When I was growing up, my great grandmother always made (and wore) crochet slippers made from post stitches. They held up better than other crocheted versions, plus they are warmer in our frigid Winters (or AC cooled homes in the Summer).


I’ve been wanting to design a cute pair of post stitch slippers for years, but never got around to it. I’m so glad the idea popped back into my head when I decided on making this Watermelon pair.

Using mostly Front Post and Back Post Double Crochet stitches, this pair of slippers is sure to keep your feet cozy!

  • Beginning chains do not count as stitches
  • Chain 1 is used purposely to keep the FPdcs at the appropriate height. Changing the beginning chain amount may result in taller stitches and a longer finished project.
  • Slippers are worked from the toe up
  • Tutorial photos are on the last page
  • You can get a Strawberry look by making the entire toe and heel pink (or Red) and the ankle solid green. Add the seeds as instructed using white yarn.
