During the winter months I always wear slippers around the house. My normal slippers have a sturdy bottom to them and sometimes I think they are almost like a shoe. So I knitted these slippers (several months ago) to be my comfy slippers in the evening when I'm just sitting around.
I used a free Drops pattern. I soon discovered that it wasn't quite what I thought it was . The slippers had a seam going down the middle of the bottom of the foot. I didn't want that. After looking around, I discovered that most slippers are that way.
I was thinking it was more like a sock. So I ripped some of it out and made it like a sock. I was able to use an infant sized pattern for my double stranded worsted yarn. It worked perfectly. I did end up making it a little large, but it still works.
