(Crocheted Slippers)

He really does like my slippers. When we first got him he was only 2 months old and over the next couple of months he ate 2 pairs of my crocheted slippers. He is almost 8 months old now and has learned that I don't want him to eat my slippers anymore.


MATERIALS
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight yarn. Made with double strands. You hold two strands of the yarn together while working the pattern. For these slippers I used Red Heart Super Saver Aran and a small amount of black for the sole and trim at top of slipper. I had Red Heart Super Saver skeins, 198 g (7 oz,) here that I had used a small amount of the Aran and I had a lot left over after making these slippers. So I am not exactly sure about how much yarn is required.
Hook: 6.00 mm (J hook)


Sometimes Red Heart Super Saver yarn, even though it's worsted weight, will be a little different in weight than maybe the last skein you bought. So be sure to check your gauge and go a hook size larger or smaller as needed.


GAUGE: 3 sc = 1 inch. 3 rows of sc = 1 inch


SIZE: These will fit a foot of 9 and 1/2 inches.


Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch (the standard abbreviation is sl st, but I like to use "ss" as it's faster to type.)
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
2sctog - crochet 2 sc together
2dctog - crochet 2 dc together
Fpdc - front post double crochet
hdc - half double crochet
tog - together



Here's a video on how to do the front post double crochet

The pattern for the body of the slipper is 1 dc, 1fpdc. On the next rounds you place fpdcs in the dcs of the previous round and dcs in the fpdcs of the previous round.


Working with 2 strands of yarn held together, Ch 20

RND 1 - 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. 1 sc in next 9 chs, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next 6 chs, 2 dc in next ch, 5 dc in last ch. Working down the other side of the chain make 2dc in next ch, 1 dc in next 6 chs, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 sc in next 10 chs, ss to join to first sc. Do not turn. (44 sts)

RND 2 - Ch 1 and 1 sc in first st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in next 9 sts, 2 dc in next 3 sts, 1 dc in next 9 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in last st, ss to join to first sc. Do not turn. (50 sts)

RND 4 - This round makes a turning ridge for the sides. Working through the back loops only, 1 sc in each st all around, pick up two strands of the color you are going to be using for the rest of the slipper, then ss to join. Do NOT turn. (60 sc)

You can do the whole slippers in one color or use whatever colors you want.
