Crochet Slippers (Free Pattern)

Whenever I get the urge to crochet something, I usually prefer to make something quick and easy. Because of that, I tend to crochet more for babies and children than I do for adults. This week I needed a quick crochet project to give as a gift and I racked my brains to think of something I could make to gift to an adult. I finally remembered some slippers I had made a few years ago, and luckily I had written the pattern down! They are very quick and very easy so perfect for someone like me. I love that they fit so many different sizes aswell so one pattern is all you need to make slippers for most adults. This pattern makes slippers that will fit from a UK size 4 to a UK size 7 (I think that is 6.5 to 9.5 in American shoe sizes and 37 to 40 in European shoe sizes).

To make your own slippers, you will need a 3mm crochet hook, a 5mm crochet hook, some double knit yarn, a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

Mimie’s Big Bow Sandals (Free Crochet Pattern)

I first made a pair of these little sandals when my middle child was a newborn, so 9 years ago! Since then, I have made hundreds of these little sandals. They are very well received as a new baby or baby shower present.

This pattern should be suitable for beginners. If you do not yet know how to crochet, you can find a basic how to crochet video here.

Big Bow Baby Sandals (Free Crochet Pattern)

I have included instructions for preemie, newborn, 0-3months and 3-6months. The sandals are not suitable for babies who are cruising or walking.

I tend to crochet quite tightly so you may need to adjust your crochet hook size or yarn thickness to achieve the correct sole size. Try with the recommended crochet hook size and DK yarn first, then scale up or down from there.

The sole on the finished sandal should be 3.75″ long for preemie, 4.25″ long for newborn, 4.5″ long for 0-3months or 4.75″ long for 3-6months.

For this free crochet pattern, you will need double knit yarn in the colours of your choice. You will also need a 4mm crochet hook, a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.
