Ladies Crochet Slippers Pattern
2 balls Princess Pearl Crochet Cotton, No. 3, any color desired;
1 crochet hook, No. 5;
1 pair quilted satin soles;
Ribbon, about 1 1/2 yards, No. 7.
Make a chain of 12. Make a single crochet in each stitch for 5 stitches and 3 in the 6th stitch, then 1 in each of the remaining 5 stitches. Turn and chain 1. Take up the back part of each stitch and put 3 in the middle of every row, until you have 30 rows of 15 ribs. This forms the vamp.
Turn and take up the back part of each stitch for 21 stitches. This forms the depth of side. Turn and make 1 chain and take up the back part of every stitch. Make the desired length for sole and crochet to the other side of vamp.
If a point in the back is desired, it can be easily made by adding stitches at the top of the row and drawing after the center of the back is reached. Work around the top of the slipper with a long stitch and 2 chain between, making the long stitches just far enough apart not to draw, fasten, and make a chain of 5. Make a long stitch between the 2 long stitches of the row just made, chain 2, and so on around the slipper, and fasten to the chain of 5.
Holding the slipper sideways, make 5 long crochet under the long crochet of the last row, and fasten down under the next long crochet with a short stitch, under the long crochet where the 5 long crochet were fastened down with a short crochet. Make 5 long crochet and fasten down under the next long crochet. This makes a fluted border. Continue around the slipper and fasten with a short crochet.
Carefully sew the crocheted tops to the satin soles of the correct size, and finish with a neatly made bow of satin ribbon on each slipper, selecting ribbon of any color desired, either to match the color of the slipper or some contrasting shade.
