      • no sorry… they are made to fit the measurements so you’ll need to adjust number of stitches & rows to make them bigger and fit your measurements or try using a larger hook size depending on how much bigger you need them… I have found that you can use up to an 8 mm hook with 8 ply yarn and still have a close crochet… also you could probably use an 8 mm hook and 10 ply which would make them bigger even using the same number of stitches in the pattern but maybe a few more rows between snout & toes and heel & toes sections depending on length of foot…
        Hope this helps πŸ˜€

    • you should be able to highlight it, then right click on it anywhere and a box should come up with either copy or print… if print doesn’t work for you I suggest you copy and past it into “Word” then print it from there… hope this helps πŸ˜€

    • no sorry but if you’re cluey you should be able to adjust my pattern by adding rows to the top, sole and back pieces… you’ll also need to add width… all according to the size of the foot you’re making them for… as you can see at the end of my pattern I made my slippers specifically to fit my Grandsons foot using his measurements.

  2. I’m trying these now, and wondered if you could add the # of stitches per inch, or cm, you got as I had trouble matching the yarn. It might make it easier for those increasing too. You have come up with a cute idea here! Thank you

    • I don’t have the socks anymore to measure… I adjusted the stitches to match the measurements… if you use the same hook and ply yarn you should get the same size… sorry if this is not very helpful

      • Thanks anyway. I couldn’t find the right yarn but using what appears to be heavier and the same directions they came out bigger. Good luck has helped me more than anything, lol! Such a cute idea

  3. I need help!!! I have crocheted only blankets in the past – so I need help following these instructions!!! I am stuck at SNOUT, LEG FRONT & TOP OF FOOT

    Row !: After dc across, do I chain 3 and then turn?? (Because it is dc?)
    Row 2: Chain 3 ? and turn?
    Row 3: Decrease 1 dc at beginning of row and 1 dc at end, there should be 10 dc left …?
    Row 5 – 8 dc left
    Row 7 – 6 dc
    Row 9 – 4 dc
    Row 11 – 2 dc
    Row 12 – 1 dc That works. But how many do I chain at the end of each row??

    Many thanks – since my grandchildren really want these slippers!!

    • Hi, I’m Australian and follow UK patterns terms so if you are from the good old USA the “dc” in the pattern would be your “sc” so you’d ch 1 at the end then turn

      • Thanks for your quick response …. I had absolutely NO clue that Australian / UK patterns were different!! (Where have I been?) I will give it a go again soon since the slippers are so cute. Thanks for keeping in touch with your posting to help people like me!!

        ***** Hello Again!! Thanks so much for your help!! I had to write the pattern out (as above) because I kept getting confused. It’s turning out great!!
        I am now finished Row 11 with 2 dc left – and a loop on the hook.
        I believe it is time to do Row 2 again – but how do I end up with 1 dc???

      • that’s correct now…
        Row 12: dc2tog and you should have 1 dc & loop on the hook, ch, turn
        Row 13: dc in that dc, ch, turn
        Row 14: 2dc in same dc, ch, turn
        continue increasing as per pattern

      • Thank you so very much for your patience!! My inexperience is certainly showing …. Otherwise, I would be able to figure out what to do myself from looking at the pictures. I am ‘good to go’ once more. Actually, I am from Manitoba, Canada.

  4. My son will love these. He is 17 with big feet. He is going away to Namibia with the school. I will measure his feet before he goes and make them for him while he is gone. Nice surprise for when he comes back.
