I've been waiting to show you my latest creation, my beautiful new crochet slippers.
I couldn't resist buying the pattern for these from
The wonderful thing about them, is their double sole that most other patterns for crochet slippers don't have. They are so comfortable and I now have very warm tootsies!! Something which is very pleasing as usually, at this time of year, my feet are freezing.
The pattern comes in 6 different sizes for ladies. I made up mine in size 9, which converts to a UK size 7.
I used a shoe size conversion chart to make sure I was making the right size for me.
The pattern is in US terminology but I didn't find it hard to convert to UK terminology.
It is an extremely well written pattern and straight forward to follow.
Two Girls recommended using worsted weight yarn so I opted for Sirdar's Supersoft Aran in Brown for the sole, and Aqua for the upper. It is a good quality 100% acrylic yarn, very soft but hard wearing, ideal for slippers.
Buzz approves too!
I used two buttons from my stash that I found on one of my hunting trips around the charity shops.
I love them so much, I think I will definitely need another pair!!

The pattern is called Violet Women's Slipper
