Crochet slipper boots (free written pattern&Tutorial)

These crochet slipper boots where one of those projects that I didn’t expect much from, I was just playing around with a new design idea and viola! Very cute and comfy slipper boots. 

I think these will be very popular as the design has already been copied and dare I say, stolen several times. Luckily I’m happy to share, so here’s a free written pattern and video tutorial for you guys 🙂

How would you increase the size to a women's size 10?

For the part that's made in the round, just keep adding more rounds until it reaches the beginning of heel. Then, after that you're going to follow the pattern in the row. Try it on as you go. Make sure that the last row covers your heel. Then you can cut the yarn and follow the rest of the pattern. I recommend watching the full video tutorial on our Youtube channel, it'll be helpful to understand what I'm talking about. I'll drop it below. Hope that helps and good luck! https://youtu.be/IJmT1qYzwCk?si=LXx_wpnfWSfkzmG2

Guess it just depends on the person. Personally I can follow written instructions better than any video. Thank you for these directions,

It most certainly does depend on the person. I have friends that only read patters or only watch videos. I personally can't listen to any directions so I design my own lol. You're very welcome Lois, thanks for the comment and your support.
