To Assemble

  • Place an insole in between 2 soles
  • Join yarn with a sl st to any stitch through the soles.

Tips to help make crocheting around easier

  1. Secure with either stitch markers or yarn, on both sides of the soles with the insole in the middle.
  2. Do not forget to trim the insole if it is too big for your foot to your desired measurement.

With both soles and insole in between them, sc over both sides around.

Fasten off.

Make your insoles non- slip using any of the 10+ methods highlighted in this post.

Repeat the second sole

Crochet Slippers with an insole

Section 2 – Upper part

When making the second slipper, flip the second pair when making the upper part, so as to have it as either right or left leg.

If you do not flip the second pair, you end up with the same leg!!!

Count 8 sts on the toes of the sole, place stitch counts

Join CC with a sl st to same stitch as with one of the stitch markers.

Row 1: Ch1, sc in each st across, turn. 8 sc

Row 2: Ch1, (place stitch marker in the ch 1 sp) skip first st, sc in each st across, sc in next 2 sts on the sole, turn. 9 sc

Remove the second stitch marker.

Rows 4 – 7 (7, 7, 9, 9, 9, 9, 11, 11, 13): Rep Row 3.

Stitch counts after Row 7 (7, 7, 9, 9, 9, 9, 11, 11, 13) = 19 (19, 19, 21, 21, 21, 21, 23, 23, 25) sc

Row 8 (8, 8, 10, 10, 10, 10, 12, 12, 14): Ch 1, skip first st, sc in each st across, skip last ch 1 sp from the row below, sc in next st on the sole, turn. 18 (18, 18, 20, 20, 20, 20, 22, 22, 24) sc
