About the Slipper Mods

Through the Woods
A few knitters have contacted me through Ravelry re: row-by-row instructions for the child version of the non-felted slippers.  So I decided to publish my changes here on the blog so I can re-direct other knitters here.  You will still need to print off the original pattern.

Please remember this is NOT my pattern.  This great slipper pattern comes from Yuko Nakamura who has kindly provided her work for free here on Ravelry (it's a PDF file you can open and store on your computer or save in your Rav library).

Hope this helps out anyone who wants to make a child-sized version. I'll be back with a proper post soon.

  1. Thank YOU!!! I've been trying to figure this one out for my kids and I thoroughly appreciate you posting this. Are you thinking about adding it to Ravelry? Honestly I think this is the easiest and most adorable slippers I have ever seen :) BTW age child are the slippers for? Gen, Montreal

  2. So pleased this helped you! I do have a link from Ravelry to here, but I don't want to take away from the original poster of the pattern. By the way, my son was 9 when I first made the pattern, so I'm guessing its for 8-10 years (depending on size of child's foot).
