CROCHET BALLET SLIPPERS

Reactions: 

My daughter wanted some ballet type slippers. I looked at several patterns online and did not like any of them. For one thing, they didn't seem to have much substance for slippers. I made up my own pattern. I started with my trusty Slipper Sock  pattern and developed it from there.


**You are welcome to use the pattern, and even sell any slippers you make from it, but please don't sell the pattern and pass it off as your own. Kindly link back to this post if you use it.**
**If you see a mistake in the pattern or something is not clear, email me and I will try to help.**

  1. very cute, they look so chic and comfy, wish I could knit like that. I'm just a beginner for now, wish I would have paid more attention when my grandmother was teaching me. Oh well, live and learn. Now I have to rely on those self taught DVD's which are not very helpful.

    Hope you have a great week!

  5. Really cute. I am going to try this pattern. I think I can handle it. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I use an Olympus small little camera. It takes great pictures but it's small and pink and can fit into my bag.
