Freebie Friday: Cozy Crocheted Slipper Boots

With Thanksgiving around the corner, the holidays just beyond that, and winter starting to creep around the edges of Fall, I’m feeling the need to find ways to get cozy and hunker down for winter.  Some of my favorite winter treats to indulge in are: hot chocolate, sleeping under a down comforter, sticking oranges full of cloves… and pulling my cozier pair of slippers out of the closet.

With these thoughts in mind, I’ve decided that my next crochet project will be a pair of cozy slipper boots.  I found a great pattern in one of the books on my bookshelf at work and I can’t wait to give it a try.  Anyone want to try it along with me?  :-)  If you do click below to download the project for free… and stop back here afterwards and post pictures!  I’ll do the same…

    Thank you, Thank you for this pattern, it took me several goes but I got there in the end.
    Why I kept getting stuck was because right at the end of round 7 the pattern said TURN, so because of this the next row which was supposed to be the top of the foot I ended up doing along the side of the slipper! As this was a first descent go at doing slippers I got confused easily. I just wanted to let you know this to help you. I am so thrilled with this pattern and how the slippers look finished off on the edges. I bought the exact colour bulky yarn in the end as I first made a pair with thinner wool and a 5 and a half hook which changed the size dramatically, but I suppose this could be a way of doing different sizes. These slippers are so unique as they give the foot an edge rather than just rounded. Thank you so much.

    Is this pattern in US terms?

  6. Karen says:

    I have tried clicking the download, but I still can’t get the pattern.

  7. I was so excited to start the cozy slippers, and now I am just so confused. I too am not sure if I am suppose to TURN at the end of row 7…..and also…I can not get passed row 6. I am not sure about where to place the 11 sc’s for the instep and where to join with a slst. Row 6 is the only row out of the whole pattern that has kept me from finishing this project..HELP!

    • Denise R. says:

      I am confused at this point also. It says: Row 6 1 sc in each sc to last sc, 2 sc in last sc, then work 11 sc across instep (row-end edges), join with a slip stitch to first sc. Row 7 CH 1, 1 sc in same place as ss, 1 sc in each sc to end…

      Okay, so row 6 if you are single-crocheting around to last sc and then putting 2 in the last sc, where does the 11 start? AND how do you start Row 7 in first sc?

      So confused.

  8. monique m. fermin says:

    I too am have problems with row 6 to row 7, please help. thanks

  9. Melissa says:

    I am also confused as to where to put the 11sc at round 6. I can’t figure it out…I’m sure it’s something simple that I’m not thinking of, but I need some help!!!

  10. Nicole H says:

    Hello! I just love this pattern and the way it looks like an actual shoe and isn’t rounded. However, I seem to have stumbled upon a troublesome spot that I can’t get past. If anyone could be so kind as to help me I would greatly appreciate it!! The spot in which I’m stuck is round 6 where the instep is created. I don’t quite know where to put the 11sc. Thank you in advance.

  11. Carrie says:

    please assist me with the instep as well, I am confused as to where to put the 11 stitches

  12. Julie says:

    I need help figuring out where the 11 sc for the instep go as well. Thanks in advance

  13. CJ says:

    Hey guys! So i’m no expert crocheter myself, and I really struggled to understand the row 6-7 thing too, but I think I got it! As far as I know, and what worked for me, was that you finish off the row, and then where the “V” is, where your pieces are now separated, that’s where the 11 stitches go! I googled “row-end” crochet, and that’s what I got from it. So you go around the row like normal, and then crochet the sides of that “V” to kind of finish/start off the part that will go around your ankle and to the top of your foot. From then on you will continue crocheting on that V until it turns into the flat part on the top of your foot. I hope that helps at least one person, if anyone will see this! xo

    I love this pattern so far but for the life of me, I’m utterly stuck at row 6/7. Please help! I would love to finish these off.

Project of the Month

Pencil Case

Happy September! It’s officially that time of the year again. It’s back-to-school week here in New York City and we’re reminiscing about all those ‘first days’ of school. A new year means all new supplies, clothes and accessories. So, our Project of the Month is in honor of those who want something different from their pencil cases. We pulled this Pencil Case pattern from Sweet & Simple Patchwork Gifts by Hisako Arai and Yoko Sanjo because it offers not one but two methods of making the case--one with a zipper and one with a spring clasp!
