House Slippers

I crocheted these cute house slippers for my friend, Ana. It was her b-day last week and I wanted to make something for her. Ana is the queen of socks and slippers. She's made numerous pairs of socks (in fact she taught a sock class this past weekend at A Mano Yarn Center in Mar Vista). Ana also has made some fabulous felted slippers and boots. I figured she could use another version of house slippers!
Stats: WoolEase washable yarn, worsted weight (1/2 skein); crochet hook size "G". I used a double-crochet waffle stitch for the slipper rectangle. The flower was crocheted separately with a few bits of leftover yarns and sewn to the top of the slipper after joining at the toe and heel and crocheting a picot border.
I have a few pairs of these slippers that I wear around the house; they're very cozy and comfy. This might just make a perfect holiday gift for everyone this year!

Well since 2007 was the Year of the Wristy, I think calling 2008 the Year of the Slipper is a great idea!

So cute. And I love the note on the tag..."can be also be used as dog toys". LOL

Ellen...you are incredible...do you just sit and crochet something from off the top of your head or do you have a plan and a pattern? You always seem to amaze me...with the beautiful things you knit and crochet in no time.

Thanks for the compliments, Goils!

No, Linda from Maryland. I don't just crochet things off the top of my head! I wish! This is an old pattern that I've made many times before. I've been knitting and crocheting for over 40 years, so I have a few patterns in my memory bank!

Since I've only had the blog for a couple of years, all my old patterns seem like new!

There's a link to this easy pattern in the body of the post ("slippers").

Those are wonderful, and I think they would be great gifts for this year! My grandma used to make me slippers every year, oh so many years ago, and I still remember them fondly.

Thank You Ellen! I love them! Also the buttons are beautiful!

Thank you so much for making the extra trip to come and see me at Amano. The sock class went really well, I don't know who had more fun my students or I.

See you soon,

ana
