern and video
    It’s so well done
    How would I do a size 11/12?
    Thanks

    Hi Sam,
    The way a crochet pattern reads is such 5/6( 7/8, 9/10, 11/12 ) you’ll see a similar chart as you’re making along. Wherever your size falls on the chart (7/8) for you is where you will find all of the instructions for your size. So, you can see here :Color A = 60( 70, 80, 90 ) yards
    Color B = 20( 25, 30, 35 ) yards. You’ll need 70 yards of color A and 25 yards of color B. Does this make sense?

  • Knitcroaddict
    November 25, 2020 at 6:37 pm

    The instructions are all included in the post. If you’re unfamiliar with this type of written pattern, it works like this: 5/6( 7/8, 9/10, 11/12 ) Whenever you see instructions that read with parenthesis like that, follow the instructions in the place of your size in the first chart. Does that make sense?

    Thank you for your support Hina, I’ve tried to answer your question under your other comment, please let me know if that makes sense or not.

    I’m not sure, yarn sizes aren’t that easily interchangeable. You could try doubling up the #4 and maybe increase the hook 1 size up. Just be sure to check the gauge. I really recommend using the right material for the pattern though, you’ll save yourself a lot of head aches. If you can’t, try finding a pattern that requires the yarn and hook you have. It will be much easier. Good luck.

    I know you keep saying that you have a size chart in the free pattern, but I have read it through several times and I see no size chart. I think this might be why that question keeps coming up in your comments. Am I missing it on my end because all it says is to refer to the size chart and then the instructions just say to add rows for larger sizes…but I do not know how many rows to add for what size. Does that make sense? I am making them for gifts and do not want to ask each person I am making them for to measure their foot and would love to see if you have a basic size chart for a certain shoe size. Hopefully that makes sense.

  • Knitcroaddict

    Yes, I think calling it a chart might confuse people. If you look under the notes, it says “this pattern made as…5/6( 7/8, 9/10, 11/12 ). So an example would be for a size 5 or 6, you would follow the instructions using the first column of numbers any time you see the group in parenthesis. They all start the same, but the number of rows you need for the size are expressed in whatever column matches the size you’re making. So if you look under row 10 the pattern said, Row 11 – 13( 14, 15, 16 ) rep row 10, so size 5/6 would be a total of 13 rows, size 7/8 would be a total of 14 rows, size 9/10 would be a total of 15 rows, size 11/12 would be a total of 16 rows. Does that make sense?

    Great Pattern, easy to follow, love the video! I made these for a friend and she’d like the heel to come up higher and tighter in the back. What would you recommend? Thanks!

  • Knitcroaddict
    December 21, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks for the kind words Kristin! I’d say there are two options: First, you could just try going down a size. Second, you could decrease the hook size for the last few rows. That way would make the heel tighter and keep the rest the same. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

    Hi, I need a size 9, what adjustments do I need for this size. Please and Thank You…

    Thank you for this tutorial! It is so fun now that my fingers got the hang of it. I haven’t crocheted in years and felt so clumsy at first (and the first slipper shows, haha). The second one came out great. I don’t understand how the pattern represents other sizes either and I only see sizes mentioned one time. There is no chart with columns on the page – perhaps it is not posted? I’ll go by inches with a ruler as I crochet the rows to get the different sizes I need. Very well done video! For those making gifts (as I am) there are charts online you can find for inches of various shoe sizes. It would help to know, though, how much bigger the front of the foot needs to be, i.e. more than 18 hdc’s? I imagine there would need to be more for a men’s slipper. I’d love to see the chart with the columns and corresponding sizes, too. 🙂 Thank you again!

    Hi Again, Since many of us do not see a pattern with columns on the page, could you please re-post it? I’d like to start on a men’s pair of slippers but need the number of rows for the top of the foot, how many rows around, and lastly, length. I guess it’s pretty tough without the pattern after all! Thank you in advance.

    I’m a 62 yr old newbie to crochet. I love the slipper pattern, but also saw the Christmas Stocking Slipper. I clicked on the link to find the pattern but it says nothing was found. Is there a way to get that pattern as well as the one you are making in the video>

  • Knitcroaddict
    January 15, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    Hi Debby, love to hear that! As far as the Christmas slippers, I checked the link and it worked from my end. I’ll paste the one I used here, let me know if you’re still having trouble with it. https://knitcroaddict.com/christmas-slipper-stocking/

    Hi Nicole,
    Sorry for the late reply but I’ve had a few questions about this lately and I’ve been trying to formulate a solution so it wasn’t so confusing. I don’t think there is a chart like you’re picturing breaking the sizes down in inches, as the US sizes are already expressed in inches, but I’m going to quote an answer from a previous question as a reference.

    “Yes, I think calling it a chart might confuse people. If you look under the notes, it says “this pattern made as…5/6( 7/8, 9/10, 11/12 ). So an example would be for a size 5 or 6, you would follow the instructions using the first column of numbers any time you see the group in parenthesis. They all start the same, but the number of rows you need for the size are expressed in whatever column matches the size you’re making. So if you look under row 10 the pattern said, Row 11 – 13( 14, 15, 16 ) rep row 10, so size 5/6 would be a total of 13 rows, size 7/8 would be a total of 14 rows, size 9/10 would be a total of 15 rows, size 11/12 would be a total of 16 rows. Does that make sense?”

    I think you’ve probably already figured this out already, but figuring out the length of the actual slipper is as simple as measuring the foot and making that many rows AFTER row 10. It will start the same regardless until row 10 an then you can just make enough rows to equal the length of the foot you’re making it for. That’s the simplest solution to that problem I think.

    As far as making a men’s size, that’s another story. You would need to make a few more stitches when you start for sure.

    I hope this is helpful, I’ve been thinking on it for a long time and I’m not sure what I should change to make it easier for everyone. I’m open to suggestions though 🙂 Phew, thanks for reading this far lol.

    Hi Kellie,
    I’ve included all the adjustments for size 9, you’ll find them in the 3rd set of numbers in every set of parentheses. Everything is made the same until row 10, and after that, just follow the instructions using the 3rd set of numbers (where you see size 9 on the chart in the notes.) Does that make sense?
