Cast on 66 Sts with color #1
Row 1: *K6 Sts in color #1, K 6 Sts. in Color #2* Repeat across the row Pulling (Not weaving) the second color in back of the working yarn. This makes the puff.
Row 2: repeat Row 1, except carry the unused color in the front of the work.
Repeat these rows until desired length.. K2tog across all stitches. Cut the yarn and pull through the loops. This is the toe.
Sew 1 stripe inside on both sides of the slippers to make extra gore.
Sew heel and top, leaving enough room to slip on. Make and tie or Pompom if desired.
Mattress St: With the right sides facing you, ( parallel to each other ) Insert the needle under the bar between the first and second sts. on the first row and pull the yarn through.
Insert the needle under the next bar on the second side.
Repeat from side to side being careful to match rows.
Repeat this process about six times on each side, pull your sewing yarn tightly and then stretch the seam gently.
This helps keep the seam as elastic as the knitting.

This is not a traditional hat pattern. It is a guide to letting your right brain have a little fun.
Requirements: You must be able to Knit, Purl, Cast On, Bind Off, Slip Stitches and Knit 2 Sts together. Familiar with working in the round.
Materials: 100 to 150 yards of various yarns, plus appropriate needle for the yarn. CONFIDENCE
Gauge: Using various yarns may require a little fudging with gauge. Too many heavier or thinner yarns will affect the size. It's is easier to keep the yarn the approximate same weight. (I do not necessarily follow this rule.
Measure your head (probably 20" to 22") times the gauge = stitches required. Example: a 20" head times 4 Sts to the inch = 80St Cast On. My hats usually run 80 to 100 Stitches. Keeping it at a divisible by 10 number makes the decrease figuring very easy.
Start: Cast on _____ Sts. Use ribbing at least 1", or just knit. Remember just knitting in the round curls the bottom.
For texture and color movement. All color change rows are an opportunity for interest.
At color change - K1, SL1 moves the previous color to the next row. Follow this row with either K1, P1, or P1, K1. Both give a different result.
P1, SL1, or K1, P1. for good texture. Do not Slip a Slip, Do not all Knit or All Purl for more than 4 rows.
K1 row Purl 1 Row makes a ridge.
Mix these ideas up Continually changing the yarns and stitches.
For traditional size work 6 inches before you start your decreases. The total Sts must be divisible by number 7, 8, 9 or 10. To get the decrease area deep enough.
If it is 10. Your first decrease row should be K8, K2tog followed by a work even row. Decrease every other row until K1, K2tog. Cut yarn and work in ends.
Seattle Seahawks 12th Man Knitting Graph. This Chart is available for your Personal use ONLY.
A Mandelbrot/Julia Set Fractal, inspired by the PBS program Fractals the colors of infinity,and of course my niece Melissa, who actually understands mathematics without pictures.
A fractal is a geometric pattern that repeats from minus infinity to infinity. Never ending. Never beginning. Considered by some to be a simple truth of all matter and energy. This fractal imagine was computer generated, arbitrarily colored and hand drawn on knitting graph. An infinite pattern hand knit into a finite space. Limited by the quantity of colors, stitches, and of course the space-time continuum.
