French Press Slippers

I've had the Crochet French Press Slipper pattern set aside for quite some time now, waiting on just the right shade of Malabrigo Worsted to come my way.

Well, when my latest shipment arrived this week and I saw the gorgeous Coco colour-way I knew it was time to start hooking....

This pattern was so quick to whip up (3 hrs MAX!), looks super cute and the finished slippers are SOOO comfy on my tied feet...shoe 1
I made the size 7/8 and a used a 5.5mm hook(not the 5mm they recommended) - they fit my 8 1/2 foot perfectly! I didn't even use 1/2 a 100g skein for my pair of slippers - now that's value!

  6. Very cute and practical at the same time, they look like lovely lounging around shoes. I only live in thongs up here, but they would make a great gift for a dear friend.
