Remember how I said my feet are cold because it’s all cold here super early this year? Well, I don’t know why, as a knitter & crocheter that I never seem to have a good pair of slippers, but I really need to make myself a pair. Now I’m trying to decide which pattern to make. Can you help? Here’s my shortlist.

While I like the ease of slip-on clogs, Mr Evangelist does not like the look of the crocs I bought when I was pregnant and my feet were swelling and I still wanted to take my toddler to the park. This pattern isn’t intended for outdoors (but there are a couple options to make them that way!), but I like the simplicity and the slip-on ease of this crochet knit-look clog slipper pattern. Personally, I think I like the cord-soled option, though
This sweater slipper clog pattern is another contender, also by the same designer, Sophie & Me Pdf Pattern Design. Another clog pattern. Cute and has a fun sweater stripe pattern to it. I love the idea of lining them like this, but I’m not sure I would ever get around to it. My feet just get all cold and I’d want to wear them right away.
I bought this pattern in all the sizes from this designer a few years ago, and it’s a super cute pattern, but I didn’t put a good sole on it, so they wore out quickly on the bottom. The design for the soles is actually really great and would lend itself to using a jute or
Now into more of the knit booties family of slippers, I’ve found this cute pattern for 3-in-1 button boots. They button up into full booties or fold down for the sweet look above.
I’ve also made this crocodile stitch booties pattern from Bonita Patterns a few years ago. I didn’t test my gauge and they ended up being huge, which was unfortunate, but then I had a revelation from above and I pulled them over the hideous crocs that Mr Evangelist hates the look of so much. They ended up looking like giant baby booties, which is kind of funny, but also functional for hiding crocs. The crocs aren’t very cosy inside, so they’re really just for looking ok. The soles were holding up surprisingly well until I washed them and then they fell apart. I still have them, but don’t wear them much because they look bad.
So, what do you think I should make to warm my toes this upcoming season? Let me know here or comment on this pin:
