Editors Note: The Irish Ewe’s store and website closed in fall 2008. This pattern in still available through the internet archive.

Different needle sizes are used to get the child and adult versions of the slippers (US 5/3.75 mm for kids, US 6/4.0 mm for adults) and to bind off loosely (US 8/5.0 mm for kids, US 9/5.5 mm for adults)

From The Irish Ewe’s website:
“These slippers have been around in one form or another for decades, and there is a reason why - they are fast (takes an hour per slipper!), use little yarn (less than a skein!), worked on 2 straight needles (no double points needed), and they fit any size foot (even my hubby’s!)

There are a bizzilion and one patterns out there for these slippers, and here’s our take (because you can never have enough free patterns!)“
