Granny Square Slippers
|Granny Square Slippers I crocheted|
I was browsing through one of my favorite crafting websites, The Purl Bee and found a tutorial for Granny Square Slippers and just had to make them. It definitely took some trial and error to put them all together but I made it happen and the next pair should be much easier. The pattern says it will fit woman's shoe size 7- 9 1/2. I am a size 8 and feel that they are a little big. I may need to go down a hook size or just omit the single crochet that is added to each granny square before they are crocheted together. I haven't figured it out yet but for some reason the slippers in the tutorial have more rounded corners than mine do. Not that big of a deal but my pointy slippers look more elvish than they are supposed to I'm sure.

Granny Squares are so simple to make. I learned how to crochet a traditional granny square by watching crochet videos by Teresa tjw1963. I love all of her videos. She makes it so easy to learn crochet.
Each slipper consist of six granny squares. I could easily crochet several dozen granny squares in one day and then attach them all in a few hours. I think I may add some to my etsy shop. We will see.
