RIPPLE/PLAIN SLIPPER PATTERNS: All in one post

RIPPLE SLIPPER/SOCKS
UPDATE:oops! this pattern was in UK TERMS...NOT GOOD its such an old pattern i was doing them in uk terms back in 2009 and using 3ch for a tr definitely needs updating xx
NOW UPDATED
SLIPPER/ WRIST WARMER RIPPLE PATTERN:
Chunky or 2 strands of dk 6mm hook
Approx. 70g for a pair of socks 20 hows with a shell edge
You can make a pair on less than a day
NOW CORRECTED 
US TERMS
chunky or two strands of dk
6mm hook

ch24, sl st into circle, you need multiples of 12sts  ripple
NOTES: 4 base ch, for the first 4dc then one chain for the increase of 3dc in one st, then 4 chain for the next 4dc then
3ch for the decrease of 3 sts = 12 to make a ripple pattern. pattern repeat of 2 patterns for each row
ROW 1: [Ch2 counts as the 1st dc], 1dc in next 3ch, increase do 3dc, in next ch st, making a point, 1dc, in next 4ch, cluster the next 3sts tog, [half make a dc, in next 3sts, hold the loops on the hook, yo, pull through all of the loops to make a cluster and the side dip in ripple] repeat to complete the 1st row, sly t to complete
ROW 2- 14: change colour every row for strips or use self striping yarn,  repeat the 1st row until you've done as many rows as you need to fit your wrist or foot l did about 14 rows for the wrist warmer. 
Finish with a single crochet and a 6 chain loop at the front point to go over middle finger…This will keep the wrist warmer in place….looks quite Medieval too!!
 14 rows but a bigger hook for the slipper/sock for my size 4 shoe (6mm hook) and 16 rows and a bigger hook(7mm) again for OH slipper/socks at size 9 shoe
FINISH EDGE: Sew the one end together for socks, POINT AT CENTRE FRONT, and add a favourite shell stitch, frill or decorative stitch to the top of the sock.
Add your favourite flower decoration, this is one of my favourites on this bag, a leaf and circle flower embroidered onto project

RIPPLE SLIPPER OR WRIST WARMER




WRIST WARMERS TO GO WITH THE SOCKS IF ITS REALLY COLD


LADIES SLIPPER PATTERN


Make them as plain, or decorative as you want...stripes plain or with flowers




LADIES SLIPPER PATTERN
(USA Terms)
Chunky or Very chunky yarn and 5mm hook

Basic pattern, you may need to alter lengths depending on the yarn used and foot size
PATTERN: make 2
Ladies: size4/5
chain 4, into a circle
Row 1: 12 dc into circle, sl st to complete round (12sts)
Row 2: 2dc in each stitch, sl st to complete round (24sts)
Row 3: 1dc in each stitch plus one extra at the end of the round, sl st to complete round (25sts)
Row 4: 1dc in each st, sl st to complete round (25sts) 
Row 5- 11: Repeat row 4 (25sts)

NOTE: adjust the number for your foot, high or low front

BACK OF THE SLIPPER:
The back of the slipper is worked back and forth not in the round as are Rows 1-11
NOTE: Depending on yarn this could be less rows

Row 12-16 depending on foot size and yarn etc: 
1dc in the next 20 sts then turn and work back and forth until the correct amount of rows have been done to fit your foot snugly. 

TO FINISH:
Sew or sc the back seam together.
Add a SC stitch in a contrast yarn around the opening edge,
keeping it quite tight as after one wearing they stretch a bit.

DECORATION:

Make a flower or circle decoration, and sew it to the Slipper front.


HELPFUL TIPS:
For me 16 rows was perfect in one yarn in another I only needed 14 rows in total it just depends on the yarn you use.
And to get the right fit with one yarn I did the last row in SC and not DC.


Don't make it too loose or they won't stay on your feet as they stretch a little in the first wearing.
But it is easy to adjust the number of rows to fit your foot and make them personal.
Started to make another pair with a lower front and longer back....

so play around with the number of rows for the front and the back.


MEN'S  SLIPPER PATTERN




(USA Terms)
Chunky or Very chunky yarn and 5mm hook

Basic pattern, you may need to alter lengths depending on the yarn used and foot size

PATTERN: make 2
Gents: size 10
chain 4, into a circle
Row 1: 14 dc into circle, sl st to complete round (14 sts)
Row 2: 2dc in each stitch, sl st to complete round (28 sts)
Row 3: 1dc in each stitch, sl st to complete round (28 sts)
Row 4 - 11: repeat round 3 (28sts) 


NOTE: adjust the number for individual foot
I did 16 rows in total for my son who takes a size 8.

BACK OF THE SLIPPER:
The back of the slipper is worked back and forth not in the round as are Rows 4-11
NOTE: Depending on yarn this could be less rows

Row 12-18  depending on foot size and yarn etc: 
1dc in the next 23 sts then turn and work back and forth until the correct amount of rows have been done to fit your foot snugly. Some yarns it is 6 back of slipper rows and some it is 7.

FRONT TAB:
An additional tab front into the 5 sts left off when doing the backs at the front plus two more stitches one each end of the tab.
 So do 2 rows of 7dc, start in the last stitch of the side/back and finish in the first sts of the side/back so that both ends of the tab overlap the side/back by one stitch

TO FINISH:
Sew or sc the back seam together.
Add a SC stitch in a contrast yarn around the opening edge and tab front
keeping it quite tight at the back but not so tight over the tab.

DECORATION if you want:
Make a circle decoration, and sew it to the Slipper front.


HELPFUL TIPS:
The number of rows in the total  length can depend on the yarn you use.
And to get the right fit with one yarn I did the last row in SC and not DC for some yarns


Don't make it too loose or they won't stay on your feet as they stretch a little in the first wearing.
But it is easy to adjust the number of rows to fit your foot and make them personal.
