You will need:
- Super chunky yarn:
- 2 x 100g (99m) in Wine
- 1 x 100g (99m) in Grey
- 1 x 100g (99m) in White
- Several metres of black DK/Aran yarn for embellishment
- Crochet hooks in sizes 4mm and 7mm

Abbreviations: (UK Terminology)
- adjustable slip knot = magic ring
- ch = chain
- ss = slip stitch
- dc = double crochet
- 2dcinc = 2dc in next stitch (increase)
- dc2tog = double crochet next 2sts together (decrease)
- tr = treble crochet
As a guideline, the size of these slippers are about a man’s size 9 and have a wide fit. For every size smaller you require, deduct 2 from the figures in red. So for a size 6, you would ch14 and the first row would be 11dc. However, if you want a size 11 then you would add 2 lots of 2sts, so the starting chain on the sole would be 24.

With black yarn and 4mm hook, make a long chain to fit completely around the slipper including the toe, on the top of the third white row. Sew into place.
Thread the white laces through the ends of rows.
The nature of the yarn and stitch automatically gives enough space for laces without having to make any eyelets. You can thread to the top or stop a few rows down and fold the top over for a cuffed effect.
