Crocheted "Knit-Look" Slippers
These slippers look a lot like they were knit. It's hard to tell from the photo,
but you can easily see it with the finished item.

MATERIALS
Yarn: Worsted weight
Hook: 5.00 mm hook
Darning Needle

Gauge
4 sts = 1 inch
3 rows = 1 inch
Size
Women's - 9.5 inch foot
Men's - 10.5 inch foot - see below for instructions.
For every half inch larger, add 4 more stitches, for half inch smaller subtract 4 stitches.

You can do the slippers all in one color, or use two colors. For the women's I used two colors and changed the color on row 4 and every 4th row after. For the men's with two colors I changed the color on Row 2 and every second row after. So all the short rows were done in one color, long rows in the other color.

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet

Plus, on every second row you will make your stitches in the "loop under the front loop. To locate the loop under the front loop - with the wrong side facing you look at the top of the stitch and see the front and back loops, under the loop in the front (the loop towards you) look below it and you will see the loop under it. See photo below:

Do not count the ch 1 or ch 2 as a stitch.
