These Babouche Slippers are the sturdy, crocheted Moroccan cousin to our knitted Turkish Bed Socks! Ever since the Bed Socks were introduced in 2009, we’ve had requests for a crocheted version—and here it is! Designed for a worsted-weight yarn, they’ll hold up to all the promenading, puttering, marching, and moonwalking you do around the house.

We crocheted our Slippers in Rowan Handknit Cotton—a hard-working 100% cotton yarn. The plies are spun tightly together, creating a smooth, cool touch. Plus, this fiber is machine washable! So no worries if you step out of the house with your Slippers still on your feet!

Women’s medium: approx. 10”/25cm long (toe to heel); approx. 9”/23cm around foot at instep.
Note: Pattern can be adapted for a longer or shorter foot. For length over approx. 11”/28cm, buy extra yarn.

2 skeins Rowan Handknit Cotton (93 yds/85m each); or approx. 186 yds/170m of an equivalent worsted-weight yarn.
