Crochet these Wrap Slippers (Free Patterns)

Crochet August 4, 2017

Looking for that perfect pair of cozy slippers? Something you can slip into when you get home and relax into the softness of some friendly fibers? How about a classic pair of wrap slippers that you can crochet yourself?

With the crochet wrap slipper, you can customize to your heart’s content. Do you want to add leather soles? Include some buttons for a bit of interest? Fancy stitch work? Straps? A dash of color? You can add whatever you want – there are plenty of options.

The wrap slippers crochet up quickly due to the use of bulky yarn (one pattern suggests using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick), in one or two colors. You’ll also need a size “N” crochet hook, a tapestry needle, stitch markers (or if you don’t have stitch markers, you can use safety pins), buttons, thread to match the buttons and/or yarn, and the materials for the soles if you’re going to add those.

While the adult-size slippers are typically sized for women ranging from 5 to 10, it is easy to size up by crocheting additional rows. It’s best to check the gauge first and then keep adjusting as you go along to ensure the perfect size. There aren’t too many complicated stitches either, with most patterns utilizing the following: chain (ch), single crochet (sc), single crochet two together (sc2tog), slip stitch (sl st), space (sp), right side (RS), wrong side (WS), and repeat (rep).

The patterns we found are both written and photo tutorials, allowing for an easier time following along. There are a few notes to read before starting, such as how to make a left and right slipper (some patterns will be the same up to a point and then switch), while some will not change at all. Some patterns are all in the round and some are crocheted in the round at the toe and then worked flat. For slippers, stitches are worked tight in order to create a good fit. You might also need to know a few basic stitches for sewing up the heel. One of the patterns calls for the mattress stitch. There are also instructions for changing out colors if you decide to use more than one color.

Want to try these wrap slippers yourself? If you want a child-size pattern for the toddlers in your life, you can check out the free wrap slipper pattern over at All Day Chic. If you’re more in need of adult-sized wrap slippers, you can find a free pattern over at Joe’s Toes or at The Make & Do Crew. If you’d rather purchase the pattern there’s one for sale in Annie’s Catalog – and if you want to make the slippers without the hassle of going through a yarn stash and trying to come up with materials, you can purchase a crochet kit from Craftsy, which comes complete with a pattern and a few skeins of yarn.

Below you’ll find a gallery of photos to inspire you, whether you purchase the pattern, try out the free options, or want to make up your own slipper pattern.

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    What is it about capes that makes everything feel more mysterious and magical? I’ve always loved capes, ever since I was a tiny kid growing up in the wild woods of Tennessee.

    If you live anywhere near cold weather, you know the unpleasant feeling of slipping into a cold seat.

    I remember when the beanie with a brim became popular. I wanted one so badly, but I wasn’t able to get one until college, and by then the fad had died down. Imagine my surprise and delight, then, when I discovered that these hats are making a comeback! I’ve spotted them in stores from Wal-Mart […]
