If you use a “thin” category 4 yarn your slipper sole may be a bit short. You can add an extra sc round but keep it mind crochet footwear is forgiving and stretchy.

I designed project trackers! This is the large print version for tired eyes. So much easier than using apps, scraps of paper or a plain notebook.
Three project sizes, a handy ruler and hook guide inside the cover and plenty of rooms for notes in each pattern.

I have had bad eyesight since age 18 so large print is a godsend when you can’t see apps and dark yarn, let alone going from one to the other on a crochet-a-thon during a netflix binge.
