The Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers have been popular since they debuted a year ago! They take only an evening to make, fit both narrow and wide feet sizes 6 – 11, and use just one skein of yarn. Lovely! But making the cable portion has tripped some people up, and they asked for a video. So here’s how to make the Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers!

Learn how to #crochet the Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers from Moogly with this video tutorial!

Simple Chunky Cable Crochet Slippers Video Tutorial

The original pattern, found HERE, includes a step by step photo tutorial, as well as the written directions and details, so I didn’t want to reproduce those here. If you want to follow along with the video and the written instructions, I recommend opening them up in two tabs so you can go back and forth. Or, watch the video first and then head over to the written pattern – it’s up to you! The video only includes the right foot, but the left is very close, as you’ll see – just watch the numbers before and after the cable sections. Otherwise, they’re the same!

I hope this video helps out those who’ve had trouble. It’s a fun, fast pattern – and the slippers are so warm! If you can’t find Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky, you can try regular Wool Ease doubled up. And with a bit more yarn, you can turn them into boots by adding some simple cuffs! If you’re looking for a way to make them non-stick, be sure to check out this roundup of 7 great non-stick slipper methods!

      It does – it’s been quite a while since I made that video, but there is a photo tutorial on the pattern. I’d follow the written instructions.

    I know this is a dumb question, but since I am a beginner, does the magic circle count as a row when your counting rows?

      Hi Carole! It’s a good question! :) The Magic Circle does not count as a row – it takes the place of a foundation chain, the first row is worked into it.
