Plush Puppy Slippers

Lion Brand® TiffanyTM


22 sts + 25 rows = 5 in. [12.5 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using 2 strands of A held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

With 2 strands of A held tog, cast on 24 (26, 28, 30) sts.
Row 1 (RS): Knit.
Row 2: K 2, p 20 (22, 24, 26), k 2.
Rep Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 2½ in. [6.5 cm], end with a WS row.
Continue in St st until piece measures 4½ (5, 5¼, 5½) in. [11.5 (12.5, 13.5, 14) cm] from beg, end with a WS row.
Next Row: K2tog across – 12 (13, 14, 15) sts.
Next Row: Purl. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull tightly to secure.

Fold piece in half, sew back seam.
Sew top seam up to knit sts, leaving a 2½ in. [6.5 cm] opening.

Ears (make 4)
With 2 strands of B held tog, cast on 5 sts.
Knit 6 rows.

Next Row: K2tog, k 1, k2tog – 3 sts.
Bind off as if to knit.
Sew 2 Ears on front of each Bootie. Sew button on front for nose.

With B, cut 12 lengths of yarn each 5 in. [12.5 cm] long. Using 2 strands of yarn held tog, make a triple overhand knot in the center. Sew 3 Spots on back of each Bootie in a random pattern.

Tail (make 2)
With 2 strands of B held tog, cast on 5 sts. Bind off all sts. Sew tails at top back seam.

Plush Puppy Slippers Reviewed by Jackie Matuza on 2008-12-09 ****
I love this little slippers they're so cute! The pattern was easy enough but using the yarn was a bit of a challenge, especially using 2 strands. The fuzz of the yarn made it difficult to always make sure I had the stitch correct, so I restarted a few times because I wasn't happy with the mistakes, but eventually got the hang of it and they are adorable. I included eyes and a nose and didn't do the tail or the spots.
