The winning pattern for August is the travel slippers.
And because I read the pattern all the way to end for once I know it also requires:
I couldn’t find anything about that specific yarn but the pattern does give a gauge. A regular worsted weight yarn with a J hook gave me the required 3 single crochet to 1-inch gauge. I found some Lion Brand Jeans Colors in the color Corduroy on clearance at JoAnn. Since I have no idea how big a skein of the Phentex yarn I grabbed two skeins.
I have a stash of buttons but I think I might do something different for the bow. Maybe some flowers made with crochet thread. I’ll have to see what looks good with the finished slippers.
These look fairly simple but the directions are pretty short so I think there will be some extrapolation on my part. It starts out with a sole that’s two identical pieces sewn together. Then the upper part and it’s all slip stitched together.
The Jeans yarn is super soft so these should be pretty comfy when they're done!
