Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!
This is a pattern from a 1914 Home Needlework Magazine for Knitted Boudoir Slippers.
The slippers can be knit in either a plain garter, seed or basket stitch. The directions are given for each.
An earlier blog post, Beginner Knitting Manual, includes a booklet that has six pages of instructions on how to knit and the stitches used here. You can download or print the manual to refer to later.
Pink and White cotton Perle No. 3 are used. The knitting needle size isn’t given.
The soles for the slippers are bought separately. These Boye Suede Slipper Soles and Boye Starting Points Suede Slipper Soles come in several different sizes and have pre-punched holes for easy attachment.
The toes and top are embroidered with a pretty lazy daisy design in shades of pink, yellow center and green leaves cotton embroidery thread. They are finished with bows of ribbon.
Clicking on the pattern page below will open it in another window to save or print.
Here are the instructions for the Boudoir Slippers:
