The Duffers – Revisited pattern is the updated and expanded version of the Duffers original pattern.
A quick to knit felted slipper pattern in a whole range of sizes and width fittings.
This Duffers pattern has now grown into an absolute monster running to 16 pages. Don’t worry though, you should never have to print them all out, not unless you want to.
The pattern consists of written patterns covering different sets of sizes (there are two sets, the smallest three and the largest three sizes), different widths and methods of knitting. Each of these patterns has a page of its own with blank spaces where the number of stitches etc. should be. All figures for the different patterns are in chart form and there are two charts. The pattern page for your chosen size, width and method will tell you which chart you need the figures from.
To make up your pattern all you need to do is print the one pattern page that shows your size, width and method of knitting. Then take the numbers from the appropriate chart and fill in the blank spaces, you are then ready to start knitting.
This new expanded pattern covers sizes:
UK: 2, 3, 5, 6-7, 8, 10 ½
US: 3, 5½, 7½, 9½, 10½, 13
EUR: 33, 35.5, 38, 39-40, 43, 45
These shoe sizes are approximate and it is better, if you can, to measure foot length and use that as a better guide as to which size to knit.
The finished foot lengths included in the pattern are: INCHES: 8½, 9, 9½, 10, 10½ & 11 (CM: 23, 23.5, 24, 25.5, 26.5 & 28)
Each of these sizes can be knitted in Standard, Wide and Extra Wide width fittings.
Each width fitting adds approx. 1″ to the circumference of the slipper. The smallest three sizes start at a foot circumference of about 8-8 1/2″ so the wide version comes in at 9-9 1/2″ and the extra wide at 10-10 1/2. Similarly the largest three sizes have foot circumferences which start at about 9 1/2-10″ so the wide is 10 1/2-11″ and the extra wide 11 1/2 – 12″.
The pattern now covers knitting the slippers flat and then seaming or knitting them seamlessly.
The pattern is available for £3.75 ( plus vat if applicable)
