Kids DC basic slippers

4.5 mm hook
#4 worsted weight yarn in 2 different colors (I used 2 shades of green)

This pattern is very flexible. You can add rows or omit rows to fit your child’s particular size.

dc – double crochet
sc – single crochet
slst – slip stitch
F/o – fasten off
MC – magic circle
ch – chain
inc – increase

Pattern Notes:
*Chain 1 at the beginning of the row does NOT count as a stitch.
*You can begin the slipper with a magic circle or chain 4 slst in the first chain to make a ring.

Turn your slipper inside out. We are now going to close the seam.

Slip stich down the seam to close the back of the slipper.

F/O and turn the slipper right side out.

With 2nd color, attach the 2nd color yarn starting with a slip knot.

Attach the yarn at the back of the slipper.
SC around the top of the slipper. Make the stitches even on both side the of the slippers. I added 24 stitches to my slipper. Make sure its not too loose or too tight.

F/O and weave in ends.

You are done!
