A while back I had a wonderful pattern for slippers. You’re probably familiar with a type of it. Every nine stitches you purl so there’s two ridges on the bottom of the slipper. For the toe part, you use stocking stitch (please don’t tell me about ribbing; for some reason I have developed the inability to do so on odd numbered rows; dumb I know, but for the moment, I’ve given up on them). The part I can’t remember is the decreasing rows. I remember you only do it every second row but can’t remember the specifics of decreasing.
I thought it was grandmother’s slippers but that’s got the ribbing.
