These slippers were made form a pattern in Erika Knight's Simple Crochet book. I just love her work - so stylish and creative. These slippers are very comfy and are a snap to make! They really are simple! ^_^ I made a few changes to these from the pattern, just to adjust the size. I used a rainbow variagated cotton yarn.

Those shoes look quite nice and welcoming.  I have thought about making a pair, but do they feel comfortable and warm on your feet?

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone! ^_^

In response to greenie's question, the slippers are very comfy and pretty warm too (though I'd imagine that wool slippers, especially felted ones, would be warmer). The best thing about the pattern is how simple and quick it is. This was my first crochet project, and it went pretty smoothly. I'd recommend it, for sure.

Here is a pic of my second pair. These are a going to be a gift, and I stuck to the exact pattern this time. I like the results better (I now know what changes I would like to make to the first pair too - like make the toes shorter). I think this colour is more appealing too - I like the way the variagated yarn made more random patterns this time.

Those look excellent!  I haven't been brave enough to try slippers yet, although I'm not sure why.  I have this weird idea that they must be hard.  I think it's leftover from years of attempting baby bootie patterns that didn't work out.  I may have to pick up a copy of that book!

I have this book too and I love the patterns-- I've made several pillows so far.  I haven't tried the slippers but you have inspired me!  They are definitely going on my "to make" list!
