I would like to thank Mona for testing this pattern for me, also for her suggestions for making the instructions easier for new knitters to understand. You can see slippers that Mona made from this pattern at http://knitting57039.tripod.com
Thanks to Olly for sending me this picture of the slipper she made from this pattern.
Thanks again to Olly! She sent me a picture of the slippers she made with Phentex yarn. She said she did not have to adjust the pattern at all. She said it was slower working with the Phentex as it's stiffer yarn. (As it is tougher yarn, the slippers will last longer.)
Yarn: 2 balls of 4 ply worsted weight yarn in different colors. I bought large balls of yarn so I am not sure how much I used but I had lots left over. So this pattern does not use much yarn. I used black and white but you can use any color combinations that you want.
Needles: 5 mm, either double pointed or circular. I like the circular needles as I find them easier to work with.
Gauge: 6 sts = 1 inch, 8 rows = 1 inch.
Size: These will fit a 9 1/2 inch foot. They will be very easy to adjust for smaller and larger sizes. To keep in pattern, add 4 stitches. This will increase the width almost 1 inch. For the length, to increase 1 inch work 8 more rows, to shorten the length by 1 inch leave off 8 rows. As well, you can increase or decrease the length by a 1/2 inch by adding or subtracting 4 rows. I should add that these slippers are very stretchy.

Cut yarn about 15 inches from Knitting needle. Put on a darning needle and remove
the stitches from the knitting needle onto the tail end of yarn. Turn slipper inside out
and pull yarn tight to close up end. Sew to secure. Continue to sew across top of
slipper leaving enough room for foot opening (about 6 inches across the top). Sew up back of slipper.
