Full Answer

To crochet a simple women's slipper:

  1. First, crochet five stitches and join to form a round. Then crochet 17 rows in the single-crochet stitch in a circular pattern, increasing the stitches in steady increments each round.
  2.  
  3. After 17 rows have been crocheted, crochet 29 rows in double-crochet stitches, increasing in increments each round and leaving five of the single-crochet stitches unworked. This provides the top of the opening for the foot.
  4. Next, crochet even rows of double-crochet stitches until the slipper is the desired length. Then crochet an extra row of double-crochet stitches to provide a backing on the heel.
  5. After tying off the yarn, make a backing by folding the last row in half and butting the edges at the desired location on the edge of the slipper. The backing is sewn in place with a needle.
  6.  
  7. Decorate the finished slipper as desired with buttons, embroidery, tassels or bows.
