If you’re looking for a cozy little gift for someone small, the Pom Pom Slippers are the cutest gift around.
These little slippers are squishy and soft, and sure to become your nephew’s favorite comfy shoes. Because the Pom Pom Slippers are made out of chunky 100% merino wool yarn, they add extra cushion to protect little feet.
The Cascade 128 Superwash yarn is soft and bulky, and machine washable. It’s made out of 100% wool and adds plenty of plush to these slippers.
These little slippers are more durable than socks but just as cozy. They’re so easy to make and take no time at all. After you’ve made one pair, the whole family will be asking for some. You could even make some in holiday colors!
Or, consider buying the Crochet Kit as a present for one of your crafty loved ones so they can try their hand at this project too! The kit includes all the yarn needed to make these little shoes, and a detailed digital PDF pattern.

Assembly and finishing:
Turn slippers right side out and fold cuff down to place pom poms.
Make 4 pom poms by winding daffodil yarn around 2 fingers approximately 120 times. Slide yarn off fingers and tightly double knot another piece of yarn around the center. Leaving the long ends free, cut the ends of the yarn and fluff until the desired shape is achieved. Trim any uneven pieces, and use the long tails to attach to the cuff of the slipper by pulling the daffodil tails through to the backside of the cuff, tying in 2 double knots, and pulling back through to be blended into the pom pom.
These are some of the easiest slippers you’ll ever make. And they’re so soft too, thanks to the plushy yarn. Make as many as you can, and give them as gifts. Or give the kits as gifts to loved ones who create just as much as you. Everyone will be so grateful they have someone as thoughtful and creative as you in the family. The Pom Pom Slippers will warm hearts and feet.
