Little Duffers is the toddler and child version of the Duffers slipper pattern.
Starting at a finished foot length of just 4″/10 cm the slippers go up in ½″ / approx. 1cm increments to 7½″ /19 cm.
As a guide this covers shoe sizes UK 2 to 12½ / US 2½ to 13 and EU 17.5 to 30.5.
It was very difficult to get exact conversions between shoe sizes and foot length. Shoe sizes are given as a guide only please refer, if you can, to the finished foot length to determine the size you need to make.

The pattern is eight pages long with written instructions for knitting the slippers flat and in the round with a chart of figures which cover all sizes and methods. Each pattern and the chart are on pages of their own so you only need print the pages you want.

I do not give specific instructions on how to knit using magic loop or two circulars so you should be familiar with these methods if you wish to use the seamless version of the pattern.
