Freebie Friday.........

::: (\_(\
*: (=’ :’) :*
•.. (,(”)(”)¤°.¸¸.•´¯`» Good Morning •¨¯`• 
Hope all is well with everyone!  We're busy getting ready for Christmas! 
Today will be errand day and gift shopping.... all day wrestling day....getting tons done around the house!

Today's Freebie is going to be a tutorial for the slippers I've been making lately!  I've had a few ladies not understand the written instruction completely.. so thought I would put out a few pictures to help.

This is the 8th pair of slippers I've made since last month!
I anticipate making many many more next year!!!
Pattern can be found HERE

This is the beginning of the toe.  (bad lighting... sorry!)

This is the beginning of the foot part

And now we have the part that seems to cause an issue for some... the heel
the pattern says............. ch 11

The pattern reads like this....
Row 1: Using both loops, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of next  9 ch; sc in each of next 20 (25 - 25) sc; sc in each ch on opposite side of beg ch; ch 1, turn.

You will sc down one side of the ch 11 .... around the foot.... and back up the other side of the ch11

And now in back loop only you will turn and sc back down to the foot... around and back up.... it will start to look like this............

work in this manner for  the rows required for the size you're  making......

Coming to the end ..... slip stitching it close...... and you're done.

And there ya go............ make a second one and now you have a wonderful pair of slippers to keep your feet warm!!!
I sure hope this helped.  If you have more questions... please ask.. I'd be happy to answer them!
Off to get my boys movin' for the day!
Its biscuits and gravy morning at school.... YUM!!!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!!
