I designed these slippers to have a great fit. While being easy enough to make for beginners they feature details like a rounded heel and raised back. Holding a few strands together makes these super cushy slippers work up fast and creates a tweed-like look. You only use about a half a skein of each yarn you choose, so it’s a great way to use up leftovers from other projects.

Skill level: beginner
Finished dimensions: size S (US 7-8) and L (US 9-10). Instructions for size L are given in brackets.
Yarn: About 1.5 oz of worsted yarn in each of 4 colors of your choice (6 oz total). I used Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Light Brown and Off White.
Hook: crochet hook 10mm/US N/P or size to obtain gauge.
Other materials: tapestry needle, liquid latex (optional)
Gauge: 8 st and 9 rows = 4” (single crochet)
To save time , please check your gauge.
