I've searched the forums and can only find a pattern for what I need that is crocheted.  Does anyone out there have a knitting pattern for booties/slippers/slipper socks for toddler sized feet (or heck, I'd even like some for grown up feet if you have it too) that does not use DPNs?  I'm cool with circulars, but my experience with them is that they don't work well with wee-sized projects. 

I'd like to find something my little guy can run around the house in and keep his tootsies warm, but since they're just for bumming around, I'd like to steer clear of intarsia, cables, and all that fancy stuff.  I had a pattern for baby booties that used plain old straight needles and knit up in about 30 minutes per bootie (for newborn size, though) and cannot find it anywhere!  I figure even with a basic bootie pattern that is sized correctly, all I need to do is slap some puff paint on the bottom and he's got slipper socks.

Any help is appreciated!  If you have a pattern that is not published online and you'd rather not share it in the forum, feel free to PM me.  Thanks  Smiley

http://www.littleturtleknits.com/  Used to have an AMAZING felted slipper pattern that went from baby size to adult.  SUPER easy and no DPNs ~ except for the applied I-cord.  I don't see that exact pattern anymore ~ maybe email her?  But, the stripey slipper pattern looks identical with the exception of the felting and stripes Wink  The pattern was very well written and she's a dear to work with.

Forgot to mention, for any toddler (or even adult) slipper pattern, I HIGHLY recommend using puff fabric paint on the bottoms unless you only have carpet.  Knits on toes is WWAAAAYYYY slippery Wink

Ooooohhh...great tip!  I need to make slippers for myself at work and I can see myself slipping now on the shiny hardwood floor.

With Saarjte's booties, if you use a bigger gauge, it'll become a bigger bootie. Smiley http://saartjeknits.nl/ (it's on the right).

Like this?
this one is finished on dpn's, but you could easily continue it flat and seam it. just pull yarn through remaining sts, pull closed and sew up.
similar in other sizes http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/maggieslippers.html

Jints!  That first pattern you listed looks exactly like the one I did before- brilliant!  All the patterns posted look fantastic & simple, thanks everyone for helping me out.

Caclark4- just so you know I had to cover my mouth when I saw your avatar because I burst out laughing and was afraid of waking everyone in the house up.  That is awesome.
