Cozy Critter Slippers by Annie's Attic

Here are some slippers to make for the pre-schooler's in your life. This book is by Annie's Attic. She has a total of eight pair of animal slippers. Lion, Goldfish, Bunny, Bumble Bee, Squirrel, Alligator & Skunk.  Little kids LOVE these slippers. They are hand knitted with a doubled worsted weight yarn or a chunky yarn. They can be made up in a couple of evenings so are a quick project when you don't have a lot of time to spend on them, or are going on a short road trip. They make nice hand work. The pattern is fairly simple so would be appropriate for a beginner hand knitter. Also, doesn't take much yarn so you can use up leftover skein's of yarn. The all time favorite of my g'kids is the alligator!! 
I did use this pattern to make simple slippers with leftover yarn in a variety of colors.
