Warm your feet with these easy crochet square slippers!
Design Story and Inspiration for the Crochet Square Slippers
I really love this square pattern that I came up with for a crochet lovey pattern (that I haven’t quite finished yet!). I released the square by itself as a coaster and everyone loved it as much as I do!
So I decided to see if I could incorporate this square design into slippers – and it worked! I love the way these turned out. They are made with worsted weight yarn so they aren’t too thick to walk around on, they are really cute, and they are comfy and keep your feet warm. Those are all wins in my book!
Yarn Options for These Easy Crochet Square Slippers
You can use any worsted weight yarn that gets gauge. For this sample, I used worsted weight yarns that I got at the Dollar Tree (Just Yarn Worsted and Crafter’s Square Acrylic), so these were super cheap and I was able to make several squares with all the leftover yarn I didn’t use for the slippers.
These slippers are also a great way to use up leftover yarn! You don’t have to make the main body of the slipper in one color, try stripes or just the toe and heel areas in a different color and use up some of your stash!

Crochet Slipper Details
These slippers are worked from the toe up in rounds to create the front of the slipper, then in rows to the back, where they will need to be seamed. The squares are created separately and sewn in.
The slipper body and the square are in two separate videos, which are linked below to give you a complete video tutorial for the slippers. You will need to reference this written pattern for your size, so keep it handy. 🙂
