Slipper Progress...

Here's the progress I've made on the slippers marathon I've had going on. I need to make some more "big men's slippers" and maybe another pair or 2 of women's just to be sure I have enough. Here's the basic pattern I used. The "big men's slippers" are from a modification I did to the original pattern.  Thanks for looking. Y'all have a great week...



Big Men's Slippers



To make a "Big Men's" pair, I used almost the full skein of rh ss plus a large amount of the one pounder. 

Big Men's Slippers  
Yarn required--get 2 skeins worsted weight (7 -  8 oz size). You will crochet using 2 strands of yarn.
Use a J Hook


INSTRUCTIONS
Rnd 1: Ch 2, work 5 sc into 2nd ch from hook to form a circle. Mark last st of this rnd with a pin, then move pin to mark the end of each succeeding rnd. 


Rnd 2: Work 3 sc into each sc around: you should have 15 sc. 


Rnd 3: * 2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 2 sc, rep from * around:  20 Sc.


Rnd 4: * 2 sc in first sc, sc in each of the next 3sc, rep from * around 25 sc. 


Rnd 5 *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of the next 4sc, rep from * around. 30 sc.
Work even on 30 sc for 16 rnds more. Do not finish off.


Back: Ch 13.
Row 1: Using both loops, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of next  12; sc in each of next 30 sc; sc in each ch on opposite side of beg ch; ch 1, turn. 
You should have 54 sc.


From now on, sc in the back loop (loop away from you) of each sc.


Rows 2-14:  Sc in back loop of each sc across; ch 1, turn.


Dec Row 1: Sc in each of next 24 sc, dec over next 2 sts as follows: draw up a loop in each of the next 2 sts: 3 loops on hook, YO and pull through all 3 loops on hook, work 2 sc, dec as before over next 2 sts, sc in each of next 24 sc, ch 1, turn. 


Dec Row 2: Sc in each of next 23 sc, dec over next 2 sts as follows: draw up a loop in each of the next 2 sts: 3 loops on hook, YO and pull through all 3 loops on hook, work 2 sc, dec as before over next 2 sts, sc in each of next 23 sc, ch 1, turn. 


Dec Row 3: Sc in each of next 22 sc, dec over next 2 sts as follows: draw up a loop in each of the next 2 sts: 3 loops on hook, YO and pull through all 3 loops on hook, work 2 sc, dec as before over next 2 sts, sc in each of next 22 sc, ch 1, turn. 


Finishing: Fold back section in half, carefully matching sts. Sl St inside loops of sides tog. Finish off  
 
If you see any problems with this pattern let me know. These are great slippers. They are warm and long lasting because of the double yarn thickness. Have a great day...


Slipper Marathon Continues...


I've made 3+ pairs of slippers in the last couple of days. Tomorrow I'll finish up the 4th pair and post pictures for you. I've "super-sized" the pattern for big men so if any of you would like the modifications to the pattern just ask me and I'll post the modifications for you. I've been able to use up several partial skeins of yarn so that's really good. Just need to use up some more so I can see what I have. Here's the pattern I'm using. It's the one I always use so some of you have probably already seen it. Today I was digging through my stack of patterns and I found the book it was published in. Boy was that book tattered from being used so much! Thanks for visiting and hugs...
