MATERIALS


1 - 50g ball of Black 4 ply knitting worsted.
2 - 50g ball of White 4 ply knitting worsted.

Hook - 4.50 mm. See Charts for conversions to US and UK sizes.

This is a newer updated pattern, which is easier than the first Sneaker Slipper pattern.



SIZE is for a foot length of 9 to 10 inches. I don't have time right now to do patterns for different sizes, so I would suggest for larger sneakers, use a larger hook size. I wouldn't go any larger than a size 6.00 mm (J-10 US). For smaller 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. Update: - I made a pair with a 4.00mm hook and they fit a foot length of 8 inches.
Gauge (with 4.50mm hook) - 4 sc = 1 inch, 4 rows of sc = 1 inch

Abbreviations used:
st - stitch
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
tbl - through back loop
beg - beginning
tog - together
dec - decrease

SOLE
With black yarn, ch 6.
ROW 1: 2 sc in second ch from hook, 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, turn. (7 sc) In the next rows, all stitches are through back loops only. (Throughout the pattern, ch 1 does not count in the stitch count.)
ROW 2: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, turn. (9 sc)
ROW 3: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (11 sc)
ROW 4: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (13 sc)
ROW 5: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn.
ROWS 6 to 18: Same as Row 5.
ROW 19: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (11 sc)
ROW 20: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn.

ROW 34: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (9 sc)
ROW 35: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (7 sc)
ROW 36: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (5 sc)
ROW 37: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 1 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (3 sc)
ROW 38: 3 sc tog, ch 1, turn.
Next, make 1 sc in last sc of previous row, place 1 sc at the end of each row along side of sole (don't make them too tight) (39 sc), place 6 sc across the back of the starting chain, place 1 sc at the end of each row along other side of sole (38 sc), 1 sc in same place as the starting sc of the round, ss to join to the starting sc, ch 1, (Total = 84 sc) do not turn. Now you are going to make a turning ridge - 1 ss through the front loops of each sc (don't make your ss too tight), ss to join, attach white yarn, ch 1, turn.

(TIP: To make smooth color changes, on the last stitch before you change colors, drop the color you are using before you pull the yarn through the last 2 loops on your hook, pick up the new color and with yarn over your hook, pull through the last 2 loops on your hook.)

LACES - Leaving a tail of about 4 or 5 inches (so you can weave in with darning needle), ch 150.

Finishing - with darning needle weave in all loose yarn ends. If you want, tack tongue in place by sewing a stitch below eyelets to tongue. The sneakers will be easy to pull on and off anyway, so you don't really need to untie them.
