I first discovered this very clever pattern via french blogs I follow, and couldn't resist. They're called "peter pan slippers", but I think they look like elf slippers, and to my daughters they're princess shoes ! :-D

I made 3 pairs already (for each daughter, plus for a friend but didn't take pictures) and there will most probably be many  more in the future !
I love them because you can adapt it to any yarn and any size, and my daughters wear them every day. Perfect to use up stash yarn, esp. the yucky acrylics... :-D And what's better than a handmade project that actually gets worn ?!! :-D

Those are awfully cute! I would love a pair. Is this a pattern that is readily available or did you create it? Also they look like they would make quickly. Great job. Will attach bells so I will know where folks are at all times.

They came out really awesome.  What's not to like, aye?  Very cool.  My youngest son would wear them, thinking he was an elf and then he would pretend to be shooting arrows for hours Cheesy
I wonder... it looks familiar.  I need to check the pattern stash. They can't take that long to make (compared to the projects I'm working on now) Was the pattern online?  Please share a link and save me hours of going through my pattern stash  Wink

yep, that's the one. The designer  is from Chile and she's so nice. You'll find the free pattern for those slippers on her blog http://josefinayelamanecer.blogspot.com/ (I hope this is allowed, cean't find a mention about this in the FAQs :-P)

Btw, thanks for the nice comments. And if any of you tries this pattern (which I highly recommend, so easy for a great result), I suggest you use maybe a smaller hook than you usually would. Denser fabric seems to work better for the final result. :-)

Hi, thanks for confirming the pattern.  I was wondering if you have any suggestions oh when to switch form part one to part two?  the translation in the pattern is pretty vague.

thanks

Ahem, ... may I admit that I used the chart and never actually saw there was a switch from part 1  to part 2 ..?!!  Tongue Roll Eyes

However, I'd say crochet away in the part 1 until your square is about the length of your foot (or intended recipient's foot size) and then switch to part 2, which will become the curly toes part.

I added some notes on ravelry on how I did mine if you have access to it.

Otherwise, I joined the sides of the square first in sc for heel part, did only 1 sc in the chain-corner section (to avoid having a super pointy heel which didn't look nice), and then joined in sl stich to make it as flat as possible.

And then, I worked about 2 or 3 sc in each stitch of the curly toes section to make it curl nicely.. although I have since realised that this may not be necessary if you actually follow her pattern corretly, with that "part 2" section... Grin

It's true that her pattern is not phrased as we're used to but I think it's mostly a language issue (she's not a native english speaker). I actually worked only from the chart, as she added the notes in english only after I had finished mine.
All in all she's really very nice, we exchanged some messages via ravelry and I'm sure she'll be ready to help if you ask her.

I'm gonna make a few pairs for Christmas as well! Great, you saved me the trouble of knitting socks for everyone Smiley
And I'll also make a pair for myself, cause these are probably the only kind of slippers I can manage to wear (without losing them somewhere under the sofa on the very moment I sit down Cheesy)
I really like the colors you used, beautiful work!

I recently rechecked Ravelry and even the original Chilean designer's website, and the pattern for these is no longer free...  Sad  If anyone has a modified pattern and would be willing to post it, that would be outstanding.  Otherwise, I just wanted to make people aware.

from the original blog post not the pattern on ravelry  here is what i have been using

Peter Pan's slippers.

 

This is a slipper that is worked like a granny square but ISN'T A GRANNY SQUARE!
You need know the size of foot.
Them, you will work like:

Part 1:
Until the 60-70%:
Magic circle, or 4 chain joined with sl st.
Round 1: 4dc, 3ch, 4dc, 3ch, 4dc, 3ch, 4dc, 3ch. Join with sl st.
Round 2 and next: *dc in each dc, 3 dc in ring, 3ch, 3dc in ring. Repeat * around. join with sl st.
Part 2:
From 60-70% until 100% more a round:
Round 1:* dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3ch, 4dc in ring. Repeat* around. Join with sl st.
Round 2 and more: dc in each dc, 5dc in ring, 3 ch, 5dc in ring, * dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3 ch, 4dc in ring. Repeat * around. Join with sl st.


Sew for the wrong side.
 

Back to right side, enjoy your slipper, smile, be happy.

 

Abreviations:
dc: double crochet
ch: chain
sl st: slip stitch

If you don't want the pointy heel, change part 2 for:

From 60-70% until 100% more a round:
Round 1: dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3ch, 4dc in ring, dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3ch, 4dc in ring, dc in each dc, 3dc in ring, 3ch, 3dc in ring, dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3 ch, 4dc in ring, dc in each dc. Join with sl st.
Round 2 and more: dc in each dc, 5dc in ring, 3 ch, 5dc in ring, * dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3 ch, 4dc in ring. 3dc in ring, 3ch, 3dc in ring, dc in each dc, 4dc in ring, 3 ch, 4dc in ring, dc in each dc. Join with sl st.

5dc in ring, 3 ch, 5dc in ring----------->this st, will be a point of your slipper.
