Am I the only one who is using a much smaller hook to make these? I don't have an L hook and the first time I made them I used a K. But they turned out really huge on loose! I am now down to an I hook, which makes them tighte enough to fit snuggly. I am wondering how everyone else is able to use larger hooks and not make huge slippers. Oh, and for the record, I do not have small feet or anything.

It might be your tension. I crochet pretty tight. Definitely check your tension.

I have made some using an H hook and just one strand of yarn.  They don't work up as fast, but they still turn out just fine.   The bigger hook and 2 strands turned out slippers too big for my feet.  I wear a 6.5.

I have whipped up several pair of these little beauties using the Thick & Quick washable wool yarn, instead of working with two strands, but it seems to work out pretty well!!!

Thanks for this great pattern!!

My first pair:

Most recent, with pink jewel buttons for extra "bling"

Thank you so much for this pattern.. I'm new here to the site and I just found this. I am not the world's greatest crocheter by any far stretch of the imagination. I just finished the first slipper and I'm going to start the second one. These will make great gifts for the coming season. You are very generous in sharing such a great pattern here with  us... Thanks again... Take care and have a great day...  Grin

I am interested in personal swaps. PM me.

Thanks for the crazy easy tute! I modified it a bit, but I definately couldn't have done it without your tute to jump off from. Thank you so much for the awesome pattern. =) since this is my first post it won't let me post a pic, but here's the page for the pic. Thanks again!
