FREE Crochet Pattern for Kids Slippers

I have been making these slippers for years. My original pattern came from an Annie's Attic Book. However, the book was lent out and lost, so I no longer have that pattern. I found this FREE Crochet Pattern for Kids Slippers online. I have made these for everyone in the family and they definitely keep your feet warm. I like to make them using one solid color and one varigated color. I have even used scraps for the varigated part. I really cannot see any difference in this pattern than the original one I always made, but here is the credit for this pattern. From L.A. Crochet Basics 1976, designed by Sharon Klinsky, Glenview, IL.
