The Chic Moroccan Slippers are cozy, quick, and snuggly warm – and a free crochet pattern in 3 sizes here on Moogly!

Designed on a reader request to match the other Moogly Moroccan Tile Stitch patterns, the Chic Moroccan Slippers crochet pattern includes 3 sizes – based on women’s shoe sizes, the Small fits a 5/6, the Medium fits a 7/8, and the Large fits a 9/10. But it’s the same pattern every time! How?
What changes is the hook size! By simply changing the hook size used, you can make this pattern fit most women’s feet. And the only difference between the right and left feet are the placement of the tie – which you can put wherever you want!
Made with super squishy Red Heart Chic Sheep by Marly Bird, each pair takes less than 1 skein of each color – making this a great go-to pattern for gifts for the holidays!

Helpful Links and Tutorials:
This pattern includes 3 sizes, all made with the exact same set of instructions. Sizing is done via the hook size used. Please see the hook and sizing info above to determine which hook you should use to make your size.
Additionally, the right and left foot instructions are the same – the difference is on which side you put the bow of the tie.
The first half of each slipper is made in rounds, and then the instructions switch to rows.
If you prefer not to use the Chainless Starting Double Crochet, substitute a ch 3.
When removing the hook from an active loop, place a stitch marker in that loop to prevent losing stitches.
