What’s also great about the Friday Slippers is that they are unisex, so you can whip up slippers for the whole family!

And they’re customizable! You can make them striped or solid, use variegated yarn, and you can also choose to leave off the cuff for a fun house shoe.

This pattern in Child Sizes 9/10 through 4/5 coming Wednesday!

Friday Slippers for adults


  • Beginning chains do not count as stitches.
  • Do not turn unless otherwise indicated.
  • Instructions are written for smallest size with larger sizes in parentheses.
  • Final stitch count for smallest size is in parentheses and larger sizes are in brackets.
  • This pattern is written for the stripes version. Skip color changes for a solid pair. 
  • I was able to get a woman’s size small in solid and a small in stripes from one 7oz/247yd ball of yarn (plus a small amount of accent color).

Special Stitches

Extended Half Double Crochet (ehdc) –  YO, insert hook in stitch indicated, YO, draw up a loop, YO, draw through one loop on hook, YO, draw through all loops on hook.

Third Loop Only (TLO) – The loop on the backside of a half double crochet that runs parallel to the front & back loops. Aka Camel Stitch.

  1. You must have read my mind. My grandsons slippers were eaten by the dog (Labrador, I don’t need to say more) and I thought I would whip him up some slippers. Thank you so much.
