Candy Corn Slippers


(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.) 

If your toesies are cold, crochet a festive pair of candy corn slippers to keep your feet cozy! My candy corn slipper pattern is simple to crochet and I know you will love the warm results as much as I do. Crochet a pair to wear or share, just in time for Halloween and the harvest season. This pattern will fit size 8 – 9 shoe.

Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue.

Size: Adult (8 - 9 shoe size)

Skill Level:  Easy to Intermediate

Materials: Red Heart Yarn, White, Orange, Yellow and Brown, optional buttons for Mary Jane Strap

Hook size: I/5.50mm

Abbreviations:

MR = magic ring/loop (tutorial)
RND = round
SC2TOG = single crochet decrease (or 2 together)
SL ST = slip stitch

Gauge: 4 dc = 1 inch

Note: For a larger sized slipper, continue repeating Row 9 to desired length (shoe size); and increase scs in brown around top of slipper evenly. For a smaller slipper, decrease number of rows after Row 9, and decrease number of scs in brown color around top of slipper evenly.

Sewing Heel
Turn slipper inside out, so that when you sew up heel the seam is hidden (tucked in) when finished.
Fold Slipper in half so that heel lines up with 9 sts on each side facing each other.
With yarn needle, use tail to sew up heel seam. (See image.) Finish, weave ends.
