I have been looking for a pattern to make this type of slippers for quite a while now. I am glad I found this one! My grandmother used to buy slippers like this for me every year when I was a child. I never see them in stores anymore. Patons Moxie is discontinued, but there are a lot of other yarns on the market that are similar.

I often see Fun Fur or other fuzzy type yarn on sale and wondered what you would use it for, since I wasn't interested in using it for a scarf. This pattern is a perfect use for it, and very practical, too, since everybody can use a pair of slippers.

I was looking for a pattern to use up that novelty yarn I have. Here it is! I am always looking to make slippers since I have small feet and so many store bought slippers do not fit well. This pattern is simple and should knit up fast. You don't have boring slippers with this pattern. I also do a lot of charity knitting and the ladies in the rest homes will love these. Thank you!

One of my favorite slipper patterns. I've made pairs for myself and both my daughters. each pair was a different color, and we all have small feet, so I shortened the length a little. I didn't use the same yarn the pattern calls for, just used a similar type of yarn in a brand that was available where I lived. Very warm for the winter.

I am going to do this. I wear slippers all the time in the house and this is just perfect for those cool days! It looks like a really easy pattern, too. It looks like I will have to find another yarn to make it from, but that shouldn't be too hard.

Fuzzy faux fur no longer available.

We could probably substitute another fake fur yarn. Several brands make similar ones.
