Hello,

So glad I found this forum. Lots of wonderful and helpful ideas.

My mother-in-law would always knit slippers that had a popcorn stitch or puff type stitch. Does anyone have a pattern or know where I can get this pattern for these slippers?

Thank you,

Sandy

Hmm...:think: I haven't seen any like that.

I looked at that link but could not find what I was looking for. The stitch looked like a popcorn or puff type stitch and the slipper looked just like a basic slipper...like she worked it in a square and gathered the toe and then closed part of the top and the back but was a puffy type of stitch rather than a straight stitch. She learned the pattern from her mom in Canada.

I've looked all over but can't find this stitch and I asked her, but she's older now and I don't think she remembers.

Thanks for your replies.

Are you sure it was knitted? The only popcorn stitch I know of is for crochet. In knitting it's usually called bobble I think.. :think: I could be wrong though.

Oh, it could be a bobble stitch...I didn't knit back then and I'm know it looked sort of like a popcorn or puff type stitch. Maybe it's a bobble stitch.

Thanks,
Sandy

A link is best. :thumbsup:

I found these which look similar. They aren't really bobbles, but the pattern you linked to didn't look exactly like bobbles to me either exactly. :think: I suspect if you really want bobbles you'll have to make your own pattern with them. You can take a basic pattern like this one and bobble it if you want although it may not fit the same way.

Hi Jan,

Thank you so much for all your help! I do appreciate it very, very much. These are about what I'm looking for...and possibly with bobbles on the one's she used to make with just one color. I do remember she made some like this too with stripes.

Thank you again!!! Have a good day :-)

I live in Laguna Hills! Too bad you aren't closer. We have a Yarn Lady Knit Night on Friday evening. They are moving so they're closed now, but will open in early July. Woo!

BTW..there are a bunch of 'old' type slipper patterns I found on Ravelry. You know you could probably do a seed stitch on some of it to give it a bobbly look, too.

To me, they look just like the checkerboard slippers Jan has found but knit with one colour thick and one colour thin yarn which makes them look more 'bobbley'

Thanks, I'm going to try these slipper and see how they turn out. My mother-in-law is looking for the pattern for me also. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Have a great weekend:-)

I too like the slippers at this website: http://www.pioneerheritageshoppe.com/knitslippers-wm.htm
so I wrote the company asking if the pattern is for sale. This was their response:

Thank you for your inquiry. Our slipper pattern is not available to the public at this time. However, we are working on making it available and hope to have that completed by the end of the year. The pattern will only be available in Kit format with a premium yarn and will be sold on our website. At some point we will be putting together a collection of our designs in book format and the slipper pattern will be included in that.
Please check back on our website in the pattern kit department for updated kit availability. Our pattern will be specifically noted as ours.
Thank you for your interest in our patterns, please come again.


Anyway, the slipper does look like a lot like the checkerboard slipper pattern posted at this website, with maybe some tweeking:

I'll probably get the kit when it comes out.

Hope this helps,
Jan

Oh that's great news...I'll be looking for this pattern myself. Hopefully they'll get this into pattern form soon. I really like these slippers.

Thanks for letting me know what they said.
