Did you have a pair of slippers that your grandma made you sometime in the 60s? Chunky, usually made of washable acrylic yarn and with an easy garter stitch pattern…
They are back in vogue in a retro kinda way. A friend of mine showed me a pair her mother-in-law had made and said her kids were nostalgic for them…she wondered if I could re-create the slippers.
It took about three minutes to find dozens of patterns on-line! And in about an hour I made a sample slipper to show her, using up left-over yarn.I found instructions and a youtube video by someone called Crafty Patti in case you want to take a trip down memory lane, make a pair and keep your feet warm in the winter. I’m going to make myself a pair and I just might re-create the hot pink pair Grandma made me — complete with pom-poms!
