Bev's Loomed Kids' Slippers

CindWoods Looms has Child Slipper looms available for $10.  For the model I used ITA's Mitten Loom

TOP OF SLIPPER
Use 3 strands of yarn held together.
E-wrap all of the pegs 4 times (yup- 4 times) around.
Lift 3 wraps over 1 wrap. This forms a nice 'brim' for your slipper.
Now e-wrap and knit 7 rows.


Making the Heel (the numbers represent the pegs)
E-Wrap just 10 pegs and knit off and hook the yarn around the tack.)
Knit off those 10 pegs. (1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10.)
Now E-Wrap backwards but only on 8 pegs (starting with peg number 9.8.7.6.5.4.3.2) Knit those off.
E-Wrap forwards again on 6 pegs (3.4.5.6.7.8.) Knit those off
E-Wrap backwards on 4 pegs (7.6.5.4.)
E-Wrap forwards on 2 pegs (5.6.)

So now you need to increase the numbers of pegs you are working on again, increasing by twos to widen the heel out again, (just as you decreased by twos before). Wrap peg number Words of advice from Cynthia who sells this loom "I have found that if you wrap and pick the first peg added, and then go the other direction to finish to row, it is tight but doesn’t leave a hole."

I (Bev) still get a small hole but you can just stitch those shut later.

Now E-Wrap pegs 7 (knit that off) then 6.5.4. knit off.
E-Wrap pegs (3.4.5.6.7.8.) knit off.
E-Wrap pegs (9.8.7.6.5.4.3.2.) Knit off.
E-Wrap pegs (1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10.) Knit off. You have made the heel!


Just like my baby booties pattern.

FOOT
E-wrap and knit 12-15 more rows depending on how long you want those slippers. Then gather-remove them from the loom. Pull tightly and weave yarn under several stitches on the inside of the slipper.

12 rows makes them about 5.5" long. The slippers will stretch and grow with the child too, so that's always a plus.

I have been adding a ribbon or a crocheted chain at the base of the 'brim' so they can be tied on little feet. I crocheted a chain about 16" long and then sc all the way back down the chain.
