I’m so excited about this project. Faith, my friend and one of our most loyal and fantastic Darn Good Yarners came up with this cool pattern which is just in time for the fall season! Hoo-rah! (Oh I sounded very Air Force for a second!)

Don’t let your imagination cease with this pattern. These great slippers are great for travel as well as around the house! I am making a pair for myself for when I fly on planes because they roll up into my purse and when I’m on the plane I can slip off my shoes and stick these puppies on….ah bliss!

You can also easily make a couple pairs for when you have guests to your house. Knit them up a pair to wear around your place and then let them take them home to enjoy and remember their time with you!

This pattern calls for an old t-shirt or two and some Darn Good Yarn (come on you know you have that one with the stain on it that really needs to be re-purposed). You can use either two balls of the premium recycled silk yarn or two balls of the slightly unrefined silk both found by click on the following pictures:

The pattern is very easy to follow and would be suitable for a beginner too. The pattern is $3.99, an absolute steal for the versatility of the slippers!

    Oh, how lovely! What you’re missing is what skills are necessary — does it use straight needles, circulars or dpn? Can you make them higher up on the ankle like winter weight slippers or are they fitting more like peds?

    • nicole says:

      The fit more like peds and you’re going to use straight needles (ah I am a sucker for easy patterns:) I need stuff that doesn’t get the “Jersey” side of me to come out! ). I hope that helps!

    CUTE pattern! I may have to make a few pair for my houseguests.. :)

    Oh, also, do I have to cut up the t-shirts to make recycled yarn out of it, and if so can I use regular cotton yarn? Does it need to be stretchy or will plain woven cotton work? Not sure what I’d use.

    • nicole says:

      You could use cotton yarn but it would have to be pretty chunky. The T-shirt gives it the slipper a decent amount of “umph” and structure. Stretchy is what I would recommend because I have not experimented with plain woven cotton. I don’t know if you have a thrift store by you where you can sometimes find shirts for under $1. Usually these stores are part of a non-profit so you’re getting your crafting supplies while donating to a good cause. Something to consider!

        It’s not about the money. With six people in the family, I’ve got plenty of t-shirts. I just lack the patience to cut them up and yarnize them.
