Free Crochet Slouch Boots

This picture shows the slouch a little better. 

Free Crochet Slouch Boot

I am not quite finished with these, I am planning on adding a strap to the front with a button. Just haven't had time to buy them yet. The idea for them actually came to me one night when I was trying to sleep. If you want to see the look I was going for the closest picture I could find was this one I wish I had of done the sole a different colour now. Maybe on the next pair. 

This pattern has not been tested

NOTE: My patterns are free and I would like them to stay that way. You are free to print them out and pass them around but please make sure my blog address is somewhere on the pattern ( so that people know where the pattern originated. 

Please do not sell my patterns or say they are your own. You are free to do whatever you want with the finished item. If you are selling them online please link back the pattern and give me credit. I took the time to write this pattern out so the least you can do is take the small amount of time it takes to give me credit.

  1. This pattern is so cute, i added it to the directory at - Megan

    1. Thank you so much for that. I appreciate it :)

    2. Your patterns are great think you so much for sharing them :) x

  2. Making these in my size!!! Will update you on the strap area. Love this idea- such a cool concept. Thank you.

  3. Omg these are so cute i will have to make one for each one of my girls and nieces. I have 2 daughters, 2 stepdaughters, 3 nieces and I friends that has 2 girls.

    Do you think it will be easy to make bigger
    The kids are 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 16
    Ikr! They all are close in age

    Plus I would like to have a pair I wear size 10 women

    Please if you have bigger sizes let me know. I haven't check all your blog yet.. So I am going to check it out now

  4. Hi there, sorry I do not have any bigger sizes but to increase the length start with a bigger ch. For the bigger sizes you might also have to increase the width. I would just use hdc/dc for the last round to get the width you want.

    Sorry again that I can't be much help

  5. Thank you for the pattern. I'm definitely going to make these (in pink) for my granddaughter.

  6. Hi I'm having trouble with Round 10 instead of ending with 29 stiches I end up with 31. I don't know what am doing wrong because at Round 9 I do end up with 34 stiches. Please help !

    1. Hey there,

      Sorry the stitch count is off. It should be 31. But to make 42 on the next row we actually need 32. I am going to adjust the pattern so let me know if you find any other mistakes that I need to correct.

      Sorry for all the trouble

    2. It isnt just round round 10 I ended up with 3 extra stitches...before that in 9 I had 2, and in 8 I had I have no idea what happened here...a friend is having the same issue

  7. wow thank you . just in time for gift giving !

  8. Thank you for sharing your patten I made them in red and added a green ruffle to for Christmasy slippers the little girl I made then for loves them!

    1. They sound amazing. I would love to see them if you are able to share :)

  9. I was going strong until I got to round 8 where it says sc2 tog. I am sorry but I don't understand what you mean, because other instructions stated sc in same stitch. What is the difference? Thanks

  10. Hi, I am so lost. I have done this pattern over and over again, and each time a different result. From small to big. Each bootie is a different size. I do not know what I am doing wrong.

  11. Hi. I have done up a sole with 68 stitches. What changes would i need to make in order to get the pattern right
