Always on the look-out for the newest in slipper patterns, I had started a pair of Bulky Yarn Booties but they did not work out. The top was so small that my foot wouldn't go into them. Rip. (There's a lot of that going around here these days.) Back to my favourite slipper pattern - 19 Row Duffers. Two days and 38 rows later, a pair of felted slippers.
The yarn used and held double throughout, was wool I snatched from Gloria's great yarn give-away. A variegated brown wool, made in China! Sold at Wal Mart. Who knew? Since I have two balls more, I think another pair of slippers might happen soon. This time I might try the
Non Felted Slippers knitting them on larger needles and felting them.
With two exceptions, the Non Felted Slippers are identical to the 19 Row Duffers. The Non-Felted Slippers pattern is free while there is a small charge for the 19 Row Duffers pattern. The Non Felted slippers cover more of the instep, which might be more cozy. Oh - and a third exception is that they have 42 rows. Can I handle that? '84 over 2' does sound more impressive than '19 over 2'. If it happens that is.
