Crochet slippers and boot patterns for Adults or kids

This pattern is a basic crochet slipper pattern and is the very same one I use when I make my nieces little red crochet slippers pictured here. I just finish off and did NOT continue working the ankle length.
For a smaller size I use 1 strand of Double knit yarn and a size 4.00 mm hook.
For the Crochet boot pattern just continue to follow the next set of instructions.
(Pattern and special terms used

I used size 4.00mm (UK) hook and Double knit Thick Aran Wool this made a perfect size 6 (UK) European 39 and US 8.5
or, for even extra toasty-ness work with 2 strands of Double knit wool together.

Stitches Used  ( written in US terms
 HDC = Half Double Crochet
How to create the Half Double Crochet Stitch
Make a chain, beginning with the second chain from hook into the chain stitch, catch the yarn and draw it through the stitch. You will now have 3 hooks on your hook. Put the yarn over the hook and draw through all loops at the same time. Leaving 1 loop on the hook. This is a half double crochet

This crochet stitch gives warmth and has a fair amount of elasticity. Also it is best to make your slippers on the smaller side rather than the larger. They will stretch.
Special terms of note:

Always start your 1st Half Double Crochet into the BASE of your chain 3 at the start of every round.
Where stated  finish with a half double crochet into the join slip stitch of previous row (this helps to give the increase shape required for a snug fit (1 extra stitch being created at either side of the chain)

The Basic Slipper Crochet Pattern

Rnd 1 Magic Circle work 6 HDC into magic circle
 (or chain 3, slip into first and work 6 hdc into ring created)
Rnd 2 : Ch 2 , (working into the base of chain st ) 2 HDC in each stitch around, slip to join (12)
Rnd 3: Ch 2. 1 hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. repeat around. Join.(18)
Rnd 4: HDC in each stitch around, creating an extra stitch by working HDC into the previous rounds slip to join space. Continue increasing by 1 stitch until your desired width is achieved (ie it can fit over your toes comfortably.)
Continue working in HDC without the extra stitch increase until you can place the length of the slipper
over your foot stopping at the front of your ankle.

Here you will work the heel. We will now be working in ROWS

ROW 1: ch 2.(continue working the 1st hdc in base of chain) hdc in next 12 stitches, stop here.
TURN If you have made the slipper slightly wider in the beginning then remember to adjust this stitch count
to make it larger as it will cover side of foot, under heel and side,
ROW 2: ch2, HDC across to end, turn.
ROW3 +: continue working in this manner (ROW 2) until the piece can fit under your foot with the 2 ends
touching at the back of your ankle. (This will be your back seem at heel)
you will SEW up the back of the heel which is the LAST ROW by joining the first stitch to last stitch of ROW
making a U shape.

(I had 20 rows in total) from toe to back of heel

You want the slipper to be a snug fit, so when you get to the heel, put right sides together and slip stitch together.
This is how i make a basic Mary Jayne crochet Slipper Pattern, you can finish off here by completing 1 round of single crochet around the top of the slipper, ta-dah have a lovely pair of slip on slippers my niece loves these! (SEE Pic 4 BELOW)

Easy Free Crochet Slipper Boot Pattern  Free Crochet Slipper Boot PatternContinue To make the Slipper boot.
join yarn at the back heel seam. pick up and work HDC evenly in every space around. continue working in the round until you reach your desired length. mid calf for slipper boots. or knee length for slipper socks / boot socks.

ch 2, HDC around slip into 1st stitch (do not add in the extra stitches here, unless for making for a man who has wider calves) I find 1 hdc in each base of chains is enough increase to give a snug fit for a woman.

Continue working in HDC until desired length of Sock boot is achieved.
Fasten Off and weave in Ends. (See Picture 5 Below)
