My crocheted flop

I have been pinning on Pinterest like mad. So, I took out my crochet hooks and decided to create myself a new pair of slippers. This is the pattern I chose:

Slipper pattern

I bought the cotton yarn, had my Youtube handy for the short videos on how to crochet the stitches that I use to know how when my mom taught me. It's been a few years!

I navigated the pattern really well. I was pretty proud of myself! As I was creating it, I thought that the slipper was huge...but I often panic for nothing...so I told myself to relax and finish it and then try it on. Holy smoly!

Dh told me, don't put a flower on it, it should fit me. Yeah, really? It slipped off his foot too. I made a Medium size...or so I thought...but it's actually Monster size. Real funny. I wanted to leave a comment on the pattern page, but there was no place to do it. 

Nice pattern...if I was an elephant!

 Back to the drawing board!


  1. Oh my, how frustrating to spend the time crocheting only to have it not turn out because the pattern was off.

  2. Oh my goodness - that is quite a slipper!!!!
