You work the first part of your single crochet as you would normally work it in the first St. You leave the 2 strands of yarn on the hook. Insert the hook through the second stitch, pull the yarn through. You will have 3 loops on your hook. Wrap the yarn over your hook and pull the yarn through all 3 loops. This creates your single crochet decrease. Written by Teresa Richardson Skill Level: Intermediate Size H Crochet Hook 4-Ply Yarn 2 Yarn markers of a contrasting color Slipper Modification:I have identified 3 sections in the instructions where you are able to make the slipper longer or shorter. You can use a larger crochet hook to make the overall size of the slipper larger. You can make the width of the slipper larger by adding more increase stitches in rounds 1-3.
