    Joan G - This is the pattern I used. It goes fast - I made 3 slippers today.
    I'll finish my pair tomorrow.

    Directions are given for small size (ages 8 - 12). Changes for Medium size (Older children and women) are in parentheses. (Even tho it say women I found they also fit men.)

    2 (3) ounces of any color 4 ply knitting worsted
    1 pair 10-1/2 knitting needles
    3/4 yard elastic thread

    Gauge 7 sts = 2 inches

    Start at back. Measure off 24 inches of yarn and cast on 22 sts.
    Next row: K9, *k in front and back of next st - one st increased.
    Repeat from * 3 times more: k remaining 9 sts = 26 sts
    Now work as follows: 1st row - wrong side: k8, *p1, k8
    Repeat from * once.
    2nd row - K across.
    Repeat first and 2 nd rows until length is 6 (7) inches, ending with 2nd row.
    Next row - Increase in first st, k across = 27 sts

    Toe: 1st row - K1 * p1, k1. Repeat from * across.
    2nd row - P1, *k1, p1. Repeat from * across.
    Repeat these 2 rows until total length is 7-1/2 (8-1/2) inches.
    Leaving a 12 inch length, break off. Thread this length into a needle and draw through remaining sts on knitting needle. Pull up tightly and fasten securely. Starting at toe, sew long edges together for 3-1/2 inches to form front seam. Sew back seam.

    Rosette - Cast on 20 sts.
    1st row - Increase in each st across = 40 sts
    Bind off. Yarn will curl as you bind off.
    Twist into a rosette and sew to front of slipper.

    Draw elastic thread through entire top edge, holding it in to desired size. Fasten securely.

    Make other slipper in same way.

    Hi Joan

    And emoticon to the Classy 70 Team. I jumped on over here to your Spark Page and after reading it, I think you are just my kind of lady. I love family and such too. I would also love to be able to eat the vegan diet but I'm afraid I'd starve. I don't know much about it but my 50 yo daughter who had cancer and is now cancer free for a year went on a vegan diet after she was released from the cancer. She is doind GREAT. This is getting too long. We'll talk later.


    Your team co-leader Jen
