There was a knit-along for Squares Slippers, and I know that we could easily crochet them, too!

Not so hard, right?  Plus, who says that they have to be done with plain squares?  Be creative!

So, who wants to join?

I haven't started yet, but I think that the first pair will be done in potholder stitch.  Just need to get my yarn colors picked out.

I've started mine! I picked some blueish homespun (it's missing the label) from my stash and I'm just using sc.  I have 3 squares done so far that are 9 sts wide by 9 rows.  I hope to finish them soon because I'm at my parents house for the break and my mom keeps the heat soooo  cold my toes are like ice!

Well...I have all my squares done but only one finished.  I took the easy route out and just did a simple single stitched square for my first pair and what have I learned?  The squares must be much bigger for an adult sized slipper!  Now I'll need to find me a six year old to give these too. *grin*

That's cool!  For the women and men sizes, the patterns calls for the squares to be 3 1/4" and 3 3/4" respectively.  Hopefully, your next pair will fit. Wink

Please let me know how they fair as slippers--warmness ratings, general feel, and so on.
