This crochet mukluks free pattern is the perfect treat for your feet this season! Find Part 2 of the pattern below or you can purchase the complete ad-free, printable PDF with hole-poking ruler here.
This free crochet mukluks pattern is part of a collaboration with my friends at Lion Brand yarn. This post contains affiliate links.
In Part 1 of the free Taos Slipper Boots pattern, we worked created the foundation rounds on the flip flop sole and worked the front of the mukluks. Today, we'll be crocheting the back of the mukluks, seaming the two pieces together and joining them to the flip flop base.
Like I said in Part 1, these crochet mukluks are a great project for people who have never made a pair of crochet shoes before because most of the crocheting is done separate from the flip flops, just like you're making a regular pair of slippers. (You can find all my free flip flop crochet patterns here if you'd like and read a list of FAQs all about making them here.)
In fact, if you don't want to use flip flops for your soles, you can crochet a simple sole and work the foundation rounds into it as if it was a flip flop.
In either case, I think you'll find these to be a quick, cozy and super satisfying project!

Joining Top & Back of Boot
• Weave in any ends before seaming the boot pieces together.
• The boot pieces are seamed together with single crochet. You’ll want the “front” of the single crochet stitches showing on the front of the boots on both seams. This means you’ll work one seam from the ankle up to the top of the boot and then the second side you’ll seam in the opposite direction. (Just keep the toe of the boot facing you and you’ll be good.)
With right sides facing out, use stitch markers to pin the “top” of the boot to the “back” of the boot. Take care to align each stripe.
Attach Color C to the point where the back and top pieces meet. Use size L hook.
Seam Row: Ch 1, sc along edge, working at the frequency that gives you the smoothest looking seam.
Fasten off. Repeat in opposite direction on second side.
Joining Boot to Flip Flop Base
• This section can make or break the look of your boots. If you’re not happy with your first attempt, just rip it out and try again!
• Right-handed crocheters, work around the sole counter clockwise. Left-handed crocheters, work around the sole clockwise.
Use stitch markers to pin the boot onto the flip flop base. I find it easiest to pin the toe and the heel sections first and then accommodate whatever is left in the middle. If you do find that there’s a little extra fabric, try to absorb the excess in the middle of the boot where the top/back seams meet.
Attach Color A at 6:00 position. Use size L hook.
Seam Round: Ch 1, sc around sole working into the main boot pieces and Round 1 of the boot base, sl st to join.
Fasten off. Weave in any remaining ends.
Optional: If you plan to wear your new slippers out in the elements, glue the flip flop toe plug back into place in the toe using a glue like E6000.
Adding Pom Pom Ties
Use either a pom pom maker or a piece of cardboard to create four pom poms in Color A.
Cut two 24” strands of Color A to create the laces.
Thread one lace through the ch1sps where Color A and Color B meet at the top of the boots.
Thread a tapestry needle onto the lace. Insert tapestry needle into middle of one pom pom. Remove needle and tie several knots in the lace right below where you want the pom pom placed. Pull knot so that it’s absorbed into the pom pom and cut excess strand of yarn. Repeat with a second pom pom on the other side of the of the lace.
Repeat for second boot.
Proudly pull on your new crochet mukluks--you’re now ready for an ice fishing trip, an artic storm, or just a cozy night spent crocheting by the fireplace!
TIP: When pulling you slippers on, gather the top of the boot in your hand and then insert your foot, like you would when putting on tall socks. This will prevent your beautiful new boots from stretching out.
That was so fun! Now what?
