Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle. Hold the yarn end with left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold loop with left thumb and index finger. *stick hook through loop, pick up the yarn from the skein, pull yarn back through loop, make a yo around hook and pull yo through st on hook = 1 dc*, repeat *-* until there are 5-6-8 dc around loop, finish with 1 sl st in first dc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull the tail to close the loop and the hole will be gone.

Replace first dc from beg of row with 1 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round. I.e. when piece is worked in the round you work alternating from RS and WS and fasten with 1 sl st in 1st ch on the round.

Slipper is worked on hook size 10 mm with 1 strand Polaris. Beg working from the toe. First work in the round – read CROCHET INFO above, and then continue back and forth.

Make a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above.
ROUND 1 (WS): Turn piece, work dc and inc 4 dc evenly = 9-10-12 dc - see CROCHET INFO above.
ROUND 2 (RS): Turn piece and work 1 dc in each dc.
ROUND 3 (WS): Turn piece, work dc and inc 4 dc evenly = 13-14-16 dc.
Work 5-5-7 rounds with 1 dc in every dc (last row is worked from RS).

Now work back and forth over the first 10-11-13 dc. Work 10-12-14 rows with dc back and forth. Slipper measures approx. 22-24-26 cm in total. Work tog mid back with 1 row sl sts through both layers. Then work around the entire slipper as follows: 1 dc in every row and 1 dc in every dc mid on top of foot. Fasten off.
Crochet another slipper.

Can you suggest a substitute yarn? Thank you

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 21:06:

Dear Sue, you can use the yarn converter, which you can find in the materials section, to select a substitute yarn for this pattern.

Karen Whybrow 21.06.2018 - 07:57:

Hi there, I have worked the mid back with 1 row sl sts through both layers, which places me at the bottom of the heel and am unsure how to get from the bottom of the heel, to the position to be able to work around the entire slipper. Could you please advise?

DROPS Design 21.06.2018 kl. 08:38:

Dear Mrs Whybrow, you now cut the yarn and join it again to crochet the edge around opening of slipper. Happy crocheting!

Jere Neal 23.05.2018 - 05:53:

I would love to make the slippers, but I and some I might make the slippers for are Senior Citizens and slippers made with yarn are very slippery. Is there something I can use on the bottom of the slipper to make it NOT slippery?

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 07:46:

Hi Jere, You can buy and sew on soles, which you can get in craft stores or hobby stores. This could solve your problem. Happy knitting!

Hannah Seymore 27.04.2018 - 13:10:

I need help making a gauge swatch with this pattern, it says DROPS CROCHET HOOK size 10 mm / N/15 – or size needed to get 7 sc = width 10 cm / 4''. How many rows does this mean? I'm a beginner so I'm not quite sure how to do this!

DROPS Design 27.04.2018 kl. 13:15:

Dear Mrs Seymore, the number of rows is not that important here, you will adjust to the length, but you should have 7 sc = 4" in width to get the correct measurements around foot. Happy crocheting!

Hannah Seymore 03.04.2018 - 05:33:

ROUND 3 (WS): Turn piece, work sc and inc 4 sc evenly = 13-14-16 sc. Work 5-5-7 rounds with 1 sc in every sc (last row is worked from RS). When working the 5-5-7 rounds with 1 sc in every sc, do you chain one after joining the round with a slip stitch at the end of each round?

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 10:18:

Dear Mrs Seymore, you will replace 1st sc at the beg of row with 1 chain, and finish each row with 1 sl st in the first ch at the beg of row - see CROCHET INFO. Happy crocheting!

Anna P. 20.02.2017 - 14:52:

I do have a question about the rows 3-5: there is a note: 'work 5-5-7 rounds with 1 dc in every dc (last row is worked from RS)'. If I work 3rd row WS how can I work last row (5th in this case) from RS? Thanks,

DROPS Design 20.02.2017 kl. 16:11:

Dear Anna P., 3rd row will be worked from WS, 4th row will be worked from RS, 5th row will be worked from WS and so on until you have worked a total of 5 rows (+ the first 3 rows), so that you will end with a row from RS (= 8th row from the beg). Happy crocheting!

Teresa Weaver 02.12.2016 - 22:24:

Hi, I can't understand how to start the toe and is the whole shoe worked with single crochet? In row 1 , what does work sc "inc "4 sc evenly, mean?

DROPS Design 05.12.2016 kl. 10:28:

Dear Mrs Weaver, slippers are worked with sc, on row 1 and 3 you will have to inc sts evenly - read more here how to inc evenly. Happy crocheting!

Gina 02.01.2016 - 00:11:

After doing the round...what does RS and WS mean? Is it right side and wrong side? What does that mean? do I flip it over? confused

DROPS Design 04.01.2016 kl. 10:40:

Dear Gina, that's right, RS = right side and WS = wrong side - you work in rows (= back and forth) but finish each row with 1 sl st in the beg of row, then turn to work alternately from RS and from WS. Happy crocheting!

Kyrie 08.11.2015 - 14:20:

Can someone make a video? I'm new to crochet and I've started this pattern and all I have is a giant circle. How could this possibly turn into a shoe????????

DROPS Design 09.11.2015 kl. 10:33:

Dear Kyrie, you can get help from the video below - but remember to follow the pattern: start with a magic loop, join each round but turn at the end of each round to work alternately from RS and from WS. Happy crocheting!

Karin 27.10.2015 - 23:36:

Hej, första fm på magiska cirkeln brukar inte räknas som en fm. Gör den det i detta fallet för att garnet är tjockt? Tacksam för svar! Vänligen Karin

DROPS Design 30.10.2015 kl. 08:12:

Hej Karin, Jo du räknar alla fm i cirkeln. Lycka till!
