As the weather turns chilly, it’s time to consider a pair of slippers. There are hundreds of slipper patterns to choose from, all in variety of styles, textures and colors but if you’re seeking quick crochet projects, here are a few to consider.
For those looking for a quick, one skein project, then these two patterns by Bernat might just be the ticket. The Sox-Crochet Slippers is a speedy project created using one skein of Bernat Sox and a size US D (3) crochet hook. This project is very easy and is perfect for a beginner crocheter.
