Big Ribbon Slippers (Crochet)(Updated)

If you’re looking for a quick and practical crochet project for the weekend, check out the Big Ribbon Slippers for Two from Katia.

Katia Big Ribbon SlippersDownload the free pattern from our website.

This pattern is pretty straightforward, but it does has a photo tutorial element. Because of the pictures, the pattern layout is big and you might be better keeping it open on your computer than trying to print it.

UPDATE: Ok, so it turns out other people don’t think this pattern is as straightforward as I do. So here are some tips for navigating it.

You’re starting at the toe and working toward the heel.

The toe is worked in the round, the foot is worked flat, then the heel is joined and worked in the round.

If you look at the middle of the right side of the page you’ll see a section that says “Pattern” which is the pattern in a chart form. It’s a formula, which should make the slippers easy to resize, once you get the hang of it. The guide for the symbols in the chart is on the upper left side.

They used the slipper with the yellow toe and grey body as the example. So the chart has rows 1 to 6 in yellow for the toe and the rest of the rows in grey for the foot and heel.

I hope that helps!

Considering the slippers are crocheted using a J hook, you’ll almost be done making them before the pattern finishes printing!

The slippers are crocheted using two colors of the new Big Ribbon yarn.
