  1. LOVE THESE!! I don’t see why these couldn’t be made larger for a walking child because of the Maryanne style. Like a slipper with something non slip added to the bottom! THEY ARE SO-O-O CUTE!!! THANK YOU

  2. These are toooo cute! I have two new granddaughters due in July and ATLEAST one of them is getting a pair!

  3. You are most welcome 🙂 If you have any other questions please just let me know – I try my best to respond as soon as I can. Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  4. Thank you so much for your prompt reply. So many designers just ignore you when you have questions.

  5. Hi Darlene, Yes the pattern is correct 🙂 I double checked it before I shared it but forgot to remove the note – the note was regarding the total number of stitches for the soles of the slippers. I’ve added them now for the first part of the pattern. Hope this helps, Rhondda

  6. Did you ever recheck Round 5 of the pattern for the 6 to 12 months size as you noted in your pattern? By the way a stitch count per row not just now and then would sure be helpful. Your pattern is so cute and am trying to make a pair for my great-granddaughter.

  7. These are definitely my favorite pattern. I want to make some for my future babies, and some to give away to all my friends!

  8. I’m glad you figured it out Rani! If I ever do not respond immediately for a question please feel free to email me via the contact form 🙂 I am a little behind on answering comments this week with the giveaway going on 🙂 Rhondda

  12. I love these, they are my favorite…going to make them tonight

  13. I believe I worked it out 🙂 I’ll see how it goes.. I was turning to work on the single crochet side and not the chain side of the fsc..

  14. Hi! Beautiful pattern you have created here! I’m trying to make some for my daughter. I’m normally pretty good with following patterns but I seem to be having a silly problem. I can’t work out where the first stitch is for R2 on the sole. My rows are starting and ending in all different places.. I must be reading it wrong. I hope this makes sense 🙂
    Any advice you can help me with?
    Thank you so much!

  15. I love how the stitching on the sides look like little hearts. I would love an adult pattern for this too!

  16. Beautiful little slippers!! Great instructions, and so quick and easy. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  17. Absolutely gorgeous! Fab colour choices too! Will definitely be trying these! Thanx for a great pattern 🙂
