Crochet ballet slippers are one of my favorite items to make. These are super simple and quick to make. This is an updated version of my previous pattern. In this post, I will show you how to make slippers using two colors of yarn.
This pattern is written to make slippers that will fit women’s sizes 6 1/2 to 7 1/2. Instructions for making them larger at the end of the pattern. The video tutorial can be found below the written pattern.
- Red Heart Super Saver in Lemon and Light Grey
- F Hook (I only use Clover Soft Touch hooks these days!)
* Starting with Light Grey
R1 – CH 2 and five SC in the first chain from the hook. Join with a SS.
R2 – CH 2 and 2 DC in each stitch around (10 stitches). Join with a SS.
R3 – CH 2 and 2 DC in each stitch around (20 stitches). Join with a SS.
R4 – CH 2 and 2 DC in the next stitch and DC in the next stitch. Continue with 2 DC in the next stitch and DC in the next until you reach the end (30 stitches). Join with a SS. Tie off.
* Switch to Lemon
R5 thru R9 – CH 2 and DC in each stitch around. Join with a SS. Tie off.
* Switch back to Light Grey
R10 – CH 2 and DC in the next 21 stitches (22 stitches, includes the first chain 2).
R11 – CH 2 and DC in each stitch across. CH 2 and turn.
R12 thru R16 – DC in each stitch across. (You will now begin the top edging in the next row.)
* This pattern will fit a foot size of about 6 1/2 to 7 1/2. You can make the slippers larger by simply adding rows at this point. I believe each row will equal about a half size. So, for a size 8 1/2, add two rows.
R20 – CH 2 and working along the top edge of the slipper, SC all the way around the top edge. This gives the slipper a finished look. Tie off leaving a very long end (it will be used for sewing the piece together).
Using a tapestry needle or your crochet hook, sew the back heel of the shoe together with the long end of the yarn. Just weave the yarn through and tie it off at the bottom of the heel. Weave in the extra yarn on the bottom of the shoe with the tapestry needle.
