The worsed weight Phentex is a #4. There's no gauge listed. No hook given. The original hook must have come with the kit. I tried the pattern with doubled worsted weight. They're gigantic. Going to try a single strand of worsted weight next and see what I can come up with. Does anybody have any clue what yarn and hook would be used for this? Would love to post this online. Ravelry doesn't have the crochet version and I'm not finding it anywhere else. I believe, from what I've read online, that the Phentex company, unregistered the kit in 1984 and this would make the pattern public domain?
did you find a pattern for the crocheted minute slippers? if so could you tell me where I can find/purchase it? thanks
