Abbreviations:Ch. - ChainSt. – StitchSl. St. – Slip StitchSc. – Single Crochet
fpdc- front post double crochet
{There is a tutorial on how to make the fpdc here: http://www.crochetcabana.com/stitches/stitches-fpdc-bpdc.htm }

Here is a Youtube video I made explaining how the FPDC is done:


Materials needed2 skeins Red heart super saver yarn ( hold 2 strands together throughout)H hook to make average woman’s size slipper, I hook to make men’sStitch marker (use in rounds 1 – 5 to mark the starting stitch of each round)

I made this to fit a woman’s size 8 foot; I have marked in red the places where you can adjust this to fit your individual foot size.


Ch 2
1. In 2nd Ch from hook work 6 sc (place stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each of the next 5 rows) do not join (6 sc)

2. 2 sc in each stitch around (do not join) (12 sc)

3. 2sc in first stitch, 1 in the next repeat pattern around (do not join) (18 sc)

4. 2sc in first stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 stitches, repeat around (do not join) (24 sc)

5. 2sc in first stitch, 1 sc in each of the next 3 stitches, repeat around (do not join) (30 sc)

6. 1 sc in each+ stitch around join with slip stitch to the first sc of the row. Ch 1

7. Ch 1 Sc in 1st stitch, *work 1 fpdc around the next stitch in the row UNDER the current row, skip the stitch directly behind the Fpdc you just made, sc in the next stitch, Repeat from * around ending with a fpdc. Join with Sl. St. Ch1

(in all following FPDC rounds work the FPDC around the FPDC in the row below)

8 – 19: repeat rounds 6 and 7 (6 times) end round 13 by joining with a Sl. St. and then Sl. St. in the next 4 stitches. Ch 1, turn.

(Try the slipper on at this point to determine if you need to add more repeats, You’ll want it to hit around the arch of your foot at this point)

20. Sc in each of the next 21 stitches, Ch 1 and turn, leaving the remaining stitches unworked.

21. Sc in the 1st stitch, * fpdc around the next stitch in the row UNDER the current row, skip the stitch directly behind the Fpdc you just made, sc in the next stitch, Repeat from * around ending with a sc. Ch1 and turn

22. - 33. Repeat rows 20 and 21 (6 times) {Increase or decrease the number of repeats as needed to insure a snug fit on the heel} ch 1 and turn

34. Work sc in each of the next 9 stitches; work a sc decrease over the next 2 stitches. Ch 1 and turn.

Back seam

Back seam:With Right sides together, slip stitch together the unworked stitches to the Sc’s you just made on Row 34, Ch 1.

Edging Rows
Edging rows:

(
To adjust the fit across the top of the foot work a SC decrease in each to the “corners “ on the top part of the foot)

  • Work 1 row of Sc evenly around the foot opening, decreasing in the corners, join round with a slip stitch. Ch 1
  • Work one row of sc evenly around the foot opening, without decreasing in the corners, join with a slip stitch. Ch 1
3-4. Repeat rows 1 and 2. Fasten off and weave in ends.



You can make a long chain( 75 chains will work just fine) to weave into the sc edging rows to make a bow tie, a long piece of pretty ribbon would work as well.

Just lovely, I love the fpdc stitch. I made another pair but not as thick as these, so you can bet I will have this on my WIM

Very, very nice! I usually make slippers with a double strand of yarn for warmth and these just fit the bill! Thank you very much!
