~ Hi everyone ~

I've recently found Instagram and I am enjoying it so much more than blogging.  I take a picture, fill in a few words and post.  Quick and easy.  It will be my new home now.  My blog will stay open in case anyone needs one of the patterns.  

If you would like to follow me - here is the link:


If I have a new pattern, then I will post it here on my blog - other than that, I think I'm out of here.  

I have had a great 7 years of blogging, and have met and made many lovely friends through our love of crochet.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your support and friendship.  

Until next time ~ 

Debi Y.  :)

p.s. the 'guardian grandmas' will still be active.  Just email me for my address at dlyrs@juno.com

~ comfy slippers ~


Materials:
- 3 oz. 4-ply worsted weight acrylic (these slippers were crocheted with Bernat 'winter sky')
- small amount contrasting color 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- J hook

Size:  these are a size 7 - to make smaller or larger:  leave off or add dc rows on the back foot part before Row 21 - then work Row 21 as the last row.

Notes:
- I crochet tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- the ch 2 at the beginning of Rnds 1 through 11 do not count as a stitch

Directions:
Rnd 1:  Ch 3, work 12 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  (12 dc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as joining st, dc in next dc.  *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.  (18 dc)

Rnd 3:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as joining st, dc in next 2 dc.  *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.  

Rnd 4:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as joining st, dc in next 3 dc.  *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 3 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.

Rnds 5 - 11:  Ch 2, dc in same dc as joining st, dc in each dc around.  Join as before.

Row 12:  Ch 3, dc in next 21 dc.  Turn.  (22 dc)

Rows 13 - 20:  Ch 3, dc in each dc across.  Turn.

Row 21:  Ch 3, dc in next 7 dc, hdc in next dc, sc in next 4 dc, hdc in next dc, dc in last 8 dc.  End off leaving a long tail.  

Fold last row in half and matching stitches, whipstitch together.

With a contrasting color:  make a chain about 23" long - start in the front of the slipper and weave through the dc stitches, then weave through the dc's and ch 3's around the ankle of the slipper.  Put slipper on - pull a little tight - tie into a bow.
