Slippers - Felting Question
I am new to felting and have just made some slippers which I have not felted yet. This particular pattern is crocheted. Most of the crocheted and knitting patterns I have seen have you making one full slipper and then another sole which you attach to the full slipper to make a double sole. You then tack the two soles together with loose back stitches before you felt.
If you figured out a pattern that would work for your own foot, is there any reason why you could not make the sole double in the first place and then start the top with one strand of yarn as usual? Or would it not felt the same......(the top would be toast before the bottom is felted enough)? Obviously the sole would use a smaller needle than the top. I plan on figuring out my own pattern and realize the stitch count would have to be adjusted, etc. Hope I have made sense with this question. I wanted to ask before I spend a bunch of time and/or waste of yarn figuring it out. Thanks.
