What Makes A Good Crochet Slipper?
When making slippers, there are a few things that you will want to consider. First, slippers are an item that needs to be durable. They will be on your feet so they’ll take a lot of wear and tear. Therefore, you must onsider the yarn that you are going to us to make your slipper. After all, you want to make sure that it is something that is substantial and durable.
Tip: Want to help increase the longevity of your slippers? Try adding leather pads to the bottom. Remember that this might make the slipper more slippery, so try to find something that isn’t too smooth. Chosen correctly, though, this can make your slippers even more slip-proof. Plus, they’ll last longer.
Another way to help with your slipper to have more traction is to add puff paint or hot glue to the bottom of the slipper. This will give you a little more grip when walking on surfaces such as wood or tile.
You can further increase the durability of your socks by adding some reinforcement thread. While you are working the stitch on the bottom of your slipper, add a strand of nylon thread that will help your stitches from stretching out.
Crochet Slipper Sizes:
Picking the size of your crochet slippers can be a little challenging. Most slippers you want to be on the snug side so that they don’t fall off while you are wearing them. Unlike with a sweater, you want snug or tight rather than too loose.
Important measurements when making slippers are:
- your foot circumference
- foot length
You will take these numbers and subtract an inch from each to get what your finished slipper measurements should be. Why would you go down an inch from your actual foot size? Because your crochet slipper will stretch. Consider what yarn you are using and how much stretch will your fabric have? It is always a great idea to make a swatch to see how it will feel.
Looking for a great reference chart for what your final slipper measurement should be? Check out the resources on Kate Atherley’s website. Although she talks about knitting, the same principals apply to crochet.
