My mom has always made us slippers, ever since I was little. I love getting them and I've made a few pairs for others myself. I am posting the pattern on Ravelry for all to enjoy. I love to embellish these little cuties with ribbons, bows, pompoms and even jingle bells for the younger folks. Color combinations are endless and this pattern is so quick and easy, you could make everyone you know a pair and still want to make more. Enjoy!

For many of us, the mere mention of leg warmers conjures up vivid images of ripped sweatshirts and really big hair. Having grown up in the eighties, I love Olivia Newton John as much as the next person, but that doesn't necessarily mean I want "Let's Get Physical" to be my theme song for 2010. However, I'm not so curmudgeonly that I can't appreciate new takes on old trends. So, instead of acrylic and rainbow stripes, these 21st century leg warmers are super soft merino and naturally subtle colors.

Note: The text of this pattern is based on what I remember from the pairs of slippers my grandmother made for us when we were children. I have had so many requests for a written version of the design that I eventually captured it on paper to share with everyone who is interested.

I kept these slippers pretty simple, but they'd also be really cute modified for a button or decorated with a knit flower. I hope you have as much fun knitting these as I did designing them! Gauge 5 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch Finished Size
