I like the red color used in these slippers. It's nice to do a lot of this type of slippers for each member of the family in their favorite colors. Then it will be a parade of colors when they wear the slippers all at the same time. Awesome!

Wouldn't these Red Rose Slippers be perfect added to a robe under the Christmas tree for your special little one child, niece or grandchild? I'm glad that it's designated as an "easy" pattern so they should make up fairly quickly! I think I will do some research and add a slip proof bottom. I know I've seen suggestions and tutorials online for several ideas in that area. Thanks for the free pattern!

Slippers are great projects for Beginners, but like many of the projects that originate in other places, this post needs photos! If not that, then a link to the original. These are actually listed as the Double Sole Slippers on the Red Heart site and can be found here http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/double-sole-s == lippers This 5 star pattern can be downloaded from there so no excuses on this one!

This pattern is so confusing. When I read through the pattern I was wondering what size is the small, medium, and large. I have a hard time understanding written patterns, and this one is high on my do not understand list. Are there any EASY to understand patterns ouf there??

Hi Sharon! The pattern is written for size small - any updates for M/L are written in the parenthesis you see throughout. For instance, take the first row: Row 1: Ch 23 (25, 27) dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across, turn21 (23, 25) sts. ---- For small, you chain 23 to start. For M, you chain 25 to start and for L you chain 27. :)

What a lovely color for a pair of slippers. These Red Rose Slippers are fit to use on carpeted floors. It is the most appropriate footwear to use indoors when you don't want to get your rugs or floors soiled with dirt and grime that has stuck on your shoes from outside. You can also make several pairs of these slippers for use by your female guests. You will not worry that germs and bacteria from outside will contaminate your house.

I believe the soles go over the top of each other to make a double sole. Pattern is for a child. Did anyone make the largest and how big is it? (what size comparison)? What about medium? What size comparison? I do like the pattern it seems easy enough for I am a beginner and this is my first try at reading patterns. Any Help would be greatly appreciated. I don't know the symbols of patterns, if someone could e-mail me info for that. Thanks. to email@example.com

I work in a hospital gift shop and our slippers don't sell because we haven't put anti-skid material on the soles of them. Can you add instructions for such?

Going by the way the slipper looks in the photo and the number of stitches, it looks to me like these may have been crocheted with a double strand of yarn and a bigger hook. That would make the finished slipper come out larger and more true-to-size. I'm going to try it that way.

I just made the size large, with some stretching they fit me, asize 9 in women's. they fit pretty snug and the double stitches are spaced out and doesn't provide much warmth. I can't imagine the small would fit anyone over 8years old.
