crochet pattern: in-a-jiffy slippers for your princess

I find it endearing that my daughter thinks I can make anything for her out of a ball of yarn.  Of course, I cannot.  But I was happy to oblige her when Grandma came to town this week and bought her a Belle dress she’s had her eyes on for several months (she has the patience of…of…of whatever animal has lots of patience–I swear sometimes I can actually hear my brain cells going to sleep).

She came home excited to finally have her dress but completely perplexed that she didn’t have a pair of Belle shoes to match.  I don’t know about you but I abhor those plastic things they sell in the stores, so I decided to whip these up.  I usually don’t do anything quickly but I really did make these in about an hour. 

These are quick, easy to personalize to any dress-up outfit, and even easier to tailor to your daughter’s foot size.  This pattern would easily fit a Toddler Size 9-10, but you can adjust for a longer foot by adding rows to this pattern, or for a narrower toe by adjusting hook size.  The pattern starts in the round to form the toe, then works in rows to form the rest of the slipper.

Materials: Hook Size G, Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Bernat Cotton Tots)

Crochet the Basic Slipper:

Chain 2

Rnd 1: 6 sc in second chain from the hook; join with sl st

Rnd 2: ch 2 (counts as dc), dc in same st, 2 dc in each of five remaining stitches; join with sl st [12 st]

Rnd 3: ch 2 (counts as dc), 2 dc in next st, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* repeat from * around; join with sl st [18 st]

Rnd 4: ch 2 (counts as dc), dc in each remaining 17 st; join with sl st [18st]

Rnd 5: repeat Rnd 4

Row 6: ch 2 (counts as dc); dc in next 16 st (stopping short of last stitch) [17 st]

Row 7-13: ch 2, turn; dc in next 16 st [17 st]

Row 14: ch 2, dc in same st; dc in next 15 st, 2 dc in last st [19 st]

Finish off: fold the slipper in half and whip stitch the heel closed

To Embellish:

With scraps of coordinating yarn, work a chain of sc around the top of the slipper.  Add a simple tightly-knotted bow of yarn  to the center (and hold your breath hoping it stays that way).
