Living in the frozen tundra (aka Michigan’s Upper Peninsula) is every little girl’s dream, right? Well… maybe not, but we live in the castle our “Kings” (aka husbands & daddies) provide for us. And while glass slippers may not be ideal for the “Ice Queens” (aka moms) and “Ice Princesses” (aka daughters) in our area, having a closet full of modern, trendy, comfy and, most importantly, WARM slipper boots is a MUST!
“LOOK, warm, happy feet!”
I try to design at least one new slipper boot each blustery season and this year’s design is my Women’s Slouchy Slipper Boots! Because I needed to add more than one pair to my collection this year, this design includes 2 Cuff Options: Extra Tall Slouchy Cuffs (shown in the photos above) & Slouchy Cuffs w/ Button Tabs (shown in the photos below).
The color combinations and button/slide options are endless! Stop on over to the Ravelry listing to see the combinations testers have used or stop by A Crocheted Simplicity on Facebook to see what fans have posted. I’d LOVE to see your finished slippers!!! Please feel free to share a photo of your finished pair on my Facebook page and don’t forget to include your Facebook page for a tag! 🙂
Yarn Combinations I used for the Slippers pictured
- Blue/Grey Striped Cuff: Boot: Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky in Silver Grey; Cuff: Bernat Sheep(ish) in Stripes Hommeish; Rhinestone Slides
- Lime Green Cuff: Boot: Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky in Charcoal; Cuff: Vanna’s Choice in Lime
- Blue Button Tab Cuff: Boot: Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky in Fisherman; Cuff: Lion Brand Heartland in Glacier Bay; Buttons: Sewology from Hobby Lobby
You may have guessed that my preferred yarn for the boot portion of these slippers is Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky. It is my “go-to” yarn for the boots of my slippers because it’s a 80% acrylic & 20% wool blend, it makes a nice comfy sole and the wool adds the perfect warmth; it is my favorite Bulky Weight / 5 yarn to date. If you do not have access to LB Chunky, no worries! This pattern has been tested with several different yarns including: Loops & Threads Charisma (found at Michael’s Stores) and also by holding 2 strands of a Medium Worsted Weight / 4 together and working as 1 strand (just makes sure you match gauge and fit will be great!)
