Has anyone found any really good slipper patterns.  I'm thinking of knitting myself some to go with those cold, college dorm room floors.  Any ideas?? Wink

I like the fuzzy feet from Knitty. They knit up pretty quickly.

Ever feel that you *have* to use a signature?

these are very easy fun to make - no shaping, just a bunch of garter stitch squares sewn together:

They're a great way to use up small amounts of yarn. They aren't super warm, though.  And I'd recommend knitting them on smaller needles than you would normally use for the yarn, so that the fabric is tighter and harder-wearing.

I'm a big fan of the Fiber Trends felted clogs (patt# AC-33x)

 and Mary Janes (patt# AC-14)

The patterns aren't free, but they are pretty cheap. Here in Canada I pay about 6$ each.  They'd be less in the US. You can order them on line from various sources or you can buy them from many yarn stores.

I'll second the vote for Fuzzy Feet. They're a great introduction to felting AND knitting socks.  You can do them conservative in all wool, or spice them up with eyelash yarn for a wackier effect. This website really gives you a sense of the versatility of the pattern:

Thanks the info.  I like the ones from knitty.com, I'll try them sometime soon.  I've never felted anything before so I'll give it a try.
