They're great looking slippers and in a very good looking color combination. It's fun to treat yourself to something handmade and wonderful. Enjoy!

Love 'em! Nice contrasting ties, too! Good idea!

My daughter has a "no shoes" policy at her home...so she knitted up a boatload of these slippers and puts them in a basket by the door. She makes big, med and small!

Your pattern design is very popular!

Looks great on your foot, Alayna. Can you tell me how you sewed them up? I am making what I think is a similar slipper (Grandma pattern)....and can't figure out how to finish.

Here's what I made so far:


and on my foot:



Now, if I sew up the back, I seem to end up with a lump on the foot bottom.
Can you tell what I might be doing wrong? If not, I'll post in a separate thread.

woodi, what i did was sew the two sides together, perhaps when you are sewing you are sewing too much of the slipper together? but honestly a small lump is ok because its at the back. also sew inside out, then turn it right side out when your done so you dont see the seem.
hope that helps

Thanks!....Do I stretch it when I sew it? My foot seems to hang off the end a bit. Or perhaps I should knit a few extra rows....? I already used the greatest number of stitches the pattern indicated, making it a larger size....and my foot size is only 7 to 8, not terribly large.

I like your pattern. Where did you get it? can you share?

It might be the yarn your using, but generally slippers tend to stretch as you wear them. Here is the link to the pattern for the slippers i knitted, if you need any help let me know, and goodluck with your slippers. Keep in mind practise makes perfect, the more you knit a pattern the more you figure out what works best.
