Well, I don’t know about you, but I have been cold! I haven’t needed snow boots for a few years, but I just ordered a pair, and I think they are definitely going to get some use up here. And since my husband likes to keep the house a bit cool, I really needed more slippers for my cold feet. I have designed a couple other pattern, but I wanted to make something new, and these Button Strap Slippers turned out very cute!
They turned out pretty cute and I think I will make another pair in a different color. I wrote the pattern for size 8, but sizing up should be pretty easy for you as I included instructions.

2. Ch 1. Sc in same st. Sc 12. Sc 5 in the 5-ch-loop. Sc 13. Turn.
Start new color with sl st.
3. Ch 2. Hdc in same st. Hdc 12. Hdc 2 in the 5 sts around the loop. Hdc 13. Leave your long tails.
Using your yarn needle, line up your toe flap and sew it in place. Make sure you secure the first st firmly by going in and out a few times. Work your way around until your entire flap is sewn in place. I like to stop after each st, or every other st to confirm everything is in place and even.
After your flap is sewn in in place, line up your strap. I like it right at the edge of the flap. Using your hook, reach through from the inside out, and grab the tails of your strap. You should have 4. Make sure you are pulling them each through a different space. Once all 4 tails are inside the shoe, tie 2 tails together (2 knots) securely and trim or weave in ends if you prefer.
***To make a different size, go up or down 2 ch on your foundation ch. Make sure to adjust accordingly on the sides. The toe and heel should NOT be changed, just the length. Be sure you make the entire soul for sizes 5, 6, 7 in single crochet stiches to make it narrower. Keep in mind, if you are changing the length of the ch by two, your entire round/row count will go up/down 4 sts.
