The pattern these boots were derived from is here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0


I made a pair of these slippers for my mother a while back: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0

...But when starting a pair for myself, I wasn't crazy about the style...I wanted something that covered more of my foot. So, I started these slippers using the above pattern and a super bulky yarn and boy did they get away from me. Instead of stopping at the "Mary Jane" look I just kept going. They come to just below my knee, but you can also fold them down for more of a bootie type slipper. They are super warm and cozy and with the bulky yarn they work up super quick. While working on them my sister joked, "you could make thigh high boot slippers"...And I started thinking, what about just going all the way and making leggings??? That would be a hoot!

Anyhoo, I don't see any leggings in my future but I will definitely keep making slipper boots.





I forgot to mention that they look super super cute worn with leggings. While wearing them with my leggings, I even got a "wow, those look cool" from my hubby who doesn't even notice if I get a hair cut and color.  Tongue

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Fabulous! What kind of yarn did you use? Seems like the perfect choice for a pair of cozy slippers.

I used almost four balls of the Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Aspen Tweed to get the height that I did. At 2.97 a ball at Wal-Mart. Not too bad.

I absolutely love these!! They look so cozy. I want some for myself but I also think they would make cute gifts.

My crochet skills are limited to stitching in circles. I can do increases and decreases but only in the round. Do you think I could manage this pattern?

I LOVE these! I made the slippers you linked to yesterday, following the pattern exactly. May I ask how you made them into stockings? Did you just continue with the 1 hdc in each stitch all the way up, or did you add stitches? How did you conquer the heel? Sorry I have so many questions -- I absolutely love the slippers I made, but I would love them to be stocking/booties like yours even more!!

This is such an easy pattern to follow and most of it is done in the round. The heel part is the only part that isn't done in the round. And that's only 5 to 6 rows depending on how big your foot is.  Grin Once you have the shoe part done, you just crochet around the cuff round and round until it's the height you want.
