Kids Quick and Easy Slipper Socks – Free Crochet Pattern

This is a free crochet pattern for how-to make my new Kid’s Quick and Easy Slipper Socks – this includes Toddler and Big Kids sizes! They are a great stashbusting project, and worked in purely half double crochets throughout.

This has been my most requested crochet pattern – a kid’s version of my adult Quick and Easy Slipper Socks – patterns found below! It took me some time to find a chart I could use for kid’s foot sizing, and then I needed a little motivation, but it’s finally here! And since I don’t have any kids to try this pattern on, I had it tested for fit by a few makers.

Before we go on, it’s important to measure the diameter, and the finished slipper BEFORE trying on. Red Heart Super Saver is a great yarn for so many different projects, but it’s also a little inconsistent. Just because you gauge with one color, does not mean you will meet gauge worked in another color – I’ve learned this the hard way. I am providing the diameters to check against, and the finished slipper should be about 2″ smaller than the actual foot length. I recommend measuring every time you make a pair.

Women’s Quick & Easy Slipper Socks in 9 US Sizes

Men’s Quick & Easy Slipper Socks in 13 US Sizes

Materials:

  • Less than 120 Yards of Worsted Weight #4 Yarn – I used Red Heart’s Super Saver in Spring Green (Bright Green), either Soft Navy or Denim (Dark Blue), and Bonbon Prints
  • I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:

Yarn Alternatives: Bernat’s Super Value Yarn, Caron’s One Pound, Hobby Lobby’s Crafters Secret.

I did make and test out some slippers using Vanna’s Choice Yarn, and while they worked up well, the yarn wasn’t as durable as the Super Saver yarn and became rather frizzy rather quickly. I also choose the Super Saver yarn because it has a nice cushion to it, and feels quite nice as it hugs your feet. For anyone with concerns regarding the rough feel – it will get softer after the first wash.

Time Spent:

Hour and a half or less (depending on size)

Sizes Included:

Included are Toddler’s US Sizes 7 through 9.5, and Big Kids US Sizes 10 through 7.5.

Foot sizes are included below. Choose the one best suited for your foot. Half sizes included for reference, but slipper size will be to whole size.

Gauge:

12 HDC by 7 Rows – 4″ x 3″

Abbreviations:

HDC – Half Double Crochet

Pattern Notes:

Shoe sizes are not the same throughout – I have learned that through much research as I am sure many of you have realized while shoe shopping. Foot lengths are included below – choose the one that best suits your foot. For example, I wear a size 8.5 sneaker and 9 sandal. My foot size is 10″ so following the numbers below, I made myself a pair of the size 9 – 9.5 slippers.

Having the beginning increase split on either side of the beginning chain helps keep the seam straight, and also adds to the ease of keeping a looser tension.

Joining is to be done into the first half double crochet, not the beginning chain.

I suggest weaving in beginning tail after finishing round 3.

Finished slipper will be about two inches shorter than foot. If using other yarns other than I named, your ease could/will probably vary.
