I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.
You'll find a long list of free crochet slipper patterns here along with a description of what you will need to crochet them. They are a popular project to crochet and will keep everyone's feet warm this winter.

Always remember that if you find a pattern that you love, but it isn't in your size, you can often make them smaller or larger with just a change of hook size. They are made to stretch, so you don't have to have them fit perfectly.
