Crochet slippers are an easy to create beginner crochet project. Using a basic crochet stitch, along with a yarn needle you can create a cozy pair of socks that are perfect to keep your feet warm. I love to make these for my family and friends and they are so easy to make you’ll find yourself making a few pair for yourself. This is a simple crochet project uses the Bernat Blanket Yarn, a chenille yarn, that is so plush. The cozy slipper socks are a great compliment to the cozy throw blanket.

As with many of my projects, creating crochet slippers can be done in many different ways. Learning how to crochet should be a relaxing process but it can take time to develop a technique that works best for you. My goal is to show you how to create beautiful crochet projects from a beginner’s perspective.

This tutorial/pattern will allow you to create a crochet slipper socks using a basic crochet stitch.

This pattern is written in basic terms, overall. There is a key provided, to help with any abbreviations. Notes have been placed throughout the pattern to provide additional help. A few pictures along with an instructional video are attached.

MATERIALS NEEDED FOR crochet slippers

• Yarn Suggestion- Bernat Blanket Yarn (2 small skeins or 1 large) – This is a 6 Bulk Yarn
• Hook- 8mm crochet hook
Measuring Tape
Yarn Needle


ch- chain
sc- single crochet
tw-turn work





These crochet slipper socks are created for a size 7-9 foot; however, the size can be easily adjusted by adding a few stitches to the row.

Determining Size:

Measure your foot or know your foot size, if you measure 9” you want to make your foundation chain 1” shorter. The yarn will have a lot of give and you want the slipper socks to fit snugly on your foot.

Written Instruction:

ch 17
1. Row 1: Place single crochet (sc) in the first stitch from the hook and then in each stitch across the foundation, ch 1 and then turn your work (tw)
2. Row 2: Place sc in the first stitch from the hook. Crochet into the stitch. Continue down the row until you get to the end of the row, ch 1 tw
3. Row 3-17: Repeat Row 2 until the end
Finish off the project. Leave a long tail (approx. 18 inches)

Constructing the Slipper:

Toe Area:

Once you have your crochet square (swatch).
There are a couple of ways to create the toe area of your crochet slipper sock

Option 1:

Fold the swatch, left to right, sew along the top portion of the swatch using the long tail

Option 2:

Complete a running stitch along the top portion of the swatch. A running stitch is created by passing the needle in and out of the crochet stitches. I have demonstrated this approach in the video at the bottom of these instructions.

When the yarn has been run through the swatch, pull the yarn tight and it will create a gathering at the top of the swatch, essentially creating the toe area of the slipper sock.

Option 2: Run a stitch along top






With the toe area is sewed together, work the yarn back to the center of the toe area (While working the yarn to the middle make sure there are no large holes in the toe area). Begin to work on the center seam.

The slipper sock should be folded in half, at this point with the toe area cinched together. Create a seam by sewing the ends together, approximately 4 inches, see below.

Secure the yarn with a knot and fasten off.

Back Area of Slipper Sock

Once you have the toe and center seam complete sew up the back, heel, area of the slipper sock. I sew up and down twice just to ensure the slipper does not come apart.

Embellishments (Optional)
You can add a bow, button, or a pom-pom to the top or back of the slipper to add a little flair.

    1. Hi. I haven’t tried this but I saw where some people put a bead of glue or puff paint on the bottom of the sock to create a Barrier between floor and the sock. I may try that with mine. If I do I’ll let you know. Thanks for the question 💚
