help with the simply felted slippers.

One of the most commonly asked questions regarding the crochet pattern for the Simply Felted Slippers is with regards to row 1 of the "Continuing in rows" section, so I just thought that I would take a moment to offer a more detailed explanation.

Before starting row 1 (of the "Continuing in rows" section) of the Simply Felted Slippers you do not turn. Depending on the size of slipper that you are making, this row is only 7 or 8 sc long. This is because the slipper is oval shaped and the extra 7 or 8 stitches are needed to bring you to the top center of the oval, which is where you want the opening of the ankle to start.

At the end of row 1 (of the "Continuing in rows" section) you first ch 1, then turn, and proceed onto row 2. For row 2 you proceed as follows: sc the very first 2 stitches together, work 1 sc in the next 30 or 32 sc (depending on the size you are making), ch 1 and turn. Row 3 is worked in the same manner as row 2, beginning with sc2tog (single crochet 2 together).

Hope this helps! If you have any additional questions please feel free to ask away in the comments section of this post, or if you prefer you can contact us at

  1. I've made several pair of these slippers, and like how the oval 'toe' helps shape and make the slippers fit better. Thanks for the tips!
