About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a cozy project to keep your toes warm this fall and winter, you’re in the right place. Our basic crochet house shoes are a fun weekend project you can enjoy all week long.

With this project you’ll learn how to crochet the basic sole shape, a skill you can apply to any crochet slipper. Then you’ll learn how to construct the sides and top of the foot.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as video tutorials and written instructions to walk you through our basic crochet house shoes from start to finish.
