Crochet Pattern for Slippers with Soles

Pattern Notes

1. To work the toe top, you first make a basic granny square and then add granny stitch rows to the side. The last rows on the side will have sts of varying height to shape the toe top.

 

2. A basic granny square starts at the center and is worked outwards. It is made with groups of 3 dc stitches. Each corner is formed by 2 chains and there are no other chains between the 3 dc groups.

 

3. This project is worked with the right side facing for all rounds.

 

4. The pattern will be referring to the colors used in the white slippers. We will call the colors, white, yellow, and pink for convenience.

 

5. I crocheted over the yarn tails wherever I could. Since this is not a crochet item you will be washing, I thought weaving in as you go is a good option. You can also weave them in after you finish the toe top. 

 

6. The first round is worked into the space in the middle of a chain ring and not into the chains themselves.

Finishing the Toe Top

Weave in any tails left.

 

 

Attaching the Toe Top to the Slipper

You can either sew it on using matching sewing thread and needle or glue it on with fabric glue. If you are using plastic slides, you will have to find glue that can bind fabric to plastic. 

 

I found that sewing gave a cleaner finish at the edges.  If you prefer glue, make sure you take special care at the corners. I used pins to hold the slipper and crochet piece together while the glue was drying but had to redo the corners after I pulled them out. 

 

""

12. Sew sides first and then the top and bottom leaving gaps as shown

 

While attaching the toe top, start on the right or left side of the slipper and attach the two sides first. Make sure you are covering the slipper underneath. 

 

 

Proceed to sew down the top and base where you have the white border. Remember that, unlike the sides, here you will sew an inch along the left and right sides, leave a gap and sew a little in the middle. If there is a slight size variation between the slipper and your crochet project, this will help conceal it.

 

 

Final Thoughts on Crochet Slippers with Soles

I crochet and have for years. While this sounds like a cute idea it would help me more to see what the slippers look like before and then after. I have no problem following the steps, but I cant visualize it without seeing a before shot of the slippers. Thanks
