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!!

I didn't stop at the mary jane look, just continued with the hdc around until it reached my leg when trying it on. Did the heel just like in the pattern. so, when you are done with the heel you have just a little footie type slipper. THEN, I reattached the yarn with a slip stitch to the cuff of the footie and crocheted around with hdc joining the rounds just like in the footie part. Does that make sense?...it was so easy and makes it look like one whole piece. Crocheting around the cuff, you end up with more hdc's then in the foot part. I ended up with 21 (I think there are 18 in the foot part) which was perfect with my leg size....Im sure you could add more or less depending on the size of your leg.

Oooooh, I love these! You did a great job--they look super comfy! I've been thinking about trying some crochet socks for a while now (I love hand-made socks but I can't stand knitting), and I think I may have to use this pattern--thanks for the link!

Also, I have an intense love for all tights, leggings, thigh-highs and such so I like your idea about extending them into leggings and may just have to run with it. It could be Super Awesome or a very Bad Idea, depending on how it's executed--we'll have to see.

I've been making a bunch of slippers lately, and i've been thinking about trying something like this. Nice to see somebody's taken the guesswork out of it for me. Wink

They look awesome, and i can't wait to get the yarn and try them out for myself.
