Crocheted moccasin

I just did these over the past three days. These turned out great.I used two strands of DK acrylic yarn. It is a local Pakistani yarn, looks nice and sturdy. However as someone mentioned at crochetville, this pattern would look still better in suede. It is done entirely in sc with some sl st at the finish. I had to redo the first foot to get the fit exactly right but still I finished it in two evenings. That may also be due to the fact that I had been starving myself off knitting and crochet for the past few weeks.
This is a very easy and quick pattern in which the length of the slipper is personalized and adjusted according to your required size. So it works well for all adult sizes.

  1. Salaams and Hello there

    I've stumbled on to your blog and frankly i love what you've done. I'm a beginner at crocheting. I can crochet if i have the pattern picture with the stitches drawen at each point, but i can't understand when the pattern is written. Can u help me. I'd like to know how to read the pattern of your crocheted moccasins. I hope you reply. my e-mail address is

    Wasalaams and regards

  2. As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sister,

    Oh these are so cute! and practical! :D

    Now if I make the exact pattern you have posted, what size will that fit?

    Just a tip, next PDF add your blog link on as well, so others can find all the other great things you have to offer, insha'Allah.

    Jazaki'Allahu khair for sharing, much appreciated.

    Wa'alaykum as-salaam
    Love Farhana

  3. thank you for your beautifu mocassin
    I will try to do it (because of the translation , I'm not sure I can)

    best regards


  4. Lovely mocassin. Would love to try it.

  5. Hi. I stumbled over your blog while browsing through another crochet link site. Wow, is all I can say about your work. I especially like the Lacy Lilac Cardigan. I'm in Reno, NV and isn't it ironic how something as simple as crochet can bring people from all walks of life and cultures together?
    I also admired your moccasins and can't wait to try them out.
    My current obsession is trying to come up with a "snood" or headcovering pattern that is pretty, yet functional.
    As an aside, the quality of your work suggests that you would make quite exceptional Estonian Lace. Have you ever tried it? :-)
    I look forward to coming back to view your blog again in the future.

  6. Hello, Although many miles separate us, our hearts are joined with a simple hook and a ball of yarn!

    I googled crocheted moccasins and came upon your blog. I love those moccasins and will try to sit myself down this evening and ring in the New Year making those for myself. I love your work, thanks for sharing them for free, many times patterns of that quality are for sale. I thank you


    my blog site:

  7. Thank you so very much for this pattern. I have wanted some moccasin's for a long time, but could only find baby ones. These are beautiful!!! Love your work, :-)

  8. Thank you for sharing your lovely pattern with us, so very kind of you.
    I may try to make them for Mom who has a hard time with conventional store bought slippers. They tend to have a very fat, cushioned sole that her feet fall off of and she walks on the sides instead of the bottoms. This design looks like it would suit her very well.
    Thanks again,
    your hooking friend in the U.S.

  9. What does ch6+2 mean in the beginning of the pattern? Should I just chain 8?

  10. Thank you for a great pattern and very good instructions, I maid one this morning in a about 3 hours. looks and fits great. :-) Regards Sheila from France.

  11. Hi Umme!! I love this pattern, thank you so much for sharing it! I just wanted to let you know I made a pair of my own and blogged about it here I love your blog, and hope your having a wonderful evening!! :)

  16. Thank you for the pattern. I can't wait to make these. Could be a great Christmas gift idea!

  17. I love these!! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. I can't wait to make them.

  18. I finished a pair for my father today. He was so happy and they fit. Thanks. I've been looking for a slipper pattern that he could wear and they are so easy for him to put on. He's 92 and has been wanting me to make him some slippers for a few years. Chii-Miigwitch, many thanks.

  19. Hi! I love your pattern. I imagine it with a contrasting top in variegated yarn. But I want to make them for my sons, and it reads as adjustable for adult sizes. How can I adjust it to children's sizes?

  21. The link to the pattern doesn't seem right. I found this one on Ravelry, via Pinterest,, but when I click on the link it shows these moccasins with fringe. Are they the same?

  22. The one you found on ravelry was a project loosely based on tbis pattern.

  23. The pattern isn't showing up...I would love to try and make these. Winter is coming!

    1. Thanks for pointing out. Have updated the link.

  24. Found this Intro to the Tribal Moccasin On Pintrest and it says its FREE yet every link I click it wants a fee to obtain the Pattern. Is this right? Or have I been Baited? I do love the moccasins and sure would like to make a few pair for my grandchildren... I have 17 Grands and 3 great Grands. Obviously Im not making them for All of them A few are adults now but for sure the younger ones 6 I think... If you could set me on a path to the Correct link for the FREE Moccasins I would greatly appreciate it... Thanks so much. Lynda

  25. The pattern was free for the initial several years but now it is not. I'm afraid you followed an outdated link. You can buy the pattern if you choose to, thanks.
