Having cold feet isn’t a problem when you can crochet the Orchard Slipper. Warm toes Revolution!

Orchard slipper

Inspiration & Design

These Orchard slippers were designed for the KnitCrate November 2022 Box. The box theme was Trees.

For all the crochet socks I’ve designed, I had never done a crochet slipper so when the box curators said they wanted something that wasn’t a scarf or a hat, I thought Slippers!

The Yarn for the Orchard Slipper

The idea took root (get it, trees? roots?) when they said the box contained La Brebis Puffo a Super Bulky Wool yarn that had 60 yds in 100g.

Not only was the super bulky weight yarn going to work up quick but it was also going to be extra warm. Even though Knitcrate closed it’s doors you can still find this yarn through ebay and the Ravelry stash.

In the tutorial for this slipper I used 2 strands of the Lion Brand Wool EAse Wow. I say two because the yarn is jumbo and it contains 4 strands. You could also use Lionbrand Thick and Quick to make these.

Can I make this?

Even though I always classify socks as an intermediate pattern, the simple stitches and the super bulky weight yarn make for a rather quick and simple project. Seriously, I made these in 1 day.

Even though it’s not listed in the written pattern I would recommend adding leather patches to the sole so you don’t slip and slide.

Full Description of Pattern

Cold feet aren’t a problem when you can crochet yourself or others slippers. These slippers will protect your cold feet with their bulky warmth and hardy stitching.

Since they also work up quickly they would make a great addition to your Christmas makes list or to your Christmas sales events.
