Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Today’s Freebie is slippers for him. I’ve done plenty of posts for slippers for her, but as June and Father’s Day approaches, I thought I’d share a vintage pattern for him.

Now Dad could go slip sliding around on hard wood floors with these slippers unless you add some type of grips to the bottom, but they will keep his feet warm while sitting on the couch or bed. They may even be a nice project to make for people that are confined to a wheelchair or bed in rehab or assisted living facilities.

These are made with heavy rug yarn and a crochet hook size No. 00 or bulky yarn and a crochet hook size G. Gauge is 4 stitches (sts) = 1 inch.

Instructions are given for a Medium size (8 to 9) 10 inches long or a Large size (9 to 10) 11 inches long.

Memorial Day makes this a long weekend for some. It’s an American holiday that marks the start of summer and a time to remember those who’ve died while serving in the Armed Forces.

I was thrilled when I found this great crochet pattern for a patriotic pair of Emblem Pot Holders held on a Victory “V” rack.

Made with Red, White and Blue yarn The Eagle and The Shield Pot Holders are made with a crochet Puff Stitch, then the designs are cross stitched onto the background.

These require Enterprise Yarn which is discontinued, so an alternative may be Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream or Aunt Lydia’s Fashion crochet cotton in #3.

Using the page of directions below for how a Puff Stitch is crocheted, you can make any size piece you’d like from holders to a large rug.  The gauge is 5 Puffs or 5 rows = 2 inches or 30 Puffs = 1 foot.

For The Eagle and The Shield, here is a close up of the color and diagrams.
