Note: The # in Parenthesis () is how many stitches you will have at the end of that round.
Instructions:
Round 1: using 5.5 mm crochet hook, mc, ch 2, 11 dc into circle, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (12)
Round 2: ch 2, *fpdc around dc, dc in next dc stitch, repeat from * around, the last fpdc will be around the ch 2 from previous round, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (24)
Round 3: ch 2, *fpdc around next 6 dc, dc in next dc stitch, repeat from * around, the first ch 2 will count as your last dc, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (28)
Round 4: ch 2, fpdc around each stitch around, last fpdc will be around the ch 2 from previous round, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (28)
Round 5: ch 2, fpdc around each stitch around, last fpdc will be around both the last fpdc and the ch 2 from previous round, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (28)
(I recommend weaving in the starting yarn end so you don’t forget later.) Now repeat round 5 until the length is the same as the second column of the size measurement chart based on shoe size. DO NOT FASTEN OFF
I recommend using a row counter but if you do not have one just turn the slipper inside out and count the ridges and write down how many there are in order to make the second slipper the same size. Mine is size 6 so I worked 17 rounds.
This next section is worked in rows. You will work about 8 rows to add about 3" to your slipper.
Row 1: ch 2, dc in same stitch, fpdc around next 22 stitches, dc in next dc stitch, turn
Row 2: ch 2, dc in same stitch, bpdc around next 22 stitches, dc in next dc stitch, turn
Row 3 to 7: alternate rows 1 and 2 until about 3" to 3.5" are added (for smaller sizes use 3" and for larger sizes use 3.5") Make sure to write down how many rows you work in order to make second slipper the same size.
Now turn the slipper inside out and ch 1 then sl st the back seam together using both loops of the stitch, ch 1, sl st back up to the top then turn slipper right side out and continue for leg warmer. DO NOT FASTEN OFF
This section will be worked in the round.
Round 1: using 6.5 mm crochet hook, ch 2, dc evenly around with 12 dc in each side, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (30)
Round 2: ch 2, dc2tog twice, dc in next 21 stitches, dc2tog twice, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (26)
Round 3: ch 2, dc in same st and in each stitch around, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (26)
Round 4 to 10: repeat round 3 (or until desired height) fasten off and weave in ends
Round 11: turn inside out, join new color, ch 2, dc in same stitch and each stitch around, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (26)
Round 12: ch 2, dc in same stitch and each stitch around, join with sl st to top of ch 2 (26)
Round 13 to 25: repeat round 12 or until desired length, fasten off and weave in ends, fold down and scrunch a bit








***I decided I don't like how the soles turned out so I am removing that portion until I can get them to come out better. I will update as soon as I figure them out.***
Soles Instructions: (make 2 with slipper color then optional: make 2 with jute rope work to round 4 with the jute rope)
Round 1: using 5.5 mm crochet hook, ch 18, 3 sc in second ch, sc in next 5, hdc in next 5, dc in next 5, 8 dc in last stitch, dc in next 5, hdc in next 5, sc in next 5, 2 sc in last stitch, do not join (43)


Round 2: hdc in first sc stitch from previous round (place stitch marker here), 2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 16 stitches, 2 hdc in next 8 stitches, hdc in next 16 stitches, 2 hdc in last st, do not join (53)


Round 3: hdc in first stitch from previous round, 2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 21 stitches, 2 hdc in next two stitches, hdc in next 4 stitches, 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc in next 21 stitches, 2 hdc in last stitch, do not join (59)


Round 4: hdc in first stitch from previous round, hdc in next stitch, 2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 23 stitches, 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc in next 5 stitches, 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc in next 23 stitches, 2 hdc in last stitch, do not join (65)


Round 5: hdc in first stitch from previous round, hdc in next stitch, 2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 25 stitches, 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc in next 7 stitches, 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, hdc in next 25 stitches, 2 hdc in last stitch, join with sl st to first hdc, fasten off (72)


Hold top and bottom and stretch a bit too make it flatter and weave in all ends


*Note: The jute rope is very hard to work with; you may want to wear gloves or use flip flops


Attaching soles:


Put slipper on and match up the sole with wrong side facing slipper and using a stitch marker or safety pin connect the middle toe and back heel as shown in photos, then slip stitch the soles onto the slippers. Do the same thing for the jute rope using yarn to slip stitch.


I think I should have done the soles bigger because of the way they feel - this is the first attempt at doing soles so I will figure out how to do them better and update this post when I do.
