Make it for me: Colour Block crochet slippers

colour block crochet slippers

It’s now 2 years in a row that I create a quick & easy slipper pattern. Who would have thought? While you can make these slippers in just one colour, I think they are a lot more fun with a contrasting colour for the heel & top!

You do you, though!

FINISHING

With long tail, sew heel closed.
Weave in all ends.

IMPORTANT! For more durable & safe slippers, use one of these options:

Option 1: Using liquid latex, dot the sole of the foot. This will help make your slippers last longer (especially with a yarn that does not include any nylon content) & will prevent dangerous slipping!

Option 2: Sew a felt sole under each slipper. You can find less expensive options at the dollar store.
