I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Slippers Allure for Moi!

I guess you have been impatiently waiting for the results of my slipper making. I really like the warmth that it comes from wearing them. I am glad I decided for two strands.

The slippers are finished and as I was sharing with you the other day, I used two kinds of materials. This is done in double strands of Red Heart Yarn. The Cuff is made with one strand of Red Heart and one strand of Patons Allure Yarn.

The laces were a growing experience as you can see, I finally decided to keep the laces at the end. The tassel changed when I finished the second Slipper. They are warm and cushy , which is what I wanted to begin with.

The cuffs have such an exquisite feel to the touch, it is ribbed as ribbed as crochet gets by working on Back loops, so it does have some stretch quality to it. The combination of Red Red Heart and Garnet Patons Allure yarn.

This will be a great pattern to make a felted slipper, if wool was used instead of acrylic. You could probably use a bigger hook, this one called for an I Hook. Here you have the end result.

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
