These slippers are light for the spring/summer and have a hard sole so that you get a little extra protection walking around – the pattern is given with the slipper sized to my foot (UK size 6-7) but you can make it to fit your foot by following the instructions and keeping a track of how its fitting while your crocheting it.
First of all you need an old pair of shoes you dont mind destorying. Remove the material of the shoe from the sole.

Round 1 -3 dc in each around slip stitch to starting chain ch2
Round4 – 17 2dc together dc in each dc around slip stitch to starting chain ch2
You should now have a tube that goes from your ankle to your toes, closet the end and fasten off
Now we are going to finish the bottom of the slipper
Attach wool on one side of
the sole and dc in the next 10 dc ch2 turn
Row 1 – 7 dc in each dc across the sole (10dc) so the sole of the shoe should be covered now. Fasten off
Attach wool to one side of the ankle and dc around the edges of the sole (we are now building up the heel of the slipper stop at the other ankle edge ch2 turn
Dc in back loops only around the opposite side ch2 turn
Dc in each chain around to other edge ch2 turn
Dc in each chain around but this time do not turn keep going all the way around the front of the slipper also ( so a full circle) we are now making the ankle. Keep dc in round until the ankle is the desired length( do no join or ch2)
