Crochet monster slippers

I love my finished slippers!

I bought the pattern by “knits for life” from etsy for £3.15. It was relatively straight forward to use giving instructions on sizing. I think the pattern was well worth the price and I’m looking forward to making these again.

The ribbing was crocheted using front and back post double crochets. It’s easy to learn how to do these from youtube videos. I love the effect.

Fiyero isn’t sure though! (What do cats know anyway?!)

The slippers have also given me an idea! I might adapt this pattern to make monstrous mittens! What do you think? 🙂

Crochet slipper progress

So I’ve continued crocheting my monster slipper and am pleased with the progress I’ve made. All I’ve got left to do are the claws and finishing the ribbed cuff.

I’m now not actually sure I’ve done back post double crochets before. I have now! 🙂 I think any ribbing I’ve done before has employed half double crochets and front post double crochets. This pattern uses both front and back.

Back post double crochets are tricky!
