Wannabe Vans Slippers or MEN
Product DescriptionMy kids wore Vanns sneakers, thatís all theyíd wear for years. I decided to come up with a slipper pattern that had the look of Vans. Here is what I came up with. I am very pleased with how they came out. They have a nice fit, donít slip at the heel and are very stretchy and cushy. Because my Options Slipper patterns have done so well, decided to make this a pattern with sole options too.
The top part of the slipper is knit. Knitting is easy/intermediate, you will use k, p, skp, and w&t. Yardage for the slipper top is: Worsted weight yarn approx. 105(125,160,190) yds. for main color. Worsted weight yarn approx. 32(40,45,50)yds. for contrast color
You can then either cut a sole (template included) out of an old felted sweater or some other material (Iíve used a thrift store suede jacket before), or you can knit the sole, or for speed, you can crochet the sole. Instructions for the knitted/crochet sole are included as well. The slipper top and the sole are sewn together using a blanket stitch or simple whip stitch whatever you prefer.
In the tips and hints section I also give you a suggestion as to how to make your slippers non-slip.
Check out my other patterns, I have a womenís version of this as well. Kids version coming soon!
As with all my patterns, feel free to make and sell as many finished goods as you like, no need for permission.
