This pattern uses American crochet terms.

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.
10 dc = 4 inches

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!

These look fantastic! What a clever way to make this pom pom!
Thanks so much, Maria! I was really happy with the way the fur pom pom turned out. 🙂 Have a great day!
Chrissy at Adventures in DIY says
These are so cute! I think I’ll know what my family members will be getting for Christmas!! (it’s never too late to start planning Christmas gifts, right? lol)
Thanks for always sharing cute projects. I still use my slouchy beanie that I made from your pattern and I LOVE it!
Hi Chrissy! Thanks so much! And yes, NEVER to early to starting planning Christmas!
Live these!! Would love to see a video tutorial on them too 🙂 xx
Okay great! I will work on getting one done. 🙂
I would also love to see a video tutorial as well!!! ❤❤
Would love to make these for my sister and I but work better off of seeing a video!!
I am struggling with this pattern for some reason, even had a co-worker help me who is an avid crocheter to no avail. A video for this would be wonderful as I love the look of these slippers over others I’ve found and would like to make them. ❤❤
Hi Chele! I’m sorry you are having trouble with the pattern. I will try to get a video put together soon. 🙂
Thank you for this wonderful pattern! I am dyslexic & struggle with written patterns. You wrote it in a way that was easy to understand. I have paid for several slipper patterns and this is the only slipper pattern that works for me. Bonus, it was free! I am on my third pair now. Great design great instructions. Bravo!
That is so great to hear, Danielle! So glad the pattern worked for you! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a nice comment. It really makes my day. 🙂
Ane Samuelsen says
I am a little confused by the number of chains in the beginning of the recipe – when I chain 22 and after that chain 3 more and chrochet a dc in the 22nd chain – after that chrochet 19 from the 21st chain “backwards” – it leaves me with 2 chains to chrochet the 6 dc in the same chain????
Do I just begin with 21 chains and then follow the recipe?
I like the slippers you have made and I want to make them too :-).
Elisa Solana says
You’re right Ane! Happens the same to me doing the small size, the starting chain must be one chain less! Come on!! We get it dear ??????
You don’t ch 3 after the initial ch 20, just dc in the 3rd ch from the hook, that should help you!
I love all your patterns, love love this one. I have seen many patterns with two strands of a smaller weight yarn together and wondering if you use something chunkier or bulkier that would be similar would you get the same results? Or is there a particular reason to use two strands – like it is better for a slipper?
Thanks, Sage! No there’s not really a particular reason I did two strands together, other than I wanted to use that yarn and liked the look I got with it. I think a No. 5 bulky weight would probably work well as a replacement. 🙂
Hi Alexis. Our readers will love these crocheted slippers. Thanks very sharing your tutorial. We’ve included it in our latest craft inspiration. https://craftylikegranny.com/creativity-is-contagious/ Cheers Jodie 🙂
Can anyone tell me what size foot (shoe size) these slippers fit. I want to make them for a friend who wears size 7.5 shoes. Would the slippers with a 20 chain starting chain fit 7.5?
joan dozier says
Can this pattern be printed? I do not wish to sit at my computer and crochet these slippers.
I absolutely love these slippers!!! I’ve made 3 pairs for myself already 2 of them with huge Pom poms 🙂 I made them for Christmas gifts for my family last year too and they were a hit! Thank you so much for this quick easy pattern! I’ve used up so much stash yarn too
Maria Smith says
Hi I don’t understand chain 20 then chain 3 ?
I am having difficulty with the stitch counts. If I CH 20, then turn and DC in the 3rd chain, you have 17 CH left. Then if you CH 17 as the instructions say, you are finished with the row. But the instructions say to 6DC in the last chain. There isn’t one to do that. Please clarify!
