Pozy Toes Crochet Slippers

Posy Toes Crochet Slippers - the perfect slipper for spring and summer! So cute! Free #crochet pattern.

The Posy Toes Crochet Slippers feature flowers that are made as you crochet – no sewing them on later! This means they stand up a bit, giving you a little garden on top of each foot! This would be a great project for stash-busting too, as they only take one skein of yarn, plus a bit of a second skein… or 3 shorter lengths, to make 3 different colored stripes and flowers!

    Thanks for the slipper pattern. It is hard to find pretty crochet patterns for slippers. I’m looking for patterns for children slippers or bedroom slippers.

    Hi there! I have a quick question about the Pozy Toes slipper pattern. I’m at round 4 and am a little confused. You say Ch2 *dc in next (11) 3 sts, 2dc in next. Repeat from * to end. Is the (11) the stitch count for how many times this repeats? Or is it dc in next 3 sts, 2dc in next st, repeat to end?

    Thank you so much for you input on this and for your great patterns!!

      Hi Laura! You caught a typo, which I’ve fixed, but let me explain what the two numbers mean.

      This pattern is written for both Average and Wide width feet, so the numbers refer to the different sizes.
      If you are making the Average width, you’ll read the instructions as: Ch2 *dc in next 11 sts, 2dc in next st. Repeat from * to end.
      If you are making the Wide width, you’ll read the instructions as: Ch2 *dc in next 3 sts, 2dc in next st. Repeat from * to end.

      Does that help?

    I am making these as a birthday gift for my mom (she lives in Iowa and I live in Australia – they are the perfect lightweight gift to send through the mail!) But I have a couple of questions about the “Finishing Instructions”: What do you mean by “Ch 1 and sc evenly around the foot opening, working 2 sc in the side of each row and 1 sc in each sc” – I don’t understand where the 2 sc are meant to go – 2 sc in the same space in the side of each row? Or 2 sc per row side? Also, should step 3 start with: “Using Color B” rather than Color A?

    Thanks so much for sharing this pattern!

      moogly says

      Hi Clare! I’m in Iowa too! :D Ok, so the ch 1 and sc evenly with 2sc in the side of each row and 1 sc in each sc means that if you and I have the same approximate gauge, you’ll want to put two single crochets in the side of the last/first st of each row – since they’re dc rows there should be room to put them separately along the side of the sts. Then at the front of the ankle you’re working into the top of Round 12, so you can just work one stitch in each st. And you’re right about step 3… oops! Thanks for letting me know, I’ll fix that!

        Thanks for explaining that. It makes sense now!

        I really enjoy your website. I always look forward to your new patterns (I have made a few and have several on my “to-do” list) and have so much fun browsing through your pattern roundups! And even though I live in Sydney, I will always be an Iowa girl at heart :)

        Thanks again for your help!

        I did this and it made the opening too large, so had to pull it out :) I just added one sc all the way around and they came out perfect.

    I had been searching for a slipper pattern that wouldn’t be too complicated but still look like a slipper all winter long! Looking at the basic pattern, I don’t know why I didn’t think of this myself! Thank you so much! I love it!

    Martha Gaston says

    Two of my question were answered above. I am so excited. I love the look of the slippers. But look at Row 14 Ch 2 dc in each s ???. Thanks a million for cute slippers.

    They were easy and fast to make! I made it in dark green and light green, the flowers look like four leaf clovers ^__^

    Dot says

    i first noticed this pattern because they are the only crocheted slippers I’ve seen that stand up by themselves and don’t flop over. Also, the design is artistic, not just utilitarian. I found the pattern is very easy to make. They’re comfortable and fit well. I made a pair for myself (photo on my website listed above), and am now making two pairs for a friend who begged me for them. After that, another pair for me. Thank you so much for designing these and making the pattern available!

      Tamara Kelly says

      Basically, you finish your last row, then fold the slipper, like a taco, lengthwise, so that the first stitch of the last row is touching the last stitch of the last row. Then insert the hook through the stitch you just made and the first stitch of the last row, so that it’s through both layers. From here work a sc, which starts a seam on the back of the heel. Continue with a second sc that goes through the second st of the last row and the penultimate st of the last row, etc, until you’ve closed up the back of the slipper. This finds you in the middle of the previous row, at what is now the bottom of the heel. Try the slipper on at this point so you can make sure you have the right length before you cut the yarn. Then cut your yarn and weave in the ends.

      The rest is just working that decorative edge (shown in red) around the foot opening. I hope this helps! :)

    Hi there

    Is there a way to modify it for kiddos? My nieces would love a matching pair to their mamas.i have just started to crochet things other than blankets and I love these slippers!

    Thanks,
    Amanda

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Amanda!

      Thanks! It depends on the size of the feet, but essentially you’d want to stop increasing after round 2 or 3. Then skip to round 6, skip row 12, and shorten the rest as needed. I hope that helps!

      Hi Grace! These particular ones were indeed made with cotton, but you can use the fiber of your choice. :)
