Quick and Easy Crochet Slippers
Make a Pair of Slippers - Crochet
This easy crochet pattern is really fast and simple to crochet. All you need is some yarn, a crochet hook and a little time.
The pattern is created by crocheting a rectangle approximately 9" to 10" wide and using a tapestry needle to sew up the ends. It's connected by sewing up the toe end and heel when completed crocheting.
The pattern can easily be modified for a variety of sizes from adults to kids. Choose your favorite yarn and begin crocheting the pattern today.
Note in the photo we used Bernat Softee Chunky yarn (approximately 2 - 3.5 oz. skeins) and a size H Crochet hook. Like in most crochet patterns modifications are made when sizing for the feet you are making the slippers for.

Suggested Materials for Crochet Slippers
Before you begin your crochet project be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete it. Check your crochet hooks and scissors and be sure to get a good tote or yarn holder to keep your project in and be able to carry it with you from room to room or to appointments or work.

A good pair of clean scissors to cut your yarn.
The pattern is 1 row = 1 inch
Be sure to purchase a good quality yarn that will wear well for slippers and can be wash easily especially if you have pets or kids you may be washing them more often.
Crochet the slippers for yourself or to give as gifts. These work up quickly and make a present that most people will enjoy receiving.
Crochet Pattern for Slippers
The easy crochet slippers pattern can be made with or without cuffs depending on how you prefer to crochet them.
The pattern is a basic rectangle that is crocheted into a pair of slippers with cuffs. The pattern can be worked with a thick chunky yarn or with a worsted weight yarn and holding 2 strands together. The pattern listed below is for a women’s size 7-9 approximately but it can be adjusted by varying the stitches and the rows in the rectangle.
Note: Like any slipper or shoe the toe is at one end and the heel is at the other end of the slipper. Pull the toe together tightly in order to gather a toe and stitch or crochet a seam in the heal leaving enough yarn for your foot to go in.
If you prefer to print the pattern you can find it for free here on my blog with print friendly instructions.

How to Crochet
Sew up Ends and Add a Cuff to the Slippers
When you are done sewing up your rectangle be sure to pull together and the toe end to make sure it looks like the top of the foot and sew up the heel and as an end. There are pictures on my blog that will walk you through the method of making the slippers.
You can add a cuff or modify the slippers to how you like them when completing. You can also modify them by making them in more than one color.
In order to pull the toe end together, pull the yarn tightly and gather it together and stitch it or crochet together. Sometimes it's best to have a model foot in order to shape it correctly as you go.
