Looking for a knit popcorn stitch or puff type stitch slipper pattern
 
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

I found a website that has the slipper pattern I'm looking for...it's called Pioneer Heritage Shoppe...I don't know if I can post a picture here or not...but if someone can look at this website and knows about this pattern, please let me know. I'll be happy to pay for it.

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 :-)

Sandy

Oh, I live in California too. I'm in Seal Beach, were are you?

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.
