These are awesome!! Did you do anything to the soles to make them non slippery? We have hardwood floors and I would bust my ass in less than five seconds. Also, if you just scrunched them down, not folded, would they look like those cute scrunchy boots?

I have read that  you can put hot glue on the bottoms of socks and slippers to make them non-skid - that is what I am going to do to these (which are so cute) as I have hardwood floors too!

Hi there!  I hope this thread is still looked at by the people who know how to make this project!!

I haven't crocheted in years so it took me quite a while to remember what I was doing.  Bit by bit, I've worked through... but now I'm stuck. 

 I got the circle started, I made the "toe" area and then have done a few rows of hdc to create the heel... except that's where I'm stuck. I don't know what to do next. (It seems like it should be intuitive but evidently I'm not that smart!)

I've done up to this: [ch.2 hdc in next 14 sts. turn and repeat until foot length is what you want].

It then tells you to put the right sides together and slip stitch shut. BUT I have no idea which "right sides" you're putting together.  Can someone show me a picture of what the back of this sock looks like so I know what I'm stitching?  And then, what are you doing in order to start the hdc that creates the cuff??

Thank you!

hi! these are exactly what i want to make! great job!

i have a question though - since you used a super thick yarn, did you still do 2 strands together like the mary jane pattern calls for? or did you just do one strand?

thanks!!

I've heard of people using puffy fabric paint to add non-slip designs to the bottoms of things like slippers and rugs.  I haven't tried it myself, but I don't see why it wouldn't work - and you can choose a colour that goes well with your project.

I would love to make these. did you post a pattern?

The initial pattern is found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0 .  The adjustments made to the pattern for this project can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402558.msg4733566#msg4733566

I haven't made this (yet!) but it seems like you could have a kind of tube shape that closes at the toe, and then add a flat part to it.  It's the flat part that you fold up for the seam - your project should naturally want to do this.  Basically, imagine that the flat part you just finished is a continuation of the tube you started with.

If this doesn't help, let me know - I'll see if I can do up some pictures. ^_^


Guessing you can't wear that outside right?

I don't think they'd stand up well outside... at least, not around here!  If you could add some kind of reinforcement to the bottom you might be able to get away with it - perhaps by sewing on some kind of leather or something.

I think you could wear them outside as long as it wasn't wet and you were maybe just going out to check the mail or something.

i have a question though - since you used a super thick yarn, did you still do 2 strands together like the mary jane pattern calls for? or did you just do one strand?

It looks like just one strand to me - you're right, this yarn IS super thick.  Holding two strands together would be crazy! (So, of course, I'm going to have to try it now... ^_-)

These are so great! Do you think you could maybe post your exact pattern for these? I saw the mary-janes that you adapted them from, but I'm not very good at adapting patterns myself.
