I do not know if anyone has attempted this pattern recently, but I think I will. Maybe not in the red, but I will definitely give this a go, even with all the issues people seemed to have in the past. Hopefully I will be able to figure it out because I really love the look of the pattern!

All of the problems from posters who have attempted these slippers could likely be due to the fact that PERHAPS we are supposed to be using two strands of Red Heart Super Saver held together. If you look at the picture, doesn't it look more chunky than just a worsted weight yarn?

It has been a long time since I have crochet and these slippers look so cozy but hate to attempt if they do not run to size. Have you made any or figured out if it is two strands? Is it maybe a thicker yarn? It does look like maybe even a chunky one. Has anyone had any luck with the pattern?

Are the fireside slippers crocheted with two strands or one strand of the Red Heart yarn.

These Crochet Slippers are so cute. The pattern is straight forward and looks very simple. These would make a great gift. They look like they could be worked up in one or two sittings. I am looking forward to making a couple of pairs for my self and for gifts. Great Pattern..

Well, it's definitely a cute pattern, but I don't think I'm going to attempt it. It sounds too confusing, and even though I would consider myself as advanced in crochet, I don't want to waste time in a pair of slippers that won't fit. It's cute though.

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

wondering the same thing

Hi there! The pattern is written in size small, and the medium and large sizes are indicated in parenthesis for each step in the instructions. So for row 1, which reads "Row 1: Ch 23 (25, 27) dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across, turn21 (23, 25) sts.", you would chain 25 for the medium size, and chain 27 for the large size. I hope that helps! -Editors of FaveCrafts

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!
