Baby Bella Slippers
Make 2
Ch 3,
Row 1: 6 hdc in 3rd ch from hook (6)
Row 2: 2 hdc in each of the next 6 sts (12)
Row 3-7: 1 hdc in each of the next 12 sts (12)
Row 8-12: Ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 8 sts, turn. Sl st in last st of row 12 to join. (8)
Turn piece inside out. Sc through each st while holding heel together to close.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Turn slipper right side out.


  1. I'm a newer crocheter and am lost on rows 8-12 when it says to slip stitch into last stitch to join. I know how to slip stitch, but I'm not sure which is the last stitch that I'm going through or which part of the slipper I'm now making. Help?

  2. im lost to. i have done it twice and i can not figure it out at rows 8-10 with the slip stich

  3. What I did was sc through all 8 sts in the 12th row and then sl st in the first st of that row. That makes a circle which becomes the heel. I then held the heel part close together and sl st through both sides of the heel, about 3 times I believe. Just fasten off and weave in the ends. Worked for me, hope that makes sense.

  4. how come in row 7 we have 12 sts then in row 8 we only have 8 sts? I dont get it...

  5. to Unknown..this happens because you aren't completing a round but turning like you would with a flat piece (like a scarf) if you were at the end.

  6. rows 8-10 you do not complete the round instead you ch 1 and turn to continue the next row this is what makes the part of the opening and at the end of row 10 you sl st both ends together to finish off the slipper

  7. That last heel part I made up my own version to add the heel so i added a few decrease st's instead and it worked out :)

  8. Row 1-7 are we turning at end of row or keep going round?
