Faux fur pom poms are showing up all over knit and crochet accessories this season, and I decided to jump on the trend with these cute fur pom pom crochet slippers. These simple slippers are worked with two strands of worsted weight yarn held together and a big hook so they work up quickly making them a great afternoon project or handmade gift idea.
Supplies needed to make your own crochet slippers:
- Worsted Weight Yarn – I used All About You Essential Acrylic in Burgundy

I made my fur pom poms using fur yarn, and I think they turned out pretty great. They are super fluffy and cute, but be aware that the process of making the pom poms is a bit messy.
- Wrap the fur yarn around your four fingers several times until it is about as full as you want your finished pom pom to be.
- Tie a length of the worsted weight yarn tightly around the middle of your fur yarn loops.
- Cut through the fur yarn loops on both sides to form the pom pom.
- Trim up the pom pom to create a nice round shape.
- Use a yarn needle to thread the worsted weight yarn used to tie the pom pom through the front of the slipper.
- Tie the pom pom in place with a double knot and use a yarn needle to weave the ends into the backside of the slipper.
