fphdc= front post half double crochet

Adult Women Size

Two ways to make this below with two different sized hooks


Red Heart Love yarn, 4 ply
yarn needle

I made these slippers for myself. I wear about 8 1/2 size shoe. You will need to use measuring tape to help you with this pattern and the women’s foot available if the shoe size is a different size.

sl st=slip stitch
sc=single crochet
hdc=half double crochet

Start: Make 2, K hook
Toe: Chain 2, work 5 hdc in the 2nd chain from hook, sl st
Rnd 2: *Work 2 hdc in each hdc around*Repeat around, sl st -10 hdc
Rnd 3: *hdc in the next, 2 hdc in the next hdc, *Repeat around, use a marker now, and dont use a sl st, -15 hdc

Rnd 4: *hdc in the next two hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc, *Repeat around, sl st -20 hdc

Rnd 5: *hdc in the next three hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc, *Repeat around, sl st -25 hdc

Rnds 6-cont.: Hdc in each hdc around, (work in continual rounds without a slip stitch, use a marker)*Repeat this round until the toe Reaches 5.5 inches long, Now if your Foot is smaller then a size 8.5, then you will crochet up to the about a 1/2  inch away from your ankle and stop until the next rows below.


Next Rows: This is the opening of the Slipper where the foot goes in: Now Chain 1, and Turn, *hdc in each hdc around until you reach the marker from the last round, Chain 1 and Turn, *Repeat this until your slipper reaches 10.5 inches long or about 4.5 inches from the end of the last round of the toe to end of the heel, or  if your foot is a different shoe size, crochet until you can close the last rows together and it fits comfortably without the slipper coming lose when you walk.

Once your slipper reaches the length to fit a women, then take the ends of the last round, and slip stitch across to close it for the heel. Then at the end, I turn it inside out, so the heel seem won’t show . Now fasten off and weave in the ends.

    Thank you so much for the videos. I have seen these booties on so many boards and have been dying to make them for me and all the women in my family and of course my grand daughters. I can’t wait to get stitching! Again, thank you for sharing.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. Someone asked me to make similar booties but as more than a novice at crochet, I had to say no. That is, until I came across your tutorial. I must say it was more than a little difficult for me but with perseverance I had a pair made up! I won’t admit how long it took me though…LOL Can’t wait to see her face when I give them to her!

    I am trying to make a pair to fit a size 7.5 without a model to try them on. Could you give me an estimate of how long to make the toe, or anyone else who has used this pattern?

  4. Ann says:

    Thank you so much for both the written pattern and the videos! I used both! This pattern makes a fast and surprisingly easy pair of booties. Your tutorials were spot on. Daughter in law asked for a pair on Thanksgiving day. I found your pattern, bought the yarn on Friday, finished them on Sunday morning. I love instant gratification projects! (Short attention span)
    I will be using the pattern to make a pair of booties for my husband, replacing the crocodile stitches with a cuff, and just adding a row or 2 of stiches to fit.
    You did a great job!!

    Thanks so much for posting a coherent pattern, I’ve been having trouble finding one. One question, though; at the beginning (and then again throughout, but as an example) after the 5 HDCs, you say to use a slip stitch. . . where? Into that first 2nd chain from the hook that the HDCs are in? And then at the end of that round it says to use another slip stitch, is that into the first stitch of the previous round or . . . ?

  6. amray2007 says:

    slip stitch into the beginning of that chain 2. Then the other slip stitches then you slip stitch into the beginning of the first stitch again.
