Crochet Converse Slippers

This is a very easy project which can be accomplished even by a beginning crocheter

These are just great for Christmas morning and maybe Valentines Day.  I love Red, so for me it is a all year round Converse Trainer.

To make this in different sizes, just use a different size of hook and/or thicker yarn.

As for Red and White, make them any colour you want.

My Crochet Converse Slippers – English Instructions

 This is an english translation of the instructions for my Crochet Converse Sneaker Slippers.

Crochet Sneaker Slippers in the spirit of Converse, by Mun Tekemä

The slippers fit a foot size EU ca 43-47 (US adult 9-13).

A 3 mm crochet hook was used.

The yarn that was originally used (Novita 7 Veljestä, a brand from Finland) is listed as worsted, but as it at most could be described as light worsted I would recommend that you use a light worsted or DK weight if you substitute (translaters remarks).

Row 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 1st ch, join first and last dc with sl st.

Row 2: Start every row with ch 3 = 1 dc. 2 dc in every st. Close with a sl st.

Row 3: *Dc in next st, 2 dc in the following st* repeat *-,-* until end of row.

Row 4: Dc in every st, no increases.

Change the color of your yarn.

Rows 5-8: Continue in dc.

The slipper is divided into the front flap and the rest of the slipper.

Row 10-12: Start and finish the row by increasing 1 st (= +2 sts per row).

Row 13: Start the row by increasing 1 dc in the first st, then increase 1 dc in every 8th st and increase 1 dc in the last st.

Row 14: No increases.

Row 15-17: Start and finish the row by increasing 1 st (= +2 sts per row).

Row 18: As row 13, but increase in every 9th st.

Row 19: No increases.

Rows 20-21: Increases at the beginning and end of the row, if necessary.

Crochet until 22-25 rows. On the last rows no increases were made. Leave a long end to seam the back seam.

Row 3: Sc the last row. 2 sc in every 3rd st, close with a sl st. Leave a long end to seam the label onto the sneaker. Finish the label by sewing on a star and a dotted line. Or instead of a star, sew on the initials of the recipient of the slippers.

Finish the sneakers by threading a wide thread meant for sneakers into every 3rd sc.
