Home HANDMADE Crochet Snuggly slippers

THESE CUTE SLIPPERS are perfect for keeping little feet warm around the house. They are quick to knit—three sections worked in chunky-weight yarn—and take just over one ball of yarn, so are great value for money. The slippers will be very slippery on hard floors, but are perfect for floors with carpeting.

The shaped heel and back of the slipper is created using the knit 1 front and back (kfb) increase method.
4
Use mattress stitch to sew the seams that form the slipper shape together. Work the stitches loosely in order not to misshape the knitted fabric.
Create the tiny knitted bobbles using the s1 k1 psso (skp) decrease method. Cast off loosely before knitting the ribbed toe section so the stitches sit neatly against each other.
