  • Quick Start: Crochet slippers

When we get home, it's mostly the shoes that we desperately need to get rid of. We are happy to make ourselves as comfortable as possible. Get out of the street and enter into the feel-good mode! Also, the apartment thanks, if hard, dirty footwear remains outside. Boots, ankle boots and high heels are parked once, because - at home the slipper is king!

Here we show you how to crochet slippers and you will see how uncomplicated that is. Once you start, you will not only be crocheting your own slippers, but you will also be able to gift the entire family and reserve at least half a dozen supplies for visitors.


If you want to crochet such slippers, you can do that very quickly with a thick crochet hook. You need:

  • 150 grams of wool - with a length of about 50 meters / 50 grams
  • 1 crochet hook No. 8

For the model slipper in this manual was used:
Merino 50 by Lang Yarns, color 248

The optimum mesh sample comprises 10 cm in width for 11 fixed meshes. If you can not do it 100%, thanks to the simple crochet pattern, it's easy to regulate while crocheting.

You can use the manual for three different slipper sizes:

sizefoot length
35/3722 cm
38/4025 cm
42/4427 cm

General info: Crochet slippers

The work begins at the toe with a string of thread. This avoids a hole in the initial circle, the tip is perfectly rounded and looks "sharp". More information about the thread ring can be found here: //www.zhonyingli.com/fadenring-haekeln/

At the beginning, rounds are crocheted. Each round begins with a transitional aerial. This air mesh is not taken into account in the mesh calculation. At the end of each round, close the circle with a chain stitch. As soon as the increases are made for the toe and can be crocheted in even rounds, it is advisable to switch to spiral laps. The round crossing is simply crocheted in tight stitches and the rounds actually spin like a spiral around the foot. Advantages: no visible lap transition in every new round - no annoying mesh counting!

At the toe you have to crochet a few increases. The easiest way to do this is to double the stitches: Crochet one crochet stitch and poke again into the same puncture point for the next set stitch (that is the stitching stitch). In the next round, two mesh heads will appear, from 1 stitch to 2. Distribute the increases as evenly as possible in the rounds according to the instructions. Example: Your starting round has 14 stitches and you want to increase 6 stitches. Double z. B. the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 9th, 11th and 13th stitch.

When crocheting in rows, the following applies: The beginning of each row is a transitional air mesh. This transition mesh is not taken into account in the mesh calculation.

Finally, the edge of the slipper is still crocheted. You have to crochet a few stitches together in the second round: Insert the crochet hook into the first stitch and pull through your work thread. Now you have 2 loops on the needle. Now insert into the next stitch (Now you have 3 loops on the needle.), Get the working thread again and pull it through all three loops. From previously 2 stitches becomes 1 stitch.



1st round: Crochet 8 sts in a string of twine and close this 1st round with a slit stitch.

2nd round: Take 6-7-8 stitches evenly distributed this round and close the round again with a slit stitch = 14-15-16 stitches. The three figures given above stand for the three different sizes: at size 35/37 you add 6 stitches, which results in 14 stitches at the end. In the following, this information is to be understood as well.

3rd round: Crochet this round without increments = 14-15-16 stitches. Close the round as usual with a chain stitch. Now I turn over the coping, so that the later outside is already visible on the outside.

4th round: Take 6-7-8 stitches = 20-22-24 stitches evenly distributed this round. This achieves the final mesh size for the instep. Fits the stitch test ">

5th round: Either add a few stitches evenly or crochet without increasing.

From Round 5: Crochet rounds over the foot area without further increases, until a total length of 8 - 9 - 10 cm is reached. If this is easier for you, you can now crochet in spiral rounds. There is no beginning and no end. On the transition air mesh is dispensed with and therefore it does not need a warp stitch at the end of the round.


From now on, work is done in rows and crocheted in tight stitches. I crocheted up in spiral rounds, so just pick up the crochet item, turn it around and then start the first back row on the inside of the shoe. Crochet 15 sturdy stitches (do not forget the transition air stitch at the beginning) and do the work again. It follows the Hinreihe or shoe outside with as well 15 fixed stitches.

Crochet in rows until the crochet slipper has a length of approx. 21 - 24 - 26 cm. End with a row of rows or with a row on the outside of the shoe.

Folded up at the back you can already see how the crocheted slipper will look like later.

Next, the heel is crocheted together. Place the back center on top of each other (the outside of the shoe must be inside). Crochet each of the two opposing edge stitches together with a slit stitch until the heel is closed. Then cut the thread and pull through the last stitch. Sew the thread.


Starting from the heel, the slipper opening is now crocheted: Insert the crochet hook in the middle back and pick up a new work thread.

Round 1: Crochet a transitional air stitch and crochet along the edge into each edge stitch of the rows and crochet a single crochet in the front of each single crochet, closing the round with a slit stitch.

Round 2: Another round of fixed stitches follows. In this round, reduce the number of stitches by 3: Crochet one transition stitch, then skip one stitch and step into the second stitch. Crochet two stitches in each case on the left and on the right (see small finger and forefinger).

Round 3: This round begins with a transitional air mesh and fixed stitches. In the front center, however, 1 half sticks - 4 sticks - 1 half sticks are used. Then finish the round with tight stitches.

Round 4: This round (final round) is crocheted as round three.

The second slipper is also crocheted.

Quick Start: Crochet slippers

  • Start at the slipper point: 8 strong stitches in a thread ring
  • 2nd round: evenly distributed 6 - 7 - 8 stitches increase (size 35/37 - 38/40 - 42/44)
  • 3rd round: Crochet without increases
  • 4th round: evenly distributed 6 - 7 - 8 stitches increase
  • From round 5: continue crocheting in spiral rounds until a total length of 8 - 9 - 10 cm is reached
  • crochet back and forth in rows for the other slipper (15 sts) until a total length of approx. 21 - 24 - 26 cm is reached
  • then fold back the shoe center and crochet the seam along the heel
  • Crochet another edge at the shoe opening for a total of 4 turns. In the second round take off 3 stitches and in the 3rd and 4th round in the middle, crochet 1 half stick - 4 sticks - 1 half stick instead of tight stitches.

These crocheted slippers will succeed you easily! Have lots of fun with it!
