This pattern includes instructions for two sizes – Small and Large. Size Small should be about 9 inches (23 cm) long when finished, and size Large about 10 inches (25.5 cm) long. Keep in mind that they will stretch out quite a bit worn. Instructions for size Large will be shown in bold parentheses. For example, “ch 10 (12)” means to work 10 chain stitches for size Small and 12 for size Large.

At this point, you have a pair of simple crochet slippers that you could just wear as is, but what makes these slippers special, is the fur pom-pom! So let’s fancy our crochet slippers up a bit, shall we?
Fur yarn is the secret to getting these super cute and fluffy pom-poms. I really love the way these cuties turned out, but I do need to warn you that making them is definitely a bit messy. Keep your lint roller handy!
- Start by wrapping the fur yarn around your fingers. Keep wrapping until the stack of loops are about as full as you want the finished pom pom to be.
- Pull a 12″ piece of your plain worsted weight yarn around the middle of the loops, and tie tightly with a double knot.
- Slide the fur loops off your fingers and cut through the loops on both sides. At this point you have a messy pom pom with two long yarn strings.
- Shape up your pom pom by snipping off longer strands. Keep trimming until it has a nice round shape.
- Using a yarn needle, pull your pom pom’s worsted weight yarn tails through the front of the slipper to the inside.
- Finally, secure the pom pom in place with a double knot, and weave in the worsted weight yarn ends using your yarn needle.
And that’s it! Your new crochet slippers are finished and ready to keep your toes nice and warm through this cold winter!
