We remember a similar pattern like this from our high school days! Back in the 1960?s everyone wanted to knit these, as they were fun, and easy to make. They will expand to fit different sizes of feet, so it?s a good pattern for beginners. No shaping required! This pattern used worsted weight yarns, and knitting needles, US # 7, # 8. This size needle also makes for a nice dense fabric that will wear better. Make these now and enjoy some of the past pleasures!

Frugal Knitting Haus
The Frugal Knitting Haus was founded in July of 1989. It began around the innovative patterns of our founder, designing quick and simple patterns using up leftover scraps of yarn. Since her start, hundreds of knitting patterns have been designed and are available through the eight different books that are published by the Frugal Knitting Haus. The patterns are all different, but the design concept through the years hasn't changed. The name "frugal" is right on target, given our patterns that use the leftover scraps of yarn, bits and pieces of a skein or less that would otherwise not find a purpose. Whether it is a holiday decoration, a baby blanket or adult afghan, sweaters, bazaar items, toys, hats, slippers, gifts, or just plain useful items for use around the house, you will find it all here. We've put a large number of patterns on our site, to get you started with the "frugal" knitting concept that will surely clean those odds and ends of yarn out of the bottom of your knitting basket.
