Crochet cotton slippers

I recently finished a new design that I find very useful. Its a slipper and its not so unique, but I used two strands of cotton thread. I used to think that I can only make slippers from WW yarn. Most of the patterns I found used big hooks and thicker yarns and most were done in scs. I tried making one from two strands thread, and it starts with dc rounds, so its fairly easy. I wish I did it a long time ago. I really love wearing it!

Take a look at my happy feet :)



I got inspired to come up with the slippers design, when Daisy asked me if I could make one. She was just beginning to take up Pilates classes and realized she needed some comfy (and cute) slippers. It took me some time, but I think she was so pleased with the outcome.



Here, she is modeling her slippers ;)
