Tiny and cute, if I may say so myself.

I thought the mini slippers would look lovely as Christmas ornaments too.

As I mentioned, I used my Crochet Slippers Pattern to make them. The original pattern only needed a little bit of tweaking and simplifying.

If you’d like to give this tiny little project a try too, then I hope this pattern for mini slippers will be helpful. The pattern uses US crochet terms. I used lace weight yarn and A/0 (2mm) hook…

Round 1: magic ring – ch 1, 6 sc

Round 2: work in spiral, do not join rounds with slip stitches, mark first stitch of each round…
2 sc in first stitch of previous round,
2 sc in all following stitches,
[stitch count: 12]

Round 3: 2 sc in first stitch of previous round,
1 sc in following stitch,

*2 sc in following stitch,
1 sc in following stitch*,

repeat *…* all around,
[stitch count: 18]

Rounds 4-7: repeat Round 3 [stitch count: 18]

Row 8: 1 Sl stitch in following stitch,
ch 1,
1 sc in 13 following stitches
[stitch count: 14]

Row 9: ch 1, turn,
1 sc in first stitch,
1 sc in all following stitches
[stitch count: 14]

Rows 10-17: repeat Round 9 [stitch count: 14]

Fold the last row in half with the wrong side of the slipper facing out and join the two halves together with slip stitches. Finish off and weave in the ends.

To create a border, attach a yarn of different color to the slipper opening and crochet a single crochet stitch into each stitch all along the opening. Finish off and weave in the ends.

Also, you can use a fabric stiffener to make your mini slippers look neater. I did do that.
