First pair of crochet slippers fresh off the hook!

Editor's Choice - Jan 10, 2017

I know the lighting is awful … I apolgize, I need to get rid of the bulbs in my dressing room closet and redo the lighting when I get back on my feet from my career change.

Anyhoo, I’m extremely pleased with how these came out. I made the large size, as I tend to wear thicker socks with slippers, and I have a wide foot. They’re for myself, so I’m not bothering to wet block. I used Caron Cakes in Lilac Frosting, as I am a crazy color slipper kind of gal. For the most part, the light grey and some lilac make up the side and instep. I decided to replace the bottom sole with plain black worsted from my yarn stash, as I just couldn’t see walking on Caron Cakes.

The pattern was a free one from the archives of the show Knit and Crochet Now. Only single crochet, chain and slip stitch were used. I will definitely be making these again, this has quickly found it’s way in to my ’ go – to ’ pattern file. The only thing I may do is actually work up two sole pieces per slipper and stack them for added thickness. Haven’t really decided on that yet.

Thanks! Celebrating my Editor’s Choice accomplishment! Can’t believe I never tried slippers before, but this pattern was really easy; especially since I wanted to swap in less expensive for the sole.
