From Comforts of Home: These are the sweetest soft baby slippers you’ll ever see! They are so irresistible that even having to work the simple increasing and decreasing techniques won’t put you off. Make them as a baby gift or knit an adult size for yourself or your partner. Handmade gifts are the best, and these relaxed indoor shoes with their pared-down design are sure to be treasured. The baby sizes can be knitted in either a denim yarn or a simple cotton knitting yarn, and the two adult sizes in denim yarn. Although the denim shrinks in length when it is first washed, this is no problem since the shrinkage is compensated for in the knitting pattern. Denim has an especially seductive feel and look, and gives the slippers extra firmness, so its (sic) worth that little extra care needed for washing and drying the pieces before stitching them together. Worked completely in beautiful textural seed stitch, these slippers are ideal for the bathroom or bedroom, or for lounging around the house.
