CLICK HERE for The New Version of this Slipper. This one has a no-sew sole. (The sole is made in one piece and then you continue crocheting the rest of the slipper.)

MATERIALS

1 - 50g ball of 4 ply knitting worsted for Color A.
1 - 50g ball of 4 ply knitting worsted for Color B.
You can use whatever colors you want. I used blue and white.
(This is an estimate, I usually buy larger sizes,
so I am really not sure how much I used)

Hook - 4.50 mm (H-8 US size)

Gauge - 4 sc = 1 inch, 4 rows of sc = 1 inch

My notes, such as - where to make adjustments for other sizes, are in blue.

Abbreviations used:
st - stitch
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
rnd - round
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
tog - together
How to do the 2 sc tog - Insert hook into st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop. Insert hook into next st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop. Yarn over hook and pull through all loops on hook.
How to do the 2 dc tog - Yarn over hook, insert in st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook. Yarn over hook and insert in next st, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook. Yarn over hook and pull through all loops on hook.

SIZE is for Medium with changes for small and large in brackets. Small will fit a foot length of 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 inches, Medium will fit a foot length of 9 to 10 inches, Large will fit a foot length of 10 1/2 to 11 1/2 inches. For extra large slippers, use a larger hook size. I wouldn't go any larger than a size 6.00 mm (J-10 US). For extra small slippers, use a smaller hook. I wouldn't go any smaller than 3.75 (F-5 US) as it may be too difficult to work with. You could try a sportweight yarn with a smaller hook for even smaller sizes.
