6.5 mm crochet hook
Size 6 super bulky yarn (I used about 1/3 skein of Bernat Blanket)
SC = single crochet (go through chain, yarn over, pull through, yarn over pull through the two stitches on your hook)
DC = double crochet (yarn over, go through chain, yarn over pull through, yarn over pull through 2, yarn over pull through last two)
Treble Crochet (yarn over twice, go through chain, yarn over pull through, yarn over pull through two, yarn over pull through two, yarn over pull through last two)
I wear a size 8.5-9 women’s US and these were a ~bit~ loose on me. (I’m thinking they would’ve been more snug if I was also wearing thick fuzzy socks!)
You can start with any number of chains as long as it fits across the widest part of your foot.
For length, you will do as many rows to fit the length of your foot. (I did 14 rows)
First make a slip knot and chain 8 (or as many needed to cover the width of your foot)
Row 1: 1 sc in the second chain from the hook. *1 dc in the next stitch, 1 sc in the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Chain 3 and turn.
Row 2: Sc in the second stitch in (on top of the dc). The chain three counts as the first dc. *sc in the next stitch and then dc in the stitch after*. Repeat from * to * to the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn.
Row 3: Sc in the first stitch (on top of the last dc you did in the last round). *dc in the next stitch, sc in the stitch after*. Repeat from * to * till the end.
REPEAT ROWS 2 AND 3 UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR DESIRED LENGTH
An easy way to remember how to work this pattern is that if your first stitch when you turn is a dc then you should have chained one and do a sc in that first stitch. If your SECOND stitch is a dc then you would have chained 3 and then skipped the first stitch (single crochet) and have single crocheted on top of the double crochet.

SIDES OF SHOE
Once your shoe is of the desired length, you will chain 3 and turn your work so that you are working down the length of the sole.
Row 1: You will dc around the perimeter of the sole and slip stitch to the first dc. Chain 3.
Row 2: Start dc’ing from the second stitch all the way around until the last 5 stitches. In the last 5 stitches you will sc and chain 2 (counts as first dc of next row)
TOP OF SHOE
Row 1: In the second chain dc across to the end. Chain 2 & turn.
Repeat row 1 until the top piece is long enough to cover the top of your foot so that your foot does not fall out of the shoe when wearing it. (I did 4 rows)
ATTATCHING TOP TO THE SHOE
To attach the top to the rest of the shoe you will chain one and line up the edges of the top to the edges of the sides of the shoe. Now you’re going to sc along these two edges, seaming them shut as if you were joining two pieces in a side seam or a hat. You will work this starting from the left side, around the front and up the right side of the top of the shoe. There is a good visual of this in the video! Once you reached the beginning, chain 3.
TOP FLAP OF SHOE
After chaining three we will now be creating 4 more treble crochets across those 5 stitches to create the top of the shoe. You will skip the first stitch and place a treble crochet in the second.
At the end, bind off and tuck yarn.
Fold over the treble crochet flap and thread some yarn through the underside so each loose end of the yarn is coming out of the top. Tie in a bow and you’re done! There is a good visual of this in the video too!
Don’t forget to make 2!
