It all started with a photo. Gorgeous crochet slippers in bright colors with color-blocked toes that I loved! But...the etsy listing (which I cannot find to show you now) was only for the finished work and I really wanted to hook up my own.
So, I got to work searching for a pattern that might work. I liked this slipper from 2 Create in Color and started with her edits to this pattern from Zoom Yummy. I like the results, but it still wasn't quite right. And so, I went searching again and incorporated some things from this pattern from Goodknits.
I really like how they came out (although my inspiration pic was in single crochet and I really like the look of the smaller stitch) and I love that I kept the main body of the slippers in the same color. They are gifts for Olivia's teachers and so I love that they are similar but still individual. I hope they are a hit!
Did you notice the tiny pair? One of Liv's teachers has small feet, so I had to make a couple more edits on the black pair (and use Jack's feet as my tester).
