Sock Monkey Slippers {crochet}

I apologize for the delay in getting this posted. I would have included it in the Crochet Slipper post but it was already so long. Plus these are unique and I thought they deserved their own post.

So here we go…

You will want to start by checking out my original post on Crochet Slippers, where you will find the link for the free pattern. Also make sure you take a look at “Important things to note on the Mary Jane pattern and changes I made” at the end of that post.

I used a size 5 hook and a worsted weight yarn. My feet are a size 8 or 9 depending and they fit my feet comfy. These would easily still fit a smaller foot (size 7), they just may need to wear socks. For really small feet, size 4- 6, use a size 4 hook.

1. Crochet the first 4 rows in red for the mouth.
2. Change to a cream or white yarn for the next 3 rows. NOTE: According to the pattern there are only 6 rows for the “toe” but I added an extra row – row 7 – for the nose part of the  monkey. Just do one more row of 24 stitches.
3. Switch to the brown for the rest of slipper and crochet according to the pattern. I stopped after row 7 of the upper portion.
4. Ears (make 4, using brown yarn)
R1: Ch 2, 5 sc in second chain from hook.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around. (10 sts)
R3 and 4: sc 10
Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.
5. Eyes (make 4, using black yarn)
Ch 2, 5 sc in second chain from hook.
Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.
6. Using a blunt needle, sew on eyes and ears.
7. Stitch on nose and mouth with black yarn and the blunt needle.

And that’s it! They are a little more involved than other slippers but for any sock monkey lover, it’s totally worth it! Happy crocheting!
