Going around the house in a pair of stitch slippers doesn’t sound like a great idea when it’s summer and the sun is blazing outside. A pair of simple, thin slippers would be a much better idea, but you’d definitely change your mind when the seasons change and the temperature starts to drop. While you may fancy your lightweight slippers during warm days, nothing prepares you better for winter than this pair of stitch slippers. But wait, not just any stitch slippers. We’re specifically talking about this pair of green (and rainbow-colored) stitch slippers!
The genius behind these fluffy slippers is Lianka Azulay, a Brazil-born woman who has started crocheting since she was 7. Lianka then came up with the crocodile (or you can call it dragon, if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones) stitch slippers. Lianka revealed, her love for dragons, elves, and other mythical creatures which inspired her to create the captivating footwear. The DIY crocheted boots aren’t just unique and cozy; they’re also a perfect gift idea, especially since winter is nearby.
Lianka herself designed her very first crocodile stitch slippers for her baby when she found out she was pregnant. Nothing is cuter than crocodile stitch slippers in rainbow colors, after all. Which is why, if someone you know is expecting and you happen to have a lot of time on your hands, you can always try crocheting the stitch slippers as a unique gift.
To start, you’d need approximately 255 gram of worsted weight #4 yarn, size F (3.75 mm) crochet hook Yarn needle and sewing needle as well as 6 size 3/4” (19 mm) buttons as decorations. Check out the videos below to see the procedure.
