i have made about close to 10 of these, and including 3 for a swap... but i still have issues trying to attach the strap.  Should i make the strap then attach it on with the excess yarn?

I crocheted the edge to the other side.  I started it on one side, then made the strap as long as I wanted it, then I put it where I wanted it on the other side, chained one, and then single crocheted through the edge of the strap and the edge of the slipper, the I continued to crochet on the strap for a few more rows.  Clear as mud, right?

Here's a pic:



If you really don't understand, and want me to post pictures of it, I will.  I HAVE to make more of these.

The only problem is, is they are super slippery on my wood floors!


maybe you could use some less slippery yarn and sew a pattern on the soles? or sew on some sole-ish piece of fabric? that yarn looks so nice and soft Smiley

mbar03:  from the looks of the picture, you've crochet more stitches per round right?  do you keep increasing the rounds as before, 1 hdc, then 2 hdc?  it also looks like you finished the edge with more then one sc row... looks like 3?  I never thought of attaching it over the sides like what it looks like on your picture... maybe i will try that for the next one.  Is your slipper  made with many different yarn held together?  scrap yarn? 

honestly the slippers i make never match... i can't never seem to match the two sides no matter how hard i try.  my slippers are full of personality!!

Serendipity, perhaps... my last pair of "house socks" developed a hole last night, and then I saw this post.  Thank you--that was a perfect quick project!  I modified them to make socks with a cuff, but still quick and easy.  And they actually FIT, which is something I can't say for most of my slipper patterns.  Smiley

I have wood floors, too -- with that super shiny factory finish.  I paint on the bottoms of my slippers with fabric paint (I like to draw flowers, but wiggly lines would suffice).  Works like a charm.

I'm a beginner, so sorry if this is a stupid question. When it says Ch 2. then hdc however many it is and then repeat...Does it mean that I repeat the hdc or also the ch. 2? Thanks!

just repeat the hdc -- the ch 2 counts as an hdc (it's your "turning chain" that brings you up to the next level of stitches)

Ah...I see. Thank you. I decided to stop my crocheting and ask here, as it seemed to be growing too big for the size I needed. I would have been very frustrated if I had needed to frog even more. So, thanks again!  Smiley

I don't think that I actually did crochet more stitches per round.  I pretty much followed the directions.  However, I did use a much smaller hook - an H - because that was what I had at home.  At the back, toward the heel, when I was getting close to the last rows, I took out a total of two stitches - one in each row - to end up with 12 stitches at the end, instead of 14. It just shaped the heel a little more.

I used two different yarns held together - one was textured and one was plain.  Then I used just the plain yarn for the edging - and I did three sc rows - I also shaped it a little - taking out a stitch here and there.

And, I've crocheted for years - since elementary school, so I've had a lot of time to practice.  Waaaay too much time.

I hope that answered all of your questions - maybe more information than you needed!  But if not, let me know.
