I've looked around the site, and I haven't found any slipper patterns like the ones I want... so I'm gonna throw this out there.

You know those knitted slippers that grandmas make? The ones made with scratchy yarn that actually ends up being really comfortable, and half the time they're super-ugly, cuz grandmas love making them checkered, and they're always just the right size, even if they look too small?

I told my boyfriend to ask his Grandma already how to make them, but maybe you guys can help me sooner. I really need a new pair of slippers. I know they're garter stitched... or at least I assume. It looks like it.

Thanks!

Yay! I had Googled this, and none of the slippers I found looked right, but all three of those are exactly what I had in mind! Now I just gotta figure out which pattern I actually want to try Smiley
Thanks!

My grandma used to make the phentex ones. I tried awhile ago, and it just hurt my hands too much to make them. Boo!
