How to Crochet a Slipper ~ Video Tutorial

Winter is coming and chilly floors will be greeting your feet in the mornings soon enough. How about crocheting a pair of cozy slippers for each of your family members before the first frost hits?

Here's a video showing exactly how to follow the instructions which you can print out for yourself HERE.


Cozy Crocheted SlippersDon't they look cozy? The yarn I used is Red Heart Super Saver, just because it's what I had on hand, but I would recommend using a yarn that feels better and is softer, and perhaps non-synthetic like a cotton or wool.

So go to the link above and print out your instructions. Follow the formula for calculating your beginning chain. It might be helpful to read through the instructions before beginning so that you have an idea of how the slippers will come together, or you could watch the videos (part 1 and part 2) before beginning as well.

Here's part 1 to get you started, and I'll post part 2 tomorrow.

The request for this video came from Kari who wanted to make a pair of slippers for her then-fiancé-now-husband, but I'm sure there are plenty of others out there who would love a quick and easy crochet slipper pattern to work up before winter. They would make great gifts for friends and family, and would be a great take-along project for fall sports or while waiting in the pick up line after school!

Happy Stitching!

  • Hi Mary! I love your tutorials!

    This pattern reminds me of slippers that many grandmothers used to make out of Phentex yarn.

    I've tried to click the link for the pattern but it doesn't seem to go anywhere other than the main ehow craft page. Do you know where I can find the pattern you used in this tutorial?

    Thanks so much!
