Tired of never being able to find slippers in your size? Exhausted from trying to locate a pair of slippers that are cozy, yet tough enough to last through an entire season? We found the perfect solution to your problem: these crochet MukLuk slippers. Not only can you tailor make them to your own pair of feet, you can add pom-poms, buttons, lace, or ribbon to customize these to make the best pair of slippers you’ll ever have.
These would also make excellent presents for a sibling, college roommate, or spouse. Whenever they put these slippers on, they’ll thank their lucky stars they met you and were gifted with a pair of these comfy shoes.
Making a pair of these is relatively simple – the pattern even suggests it as a project for beginners and intermediate crocheters alike. You’ll need to gather the following materials:
- Super bulky yarn (the pattern suggests using something like Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, in one or two colors)
- Sizes “K”, “L”, & “N” crochet hooks
- Stitch markers
- A pair of scissors
- Tapestry needle
You’ll also need to be familiar with the following crochet terminology:
- Chain (ch)
- Skip (sk)
- Slip stitch (sl st)
- Stitches (sts)
- Chain 1 space (ch1sp)
- Right side (RS)
- Wrong side (WS)
- Single crochet (sc)
As you can see, there are no complicated stitches to learn, just the basics, although alternating colors of yarn will make the crochet slippers look like they were complicated to make. These slippers are big enough to wear with socks if you’re in need of super-duper warmth, but if you want to make them a bit smaller to accommodate a sockless foot, you can do so by measuring your foot and adjusting the stitches accordingly.
After the slippers are complete, it’s time to decorate. You can go as simple or fabulous as you choose, but keep the recipient’s taste in mind. You may, however, choose to make a pair for yourself.
