Granny’s Knitted Slippers

By Eydie Wight

Materials: 4 ply worsted weight yarn (2 skeins)
size 5mm knitting needles
tapestry needle or crochet hook

Size: Pattern fits a 9-10 foot. For each size larger cast on 4 more stitches. Subtract 4 for each size smaller. Gauge is 4 sts. to the inch. The slippers are stretchy and look small and a bit misshapen until they are put on the foot!
