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!
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!

Please tell me, what is the size of yarn…
it says Bulky weight yarn in the instructions 🙂
where are the instructions on yarn size and weight?
1. And how many stitches are there total in row 3??
2. One more thing..I know its not VERY important that the size of yarn and hook should be same but, what is the suitable yarn size with 4.0 milli meter crochet hook
Give me a brief respond to point “2”.. About which yarn size is suited with different size of yarns..
The stitch counts and yarn details are all on this page: https://www.mooglyblog.com/simple-chunky-cable-crochet-slippers/
If you use a 4mm hook, you’re going to have very small slippers! You really need either a bulky yarn or double strand a medium weight yarn.
Yeah thanks.. it’s OK but i am asking for my information to mount… please tell me the fitting numbers with different sizes of hooks!! sizes from 1 to 8 milli meter !
I accidentally bought the LB thick and quick yarn and it’s looking way bigger than yours; is it much thicker than chunky? I don’t think they had the chunky where I shopped, but this seems too thick. I’m also a little. Unsure if I’m slip stitching in the right spot…think I was doing it in the 1st double crochet…is that right? Thanks for your pattern and any help you can give.
Hi Dotty! Unfortunately the Thick and Quick is significantly thicker than the Chunky. It does sound like you are sl stitching in the right place though!
Thanks for both answers, Tamara. ? I hope to find the right yarn soon or something else close enough to use.
for row 4 when you do the fptc in the video it look like you are going down to row 2 and not 3 ?
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.
Totally Awesome! Thank you! Watched the video and it was a great help!
I’m so glad to hear it Barbara! Thank you!
Thank you so very much for taking all the time and interest to do this tutorial. It is awesome. You are so clear and detailed.
Thank you so much Marie! I’m glad you liked it!
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.
I am having trouble with the 3rd row, as with, dc in the next 9 (3) sts, 2dc in next st) 5 times, Is the (3) just the size, and I don’t come up the 25 stitches at the end. its more .Trying to get video up but computer is slow and old like me.LOL Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Katie
Hi Katie! The (3) is for the larger size. 🙂
Video was extremely helpful. You do crochet kinda fast for beginners to watch and learn but I just rewinded the video a few times to watch stitches a few times. I love the look of these and that you make them for wide feet as well as 2 length sizes. I’m planning to make a few pairs for myself and some for Christmas gifts. One helpful tip my mother gave me as she crochets doll dresses not slippers ugh lol is putting a safety pin on my chain so I don’t mistake it as the 1st stitch in previous round or row.
Thank you! I’ve learned to slow down over the years since… I think! 🙂
