Notes

  • Numbers at the end of each round in parentheses ( ) = total number of stitches for that round.
  • Bolded text between brackets [ ... ] means pattern repeat.
  • If you are new to reading crochet patterns, you might find these tips helpful.
  • You can adjust the sizing of these slippers by changing your hook size for the triangles. If you are making a child's size, you may decrease the number of rounds in the granny triangles. I made a pair of slippers for my 6 year-old with only 3-round granny triangles.

  • If you feel the holes in your Granny Triangles are too big, it would be best to go down a hook size so your toes are fully covered.

  • For the length of the slippers, please refer to the provided downloadable for sizing.

    Granny Slippers Crochet Pattern Instructions

    The instructions for these slippers are divided into 4 parts:

    Part I: Front (Triangles over toes)

    Part II: Stitching the granny triangles together

    Part III: Back (sc over body / heel)

    Part IV: Border

    You will be repeating these instructions for the second slipper.


    Instructions For Classic Crochet Granny Triangle (Multi Color )

    Part I: Front (Triangles over Toes) - Crochet 4 Triangles

    There are several ways to crochet a classic Granny Triangle, but I find this one the easiest and most straight forward. Here we go:

    Foundation:

    • Start off with color A, tie a slip knot, then Ch 4. You could also try the Magic Circle (mc) for a tight & closed center.
    • Join to first ch stitch with a slip stitch to form a circle.
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle-4

    Magic Circle

    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle-3

    Ch 4 & sl st

    Round 1

    • Continuing with color A, ch 2 (counts as first double crochet)
    • 2 dc into center of circle, ch 2, [3 dc into center of circle, ch 2] repeat brackets 1 more time
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle


    • Join with sl st to top of first ch 2 at beginning of this round.
    • Leave a 4" tail, cut your yarn and fasten off.
    • If you began with a mc, pull the tail to close the circle tight.

    You should have 3 clusters of 3 dc at this point and 3 corners (the ch 2 after each cluster creates a corner).

    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle

    Round 2:

    • Join color B with a sl st (in the gap/corner space to the right of the tail from Round 1)
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle


    • ch 2 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into same corner space, ch 2,  3 dc into same corner space, ch 1 (This is a corner cluster)
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle


    • [Skip to next corner space (big gap) and work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1].


    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle
    • Repeat brackets 1 more time

    • Join with sl st to top of beginning ch 2 of this round.
    • Leave a 4" tail, cut your yarn and fasten off.
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle

    You should have 2 clusters in each of the 3 corners now.  Each cluster is 3 dc sts. That means a total of 18 dc sts in this round. Each corner of the triangle has 2 clusters separated by a ch 2.

    Round 3:

    • Join color C with a sl st , ch 2, 2 dc into same space, ch 1,
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle


    • Skip to next corner space [in corner space work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1

    • Skip to next ch 1 space and work 3 dc, ch 1]

    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle


    • Leave a 4" tail, cut your yarn and fasten off.

    You should now have 2 clusters in each of the 3 corners and 1 separate cluster on each side.

    • Leave a 4" tail, cut your yarn and fasten off.
    How-To-Crochet-Granny-Triangle

    Repeat this pattern 3 more times till you have 4 Granny Triangles in total.


    Part II: Stitch Granny Triangles Together

    • Hold 2 Granny Triangles back to back and line up your stitches.
    Granny slippers crochet pattern
    • Cut about 50 cm (20") length of same color yarn you used for your last round of your Granny Triangle.
    How to crochet granny slippers 3
    • Thread your yarn in a tapestry needle.
    • Attach the other end of your yarn to the inside corner of one of your Granny Triangles with a knot.

    • Now begin to attach the 2 Granny Triangles together by making an "S" shape [Front to back, then back to front in the middle of the "v"s] along 2 sides of your Granny Triangles. Try to work as neatly as you can and don't miss any stitches.
    Crochet Granny Triangle Slippers Pattern
    • Once you're done with stitching together your 2 sides, simply pull out your tapestry needle and leave the yarn tail hanging for now.
    • Place 2 stitch markers in the top middle of these 2 clusters (indicated in photo). [In the center of the second ch 2 cluster on the right half of the Granny Triangle, and same in the left half of the second Granny Triangle].

    Part III: Body / Heel

    Now grab your crochet hook again and attach the same color yarn (as your final round of Granny Triangles) to where you inserted your left stitch marker (while project is facing you). Use a slip stitch to attach.

    Start working sc stitches all around the back end of your Granny Triangles till you reach your 2nd stitch marker, ch 1 & turn (30 sts)

    Rows 2 - 18: sc into each st along, ch 1 & turn (30)

    Notes: 

    • The number of rows will depend on the slipper size you're making. Check for sizing either by trying them on, or by referring to the Slipper Sizing Template.
    •  For your last row, you will not ch 2 & turn. After your 30th sc, leave a 10" tail, cut your yarn & fasten off.

    Remember that the slipper might stretch a bit so rather not make them too big.

    • Turn your Granny Triangles inside out and fold your slipper base back to back.

    • Hold the 2 edges of the heel together (back to back) and using your Tapestry needle, start stitching the 2 sides together neatly using the whip stitch.

    Here is a video tutorial showing you how to Whip Stitch.

    • Turn your slipper the right side out and check for fitting.

    If your slipper feels too tight, then rip out your joining seam and add a row or 2 more until you reach the length you need.

    If your slipper feels too large, then it's also best to rip out your joining seam and frog a row or two.

    Haven't heard of "Frogging" yet? Check out these crochet slang terms 🙂

    Part IV: Border

    • Starting at the top of your heel (where you seemed the edges together), attach the same color yarn again with a slip stitch.
    How to crochet granny Slippers

    Round 1: sc all the way around into the sides of the rows. Put 1 sc into the side of each row and along the front top part of your slipper as well. This creates a neat base for your border.

    Round 2: (ch 4, sk a st, sl st into next st). Repeat brackets around till you reach the beginning sl st. I had (22) arches around the top of my slipper. Your number may be different depending on what size slipper you're making,

    Note: If you crochet your chains loosely, you can also only ch 3 instead of ch 4 so your arches are not too big.

    • Grab a contrasting color of yarn, one that you've used in your Granny Triangle.
    • Work a long row of chain stitches till you reach about 50 cm (20") in length. Let's call this your ribbon.
    • Starting from the middle of the open front part of your slipper, insert your ribbon into one of the arches (from the outside inwards).
    crochet granny slippers free pattern
    • Continue to alternate with inserting your ribbon through the arches once from the front and once from the back until you reach the last arch on the front of your slipper.

    Adjust the length of your ribbon so that both sides are of equal length.
