Way Back Craft: Easy Big Foot Slippers

December 4, 2008

Easy Big Feet Slippers

add this pattern to your Ravelry queue

Printable Pattern

My hubby is tall…very tall, almost six and half feet tall.  If you read my personal blog, you’ll know that I adoringly refer to him as The Big Guy.  I’m 5’5″, so I guess you can see what I’d call him that.

He has big feet, too.

He loves slippers and I spent years making slippers from traditional patterns for him, but they blew out on him like no one’s business.  You just can’t put a big man in a pair of slippers made with one strand of yarn.  They don’t last.

According to my original pattern, I designed the Big Foot Slippers back in 2000.  I’ve since made a dozen or so pairs, altering here and there for smaller feet.  These are easy to make and work up quick because they’re made with three strands of yarn.  I use acrylic worsted because it’s easy to wash and holds up well to the wear and tear of a big man wearing slippers!

  • 3 colors of worsted weight acrylic yarn
  • “N” hook
  • yarn needle

Three yarns are held together throughout.

Round 1 – ch 6, join with sl st into ring, ch 3, 14 dc in ring

Round 2 - ch 3, 1 dc in join (1 dc, 2 dc around), join with sl st

Round 3 to 8 – ch 3, dc around, join with sl st

Round 9 to 14 - ch 3, dc around, don’t join, ch 3 turn (except last round). Note – You can add more or less rows here, depending on the size of the foot you’re crocheting for. To finish, whip stitch up the back using the outside loops only. Finish off.

Optional: Evenly sc around the slipper opening, join with a sl st, finish off.

As always, if you make any pattern or craft from sewhooked,  I’d love to see a photo. Email me or add it to the Friends of sewhooked flickr group.

Happy crafting

    Lovely pattern! How can I adjust them to a size 15?? Is this even possible?

    Thanks!

    You should be able to make them bigger by adding a row of DC at the end of the pattern. If you have that size 15 foot to use as a reference, try the slipper on before you finish it on and you’ll be able to tell how much you need to add.

    I hope that helps!

    My aunt made slippers like these and they are my favorite! My first pair I wore out the bottoms because I wore them all the time. Thanks for sharing the pattern


    My pleasure! They’re easy to adapt to smaller or larger, too.
