Slipper Boots

Thursday, December 25, 2008
I loved the challenge of this pattern. There were lots of different crochet techniques and I have two pages of written notes that helped me get through the pattern!

The pattern is from an Annie's Attic publication titled Quick Stitch Simple Slippers and the pattern is called Slipper Boots. The pattern is clearly written (there was never a question about what to do) but I did have to diagram out what was happening (and where) and I also needed to make a list for the ending stitch count for each row. Markers are a MUST for this pattern!! My advice -- mark, mark, mark and mark again for good measure. You'll be glad you did.

There were two crochet techniques used in this pattern that look like knitting. One is rows of slip stitching in the back loops and the other is the split single crochet stitch. These stitches are very thick so it wouldn't be practical to crochet an entire garment using these stitches(just knit it, in that case!) but for an accent area they are extremely effective and interesting.

  • 2 skiens of Moda Dea Washable Wool in Raspberry
  • Scrap amounts of Red Heart Super Saver in Aran and Grey Heather
  • I achieved gauge with H and I hooks
  • I worked the 9-inch size

  • I made these slippers for Sarah and she has carpeting throughout her apartment but I would add some sort of gripping material for the bottoms if these were to be used on tile or wood floors.
