These cute crochet slippers are an old pattern made new again.  I have been meaning to revamp the original pattern for a while now and I thought our Christmas Gifts in July series was the perfect occasion. I have always loved these slippers and found them to be quite comfortable. I really like my Loafer Slippers, but I really like the toe on these ankle tie crochet slippers.

I changed the heel to be more comfortable and but I decided to add the ankle tie, isn’t it darling? 
If you don’t love it, you can always omit it from the crochet slippers, but I love how it looks (and it does help keep the heel in place).

Construction:

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.

Using your same hook, work with 2 strands of yarn, one of each color. Work a chain 32″ long. Pull through the top of the heel, and tie around the ankle when the slippers are being worn. 

***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. 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.

  1. Love the look of these slippers. Have completed 4 sole pcs. However, in pics showing them on a model they look as if there is a left and right but you do not address this. So are they same except for way the toe flap sewn on or is there sposed be a L and R?

  2. Thank you for this pattern, I love it ! I’m almost finished , but I’m wondering how you sewed the flap on. Are your stitches lined up to each other , or is it sewn on the inside ? Thanks !

    1. Hi Kate! You sew it with a simple running stitch with a darning needle and a length of matching yarn. I sewed it from teh outside, which gives it a “loafer” type look.

    1. Thank you for catching that! Yo will need to make 4 total, 2 for each slipper. I updated the pattern on my blog and sent out an email with a download link (if you downloaded the pattern from ravelry).
