CROCHET SNOWFLAKE SLIPPERS FOR WINTER WONDER-LAND!

Fairy-tale slippers for Snow-Queens!
One piece, toe-up, with snowflake motif

The slippers are based on my Plain Basic SC Slippers, originally designed only to show off the beautiful chunky snowflakes in this pattern! 
Here you have both; A plain slipper-pattern, included the beautiful snowflake motif!
Works up real fast in chunky, warm wool.
I think the snowflakes should be white, which will look great also on any grey- blue- or red shades.
A touch of metallic silver thread make the snowflakes shimmer as the snow on a clear winter-day!
With tiny “snow-balls” around the instep, these slippers stand out as a fairy-tale dream in winter-wonderland!
Fresh off the hook. 
No soles attached ... yet!

PLAIN BASIC SINGLE CROCHET SLIPPERS

Plain, Basic SC-Slippers (Single Crochet stitches only) One piece, toe-up. 

Chunky yarn works up these simple slippers in notime! 
Warm, comfy, and easy! 
The slippers were supposed to be base for appliques and embellish I planned for other designs. 
They came out so simple, neat and well-fitted, so I decided to work out instructions for them. 
Make them in wool or cotton, wear them as they are, or use your creativity; Add colored stripes, appliques, embroidery, pearls, and so on, no limit! 
The basics have no edging around the instep, so here’s room for endless finishing-stitches.
Absolute basics!
BUT... with good toe- and foot-shape,
That's important,also for simple slippers!
I think!!

No edging, can be worn as is, fresh off the hook.
Short sides with space for any edging-stitches though!

Tailored, fabric covered insoles.
With pretty labels, great gift idea!
Tailored crocheted out-soles attached to the bottom!

THE BAGGY LACE PINK CARDIGAN, OR IS IT A SHORT COAT?

I love to change delicate lace-patterns into a chunky garment! 
The lace achieves a completely different look, and turn the most simple shape into sophisticated fashion-wear.
