I discovered these in my father's posession last Sunday. They seem to be very sturdy slippers, almost shoelike. I think they're positively lovely if not too worn out. I've decided I want to knit a pair for myself, but with a simple striped pattern as I'm not very experienced with knitting as of yet.

So, I've determined that they're essentially three seperate pieces plus the leather sole which is sewn on afterwards. However, I have no idea how to knit rounded edges like the toe. Can anyone offer me any tutorials or ideas? Thank you very much for your help.

Aha! Those are perfect! Thank you! I guess they're popular or something, haha, I've been living under a very trendy rock all these years.

Thanks for the help Smiley

I bought a very similar pattern from Afghans for Afghans (http://www.afghansforafghans.org/patterns.html) no leather bottoms but you might be able to put them on.

There is a book called Ethnic Socks & Stockings by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, that is mainly those type of socks - there are many different patterns of differing complexity.  The book itself is a little expensive, but you could probably get it from your library or through interlibrary loan.
