Crocheted Moss Stitch Slippers

Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight. I used Redheart Supersaver in Hunter Green, 7 oz, 364 yards. I had a lot of yarn left over from this large skein.

Hook: 5.00 mm

Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
st - stitch
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
Rnd - Round     dc - double crochet
tbl - through back loops
ss2tog - slip stitch 2 together
hdc2tog - half double crochet 2 together.

How to do the Moss Stitch: The moss stitch is really simple, it's a combination of slip stitch and hdc. You make 1 slip stitch in a st of the previous Rnd, then 1 hdc in the next st. When you are going back across on the next Rnd, you make your ss in the hdc of previous Rnd and your hdc in the ss of the previous Rnd. My photos doesn't really show how neat the moss stitch looks. I have a link to video on how to do it.
