Hello everyone! It has been a couple weeks since my last post. Things here have been a bit busy. I have been having some difficulty with my teeth so a trip to the oral surgeon was in order. I am ok and have been on antibiotic and a special mouth rinse. I will be having two teeth pulled shortly; the antibiotics have kicked in and I am feeling oh so much better!!
I have been working on a new pattern. Shown on the left are my Men's Slippers. They are done in a #6 super bulky weight yarn and a P hook. They work up quickly and with some simple color changes you can get a totally different look. Tested by my friend and fellow crocheter and new blogger Susanne of Stitchin Shishums. I would like to take the time to say "Thank you Susanne for all of your help with this pattern." All of the photos included in this post are being used with her permission.
This pattern is written in American Crochet Terms. I made these slippers to fit a size 10.5 man’s foot. They are easily adaptable to a larger size. Please read pattern in it’s entirety before beginning.
Designer Notes: Adjustments to make your slippers longer or wider are in bold parentheses. I have written this to fit an average width and a size 10.5 mens (US). If you have pattern questions please feel free to email me. You can find a contact form on the contact page!!
