Bubbly Slippers





MATERIALS

Yarn: I used black and white 4 ply worsted weight. I'm not sure how much I used because I always buy larger skeins like Redheart Supersaver , 7 oz, 364 yards. I had a lot of yarn left over from these large skeins.

Hook: 5.00 mm

Size: Women's adult, 9.5 to 10 inch foot. You could use different hook sizes to get different sized slippers.

Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
tbl - through back loops     tr - treble crochet
sc2tog - single crochet 2 together.


I used black yarn for the soles and white yarn for the rest of the slippers. But they would look great in any color.

Star Stitch Slipper Boots

Star Stitch Slipper Boots


MATERIALS
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight. I used Redheart Supersaver. I am not sure how much I used as I bought the larger skeins and only used a small amount of both colors.
Hook: 5.00 mm
Size: Will fit a 9 to 9.5 inch foot. For a smaller size I would try using a 4.50 mm hook and for larger sizes I would try using a 5.50 mm or 6.00 mm hook.


Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch


Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
    hdc - half double crochet
Rnd - Round

How To Make the Star Stitches for this pattern:
(Note: I go through the "loop under the top loops" of the hdc. See my blog post at http://suescrochetknit.blogspot.ca/2014/01/the-star-stitch.html for a photo of where to find that loop. You could go through the top loops if you want, but I think it looks better if done through the loop under the top loops)

Starting Star Stitch: For this pattern you will make the starting star stitch this way. This is the first star stitch of each round, after you make the hdc which each Rnd starts with, ch 2, insert hook into the 2nd chain, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook the same stitch where you made the hdc, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the next st of the Rnd, yarn over pull up a loop, insert hook into the next st of the Rnd, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the next st of the Rnd, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on the hook. yarn over hook and pull through the loop on your hook to close the star stitch (this will form an "eye").

The normal Star Stitches: Insert hook into the eye of previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the same place where you made the 5th st of the previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, then through each of the next 3 sts pulling up a loop in each one, yarn over and pull through all 6 sts on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the loop on your hook (same as doing a ch1) to close the eye of the star stitch.

Crocheted Moss Stitch Slippers




MATERIALS
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight. I used Redheart Supersaver in Hunter Green, 7 oz, 364 yards. I had a lot of yarn left over from this large skein.


Hook: 5.00 mm

Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
st - stitch
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
Rnd - Round     dc - double crochet
tbl - through back loops
ss2tog - slip stitch 2 together
hdc2tog - half double crochet 2 together.

How to do the Moss Stitch: The moss stitch is really simple, it's a combination of slip stitch and hdc. You make 1 slip stitch in a st of the previous Rnd, then 1 hdc in the next st. When you are going back across on the next Rnd, you make your ss in the hdc of previous Rnd and your hdc in the ss of the previous Rnd. My photos doesn't really show how neat the moss stitch looks. I have a link to video on how to do it.

Right Angle Rows Dishcloth Ver. 3


This is another version of the Right Angle Rows Dishcloth. This one is a combination of ridged rows and a sc, ch 1 pattern.

MATERIALS
Yarn: As always with my crocheted dishclothes, I used a lighter weight cotton yarn as I find it easier to wring out than the thicker dishcloths made with the 4 ply cotton. But any weight of cotton will do as you can make the dishcloth as big or small as you want as indicated in the instructions below.

You can buy the perfect cotton yarn for crocheted dishcloths online at Yarnsbay! (Although at the time of posting this, the site is experiencing technical problems. When you place an order it will tell you that it doesn't ship to your location, when in fact they do as they have always shipped my orders before. Hopefully this will be fixed soon!) It is 100% cotton, lightweight (2 - fine), about half the thickness of standard cotton yarns. They are located in Ontario, Canada. They also ship to the U.S.
Hook: 4.0 mm

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet     sctog - single crochet together
dctog - double crochet together

How to do the 3 sctog: insert into st, yarn over and pull up a loop, do the same in the next 2 sts, yarn over pull through all 4 loops on hook.

I think this pattern is fun in that every row gets shorter and faster to do.

I started with Ch 82 because I am user a lighter weight cotton yarn. (For different sizes with other weights of cotton, take the number of chs you normally start with, double that, add 3 for the center sts, add 1 for the turning ch.)
