I thought I'd show you the slippers I'm making for Christmas gifts. I've been whipping them up for years, as it's a quick and easy project. I no longer have the original pattern, working off my copy now, but if I recall correctly, it was from Annie's Attic (although, I can't seem to locate it on their website, so may be out of print?). The pattern calls for double strands of 4-ply throughout; I used Red Heart Super Saver for these: (Lavener/Blueberry Pie and Black/Ocean). Thanks for checking them out. :)

EDIT
ATTENTION to all those who would like to see this out-of-print pattern reissued:::
A Crochetville member, Krakovianka (Karen) shared that if there are enough requests, the publisher just may reissue the pattern; that it's been known to happen before. Perhaps if all those who are interested in this slipper pattern would send such a request to Annie's Attic, they'd consider it!? Karen mentioned that AA could easily offer it as a digital download, should they choose, which I imagine puts the odds in our favor.

If you are interested in getting in on this pattern's band wagon, the original was a a single-patterned two-page leaflet entitled:

Big Foot Boutique II: TENNIS SOCKS, designed by Annie Potter, Annie's Attic, 1982

Should I hear anything, I'll post it -please do the same. :)

Thank you, gals! I admit that I tend to gravitate toward the instant gratification that these provide, what with their quick and easy whip-up :rock There's a lot to be said about the smaller projects when a respite from the more involved is needed. :yes

LOL Heather! :lol A size we share (the size of the two pair with the colored toes)

BTW -If anyone knows and could share how the copyright laws rule when a pattern is no longer in print, that would be nice (I had possession of the original Annie's Attic pattern back in the 80's, I believe)

Those look awesomely comfy if you find out about the copy right or know the book it came out of I would love to find me a copy of that pattern. I have looked at and tried alot of slipper patterns and this is perfect.

LaVonne, I don't recall the pattern being from a book. I remember it as a one-pattern/two-page pamphlet from Annie's Attic (circa early 1980's?), and I believe they were actually called 'tennis socks'(?), if that helps at all (although they are far too thick to wear with any type of shoe). As I recall too, they originally instructed making a small pompom to attach to the back of the ankle (ergo, a tennis-sock style), which I never included. Sure wish I could be of more help.

Very nice. Crocheted slippers always seem to be appreciated by most people.

:clap Oh Yay!, LaVonne!!! I'm so glad you found a copy! Be careful, or you may find these easy-peasy slippers as addictive as I have ;) After crocheting my first pair, I never went in search of another pattern. BTW, instructions include 7 size variations, from children through adults, which is nice. I hope you'll start a new thread and share a pic of your slippers when you get them done! -I look forward to seeing them. Happy crocheting!
