It’s starting to look a lot like slippers!


Big Foot Slippers

You know what they say about a guy with big feet?  He needs big slippers!

The the first sign in my house that colder weather is coming…The Big Guy needs new slippers!  This is the only kind of slippers he’ll wear, made by me and designed years ago just for his size 13s.

In about two weeks, it’ll be a year since I posted this little gem of a pattern, which itself was designed in 2000.  This year’s pair was made with my favorite new yarn, I Love This yarn.  I love how the earthiness of the colors all come together for the finished product.

If you make a Sew Awesome Craft or any pattern, craft or recipe from sewhooked,  I’d love to see a photo.  Email me or add it to the sewhooked flickr group.

My hubby is tall…very tall, almost six and a half feet tall.  I adoringly refer to him as The Big Guy.  I’m 5’5″, so I guess you can see what I’d call him that.

He has big feet, too.

He loves slippers and I spent years making slippers from traditional patterns for him, but they blew out on him like no one’s business.  You just can’t put a big man in a pair of slippers made with one strand of yarn.  They don’t last.

According to my original pattern, I designed the Big Foot Slippers back in 2000.  I’ve since made a dozen or so pairs, altering here and there for smaller feet.  These are easy to make and work up quickly because they’re made with three strands of yarn.  I use acrylic worsted because it’s easy to wash and holds up well to the wear and tear of a big man wearing slippers!

  • 3 colors of worsted weight acrylic yarn
  • “N” hook
  • yarn needle

Three yarns are held together throughout.

Round 1 – ch 6, join with sl st into ring, ch 3, 14 dc in ring

Round 2 – ch 3, 1 dc in join (1 dc, 2 dc around), join with sl st

Round 3 to 8 – ch 3, dc around, join with sl st

Round 9 to 14 – ch 3, dc around, don’t join, ch 3 turn (except last round). Note – You can add more or less rows here, depending on the size of the foot you’re crocheting for. To finish, whip stitch up the back using the outside loops only. Finish off.

Optional: Evenly sc around the slipper opening, join with a sl st, finish off.
