I’m not too sure on the original publication date on this one as it was in a scrapbook of old patterns from all sorts of sources. The collection seems to span from the 1930’s on up to about 1980. If I had to guess I’d put this one in the late 40’s to early 50s.

This really is the easiest pattern I’ve ever come across for crocheted slippers - and they actually look good, unlike some of the horrors from the 70’s and 80’s! The directions are for a women’s size 7-8 but it’s remarkably easy to adjust the size for any foot. The original pattern had sizing for men, women and children but I ended up using the men’s sizing for the ones in the picture - apparently I have big feet, or men didn’t when the pattern was written. Either way, I did some tweaking for clarity and changed the shape of the toe to be a little less pointed than the original turned out.

1 skein of yarn will make a pair with yarn leftover, even on a men’s size 13, and they’re really quick to do. A couple evenings crocheting during TV time and you’ll be done. I decorated mine with some irish crochet roses and leaves (directions included) but you could sew on buttons, patches, ribbons, beads or whatever. They’re a perfect canvas for embellishment so let your imagination run wild!

The slippers pictured were made using:
1 7 oz skein of Caron’s Simply Soft (366 yards/344 meters worsted weight yarn)
Size H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
