Hook size G or H (I used H) 4 ply yarn-- scraps (2 oz)
Ch 33 (or as long as the foot)
DC in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across, (go thru both loops) ch 3 and turn.
Now DC in each dc across, ch 3 turn.
Keep doing this till you have 12 - 13 rows, end off with a 12" tail of yarn.
Thread tail onto a sewing needle and weave yarn through one end of the oblong, pull tightly to gather, then whip stitch down folded slipper to a bit farther than half way. Finish off and cut yarn. Whip stitch heel. You can add a pom pom if you like.
These do crochet up quickly and you could do them in any size by varying the number of sts and rows. You can also add a dc cuff.
