I just finished these fun Holiday Slippers for a charity craft fair I'm participating in. They are from the Patons Pattern Book Next Steps Four - Socks and Slippers. I used some bulky yarn from my sister-in-law Wendy's stash which she gave me this summer. I was amazed - she gave me so much beautiful wool! This is Katia Himalya, a bulky wool blend. I adjusted the pattern by adding a rolled hem rib at the top and the red pom-pom. The rib goes like this: picked up 36 stitches around edge and K1,P1 for 3 rows then K every st for 3 rows, bind off.
