Has anyone seen a (free) pattern for such a thing? If they had some type of tie or strap or closure to help keep them on, that would be a plus! I'm looking for about a 1-year-old size.

Of course seamless would be nice, but I even thought of trying the Ugg pattern in a bulkier yarn and bigger needles and seeing how that would felt.

I found this, although it's more of a felted sock even though it is referred to as a bootie:

This version is free...
Fulled Booties, free pattern, child medium (http://knitting.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www.dawnbrocco.com/booties.html)

Here is the entire pattern...
Fulled Family Booties (http://www.dawnbrocco.com/patterns/fulledfam.html)

Or here's another idea...
Felt Slipper Pattern (http://knitting.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www.geocities.com/FashionAvenue/Stage/4944/freebees.html%23Felt)

What about the Fiber Trends patterns for Felt Boot Slippers (scroll down)...
Fiber Trends Felt Boot Slippers (http://www.yarn-store.com/knitted-felting.html)

Or the book Felted Knits (http://www.yarn-store.com/knitted-felting.html) by Beverly Galeskas has a cute one on the cover (scroll down).

I hope one of these might help! :D

Well, tonight I actually looked inside my copy of Felted Knits by Beverly Galeskas to find that she has a pattern for baby booties, but the pattern is for 3 and 6 month sizes (on two needles). The pattern for the mohair ballet slippers (pictured in the lower left corner of the cover) has children's and women's sizes.

I just made a pair from a pattern in this book- although its for a size up to 6 months-or so it says, so it may not help you. They are Mary Jane style w/ a strap/ elastic & button.

Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Knitting - they are called pitter patter


Pics of the booties are here

And yes, here's one more idea...wasn't even looking for it and it found me while I was Googling for something else. :teehee:

Free pattern from Knitting at KNoon Designs, Family of Slippers (http://www.knittingatknoon.com/slipperpatt.html)

Okay...no more, I say, no more! My list of future projects is plenty long! :rofl: But I know I will have to give some of these a try...
