Recently I posted adult retro slippers with a pattern (not translated into English yet) and few of you asked me if I can make even a smaller size.
So I adapted it into toddlers´ slippers and the best thing is that you can do the same. This free pattern is so easy that you can make whatever size you need. So let´s try together.
- make dots on the sole with a glue gun so the shoes will not be so slippery on the floor, you can also use a sock stop liquid picture here
- you will need three sizes of the hooks, one for the shoe, one for the sole brim and one for the top shoe border
- shoe size is 15 cm/5.9 in. The size could be adapted according to your choice. When you crochet these slippers for someone else, ask them to measure feet from the big toe to the heel and measure the circumference of instep
- the pattern is not absolutely straight if you end with a slip stich (but it is easier for counting and for beginners) so with a use of a marker you can crochet in circles
- if you use Bernat blanket yarn which is thicker, you will end up with a bigger size!

Grey (hook 5 mm), CROCHET IN CIRCLES
1st row: 8 CH into MC
2nd row: 2 HDC into each CH from the previous row (16 HDC)
3rd row: 11 HDC crochet into gaps and then start the pattern FP HDC, BP HDC, FP HDC, BP HDC, FP HDC (16 totally)
4th – 10th row: 11 HDC crochet into gaps and then start the pattern FP HDC, BP HDC, FP HDC, BP HDC, FP HDC (16 totally)
CROCHET IN ROWS
11th – 16th row: 12 HDC into gaps crochet back and forth, please count your stitches the last one goes to the substitution from the previous row and sometimes you can just forget like me 🙂
You end up with a rectangle shape under the circle part of shoe. Fold it in half and with slip stitches joint the ends of rectangle. You make a seam in the heel part of the shoe. Follow the pictures in order to have a seam in the outter part of shoe 🙂
Upper edge of the shoe – white (hook 4 mm)
HDC around the shoe except the instep part. There you make SC.
Bottom edge of the shoe – white (hook 6 mm)
Turn the shoe sole facing to you and with a white yarn and slip stitches go around the shoe to indicate the sole.
3rd row – pattern
Now we have the “circle” part of the shoe
From now on we crochet back and forth, HDC into gaps, don´t forget to count 🙂
Almost done. Now join the edges with slip stitches
Turn the seam inside the shoe and it is done 🙂
Bottom edge of the shoe
