MAN Slippers ROBUSTUS


crochet man slippers robustus

I love to crochet for my man and these warm and comfy slippers are "simply perfect" for his man-sized feet (UK Size 11.5)




These crochet man slippers use my favourite crochet stitch "front post double crochet" and "back post double crochet" which makes the construction of these slippers very sturdy hence the name I have given them "ROBUSTUS".

Handmade with a 100% aran yarn and a H-8 (5mm) hook they work up quite quickly, so you can make a pair of man slippers for the man in your life within 24hrs. 

ROBUSTUS Man Slippers not only look great on men, but also look great on women, so don't miss out, go ahead and make yourself a pair as well.  See photo below and in other photos mine are the smaller pair of slippers.

Approximate measurements range from 9.5in to 11.5in in length and 3.75in to 4.75in wide.  

You will be able to make slippers in varying sizes by adjusting the row counts and/or the stitch counts, allowing you to easily adjust the length and the width of the slipper to match your foot measurements.

Go ahead have a play, and have some fun!



You can also change the slipper style, from "close" fit around ankle to "loose" fit.  




This crochet slipper pattern also includes accompanying photos at the end of the written pattern.

ROBUSTUS Slippers for Men FREE CROCHET PATTERN




I designed these robust slippers in 2012/2013 for my husband and then made a pair for my son, and a few pairs as gifts for the men in our extended family, as well as a pair or two for myself.  What I love about this crochet slipper pattern is the sturdy construction which makes them longer lasting and just the perfect slipper design for men (although I wear them too so I suppose they are also perfect for women).



I just finished making a new pair for my husband and myself in time for Christmas.  These slippers are just perfect for taking with us to all the family gatherings over the Christmas season.  I prefer to take my shoes off when indoors, so these slippers will be ideal whilst we spend many hours celebrating, feasting and enjoying time with family.

Which leads me to the next step, HOW to make these SLIPPERS.  
I am going to release this pattern FREE of charge for now, and then in the New Year it will be a PAY pattern.  
So in the meantime, ENJOY!
