How to make Knit Crochet Bootie Slippers for Hot Russian 2 year old


this is going to be a child-size slipper
the slipper is approximately five and a half inches from heel to toe and
approximately three inches across we will be using a couple of yarn markers
for this project and that can just be any scrap of yarn it doesn’t have to be
anything store-bought just any type of scrap that you have laying around the
house it can be a rubber band a paperclip old tails cut from yarn
they’re perfect for marking Y I’m using red heart four ply worsted weight yarn
an H crochet hook I’m going to do four of the foundation single crochet there’s
one to three for round one
we’ll be a chain one three single crochet in this end stitch one single
crochet in each of the next two stitches three single crochet in the next end
stitch now down the opposite side we will do one single crochet in each of
the next two stitches and then join with the beginning single crochet and you can
see right here I like to go through so there’s two loops on top of my hook and
then wrap the yarn over and pull through now for round two we chain one two
single crochet in the first stitch and we’re increasing one single crochet in
the next stitch two single crochet in the last stitch which is an increase one
single crochet in each of the next two stitches now we’re doing an increase
again of two single crochet from the next stitch one single crochet two
single crochet in the next stitch for an increase one single crochet in each of
the next two stitches and we have fourteen single crochet on round two and
now we join now I’m around three we chain one two
single crochet in the same stitch one single crochet in each of the next three
stitches two single crochet in the next stitch one single crochet in each of the
next two stitches two single crochet in the next stitch one single crochet in
each of the next three stitches two single crochet in the next stitch one
single crochet in each of the next two stitches and that will give us 18 single
crochet on round three now we won’t be joining at the end of round three we’re
going to continue on working in a continual round so we’ll get our first
yarn marker here and we just want to mark this first stitch so we have an
idea for our beginning stitches we’ll be taking it out later and moving it now
we’ll just do one single crochet in each of the next 18 stitches there’s four five six seven eight nine 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 and so we
have 18 single crochet on round for the next four rounds rounds five through
eight will be one single crochet in each of the next 18 and we’ll end right here
at the beginning with four more rounds so continue on for four more rounds
eighteen single crochet now I’ve completed round eight and in this
section right here in these rounds you can add additional rounds if you need to
make it longer or less rounds if you need to make it shorter
now this next section round nine is going to be the top part of the slipper
I’m going to attach my first yarn marker in the next stitch and I’m going to
count over nine stitches one two three four five six seven eight nine and I’m
going to attach another yarn marker we will be increasing five stitches across
the top part of the foot in these nine stitches right here every other stitch
will be an increase of two single crochet in each stitch which will give
us 23 single crochet on round nine so this first one is our increase to single
crochet in the same stitch one single crochet two single crochet in the same
stitch one single crochet two single crochet in the same stitch one single
crochet two single crochet in the same stitch one single crochet two single
crochet in the last stitch now we continue on around on what will be the
bottom part of the slipper in nine more single crochet one single crochet in
each stitch now rounds 10 through 14 will be one
single crochet in each stitch for a total of 23 stitches and this is another
part of the slipper where you can make it longer or shorter now I’ve completed round 14 round 15 I’m
going to single crochet in two stitches to get up here to the center and now I’m
going to be changing the yarn markers and I’ll mark this first stitch here we
will be leaving the top eight stitches open and working in rows from now on
now I’ve counted over eight stitches here and marking the eighth stitch over
and now with Row 15 we chain one one single crochet in each of the next 15
stitches now rows 16 through 20 will be a chain
one and one single crochet in each of the next 15 single crochet this is the
third place where you can make the slipper longer or shorter adjusting the
size and this is the section that I’m working on right now
now row 20 and 21 are both going to be decreases to shape the heel and this is
the heel part right here and we’ll be doing a little bit of decreasing now row
21 we chain 1 1 single crochet in each of the next 4 now we’re going to be
making 4 single crochet decreases each stitch will be worked over two stitches
so we’ll be working over eight all together and taking the eight and
reducing them down to 4 so what I do with my first single crochet decrease is
put my hook through the stitch like this pull the yarn through leave the two
loops on the hook put it through the next stitch like that wrap the yarn over
the hook pull it through there are three loops on the hook wrap the yarn over and
pull through all three loops and that is the first single crochet decrease and
you do the same thing with the next one you put the hook through the first
stitch pull the yarn through put it through the next stitch pull the yarn
through I have three loops on my hook wrap the yarn over the hook pull it
through and that completes the second single crochet decrease put the hook
through the next stitch pull the yarn through
put the hook through the next stitch after that pull the yarn through wrap
the yarn over the hook pull through all three loops on the hook now we have one
more to do you and we’ve completed all four single
crochet decreases and you can see how it’s shaping the heel right here now one
single crochet in each of the next three stitches and that completes row 21 now we chain
one and turn one single crochet in each of the next two stitches this time we’ll
be doing three single crochet decreases now the first and we’ll do them the same
way put the hook through the next stitch pull the yarn through put the hook
through the stitch after pull it through we have three loops on the hook wrap the
yarn over and pull through all three loops on the hook and we’ll do the next
stitch the same way put the hook into the stitch after that one now we have
one more to complete now we’ve completed our last single
crochet decrease now do one single crochet in each of the next three and now we want to slip stitch this
opening shut and just kind of turn it inside out a little bit like this and we’re just slip stitching the two
edges together it’ll take about four slip stitches you
can sew it if you prefer sewing it now we can go ahead and sew in the tail we can take the yarn markers out no now
we’ll turn the store inside out and saw the tail in at the beginning and cut the yarn now trying to slip a
right side out now we’ve completed the slipper now we are going to be making
the cup I’ll join the yarn in the back of the heel chain one and we want to
evenly stitch 23 single crochet around the cuff now if you find that you have
extra stitches that’s alright what you can do is a little single
crochet decrease like we did at the heel here and you can join them together so
there’s not any extra gaps or holes but that’s a way that you can fill in if you
have extra stitches which may happen it may not happen sometimes it’s all in how
you crochet and put it together okay now I have my 23 and I did about I
did three joint single crochet and now we won’t join here at the end we’ll just
go ahead and do a single crochet in each single crochet around for seven more
rounds now back around here and I just keep on
going because we’re working in a continual round I have six more rounds
to go now I’ve completed the eight rounds for the cuff and since we’re
working with the continual round I want to even it out so we’ll skip this single
crochet and do a slip stitch in the next one you can see how that evens it out and cut the yarn then we’ll just sew in
the tail leave it between the stitches this is the child’s slipper complete
