Step 1: Materials & Instructions

Detailed instructions: http://mommyknows.com/easy-norwegian-house-slippers-the-crochetted-version-by-mommyknows/

My materials:

3 colours of wool yarn (suitable for felting) (4 weight, I think)

1 crochet needle (mine is a size 5 from Lizzy’s Klutz kit)

I did the whole pattern in single crochet.


When you are knitting, you are supposed to knit one long ‘L’ shape, 6 squares long and 3 squares across. I wasn’t quite sure how to do this crocheting, so I decided to crochet two pieces and stitch them together.

If Blue = 1, Green = 2, and Cream = 3, then the pattern for the slippers is:

Pattern for 5 square piece is: 1 – 2 – 1 – 3 – 2
Pattern for 3 piece square is: 1 – 3 – 1

Step 2: Felting

Once you have sewn up your slippers, you'll need to felt them.

Felting is really just the washing and shrinking of your knit (crochet) item. So just pop these in a hot wash with detergent and shrink away. If they’re not felted or small enough keep washing them. I washed this pair once on regular cycle with jeans and then again on a sanitary cycle with towels.

<p>I love these! You have to use 100% wool yarn or they won't felt properly. I make and sell Joe's Toes slipper soles they're great for projects like this if you want a rubber or suede sole or an extra layer of ready made felt - I cut them to shape and punch all the holes ready for stitching. joestoes.co.uk </p>
<p>I recycle awsum sweaters from the thrift store- you can unravel the sweater and re-knit or re-crochet it, or just cut and sew the sweater into whatever, then felt it... look in any dept- men's, women's, kids, or even blankets!</p>
Before I made my Instructables, I hadn't seen yours (I found it searching for a pattern for felted items.....not really slippers) I hope you don't mind that I made them too (I did give you credit) <br> <br>I have to say I LOVE your directions, I may have to try again to learn how to knit, or figure out how to convert other knitted patterns into crocheting. <br> <br>I'm now looking for more wool yarn (cheap) to make slippers for my daighter, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. <br> <br>GREAT job
Measurements and/or gauge would be extremely helpful
I love these! Thanks for sharing!
These are fantastic for many reasons. They actually look like something I would put on my feet and the offset triangles is very crafty. The cuffs and the felting give them more unique quality too. I'm bookmarking this one. Thanks
<p>The instructions are a bit vague.&nbsp; I&nbsp;found better info from the original artical.&nbsp; They are cute slippers though.</p>
Thank you!<br />
Cute!!!&nbsp;I&nbsp;want some! Great job!
