Chunky Slippers made from double crochet post stitches

Notes

  • 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.
