Crochet Sneaker Slippers in the spirit of Converse, by Mun Tekemä

The slippers fit a foot size EU ca 43-47 (US adult 9-13).

A 3 mm crochet hook was used.

The yarn that was originally used (Novita 7 Veljestä, a brand from Finland) is listed as worsted, but as it at most could be described as light worsted I would recommend that you use a light worsted or DK weight if you substitute (translaters remarks).

Row 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 1st ch, join first and last dc with sl st.

Row 2: Start every row with ch 3 = 1 dc. 2 dc in every st. Close with a sl st.

Row 3: *Dc in next st, 2 dc in the following st* repeat *-,-* until end of row.

Row 4: Dc in every st, no increases.

Change the color of your yarn.

Rows 5-8: Continue in dc.

The slipper is divided into the front flap and the rest of the slipper.

Front flap:

Row 9: Start the row with; 2 dc in the next st, 4 dc, 2 dc in the next st, 4 dc, 2 dc in the next st = 14 dc.

Dc back and forth ca 12-14 rows.

Last row: Ch 1, 3 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc, 3 sc.

Rest of the slipper:

Row 9: Dc in the last dc of the front flap (= 3 dc in the same st) and continue across. No increases. Continue crocheting back and forth.

Row 10-12: Start and finish the row by increasing 1 st (= +2 sts per row).

Row 13: Start the row by increasing 1 dc in the first st, then increase 1 dc in every 8th st and increase 1 dc in the last st.

Row 14: No increases.

Row 15-17: Start and finish the row by increasing 1 st (= +2 sts per row).

Row 18: As row 13, but increase in every 9th st.

Row 19: No increases.

Rows 20-21: Increases at the beginning and end of the row, if necessary.

Crochet until 22-25 rows. On the last rows no increases were made. Leave a long end to seam the back seam.


Seam the back seam. Weave in ends. Crochet 2 rows of sc around the slipper (but NOT around the front flap).

Side label:

Row 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 1st ch, join first and last dc with sl st.

Row 2: 2 dc in every st. Close with a sl st.

Row 3: Sc the last row. 2 sc in every 3rd st, close with a sl st. Leave a long end to seam the label onto the sneaker. Finish the label by sewing on a star and a dotted line. Or instead of a star, sew on the initials of the recipient of the slippers.

Finish the sneakers by threading a wide thread meant for sneakers into every 3rd sc.

  1. Kiitos ohjeesta! Olin juuri aloittanut neulomaan tossuja, mutta taidanpa sittenkin virkata!

  2. Tyylikkäät! Jos olisin vähänkin innostunut virkkaamisesta, niin tällaiset tekisin. :) Kiitos ohjeesta.

  3. Thank you for providing the instructions in English :) I am an inexperienced crocheter and one instruction I don't quite understand is "seam the back seam". Would it be possible to include some pictures of the back to make this a bit clearer?

    1. Seam the back seam... I do believe that means to sew it together...?

  4. I was wondering the same thing about the back seam, I'm not too sure what it means!

  5. It means fold the back part (the heel end) up like a taco and sew or stitch the two sides together to form the heel and back of the slipper.

  10. can you please tell me what size the boot is in english you got ca and american on but no uk size

  11. is this in UK stitches or US stitches once translated? thanks!

    1. I do believe that it's in US stitches once translated, because if you look at the picture of the single crochet, it looks like a US single crochet (UK double crochet).

  12. Thanks for posting this translated! I'm very excited about the pattern, and just started on the first of 2 pair for my daughter for Christmas (we're in WI).

  16. can anyone tell me if we have to DC on top of the chain 3 stitch end of each row?
