Moose Tracks Retro Slippers
Sorry it took so long for me to get back with instructions for this slipper. The pattern I use was actually paid for but this pattern is very almost identical. I think the pattern I use has a few less garter stitch rows and a few more rib rows--you can decide for yourself; it is not critical and could be personal preference I suppose. These slippers are quite stretchy, so I recommend going smaller rather than larger when measuring to your foot.

This is a fun pattern that you can stylize any way that pleases you. The "Moose Tracks" are my own design for my son-in-law's b'day. I wanted to man them up a wee bit therefore the tab and button. Since the first photo, I added a crochet border on the top and whip stitch around the "buckle." Each slipper takes me about 1 1/2 hours to finish and some for the decorative effects. I use nice acrylic, double stranded, so they are cozy and easy care to give as gifts.

To make the button tab:

CO 8st (double strand) (CO more or less to suite your slipper)
Row 1 k all st
Row 2 k2, yo, k2tog, k to end
Row 3 k all st
Row 4 BO loosely

Cheers!

Thank you so much for posting the link to the slippers. Hate to be a nudge, but where did the pattern that you bought come from? If it's still available, I'd like to purchase it.

Thanks!

I read this post because I thought that it would be about moose and I got really excited (in case you can't tell, I like moose).

But I'm still excited even though the post isn't about moose because I can't wait to try out these slippers! I have been looking for a pattern like this for ages!!

Thanks!
Rebecca
