http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Knitting-Pattern-Bunny-Slippers-Easter-sz-1-4-/180653710697

I seen this on ebay to make these bunny slippers.  but the seller isnt selling the magazine, only a reproduction of the original pattern.  In the description the seller wrote:

This pattern was originally printed October 28, 1957. It was NOT copyrighted and became part of the public domain upon its publication, October 28, 1957.

Seeing the pattern is part of the public domain, I'm hoping that someone knows where I can find the pattern for free.  Im not trying to be cheap or anything, but when patterns are part of public domain, i'm a little offended when people make reproductions of the patterns and sell them instead of sharing them for free.  After all they are part of the public domain and ive seen lots of older patterns that are public domain being offered fro free all over the internet.  Anyways, if someone knows where this public domain pattern can be found for free, or has a copy of the original magazine I would love to have the pattern.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

You should join Ravelry! It's the fastest and easiest way to find patterns for yarn-works. I found this free knitting pattern from Woodvale Knits that looks quite similar to what you're looking for, especially when you go look at the other projects made with that pattern. And here's the direct link to the pattern.

Yeah, i seen that version and have it saved to my computer.  I was kinda hoping to find the one in the picture.  As I had a pair like it as a wee child that a very old realitve made me.  I wish she was still alive so she could give met he pattern, but sadly she passed away many moons ago.  The sides were taller and the toe part wasnt sewn closed.  Thanks for the link anyways though.

You should check out the hopsalots pattern by Tiny Owl Knits on Ravelry. They're adorable.

They look like granny slippers with ears, eyes and a nose sewn to them to me.

A basic granny slipper pattern can be found here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aunt-maggies-slippers. A bunny ear pattern can be found here http://www.babycenter.com/0_knitting-pattern-bunny-beanie_1445260.bc You don't need a designated pattern if you're willing to put two together.

You should join Ravelry, it's awesome!

to me they look like TV slippers with bunny ears sewn on. You could get a pattern for the ears from any stuffed animal pattern if you can't figure it out yourself. There is a free pattern for TV slippers at http://www.freevintageknitting.com  then click on slippers
