Awesome! And if I didn't have wood floors and a desperate need for arch support, I'd be making some right now.

Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.  I've started a pair for my step-mom for Christmas.  It'll be a great secret santa gift.  I'm making them with a K hook and Lion Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, just one strand.  They are turning out warm and soft. 

I need a house with a craft room!

Alrighty ladies, here is a pair of slippers that I have been working on the past few days. I have to rest my hands quite often (arthritis) so it is taking me much longer, but hey, I got one slipper done. This pair is for a friend of mine at work. I am actually making her two pairs.

I love this easy pattern!  My husband is house shoe junkie!  He's gone through so many pair because he wore them out...he'll even wear them out in public! ( he has absolutely no shame) Anywho, I tried this pattern out and it's so easy, but it takes me forever because it's difficult for me to crochet with two strands of yarn.  Plus, I'm using a size K hook because I don't own an L hook.  But the sizes came out just fine.  Here's pictures of my completed slippers.

and Lydia, I love your green slippers.  Those colors together are awesome.  How did you get four different colors together?  however you did it, it looks great!

I love Lydia for sharing this pattern!  I've decided to make several pairs of these as presents, who wants cold feet, right?  This is a pair I made for my great grandmother.  She loves pink, and I added some pom-poms to go on the back.  Sorry they are not modeled, but she has much smaller feet than I do.  Didn't wanna stretch them out.

that pair with the pom poms is frickin adorable. They look almost exactly like the ones my Nana used to make me.

Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!
I have attempted slippers from various patterns several times over the last few years, and was never satisfied enough with the outcome of the 1st one to bother making the second foot.
This pattern is perfect. Easy, fast, versatile, and pretty much goof proof.
I am now the proud owner of a very comfy pair of slippers, and my husband just picked out the colors he wants for his pair!
I used 2 strands of red heart super saver and a size K hook. I tried the Mary Jane style and did not prefer the finished slipper (1 slipper anyone?), so I kept going with the rounds to make a bootie. I did 14 rounds for the foot section, but started adding 1 decrease per round starting with round six (which created a very nice contoured fit around the foot), then 6 rows of 18 HDC before slipstitching the back of the heel/foot and finishing with a SC round. These fit my size 8 1/2 W foot perfectly and will be even better after a washing. This is a great pair of slippers!!! I am hooked (pun intended).

I do love these, but i keep having a problem with getting the positioning right... where is the magic circle supposed to lay? at my toes or below me feet?

Anyways, these are super cute, and I can't wait to figure out how to do it right. XD
