As the weather gets colder and we look for gifts to crochet for loved ones this winter why not try to make a pair of slippers with cuffs to keep a loved ones feet warm?
I created these easy and fast slippers using Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in Royal Blue and a size H Crochet hook. But they could also be made using worsted weight yarn and holding two strands together.
These are pretty easy to make I made them to fit a women's US Size M 7-9 but they can be modified by reducing or adding to your first chain stitch.
This slipper is made by crocheting a rectangle approximately 9" wide by 10" high and single crocheting the rectangle together or using a tapestry needle to sew up the ends. The toe is at one end and the heel is at the other end of the slipper. Pull the toe together tightly in order to gather a toe and stitch or crochet a seam in the heal leaving enough yarn for your foot to go in.
Materials: (2) 3.5 oz Skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn or two strands of any regular worsted weight yarn held together throughout the pattern.
Size: H (5.00 mm) Crochet Hook for Women's size
1 Row = 1 inch

Chain 25 for Women's Medium Slipper
(For kids slippers or smaller slippers reduce to 20 or less and for men slippers or larger increase to 30 or more depending on the foot size)

Row 3-14 (this row is the width of the slippers and can be adjusted according to a foot size):

Complete the back of the slipper by folding the slipper in half and SC the slipper to make the back of the slipper as shown in photo...
Once You have crocheted the back of the slipper closed finish off and cut yarn...
Next we will be crocheting the top of the slipper closed and making a cuff around the top of the slipper...
With the slipper wrong side out go to top of slipper and insert your hook in the edge with a slip stitch...
Next - *1 SC in next ch, skip 1 stitch, repeat until end of row chain 1 turn...
Now you will be crocheting the slipper closed on top and the cuff around the top of the slipper
Holding the slipper closed on top sc approximately 10 sc stitches on top to close the slipper (just be sure that your foot hole is not too small or too large to slip your foot into).
Next without cutting the yarn yet turn the slipper right side out to crochet around the cuff edge... Chain 1 to turn and start cuff
Row 1: DC in first chain stitch and all the way around, ch 1 turn
Row 2: DC in first DC and all the way around
