13 Lovely Slippers and Socks Crochet Pattern ideas
#2 Acorn Free Slippers Crochet Pattern
Autumn is starting and it’s time to do all the warm and comfortable things, especially for lounging at home. I don’t know about you, but I’m always cold so I love having different things to stick in. This week, I wanted to make some comfortable and easy slipper patterns with you. I’ve collected some of my favorite free crochet slippers patterns from some great designers, so let’s dive right into it! If you want to see slippers for baby, my Crossover Baby Booties knit model is here and my Baby Tinkerbell Slippers are here. Also, if you get my free ebook The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet, there are 12 patterns for all kinds of things, including two more crochet patterns for baby booties!
Fall is in the air and the chipmunks are harvesting their harvest from my garden, each acorn neatly stacked and ready to comfort and nurture in the cool months ahead. The seed stitch on these slippers reminds me of these piles of acorns, and you will never lose your slippers if you hang them from their stems (the little I-Cord loop on the cuff).
A quick note on the thread: I like the options. I have been knitting for 25 years and designing (first for myself and then for my knitting students) for the last 15 years. (You can thank my students and my LYS manager for encouraging me to jump in and put my work there.) She is a VERY weird knitter with no stash. So while I designed this pattern in collaboration with my local yarn store, Yarns By Design in Oakmont, PA, to use a special yarn custom-dyed for them by Flower Hill Fleeces, I encourage you to use what you have in your stash: fingering DK or Aran weight. All you have to do is change the number of threads you join and you have a perfect project to get rid of things.
