Crocheted Slippers made with Bernat Sox yarn

Have you ever crocheted slippers? Up until recently, I never had, but then I found this free pattern from Bernat for their new Sox yarn so I had to try it! You may need to sign up for a free account to access this pattern, but it is well worth the effort because the Bernat website always has lots of wonderful free patterns available for knitting and crocheting with their wide variety of yarns.

How do you like my slippers?


Crocheted Slippers made with Bernat Sox yarnI made the largest size for this first pair because I thought my sister had a bigger foot than my daughter. As it turned out, between the BIG BLACK scarf and all the other goodies I gave her, she didn't need a pair of crocheted slippers anyway!

I enjoyed working with this Bernat Sox yarn. I found it to be very soft and quite pleasant in my hands. The hook size required for this pattern is a D, which I did not have in my extensive collection of crochet hooks. That was fine with me though because it forced me into purchasing a new crochet hook to add to the collection! I'm always up for a new tool! While I was at it, I also purchased a size C and a size B, just in case! Now my needle roll for my crochet hooks is completely full, with some of the smaller hooks doubling up in the little pockets. But I think I now own every size crochet hook known to man, so it's ok!

This pair of slippers took about 3/4 of one skein of Bernat Sox yarn. With the remainder of the skein, I am sure I will have enough left to knit or crochet at least one baby hat for the hospital, maybe even two.

My next project is a knitted cardigan sweater made on size 17 needles! I'm going from one extreme to the other with my projects! I have already begun the back and have about 8 inches complete. I'll take a few pictures when there is something interesting to show you.

Happy Stitching!

  • I love those slippers! And I have a skein of Bernat Sox yarn sitting around. Alas, it is destined for man-sox, partly b/c the man-boy needs sox, and partly b/c it is rather masculine colors (khaki/olive), and I'd much rather make the slippers in pretty lady colors, like lady-slipper pink! ;)

  • Oooo one day I hope to be able to make myself slippers. Love them. Currently I'm slipper-less, wearing regular socks in the house and my feet are always cold. Why is it most socks are knitted and not crocheted? Can you even crochet socks? Just wondering...

  • Those socks are gorgeous! I've been thinking about making a pair of socks or two. Maybe soon. . .

  • Hello Mary Grace,

    I really like these slippers you made here, and they look super practical and cozy!

    My first slippers I've ever made were a free pattern of Annie's Attic free pattern of the day(they discontinued the free pattern though for some reason, some time back)

    I usually come back to it though for quick gifts.

    Enjoy your slippers!

  • I like 'em a lot! I think I have this same yarn/same colorway so, of course, I'm gonna try and make myself a pair ;)
    Thank you for the idea. Visiting from iCrochet on Sarah London's blog.
