After I started wearing the slippers I made here: http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Slippers/, my 5 year old granddaughter told her Mom that she wanted slippers for Christmas. I decided I would make slippers for each of the 4 grandkids which will be in our home on Christmas day. I spent 12 hours trying to come up with my own pattern. Total failure, so I came did a Google search and came up with this pattern: http://www.aokcorral.com/projects/pj212_childrens_knitted_slippers.htm. The pattern its self is free, but you would need to pay for the pattern for the animal faces. I had another idea in mind, so I just created the slippers and created my own decorative face decorations. This is how I did it.
This is a simple pattern, you need to know how to cast on, cast off, knit, and knit 2 together. I used the large size on the pattern to fit my granddaughter’s feet. When I got to the end of the pattern I was confused, until I followed the directions and took the last stitches off the needle and folded it in half as instructed.
Well what do you know; it’s shaped like a stocking. Hurray!
I whip stitched the font closed and I whip stitched up the back.
I then turned it inside out,
and folded down the cuff, I looked just like the slippers in the picture.
