10-22-2008 Crochet Christmas "Fix-ins"

I've been making a few things for Christmas the last couple of days. Here is a picture of some slippers I've made for a couple ladies and a washcloth that I will put in a gift basket. I really like the color design on the washcloth. I made a pair of slippers for a guy too but I can't find them! Must be the old-timers syndrome catching up with me! Anyway here is the link to the slippers pattern --> http://www.knitting-crochet.com/crochet/slisoc.html . I have used this pattern for many years and am very happy with it. These slippers I modified somewhat by not putting a cuff on them. I hope you enjoy. The washcloth is just made out of sc. I actually bought a pattern only to find out it was chain 31 and then every row was sc 30!


  1. Nice start on Christmas presents!

    I've been looking for a good slipper pattern for myself - I may give this one a try - thanks!

  2. I've been using this pattern since the late 70s. I about wore out my book and was happy to see it show up on the Internet. It is super easy and every one I've gifted with a pair has requested more. When I don't know if I can get a full pair out of them I just omit the cuff by decreasing the number of chains after I finish the rounds of 25 sc. Good luck with yours.
