MATERIALS
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight yarn. I used Redheart, 7 oz, 364 yards, larger skein than what was needed. So I'm not sure exactly how much yarn it took.
Hook: 5.00 mm

Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch

Size: Women's adult, 9 to 9.5 inch foot. You could use different hook sizes to get different sized slippers.

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
st - stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
Tbl - through back loop
hdc2tog - half double 2 together


How to make the hdc2tog. Yarn over, insert hook in st, yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over insert hook into the next st, yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook.




Ch 21

Rnd 1 - 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next 18 chs, 4 sc in last ch. Working down the other side of the chain, 1 sc in next 18 chs, 2 sc in last ch, slip stich to join, ch 1, turn. (44 sts)

Make sure you begin your stitches in the first sc and not in the slip stitch where you joined. When you slip stich to join, do that through both top loops.

Rnd 2 - Tbl only make 2 sc in next 2 sc, 1 sc in next 18 sc, 2 sc in next 4 sc,1 sc in next 18 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn. (52 sts) (This is the right side, all even numbered rnds will be worked facing you)

Rnd 3 - Tbl only make 2 sc in next 2 sc, 1 sc in next 22 sc, 2 sc in next 4 sc, 1 sc in next 22 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn. (60 sts)

Rnd 4 - Tbl only make 2 sc in next 2 sc, 1 sc in next 26 sc, 2 sc in next 4 sc, 1 sc in next 26 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn. (68 sts)

Rnd 5 - Tbl only make 1 sc in each st all around, slip stitch to join, ch 1, Do Not turn. (68 sts)

Rnd 6 - Tbl only make 1 slip stitch in each st all around, (do not make these too tight or the next row will be hard to work) slip stitch to join, ch 2, turn. (68 sts)

Rnd 7 - (Ch 2 does not count as a stitch) Tbl 1 hdc in each st to end of Rnd, slip stitch to join, ch 2, turn. (68 sts)

Rest of the pattern is worked through both loops of the stitches.

Rnd 8 - 1 hdc in first 3 sts, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 12 sts, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in last 3 sts, slip stitch to join to first hdc (by joining to the hdc instead of the top of the ch 2 it will prevent a hole at the back of the slipper), ch 1, turn. (68 sts)

Rnd 9 - 1 hdc in first 3 sts, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts, hdc2tog 4 times, 1 hdc in next 2 sts, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in last 3 sts, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn.

Rnd 10 - 1 hdc in first 3 sts, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, ch 1, skip next st, hdc2tog 4 times, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in last 3 sts, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn.

Rnd 11 - 1 hdc in first st, hdc2tog, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 8 times, skip the next ch 1, 1 hdc in next hdc, skip next 2 hdcs, 1 hdc in next hdc, skip next ch 1, (1 hdc in next 2 sts, ch 1, skip next st) 8 times, ch 1, hdc2tog, 1 hdc in last st, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn.

Rnd 12 - 1 hdc in first 2 sts, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 5 times, ch 1, skip next st, 1 sc in next st, in the next st insert hook into st, yarn over pull up a loop, keep it there while you skip the next ch 1, 2 hdcs, ch 1, 6 hdcs, ch 1, 2 hdcs and next ch 1**, insert your hook into the the next hdc, yarn over pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through the 3 loops on hook (this is the center joining st), 1 sc in next st, (ch 1, skip next st, 1 hdc in next 2 sts) 5 times, ch 1, 1 hdc in last 2 sts, slip stitch to join, ch 1, turn. ** It may be easier for you to do that by going to the end of the Rnd and counting back 20 sts (including the ch 1 spaces), and making inserting your hook into that 20th st from the end.

Rnd 13 - 1 sc in each st until you reach the st before the center joining st, skip that st and the center joining st and the next st, then make 1 sc in each st to end of Rnd, slip stitch to join, fasten off.
