They are called crocodile boots but I think they will go better here if I rename them if I can ever figure out the pattern
The ones I am making are more along the color scheme of the baby size booties.
I have this pattern also. Like you I just need to figure it out :(
I am giving up, It just doesn't work out right no mater how I have tried to change needle size or stitching. I am going to try to make a different boot with the shell cuff or as they call it the crocodile cuff. See if I can get it that way.
I also found another cool sock boot. I will see if I can find it to post.
and the pattern is http://megan.cc/Soccasins
Haven't tried this one yet but they look like they could be real warm and cute with a variation of yarns.
Will do, they are sort of on the back burner just now as I am working on my very first quilt. ewwww.... scary but I am having so much fun. Never realized how much planning goes into each quilt.
Oh I don't think a quilt will be a problem for you :)
You do have to be part engineer with all the planning, cutting, sizing.
my Mother made a lot of crochet slippers. She lined the soles with scraps of trousers.. This in Europe
Here she used blue jeans for the bottoms.
Have you figured out the slippers yet, fishknees? If someone can figure it out I will send them the yarn and pay them to make me a pair.
Can someone share the pattern in the first picture?There very nice and I love a challage.
I will share it with you. Have to go find it again but you must promise if you figure it out. Please make me a pair. I can email it to you as it is in PDF format so I need your email addy. Dmail it to me if you want the pattern

These are really cute slippers. I like the idea of lining them with old material!
