Hi! This is Kami. Be sure to come join me over on Instagram and say Hi.
This time of year my feet are always cold, I wear socks or slippers constantly! I have crocheted quite a few pairs of socks (including slipper style ones) but never actual slippers. I have been eyeing the pattern for these slippers for over a year, and decided it was finally time to make them.
There are many crochet slipper patterns out there, but this one caught my eye because of those straps! They are very reminiscent of Mary Janes which was always my favorite shoe style as a child. It seems every pair of dress shoes that I had were Mary Janes! I also wanted a foot hugging slipper with little bulk. Don’t get me wrong, big fluffy slippers have their place, but it’s so much easier to walk around in less bulky slippers.
These slippers work up so quickly and would make a great last minute gift. The pattern includes several sizes and a lot of information for customizing to the perfect fit. If you are looking for some fitted slippers, you definitely can’t go wrong with this pattern. I am already planning for more pairs for me!
What Materials Do You Need to Crochet a Pair of Slippers?
- 40 Yards of Worsted Weight #4 Yarn – I used 27 yards Lion Brand Jeans in Vintage and 13 yards Lion Brand Pound of Love in Honey Bee
- G6/4.0 mm hook
- Tapestry Needle
- 2 1″ buttons (optional) I used these
- Pins or stitch markers (optional) for holding the straps in place while sewing

This project is great for using up scrap yarn because it requires so little yarn to make a pair. I used Lion Brand Jeans for my slippers because I like the way that this yarn feels, it is a super soft acrylic yarn. Any yarn would work great in this project though, if you’re wanting them to be extra warm I recommend using a wool blend. Yellow is my favorite color so I wanted to add the yellow trim for contrast. I think that Jeans yarn and Pound of Love are a very good match for thickness.
I chose to use buttons instead of crocheting the flowers only because I had the perfect floral buttons on hand.
Although I have not added any to my slippers yet it is always a great idea to add some sort of non slip material to the bottoms of any handmade slippers.
How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Pair of Slippers?
These slippers come together very quickly, they are easily doable in less than an hour. I took slightly longer with mine because I had to go back and fix my mistake. See pattern notes.
I have small feet, I made a size 6.5 checking fit throughout. I recommend checking the fit periodically if possible for the most comfortable fit, it is fairly easy to go back and make adjustments if necessary.
My finished slippers are 8.75″ x 3.25″ laid flat at the widest/longest points.
4″ = 16 Double Crochet stitches and 8 rows worked in the round.
I recommend taking a few extra seconds to pin the straps for these slippers where you want them before sewing them in. I made the mistake of accidentally turning my strap the wrong way on the second slipper while trying to make them match up. This could have been avoided if I had just taken time to pin them. I also didn’t realize my mistake until I had sewn in the ends so I had to cut the strap off and make a whole new one.
I added two rounds of trim to my slippers – I wanted the sides to fall a little higher on my feet. The second round was done in slip stitches to help pull everything together and reduce stretching. When I make the next pair I will probably adjust the number of stitches used for the bottom/sides section to help with the height preference.
Bottom line these slippers are so quick and easy to make I’m definitely seeing more in my future.
