Knitted Children’s Slippers

I have a basic knitted slipper pattern, but it is for adults and teens.  I wanted a pattern for kids – so I took the one I had been using and altered it for kids.  The results – wonderful!  I have been busy making my Christmas gifts and have many kids on my list – so a pair or two of slippers gets some names checked off!!  And will also keep some footsies toasty warm come this winter!
