Now maybe I'm just having a senior blonde moment...but can somebody point me in the right direction as to where I can find the adult sizes patterns as it says to do under 'parentheses' on this pattern. Thanks xxx

this is a confusing pattern also doesent fit a small foot in the large size all i have is peices that have no way to fit toggethter not for beginners

I have a size 8 foot and I crocheted a large slipper. What I dont understand is if I layer the soles and sew them on the side of the slipper the slipper wont fit. So this part is confuseing to me. Am I overlapping them just a little and the seam is on the bottom of the foot or am I sewing right on the bottom of each side of the foot? So it is totally overlapped? It would have been so much easier if there was a picture showing how this is done.

I finished the slipper the way that I thought it was assembled and it came out like the picture. Really nice. I like this slipper a lot. The only thing is the sizes gotta be off because I went over the pattern again and again to see maybe if I counted wrong and I didnt the large size I can get on my foot but I have to stretch the hell out of it. But it fits my 8 year old niece perfect. So there definetly needs more stitches for a bigger size. Thank you for this pattern.

good luck trying to get them to fit ! Not a very easy pattern for me that is for sure!

Those look fantastic.....but what size foot is considered small medium and large?

@aje127 small is usually 4-6 adult, medium is 7-8 adult, large is 8-10.

can you make a video? even looking up the crochet terms used i still don't understand fully what you mean...

@vmariposa17 great question! You can also contact Red Heart Yarn with this request. I'm sure they would be happy to help!

I am unsure how to "sew heal seam" When I wrap sides to make the sole there is a large hole left in rear of slipper. It does not seem to come together. Please explain better. Thanks!

@ges9023 When you're assembling the slipper, Sew heal seem means to close up that hole in the back of the slipper. You're attaching the bottom to the sides, then forming the toe, then sewing the back of the slipper to create the heal. Hope that helps!
