Easiest Knit Slippers Pattern. Easiest Knit Slippers Pattern Anyone Can Make

These can be made with two strands of Red Heart yarn and knit up very nicely. We would rather the knitters NOT add a pompon as it makes slippers more bulky to pack. We ask the knitters to make the slippers to fit themselves.  That way we get a variety of sizes.  If anyone has a favourite slipper pattern, they are more than welcome to use it.
