Babouches, granny square based slippers
The “Babouches” are part of my “around the granny square” Ebook: I love Granny squares and to think of new ways to use them.
These slippers are amazingly confortable, they follow the natural curves of your foot like a glove and I love their look, somehow between morrocan Babouches and the pointy shes of Louis XIV (I’m french)
I hope you will also find them fun to crochet, as their construction is a bit unusual, using shorter and longer stitches to do the shaping.
Rated as a “fantastic, clever pattern. What a great adaptation of a granny square/triangle. It was very fast to work up” by a lady who crocheted them.
A quick, fun and seamless project. What else can you ask for ? Great for last minute presents too !
Sized for a medium’s ladie’s foot, with detailed notes on how to very easily alter pattern for longer or shorter feet.
Materials: You will need 2 colors of worsted weight yarn (I used Cascade 220 wool) and a 4 mm (G) hook.
Instructions are written using US crochet terms, with uk equivalents indicated in abbreviations.
Because I was having problems with my download system, all pattern purchases will now be going through Ravelry. Don’t worry, you don’t need to have a Ravelry account though !
If you encounter any problem with the process, please contact me and I’ll send the pattern via email asap.
