FREE Crochet Pattern: Crochet Plaid Slippers | Make these cute slippers in classic Buffalo Plaid, perfect for chilly fall days or your Holiday list!

These cute crochet plaid slippers were on my list last year. I literally ran out of winter. Buffalo Plaid seems to be super popular in fall and early winter, but after Christmas, everyone is ready to move on to other things. Everyone is ready to start thinking about springtime (and I admit, I am on that same bandwagon). Since we are doing Plaid Week early this year, I hope you will enjoy making and wearing these crochet plaid slippers through the whole cool-weather season.

Because of the way these slippers are constructed, they are very easy to resize. I am including Women, Kids and Toddler sizes and you can easily change the sizing by making the slippers longer or shorter. 
Also, since these are for the whole family, be sure to check out my list of TESTED methods for making slippers non-slip. You don’t want those little munchkins slipping on the kitchen floor!

  1. I am FINALLY getting around to plaid!! My friend requested your slipper for Christmas. Took forever to find the yarn and I’m hoping to have them finished on Sunday. Anyway, in your pattern you never say what color to start with…I had to read through the pattern to realize was black (for these color choices) and I was wondering if you could adjust the pattern to match the picture (Naming what color to start with etc).
    I also wanted to ask you…when you carry the yarn for the next switch, do you carry it every stitch, or every 3 stitches? I was doing it every stitch and the stitches looked messy…if you mentioned this somewhere in the pattern I apologize, I didn’t see it. Please advise…and thanks love all your patterns!!!

      1. @Bethany, I dropped my hook size to an I and used the toddler size 5/6 pattern. The slipper came out 4inches ;) I think it will do!

  2. Hi. I love your blog and will you make another plaid collection on your Etsy store?
    So all of these can be bought together :) ::crossing fingers::.
    And I do have another question, I have 3 kids, so there would be 1 man’s size, 2 women size and a kids size — how much yarn of each color do you think I need? Were you able to make all 3 of the sizes, women, kids, and toddler, out of 1 ball each? I am not expecting exact yardage as, we all crochet different but trying just figure out how much I’ll need to make my family some matching slippers for opening gifts, with their matching pj’s.
    Thank you for having plaid week, again and early. ::hugs::

    1. Hello! Yes there will be a bundle, if you can wait a few weeks, I am working on some freebies to include :) And yes! I made the women, child and toddler from one skein of each color, total. Two of each color should be plenty.

  3. I didn’t like plaid as a child but as the years past it grew on me. These slippers are adorable! And you are right, there is a mind shift just after Christmas but that is nice, too, as seasons change!

    1. Glad it’s growing on you! I admit I am with you, I didn’t love it as a child/teen either. It’s funny how things change. For me, it’s a bit nostalgic, my grandpa always wore buffalo plaid shirts. He passed when I was 17. Now when I see red buffalo plaid, it reminds me of Christmas at grandmas :)
