A Victorian Potpourri for Bed & Bath: Slumber Slippers

The latest design in this series is now available–a cute, adaptable crocheted slipper pattern that is sure to be a favourite with young and old!

These Slumber Slippers are adapted from an 1888 Victorian design, re-designed to be made with any yarn and in any size.  Directions are included so that you can easily make a pair using any weight of yarn with the appropriate hook, from baby to mens large size!

I made Women’s Medium size, with chunky weight acrylic yarn and a 6.5mm hook.  It used about 70g of the main colour (green) and 30g of the contrast colour (pink).  The second pair of slippers is a 1-3 year size, and used about 50g of yarn.  There are lots of photos so making these slippers is easy!  If you find any errors or need any help please write to me on the comment form or write a message on Facebook or Ravelry and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can–I check my mail boxes at least once a day.
