Awesome, daizyduke!  Do you have a picture?  Yeah, I found the same thing about stretching and made an edit to the pattern on my blog.

I will post a picture as soon as I wash them, probably this weekend.

These are the slippers my Grandma used to make for everyone in the family, every Christmas and sometimes birthdays, too.  snip
They are cuter on feet than flat, though:

Love these- here's my version in Patons SWS.  one finished, one still at the sewing phase.  I'm going to make a bunch more!

Those are GREAT!  Love that yarn choice - never thought of using something like SWS.  Never thought of using a stripey yarn.  I'll have to try it!

Wow - this brings back memories of the slippers my one grandma used to make for everyone. She's been gone for several years now (passed away a few months short of 90) but she managed to instill her love of yarn and knitting in me a long time ago.  I will have to see if I can carry on the slipper thing - I have plenty of time for Christmas this year!   Cheesy

Thanks for the pattern and the memories!!!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

I finally took a picture of the slippers. They are made with Caron Simply Soft Shadows.

Wow, my grandma used to crochet slippers like this when I was a kiddy - we'd get a new pair every Christmas! They were so warm and comforting. I like the ribbing on the foot and toe of the slipper - does it keep the slipper from accidentally slipping off the foot while walking around? My grandma's slippers didn't have any ribbing or elastic at all.

I just checked back here--somehow I missed your photo, daizyduke.  Very nice!  I need to try multicolored yarn more with these. 

For Christmas, I'm planning to make my 4-yr-old nephew a MONSTER version of these!

I love this pattern~!  It must have been pretty common for grandma era though... I found mine online like 2 years ago.  Cheesy

Here's my versions:
