Sure, I’d be happy to provide you with a description of how to make easy crochet slippers from a rectangle. This pattern is a simple and beginner-friendly way to create cozy slippers. Remember to adjust the measurements to fit the intended recipient’s foot size.
- Worsted weight yarn in your preferred color
- Crochet hook appropriate for your yarn (usually between 4.5mm to 6.5mm)
- Yarn needle
- Ch: Chain
- Sc: Single Crochet
- Hdc: Half Double Crochet
- Dc: Double Crochet
- Sl st: Slip Stitch
- Create the Rectangle Base:
- Start by chaining a length that matches the width of the foot. This will be the width of the slipper. For an average adult slipper, a chain of about 20-24 should work.
- Chain an additional 2 stitches (these will count as your turning chain).
- Row 1: Hdc in the third chain from hook and in each chain across. Turn.
- Repeat Row 1 until the piece measures the length of the foot, minus a few inches (to account for the toe opening).
- Shape the Toe Opening:
- Fold the rectangle in half, bringing the short ends together. This will create a seam at the back of the slipper.
- Using a yarn needle and matching yarn, sew the sides of the slipper together, leaving an opening at the top for the foot.
- Form the Heel:
- Flatten the slipper with the seam at the back.
- Count a few stitches in from each side to leave an opening for the heel (this will be the center of the heel).
- Seam down each side of the heel opening for a few inches, creating the back of the heel.
- Attach yarn to the opening of the slipper.
- Round 1: Sc evenly around the top opening of the slipper. Join with a sl st to the first sc.
- Round 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in each stitch around. Join with a sl st to the second chain of the beginning ch-2.
- Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.
- Optional Embellishments:
- You can add a pom-pom, a button, or a crochet flower to the toe area for decoration.
Repeat these steps to create the second slipper.
Remember, this pattern can be adjusted to fit any foot size by changing the initial chain and length of the rectangle. It’s a versatile and simple pattern, perfect for beginners looking to make cozy and comfortable slippers. Enjoy your crocheting.
