A Crochet Project – Granny Square Slippers

I cut my teeth with yarn projects teaching myself to crochet. My Nanny taught me to chain with a hook at the same time she taught me to knit. I didn’t pick it up again until several years later. I taught myself with one of the Coats and Clark how-to pamphlets. I made lots of dishcloths and some pineapple doilies. I have also made some amigurumi projects. When I saw these slippers at Purlbee, I had to try them! This is a pretty simple pattern, especially if you already know how to make granny squares. If you don’t know how, that’s no problem either, because Purlbee has a great granny square tutorial. I had to go down a hook size to get the correct guage. Gauge is very important for these, because even a 1/4 inch difference in square size will make a much larger slipper. I hooked these for my Mom’s birthday gift. They were a perfect choice because she loves bright, cheerul color.
Here are the specs:
Pattern: ‘Granny Square Slippers’ from Purlbee

  1. We made these as kids but the bottom square was one big square instead of 4 small squares.
    Wonderful memory, thanks!
