These crochet plaid slippers are so comfortable and easier to make than you think. They are also incredibly easy to size up or down, so you will be able to make a pair for anyone who wants some (and everyone will!).

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!
