These Crochet Slippers are made from a square and are a free crochet pattern and made simply using the extended half double crochet, as well as bulky cotton yarn called Billow by WeCrochet.
When I recently asked in The Crochet Club, my VIP membership what pattern they would like next, they asked for slippers. They are great Mother’s Day gifts. So I got to work and tried to figure out how I could make a slipper pattern for any shoe size – without increases or decreases. And then it hit me. How about just wrapping crochet around your feet. That is when I realized I could use a square.
I love finding ways to crochet something from a square. It’s easy, beginner-friendly and so unique. You can use any stitch and yarn you like. Simply make 2 squares in a specific dimension and sew them up. And you are ready. You can then add some anti-slip on the bottom to prevent you from slipping on the hardwood floor, for example. I used fabric paint which you can see here.
So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to make these crochet slippers.

Written Pattern for the Crochet Slippers:
So first, it is important to understand that you can use any stitch you like, as long as you have the squares in the correct dimensions. It’s also easiest to watch the video above to see how to sew the slippers together.
Follow this table for guidance. The pattern is written for a shoe size 8. If you have stretchy yarn or loose tension, go down in shoe size as it will stretch out more while wearing.
|Shoe Size (US Size)||Square Size (inches)|
Make 2 Squares
R1: 1 Extended hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook and in each ch till the end, turn
R2-14: 1 Extended hdc in each st, turn
Sewing the slippers together
Fold the bottom in half and sew the touching bottom edge together (see video for reference). That part is now your heal.
Then divide the opposite side into 3 parts. Weave your yarn through the top edge of 2 parts touching then pull the yarn as you would for a bottom-up hat and close it up. Then fold the last 1/3 over and sew it to the other 2/3rds. You can now add a button if you like. The video above shows this process in detail. This part is now where your toes are.
For the other slipper make sure to do the mirror image of the first slipper.
You can now add any anti-slip part underneath the slippers. I used fabric paint that glows in the dark. You can watch me do it here.
