There’s nothing better than sliding your feet into a pair of comfy slippers, especially if you’ve made them yourself! Here’s why crochet slippers are an awesome project to try:
Quick to make. Crocheted slippers are fairly quick to make. Some of the patterns listed below can be made in just an hour! And that’s great because once you make one pair, you’ll probably want to make more!
Beginner-friendly. It’s best to be comfortable with basic crochet stitches before starting on a slipper pattern. However, if you’re familiar with basic crochet techniques, there are plenty of options for easy crochet slippers that even crochet beginners can make.
One-skein project. Most crochet slipper patterns don’t require a lot of yarn. In fact, many patterns can be made with one skein or less.
Great gift idea. Crochet slippers make great gifts for everyone on your list – babies, kids, women, men – you name it! And because slipper sizing is pretty flexible, you don’t need to worry too much about getting the exact right size (like you would if you were buying someone else a pair of shoes).
Of course, other benefits of making your own slippers include the customization options (you can choose your favorite color, design, and size!) and the amazing warmth they provide! Lots of heat escapes through the feet and head, so keeping slippers on during cold weather is one of the easiest ways to keep your whole body warmer!

This just might be the simplest slipper pattern you can find out there! Even if you’re a beginner with crochet, you can make these slippers. They’re created by making two rectangles with half-double crochet stitches.

Tips for Making Crochet Slippers
Before you start on your slippers, here are some tips that might help you.
Choose the right size.
Since most of the slipper patterns below come in multiple sizes, take a look at the sizing chart before getting started. Different designers may use different sizing – so it’s a good idea to double-check.
Another good idea is to try on your slippers as you work to make sure they fit well. Keep in mind that crochet slippers can stretch as you wear them, so consider crocheting them a little bit smaller than your foot for the best fit.
Check your gauge.
The best way to ensure a good fit is to make a gauge swatch before starting your pattern. If your gauge is off, try sizing your crochet hook up or down until you match the designer’s gauge.
Choose the best pattern for your needs.
Consider where you’ll wear your slippers. Indoors? Outdoors? On the carpet? On a hard floor? Choosing a pattern and yarn that suits your intended usage will help you maximize your efforts.
While an extra soft yarn will work well in a carpeted room, you may want to try a more durable yarn or a pattern such as the Chukka Crochet Slipper Boots (#7 in the list below) that are crocheted on top of a flip-flop sole.
Add a non-slip sole.
For extra grip on hard slippery floors, consider adding a non-slip sole to your slippers. You can stitch a piece of leather or suede to the bottom of your slippers, or use a product like sock stop or puffy fabric paint.
