I took some liberties and changed this pattern a little. 1. start with a magic ring instead of chain loop-easier to close the toe and eye parts. 2. on the rows that create the opening of the shoe, chain 2 makes the opening way too tight, I chain 3 like a normal start for any double crocheted item, and it works fine. 3. to finish the heel, for the last row tie off, but leave a long tail of yarn to close up the heel. Do a single crochet join down the back of the slipper on the inside (flip the heel over so that you're working on the outside). Once you get to the bottom, instead of leaving it pointy, draw up the point on the inside about halfway up the back of the slipper and tack into place. Finish by sewing the triangle that is formed to the back of the slipper, then flip the shoe over and sew the seam closed at the bottom of the heel. 4. I don't do the single crochet run around the top of the opening nor do I form a loop at the heel. These don't really need it, and if you did your rows neatly and evenly, you won't need them either. You might want to put some fun fur trim around the top edge of the shoe, though, and that would be the easiest way to achieve that. I used eyelash yarn to make fuzzy eyelashes on my monsters. SUPER CUTE! I've made five pair, in various sizes. The smallest size listed will fit a 3 ir 4 year old child, a little big for a toddler. Next size up would be youth/small women's, the next size fits between a 7 and 8 women's, and the largest size would fit up to a man's size 10 or 11.

What great suggestions! Thanks so much for sharing! Please feel free to share a photo of your project on this page by clicking the link under the little camera icon. We'd love to see what your Crazy Monster Eyes Slippers look like!

I too find the pattern to be missing something--possibly decrease. Even the toddler size turns out enormous. And the instructions say they will fit snug,. Please reprint corrections. Thanks

Did you use a 5 mm hook? Sounds like maybe you used an 8 mm instead of a size 8. Check your gauge before you start to make sure you get 9 rounds of 16 double crochet to measure 4".

Also make sure you're using the yarn suggested here. Sometimes if you use a different yarn, your gauge will be different. I'd also suggest checking your gauge and making sure your hook size and yarn weight is as mentioned in the materials list. Hope that helps!

I made these for my brother's girlfriend's daughter..she is 5. I made them in purple with pink eyes. Her Mom told me that these are the only "shoes" this child keeps track of! She comes home and puts her "purple eyes" on. I am so happy that she liked them and now I am "Aunty" to this child as well!

Aww! Thank you so much for sharing this sweet story! If you have a photo of them, we'd love to see it! You can upload it to this page by clicking the link under the little camera icon...that way we'll all be able to see your version of the Crazy Monster Eyes Slippers!

Dose anyone know how to get in tuch with the person how posted the crazy monster slipper so i can find out if there is a youtube video of step by step how to make them? email me wnd_contreras@yahoo.com thanks Wanda

Hi there all well i am having a little truble with understanding the direction to these monster slippers, is there a video out there some where that is could watch. give me a shout if so thanks

I'm just a novice at crocheting but ended up managing them OK I ended up making 3 because the first one was a bit wonky. If you have a problem keep trying they work out fine in the end

Thanks for the advice! We'll see if we can update this pattern soon and make the directions a little easier to understand.

I need to make these for my granddaughter. I'm going to make the eyes smaller & put 2 on each slipper to look like frogs, since she loves frogs.

dont know what i am doing wrong. it seems like part of the pattern is missing. mine looks like a dolls bonnet?????? or if i turn it upside down it looks like the heel of a slipper but with no foot??? anyone got any ideas? i really want to make these

Mine too. Looks nothing like the photo and quite a bit larger than I expected. My grandkids will be disappointed.

thank you i fell the same way, man am i haveing a hard time with it to do you know if there is a video out there some where we would see what we are doing rong? if you know of one email me wnd_contreras@yahoo.com

How fun is that! Awesome slippers!!

Another pattern with "cookies" added to it when it is downloaded. Stop doing this!!!

I'M going to give these a shot for my grandkids. they will get a kick out of the big eyes.

I made the eye slippers. I have had more grown ups want a pair. It looks like everyone is getting a pair for Christmas. lol

Thanks JackieM for your pattern, I will give it a try - Di

I have made slippers (without the eyes) similar to these for years. However, my pattern is a bit different. I crochet in single stitches, with double thread, until the actual foot starts getting wider. Usually about 4 inches. Then I start to open the slipper up by ending the previous row, turning the slipper, chain 1 and then crochet across the body of the slipper until I am back to where I stopped the previous row, chain 1 and go back to the body of the slipper. When the body of the slipper is as long as I need it, I then create a heel by dividing the amount of the last row of stitches I have done by 2. I then crochet down the body of the slipper by that amount, turn, chain 1 and crochet back to the top of the slipper. I create 4 of these rows, thereby creating a heel, crochet it closed, a slipper made. You can then create a ruffle on the top of slipper for a gal, or, if you want, you can increase stitches in the body of the slipper to turn it into a bootie that will come up the ankle a bit for extra warmth. These are fun, fast booties to make and very warm, and can be made completely without having to stop for any reason.
