Need to Do

Claws – make three for each foot
Using white and 3mm hook

ch 2, 8 tc in 2nd ch from hook, join with slst in 1st tc
Ch 2, 8 tc, join with slst in 1st tc (8sts)
Ch 2, tc in same st, 2 tc in next st, * 1 tc, 2tc in next st, rep from *, join with slst in 1st tc (12sts)
ch 2, 12 tc, join with slst in 1st tc (12sts)
ch 2, tc in same st, 2 tc in next st, * 1 tc, 2tc in next st, rep from *, join with slst in 1st tc (18sts)
ch 2, 18 tc, join with slst in 1st tc (18sts)
ch 2, tc in same st, 2 tc in next st, * 1 tc, 2tc in next st, rep from *, join with slst in 1st tc (27sts)
ch 2, 27 tc, join with slst in 1st tc (27sts)

fasten off.

Stuffing stoppers for the claws. Make 6 in same colour as claws.
Using white and 3mm hook

Ch 2, 12 tc in 2nd chain from hook, join with slst in 1st tc

ch 2, 2 tc in same st, 2 tc in the next 2 sts, 3 tc in the next st * 2 tc in the next 3 sts, 3 tc in the next
st, rep from * to end join with slst in 1st tc. (27 sts) Fasten off

Lightly stuff the claws. They don't all need to be identical, as long as they are roughly even they'll
be perfect.

Using double crochet all the way round attach a stuffing stopper to the open end of each claw. This
can be a little fiddly until you've done a few sts. Before you close the claw totally you might want to
add a little more stuffing. Join with a slst in the 1st dc and fasten off.

Join the Claws
Using white and 3mm hook
Line up three of the claws side by side. Where the circles meet slip stitch them together. I did 5 slip
stitches to join two claws together, you may need more or less depending on how well stuffed your
claws are. Hopefully the picture below helps explain how to join the claws:

Foot
Using two strands of black held together and 4mm hook

Hold a set of three claws so the stuffing stoppers are upper most. Pick a stitch on the outside edge of
one of the claws and join on the wool for the foot.

Ch 2, 1 tc in same st, 1 tc in each st until 1 stitch before the join between two claws.

You're going to treble 3 sts together at this point; the st before the join, the end of the joining dc and
the st after the join. Once the treble 3 together is complete carry on with 1 tc in each st until you
reach the st before the next claw join. Treble 3 sts together as before. Continue in this way all the
way round. Join with a slst in 1st tc.

2nd Round
ch 2, tc in same st, 1 tc in each st until one sts before tr3tog on last row, treble the next 3 sts
together, carry on working 1 tc in each st until one stitch before the next treble and treble the next 3
sts together. Work in this way for the rest of the round, slst in 1st tc to join.

3rd round
repeat 2nd round (43sts)

4th round work 1 tc in each st, join with slst in 1st tc
5th - 12th – work as 4th rnd
(Sizing Note – These slippers were designed to fit a UK size 10, if you want to make them smaller
work fewer rows than the 12 stated. You'll need to experiment a little to get the right number of
rows for the intended foot.)

At this point you may need to fasten off. It depends where you joined the first st for the foot.

Lay the slipper flat and find the middle stitch. Count 6 sts to the right and join wool here. (still
working double strand and 4mm hook) Once again, hopefully the picture below will make things
clearer. The crochet hook on the left marks the middle stitch and the one on the right is 6sts along
and this is where you join the wool for the next row.

ch 2, tc in same st, htc, 11 dc, htc, tc in each st round, slst to join
TURN from here work back and forth
ch 2 tc in same st, 1 tc in each tc leave the hdc and dc's unworked turn (30st)
2nd row - ch 2 tc in same st, 1tc in each tc Turn
3rd - 4h – repeat 2nd row

Heal shaping
ch 2, tc in same st, 8tc, tc3tog, 6tc, tc3tog, 9tc turn
ch 2 tc in same st, 7tc, tc3tog, 4tc, tc3tog, 8tc turn
ch 2, tc in same st, 6tc, tc3tog, 2tc, tc3tog
making sure seam is on the inside slip stitch back seam together. Fasten off

Ankle
Join wool at back seam, ch 2, tc in same stitch, work 2 tc in each end tc and one tc in each of the sts
across the front of the foot. Join with slst in 1st tc

Ch 2, 1 tc in each st all round, slst to join.

Work the above round 3 more times. Fasten off.

Roll the ankle down to the top of the first row of treble crochet. You're going to be working an
elongated double crochet over the roll to secure it.

Starting at the back seam insert hook in between two treble crochet posts. Draw a long loop
through, then yrh and draw through, there's now one loop on the hook. Insert hook through next
space between two treble crochets, yrh, draw through, yrh and draw through all loops on hook.
Continue in this manner until round is complete join with a slst and fasten off.

Foot Pads – make two of each

Toe Pad
Using two strands of white held together and 4mm hook

Ch 17, tc in 3rd chain from hook, 1 tc in each ch (15 tc in total)
Turn ch 2, tc in same st, 1 tc in each tc across
turn ch 2, tc in same st , 1 tc in each tc across
turn ch 2, tc in same st, 1 tc in the next 3 sts, 3 tc in the next st, 1 tc in the next 5 sts, 3 tc in the next
st, 1 tc in the last 4 sts

turn ch 2, tc in same st, 1 tc in the next 4 sts, 3 tc in the next st, 1 tc in the next 7 sts, 3 tc in the next
st, 1 tc in the last 4 sts. Fasten off.

Heel Pad
Using two strands of white held together and 4mm hook

ch 2, work 12 tc in 2nd ch from hook, slst in 1st tc to join

ch 2, 2 tc in the same st, 2 tc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 htc in each of the next 3sts, 2 tc in each of
the next 3 sts, 2 htc in each of the next 3 sts, slst into 1st tc to join

ch 2, tc in same st, 2 tc in next st, (1 tc, 2 tc in next st)twice), (1 hdc, 2 hdc in next st)three times), (1
tc, 2 tc in next st)three times), (1 htc, 2 htc in next st)three times), slst into 1st tc to join. Fasten off.

Position the toe pads two rows under the claws and sew in place. The heel pads get sewn in place on
the row before the heel shaping.

Sew in any loose ends and your monster feet are ready to stomp!
