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

8 rows to make these! Yep that's it.
well.... 4 rows + 4 rounds. If you can sc, hdc, and count, then you can make these.
Using a rather large crochet hook (10mm) and 2 strands of felt-able wool yarn held together, these are very fast, I crochet one slipper in about 25 min or less.
Your non-crafty friends will be amazed at how "hard" you worked to make these slippers (wink, wink). You can get creative and make them striped, add buttons, etc. These make for fabulous craft show, bazaar, or farmers market items. As with all my patterns you can feel free to make and sell as many as you like.
*I include detailed felting instructions in case you've never felted before, and also tell you what I use for a non-skid solution for slippers.
*Bonus instructions include double soles for those wanting thicker soles (technically they'd then become 12 row slippers!).
*Links to reference tutorials/video are included as well.
Approximately 8 hdc per 4"
with yarn held double.
