Way back in 1996 I typed this pattern and drew a picture of the way they should look! This was for my newsletter called COUNTRY COTTAGE PENPALS, and on my pattern page called 'Homemade with Love"! I found the newsletter and took a photo of the page.
I have no idea where the slipper pattern originated, or anything. Likely it was on a scrap of paper in my moms patterns as she liked to knit too.
This photo of the page and the page are copyrighted to Beverly A. Qualheim. The pattern itself is not. I am thinking they will work for children if you use smaller knitting needles and sport weight yarn. I will work on that so we can get a photo.
