Slippers with Spike Stitch

slipper1 This is the first crocheted slippers that I made. I’m not so good in making slippers, counting the stitches in a round gave me headache. Choosing the pattern is also not easy (I’m not a designer) . There are many free patterns of crochet slippers I found, but I just can’t find the one that I want.

I want a simple and easy to make, but the sole and the side should use different colours so it will look like real slippers. Finally, after spending hours browsing the free patterns. I chose the patern from here. And as usual, I modified the pattern in the middle of making it 🙂 .

slipper2I made this slippers using a thick yarn that I found in local market in Chiang Mai, I made with 2 strands of it. For the sole part, I used almost 1 ball of black yarn each, and for the side and the top of slippers I used 1 ball of maroon yarn for each foot. I decided to stop following the pattern when 1 ball of my maroon yarn almost finished while making the side of the slippers.

To make the slippers look different, I made the edging using yarn that I bought from CnM. I used spike stitch and reverse stitch (my favourite stitch for edging).

I will give this slippers to my friend Shari, this is another present for her. I hope this will fit on her 🙂 .

    Ira, itu aku pake benangnya bukan benang katun tapi benang acrylic yg ketemu di pasar lokal sini. Coba cari benang yang tebal aja, kalau kurang tebal di lapis 2 sekali jalan. Ayo di coba.
