FINISHED SLIPPERS. Sizes 6, 8, & 10
My slipper pattern is a modified version of the ‘Slippers for Her’ pattern found here: https://www.yarnspirations.com/red-heart-slippers-for-her/RHK0127-021153M.html.
I didn’t like the way the eyelets went all the way to the sole of the original slipper pattern – so, I shortened them up in the slippers I made. And I didn’t care for the knitted flower trim of the original pattern either … so I cut those entirely, and opted for an embroidered flower design instead. I also used a sturdier type of yarn, since I made my slippers for the Fall – Spring months when more warmth is called for on the feet.
These slippers will be going into my 2019 Bazaar cache. Selling for $8/pr (small/medium) & $10/pr (large).
NOTATIONS: If making my design, use Caron brand worsted instead of Red Heart With Love yarn.
ALSO make these modifications in the body of the slippers:
Row 11: Increase before & after markers.
Row 13: Increase before & after markers.
Row 15: Increase before markers (55 sts/61 sts/69 sts)
Rows 16 thru 22: Work in stockinette st.
Row 23: BO loosely. Leave a long tail to sew up the sole.
BEFORE SEWING BACK & SOLE: Embroider the rose flower design on slipper uppers, tying off or weaving in ends as you wish:
