About this Recipe
We love slippers! There is nothing better than slippers on a cozy fall or winter day in Canada, then slipper made as a very special handmade gift from your Aunty (Thank you Aunty!). These little crocheted slipper boots are perfect in the winter months because they are soft enough to put my legs up on the couch and get cozy with a movie, and also soft enough to sit in meditation, but are durable with their leather bottom soles. I am always amazed at the ease at which my Aunties' and Grandmothers' are able to just whip up homemade things. Ever since I was a little girl I remember all costumes were hand sewn, all slippers were hand-crocheted, and all the lovely bedspreads were quilted. It seems as though there is a generation of men and women who learned how to do stuff, and I am lucky that many of them are in my family to pass on these gifts and one days, when I am inspired, also the skills to do these things myself.
1. My Aunty added the little extra cute tassles hanging, so you won't find those in the pattern.
2. The pattern for these crocheted slipper boots is an intermediate and recommends using bulky weight wool yarn in one solid color.
3. These crocheted slipper boots are perfect on slippery hard wood floors, especially in homes that have hard wood stairs. You can move around with ease knowing that you will stay upright.
Tools to make this Crocheted Slipper Boots:

These crocheted slipper boots are perfect on slippery hard wood floors, especially in homes that have hard wood stairs. You can move around with ease knowing that you will stay upright.
They are also great for people like me who like to walk outside in their slippers. Regular crocheted slippers are 'used up' quickly in my world where in simply cannot help myself on a fresh morning to walk outside with a cup of hot cacao to breathe in the fresh air and take the cats for a stroll around the property.
The leather soles on these crocheted slippers are durable and will make these slippers last so much longer than regular crocheted or knitted slippers.
