The Inspiration for My Easy Crochet Slipper Socks
Whatever the season, I always love an evening at home snuggled up on the couch with my crochet. These not-too-bulky-yet-oh-so-snuggly crochet slippers are made with Lion Brand Yarn Feels Like Butta. They are my new go-to slippers for lounging all year long and are so easy to make! Make a pair for yourself or as a DIY gift with this free crochet pattern.
How To Crochet Slipper Socks
One of the hardest parts about crocheting matching pairs or slippers or mittens is making them the same size. As I mentioned above, Feels Like Butta yarn makes it really simple to crochet with an even tension, and even tension = matching slippers that turn out the same size! Hooray! If you are intimidated by crocheting slipper socks – don’t be. Crocheting these isn’t much different from crocheting a hat. If you want to start with something even more basic – try these Simple Cotton Slipper Socks.
New to crocheting slipper socks? Here is a quick disclaimer! Yarn slippers are SLIPPERY. If these will be worn on any hard floors (tile, wood, laminate, etc), I highly recommend adding something to the bottom to reduce the amount of slip. This can be done with fabric puff paint or sewing a grippy fabric to the bottom of your slippers. Make & Do Crew has a great tutorial here for adding leather to the bottom of your slippers.
Cozy Yarn = Cozy Slippers
The name ‘Feels Like Butta’ is pretty self explanatory, but let me take a moment to let you know that this yarn is the SOFTEST. They also started carrying the bonus bundles at Michael’s – so it’s even easier to add to your stash now!
That being said, you will only need one or two small skeins of Lion Brand Feels Like Butta Yarn to make the Homebody Slipper Socks. I love patterns that can be turned into one skein projects, and if you want to make solid colored slipper socks you will only need one skein! But I also love that Feels Like Butta Yarn is available in so many different complementary colors, and so of course I decided to add an accent toe and heel to my pair as pictured.
This yarn works up like a dream and when working with it, it’s very easy to maintain consistent tension. It’s just the right amount of fuzzy to be so soft, but not so much that it tangles and catches while you are working with it. In short, it will make your next most cherished pair of slipper socks. You could make them as a gift, but I don’t think you’ll want to give them away!

Overall Pattern Notes:
• The chain stitches at the beginning of each round/row do not count as a stitch.
• Size S fits sizes 6.5-8; M fits sizes 8-9.5, L fits sizes 9.5-11.
• These slipper socks have some stretch and the sizes are forgiving.
• The last stitch of each round is attached to the first stitch of the round with a slip stitch
• Please be cautious wearing these on hard floors! They are slippery. I added puffy fabric paint to the bottom of mine to reduce the slip.
