Simple Slippers Pattern

 
I love slippers and I love nautical colors and themes for summer time. (I also love summer!) I wanted a simple slipper that I could slip on (say that five times fast) in the mornings to wear out on to my deck where I have my first cup of coffee.

I live in Western Idaho on a high desert which means cool summer mornings and blazing hot afternoons. It’s great fun! But that also means I can’t be wearing big ole’ heavy winter slippers around either. My feet will get too hot too fast. I don’t normally wear slippers past 8 AM any way, but you just never know.

I chose to use nautical or “patriotic” colors for my slippers. You could easily make these in all kinds of color combinations such as national flags, favorite sports teams, school mascots, seasonal or holiday themes just to get your creative juices flowing. (Perfect timing for all you soccer fans and World Cup watchers out there!)

I alternated between two or three rows of each color to create my striping effect but you could also break the slipper into thirds to achieve a color block effect or simple crochet a pair in a solid color. Your choice! (Shout out to my mother-in-law for modeling these simple crocheted slippers!)

Optional Embellishment:

I used Petals to Picots free Crochet Anchor Pattern to embellish the tops of my slippers since I was going for a nautical theme. I think the anchor is so adorable and sets off the slippers nicely. If you are using other colors or combinations and depending on the season, add flowers, buttons, ribbons and all sorts of accents to give your slippers personality and pizazz!

Enjoy your cozy new slippers!

Rock the hook,
