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…

  2. Lidija says:

    Thank you for this lovely pattern.The best slippers and very easy to make.

    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

  14. Isa says:

    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.

  15. Jenn says:

    I too am stuck on round 6&7 of the instep?? Can someone please help me out?


  16. melanie laverdiere says:

    I just love the look of this slippers but don’t know what to do on row 6. Hope to get little help, i just start crochet and speak french….please help soon…ty

    • Véronique says:

      Il ne faut pas faire le slip stich à la fin des round 1à5 dans heel. Ça fait le V où on fait les 11sts du round 6.

      Quand tu fais le round 7, les 11sts sont inclus.

      Les 14sts du row 8 vont se trouver là où tu as fait les 11sts.

      J’espère que cela va t’éclairer.

  17. I loved as much as you will receive carried out right here.

    The sketch is attractive, your authored subject matter stylish.
    nonetheless, you command get got an edginess over
    that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again since exactly
    the same nearly very often inside case you shield this hike.

  18. Véronique says:

    That row 6 with its unclear instruction… Relieved to see that I am ”normal”.

    Is it a trick to get our e-mail adress? Only way to post comment and maybe, only maybe, get some explanations.

    Standing by.

  19. Véronique says:

    Sorry about the Paranoia!!!

    Here’s the thing.

    Round 1 to 5… It does not say to slip stich at the end of the round. So we should not slip stich there.

    This forms the V cj was talking about. And this is where the 11 stitches of round 6 go.

    Round 7 includes these 11 stitches.

    And these 11 stitches give you the 14 stitches of row 8.

    Hopefully this helps.

    Har du ngr mönster på svenska ?

  24. Alison says:

    The link to download the pattern isn’t working for me. How might I obtain this pattern (preferrably for free) via a simple download? I love the look of this slipper for my “someday son-in-law”. Have many projects to crochet for Christmas and don’t want to delay. Thank you so much… Can’t wait to make these for him!

    • Marie Estrada says:

      Hi, Alison. We double-checked the pdf download on multiple browsers and the file seems to be downloading fine. A pdf is the simplest version. Please check your email — I’ve sent it to you as an attachment. Perhaps that will work?

  25. Rachel Dew says:

    Did we ever get a clear answer/directions for 6&7/instep? Clear enough that a beginner can understand. I’m so lost.

    • Marie Estrada says:


      Try Veronique’s posted solution. It’s clear and for a beginner. Cut and pasted here: Heel
      Round 1 to 5… It does not say to slip stich at the end of the round. So we should not slip stich there.

      This forms the V cj was talking about. And this is where the 11 stitches of round 6 go.

      Round 7 includes these 11 stitches.

      And these 11 stitches give you the 14 stitches of row 8.

      Hopefully this helps.
