Slipper Pattern

As requested, I am posting the pattern for the slippers on the last yarn along. It was my Mother's pattern, not my Grandmother's like I said. She made these for us all the time.
When I make these slippers for myself, I find that the ball of the foot wears easily so I continue with the first part of the instructions, skip the ribbing, and then decrease the last three rows. It looks kind of neat and I find that they wear better.

The kids slippers don't wear poorly in the original pattern so feel free to use it. Athena wears size 13 shoes and I make the teen size as printed for her. If you want the slippers to last FOREVER then use that old fashioned plasticy Phentex. :)

*Note the old fashioned typewriter I used to copy this pattern way back when? Even this makes this pattern more endearing to me.

Thank you so much for posting this, I can't wait to get started.
I love that it's posted in the typewriter type. My grandfather typed all of my grandmother's recipes for her, they are now mine and I dearly treasure them. Sending warm spring thoughts your way.

Thank you for posting this and for letting me know! I'll have to copy it down and give them a try. Hopefully I won't need slippers for a while, though... ;-)
