Quick Slippers Hook size G or H (I used H)
4 ply yarn-- scraps (2 oz) Ch 33 (or as long as the foot) DC in 3rd ch from hook and
in each ch across, (go thru both loops) ch 3 and turn. Now DC in each dc across,
ch 3 turn. Keep doing this till you have
12 - 13 rows, end off with a 12" tail of yarn. Thread tail onto a sewing
needle and weave yarn through one end of the oblong, pull tightly to gather,
then whip stitch down folded slipper to a bit farther than half way. Finish
off and cut yarn. Whip stitch heel. You can add a pom pom if you
like. These do crochet up quickly
and you could do them in any size by varying the number of sts and rows.
You can also add a dc cuff.
