Of all the slippers available, I would say that crocheted slippers are the most comfortable to wear. They form to your feet better than any other kind of slippers that you can buy. They don't feel bulky and when wearing them it's almost as if you're wearing socks…only the slippers keep your feet warmer!
Most store-bought slippers, even though they are warm, feel big, bulky and sometimes even awkward…especially those flip-flops. And not only that, wearing store-bought slippers often makes you feel like you are wearing shoes. I don't know about you, but I hate wearing shoes inside (except my platforms which I wear in the kitchen to help me reach better.) Other than that, shoes are meant to be worn outside, in my opinion.
Crocheted slippers are a great alternative to store-bought because they never get in the way when curling up on the couch, when sitting cross-legged on the floor when reading or playing with young children. They are so comfortable you can even wear them in bed at night.
Not only are they comfortable, they are also quick and easy to make as well as easy to care for. For the price of one store-bought pair of slippers you can buy yarn and crochet slippers for your whole family, thus saving you tons of money. Or you can just make several pairs for yourself so that you always have a clean pair to wear.
Because they are so cheap and easy to make, you can make a pair for all your outfits…and always walk around in matching style. And depending on the pattern, one pair can easily be crocheted up in one evening.
An easy slipper pattern is a great way to learn how to crochet, even when it comes toteaching young children how to crochet. They can easily be completed before the new crocheter loses interest in the project and gives up.
Crocheted slippers also make great gifts for everyone on your list, and they are sure to please every recipient!
The only downside of crocheted slippers is that they tend to be slippery, so if you have a lot of hardwood floors you will have to watch your step until you get used to wearing them.
