Aunt Dana's Russian Boots

Here is my latest project. This slipper pattern was included in the Knitting box calender for 2007 and I really, really like this pattern. And they knit up quickly also. The only thing is there was not a size included in the pattern and they ended up a child’s size, probably for a 6 or 7 yr. old. Now I have to figure out how to make them an adult size. I think if I just do more increases down to the sole so the sole will have more stitches it might work. I guess this pair will go to my grandson.

Ooooooooooh, they look REALLY comfy, cozy!!! I love that they come up around the ankles.

Nice job! :happydance: :cheering:


Thanks, Diane. Yeah, that’s why I liked them so much. They’re real “sturdy” looking.

but, of course, these were not patterns but found at a store. Ha! They are cute though if I can find a pattern similar somewhere.
