As a follow-up to my Simple Toddler Slippers, I wanted to tackle a child sized pair. These are scaled up to fit a child size 10 – 2 (US measurements). Keep in mind that they will stretch to fit!
The finished project is approximately 8 inches from heel to toe. Playing with the hook size will give you a little more wiggle room if you need them larger.

How adorable .. Do you have a pattern in older children’s sizes .. I have a 17 & a 15 yr old granddaughter who are almost if not into women’s sizes . SO maybe I will need it in a woman’s size ? Thank you !
OMGoodness! Thanks to you I finally have a crochet pattern for both of my kids!!! There’s all these baby shoe patterns, but hardly anything for toddlers & bigger kids. The ones I have found I didn’t like because they are just worked in circles from toe to back. Your patterns are the only ones I found that I liked because you start with the sole & work your way up. I just wanted to thank you for this!!!! You’ve made my life a lot easier & thanks to you my bigger kids get all kinds of nice slippers in all the colors they like now!!!!
[…] I used Hayfield Bonus Chunky chocolate and 5mm hook. The pattern is adapted from Hodge Podge Crochet site. […]
is this the whole pattern ?
