I am searching for the slipper pattern that 'everyone' was knitting / crocheting the slippers at least 20years ago.
The old Phentex yarn.


:shrug: anyone?

I've heard of phentex, but have never seen it.

thank you for the links....not quite it...the Phentex yarn...if you had dry hands it would 'catch' on your skin...it was totally like a nylon which lasted forever. When crocheting or knitting it didn't feel like yarn at all. Wonder if the Phentex company would have anything? Thank you will look and see the links again.

Okay, so you want the yarn not the pattern? I misunderstood. :shrug: You might try eBay.

I may still have it. I will take a look and will get back if I find it. They still sell the yarn in Zellers.

Hope that helps. We still have a supply of the old Phentex yarn at our store here.

Hi everyone; I am an avid knitter and crocheter. I do volunteer teaching to ladies of all ages and any men who wants to join us. The men here are too shy to participate. For those of you who wish to have the original slipper pattern for the phentex slippers, I have it. The price on my copy is .20 so it is really old lol. Have a great day. Helen

I know this post is old, but I wanted to let you know that when ever I'm home to Hamilton, ON I pick up some of the yarn from the Walmart craft department. They have a pretty big selection.

I also have an old pattern for a pair of slippers that my great-grandmother used to make if you still need one (though from the pictures on one of the links it looks similar).

The original Phentex yarn is now called Phentex Slipper and Craft yarn and is available at Zellers. I've just bought a bunch for Christmas slippers. The following site has a good pattern and picture. http://www.knittin4britain.com/2009/11/phentex-slippers.html?showComment=1272496043692#c511632582 6505813681

I just bought about 20 skeins of phentex for slippers and sent them to my daughter, She wants to knit slippers for her kids. I got it at Zellers,but the skeins are not as large as they were when I was knitting these slippers 30 years ago.

Here's the original Phentex pattern. I knew I'd seen something about this before. Next time, input what you're looking for in the search box at the top of this site. That's where I got my info, from an old thread.

Please edit your post again and remove your email address. Spambots can still read them so it's better to ask for a pm or for people to send you an email through your profile if you have that enabled.

Phentex Slipper and Craft Yarn (http://www.yarnspirations.com/yarns/phentex-slipper-craft-yarn-bernat) is still available to purchase through the Bernat Yarn website. Every skein of Phentex yarn has a slipper pattern on the label. When I recently bought 15 skeins, I got about 9 different patterns!

There is also a great pattern book by Phentex, called "Fun Family Slippers (http://www.yarnspirations.com/pattern-books/phentex-fun-family-slippers)".

I just recently made some men's loafers, using a pattern from that book.

I am still looking for the original pattern. I have not seen it anywhere I have looked online except the picture of the front I have seen here. I would be most happy if you could scan it for me.

I have a crochet pattern for mittens using the Phentex yarn which was 2 ply Capri. At the time I used a similar yarn but can't find it, and I was surfing the web and found Phentex yarn in several online sites. I used the yarn to make large ruffled dishdmops.

I have attached the pattern for the mittens.

Hope this helps you out...

You can order Phentex from Walmart 3oz./85g, JoAnn's and Michaels. All or online orders, however Walmart was the best price and they will send your order to your store for pickup. I believe this will eliminate the shipping charge.

Hope this helps...
