A month or so ago my mom gave me a pattern she had recently found for these very comfy slippers. She says she thinks she learned to make them in home ec. in junior high school and is not sure where the pattern originated. I knitted up a pair in a day and delivered them to her as a surprise the next day. I was fortunate to get lots of the chunky yarn the pattern calls for at 75% off from a local craft store. Always love a deal like that! Now to knit some for my husband and me. Finding a slipper he likes is difficult at best and he liked these!
