You will need:

I used 2 balls of cotton yarn (100 g / 170 m / 186 yds)
You can use any yarn and hook you have or love.
Brand: Rico
Rico Creative Cotton Aran 
Ball Weight: 50g (1.8oz)

Machine wash at 30º | do not bleach | cool iron | may be dry cleaned | do not tumble dry
Hook Size 4 mm (US 6)

Terminology:
st – stitch
CH – chain stitch
SC – single crochet

Size: Adults – 24 cm / 9.4 inches
Size of shoes:
EUR & CN = 38-40
US = 6.5 – 7.5
UK = 4.5 – 5.5

Instructions:

Leave about 40cm / 16 in of yarn to sew the heel.
Make 40 chains (for size: 24 cm / 9.4 inches).
For longer or shorter slippers, do a few chains more or less.

Row 1: skip the first chain and make 1 SC across. Total 39 SC.

Rows 2 – 30: CH; make SC in the back loops to the end row; Total 39 SC.
If you need a different size, feel free to either add or subtract from the rows number.
There must be an even number of rows.
This pattern is stretchy enough and very comfortable.
You’re going to make rows until slippers wide enough to wrap around your foot.

Measure 19 stitches and put the stitch marker.
Rows 31 – 39: make SC entire row (without chains on the beginning and the end row); Total 19 SC.
I made 9 rows. If you need, feel free to either add or subtract from the rows number. There must be an odd number of rows.

Then, close the two sides together. Sew with yarn and sewing needle.
Now we are going to make the top of the foot.
We’ll make two rows of single crochet stitches. In the second row, we’ll reduce the number of stitches (SC2tog). Now we’ll sew the top with yarn and a sewing needle.

HEEL

Join a heel with a sewing needle and yarn.
