I am a hand knitter, crocheter, machine knitter, and have recently begun using a circular sock machine (csm). I manufacture some hard-to find knitting accessories such as the multiple yarn twister/winder, machine knitters GARTER BARS, mini garter bars, and needle stoppers. I also write and sell CUT-SEW-FELT Patterns using recycled sweaters, as well as hand-knitting & crochet patterns.
I LOVE to hand knit most of all. Easy projects are my game as we travel quite a bit and I love to knit no-brainers. oh yeah, and as you can see by my patterns.....I am the slipper Queen!
Check out my blog where I have many FREE patterns: auntekristy.blogspot.com

Options" Slipper Pattern, a pattern where you make the choices! Knit the top part of the slipper, choose the type of sole you want: Knit, Crochet, or cut out of a pre-felted sweater. Select the method that you want to join the top and sole too! Very clear instructions as well as photos are provided for all choices. Unique heel structure makes for super fit and comfort. You will even see my top-secret tip (shhhh!) on making your slipper non-skid. This pattern is very, very easy but will make your friends and family ooh & aah when they receive these as gifts. Want to make and sell them for Craft shows, bazaars, etc.? Yes! you can!
Knit with size US #8 or 9 needles and worsted weight yarn held double throughout.
You will need approx. 150-190 yds for tops of slippers, and approx. 150-190 yds for soles (unless you are using a pre-felted sweater sole).
4 sts & 5 rows in stockinette st, w/yarn held double = 1"
4 sts in Garter st, w/yarn held double = 1"
