ORIENTAL STYLE SLIPPERS  This is my own original pattern

This pattern fits a mans size 11, as I made these for my son. Adjust the pattern accordingly for the size that you need.

MATERIALS

Small amount of yarn, color of your choice

size H crochet hook

two pieces of plastic canvas - cut to fit the sole of your slipper

two pieces of quilt batting - cut to fit the size of your slipper

Two buttons of your choice - I used ying yang buttons

Coordinating shade of puffy paint - optional.

SOLE - make 4

ROW 1: Chain 4, SC (single crochet) in second chain from hook and across. Chain 1, turn. 3 SC made.

ROW 2: 2 SC in first stitch, 1 SC in each stitch across to last stitch. 2 SC in last stitch. Chain 1, turn. 5 SC made.

ROW 3: Repeat row 2. Chain 1, turn. 7 SC made.

ROW 4-: Repeat row 2. Chain 1, turn. 9 SC made.

ROWS 5-10: 1 SC in each stitch across. Chain 1, turn. 9 SC made.

ROW 11: SC decrease in first two stitches. SC in each stitch across to last two stitches. SC decrease last two stitches. Chain 1, turn. 7 SC made.

ROWS 12-16: SC in each stitch across. Chain 1, turn. 7 SC made.

ROW 17: SC decrease in first two stitches. SC in each stitch across to last two stitches. SC decrease in last two stitches. Chain 1, turn. 5 SC made.

ROW 18: SC decrease in first two stitches. SC in each stitch across to last two stitches. SC decresae in last two stitches. Chain 1, turn. 3 SC made.

ROWS 19-21: Now we are working around the ENTIRE sole. SC in each stitch around the entire sole, using a marker in your last stitch so you'll know when the new row starts. This is because these weren't quite large enough for my son's foot, and I needed to make them larger. If you need a smaller size you may not need to do these 3 rows. At the end of the third row, join with a slip stitch and fasten off.

Now, to put the soles together. Cut a 2 pieces of plastic canvas and 2 pieces of quilt batting to fit just inside the soles of your slippers. Sandwich one piece of plastic canvas and one piece of the batting in between two of the soles that you've just made and slip stitch the two soles together. The plastic canvas side is the bottom, or outside, of your sole and the quilt batting side is the top, or inside, of your sole. The plastic canvas stiffens them up a little, and the quilt batting is just for comfort.
