  1. Oh my gosh, SO happy to find this pattern for free! I've been looking for so long. They're so adorable!! I also just taught myself to crochet and can't wait to try these out when I get a little better 🙂 Thanks so much!

  2. I love these slippers. I added a slip stitch at the end of each row. Since i have very wide feet i changed the stitch count from 18 to 28 by repeating row two once. And for the opening I worked 22 tsc, leaving 6 open. I have a total of 18 rows, they came out beautifully and i even added a half double edging around the top. Thanks for the free pattern.

  3. Thank you so much for this pattern–I have size 13WW feet and this is the first crochet slipper pattern I have ever found that even comes close!! It's been 30 years since I've crocheted, but I have lots of experience working with larger hooks and will try an I-hook and work my way up until I find the right size. Again, my toes thank you!
