Legwarmer Slippers -free crochet pattern-


These crochet legwarmer boot style slippers are a result of a custom order that I recently made for a customer.  I was sent a random photo of some slippers that were posted on a local buy/sell web site, so "someone" has made these before.  But from which pattern?  Did they invent them?  What materials did they use?  I do not know!  A google image search brought me this one and only photo which has since been removed.  ( I assume they sold them!)  So... began the thought process.  The slipper bottoms look a lot like the bottoms of of my short crocodile boots, so I rolled with that.  The tops, are really easy, just basically rows of dc stitches.  The tops are attached to the bottoms as you work from top to bottom, with no sewing required! But as simple as they are, they are quite cute and comfy!  Enjoy!
