Barefoot in the Grass Slipper Socks Crochet Pattern

Barefoot in the Grass Slipper Socks Crochet Pattern

Many years ago I had a dream that I would get a tattoo. It was on the side of my foot, and it pictured blades of grass and daisies so that it looked like I was standing barefoot in the grass.

I woke up and was so impressed with my sleeping brain, because seriously, running barefoot through the grass is one of the best feelings there is.

The image always stuck with me, and although I never got the tattoo, I finally found a way to make that dream come true with the Barefoot in the Grass Slipper Socks… featuring a bunch of daisies.

Barefoot in the Grass Slipper Socks Free Crochet Pattern - the Slippin' Stitch #crochet #patternMaterials:

Yarns:
Slipper: Worsted/Aran, dark and light green
Daisies: Sport/Light DK, yellow and white
Crochet Hooks:
Slipper: 5mm (metric) / size H (US) / size 6 (UK / Canada)
Daisies: 3mm (metric) / closest US size is C / size 11 (UK / Canada)

Yarn Needle to weave in the ends
Stitch Marker

Notes:

  • I made this pattern to fit my feet. I’m a size 39 (EU) / 8.5 (US), the slippers are ca. 29cm/11.5″ long and 10cm/4″ wide. They have a bit of stretch, so they should fit 1-2 sizes bigger too. You can adapt them to your length by making more or fewer rounds were mentioned in the pattern below.
  • To make the slippers nice and cosy, the pattern uses the Up and Down Stitch. So rather than double crocheting all the way around, you alternate double and single crochets (dc, sc, dc, sc, and so forth). In the next round, you want to make a sc in the top of each dc from the previous round and sc in the top of each :

The Up and Down Crochet Stitch

Barefoot in the Grass Slipper Socks Crochet Pattern

The Slipper:

  1. Make 8 double crochets into a magic circle (8). Join with a slip stitch.
  2. Chain 2, make 1 double crochet and 1 single crochet in each stitch (16).
    From here on you will be working in rounds, so always mark the first stitch in your round with a stitch marker so you can keep track.
  3. *1 single crochet, 1 double crochet, followed by 1 single crochet and 1 double crochet in the same stitch* all the way around. You should now have 21 stitches.
  4. Now that you’ve done all the necessary increasing, you’ll just keep doing the Up and Down stitch in rounds, making sure to make a SC in the top of every DC, and a DC in the top of every SC. Since you began the last round with a single crochet, you want to start with a double crochet. And off you go.
  5. Do 20 rounds of the Up and Down Stitch.
    If you’re making the slippers for yourself, you can check if they nicely fit you and that your sock goes all the way to your ankles. Add or subtract rows as necessary.
  6. Start your next round, but stop after 16 stitches. Chain 1 and turn.
  7. Go back 16 stitches, chain 1 and turn.
  8. Repeat 4 times to make 6 rows in total.
  9. Turn your slipper inside out. Single crochet the two sides of the heal together with a row of 8 single crochets. Fasten off.
  10. Turn it back the right side, and attach your light green yarn to the top of your heal with a slip stitch.
  11. Chain 2 and double crochet your way around the top. Join to the first double crochet with a slip stitch and fasten off.
  12. Weave in ends.

The Daisies:

Note: make sure to leave long ends on all sides to attach the daisies to the slippers with.

  1. Make 6 single crochets into a magic circle in yellow.
  2. Join to the first single crochet with a slip stitch, yarning over with the white yarn to change colour.
  3. *Chain 6, slip stitch into next stitch* repeat 6 times to make 6 flower petals.
  4. Fasten off.
  5. Make 8 daisies.
  6. Place 4 daisies on the side of each slipper, pulling the ends through with a crochet hook, the white ends on one side of a stitch, the yellow ones on the other side. Tie ends together with a double knot on the inside of the slipper and cut the yarn.

I hope the slippers also give you this great barefoot in the grass feeling that I’ve been loving since childhood.

Love,
Lo

    • I’m glad you like them 🙂 That’s a good idea, I should work on different sizes! I’d love to see a picture of the mini-slippers if you end up making them. 🙂

    • Oh my. I just redid the math, it looks like I made an error and the pattern should say 21 stitches. Sorry about that, I freehanded the slipper and did the math of the pattern (wrongly apparently) afterwards. I’ll fix the pattern now. Thank you for pointing this out! So you can go on with 21 stitches, the important part is that it the width fits your foot at this point.
