Dont worry i have made complete sets of these comfy slippers from erica knights crochet book.I love working in cotton. Double crochet makes a really strong fabric. I love the pattern looks almost like cords,do you remember men used to wear cords?well it looks like that.These are so durable and they get so soft and even more comfy as they age. I have had quite a busy week finishing quite a few projects. I've completed the green shrug, four patterned facecloths, slipppers,and I'm on the final sleeve of the chenille shrug I started months ago.
