Women's Felted Crochet Slipper: The Klompen
The Klompen slipper can be completed in 4-6 hours prior to felting.
Skill level: Easy
Felting Instructions: Included and easy to follow.
The pattern is for women’s extra small, small, medium, large and extra large (See “sizes available” for shoe sizes).
There is a crochet chart for constructing the tongue.
Pattern includes photographs of the finished sole and how to attach the tongue to the sides of the slipper. There are also detailed written instructions, making this pattern straightforward and easy to understand.
The pattern has lots of tips and instructions on felting and shaping.
All patterns were tested using either Berroco’s Ultra Alpaca and Cascade 220’s worsted weight or a combination of the two, using a double strand. (DO NOT BUY 220 “superwash”. It will not felt) These are the yarns recommended. You could complete the slippers with as little as two skeins of yarn provided they have been wound so that you can use the middle and outer ends of yarn together (you can ask your local yarn shop to do this for you). You will need more skeins if not wound in this manner or if you want to add more colours.
