FO: Mocassins 4 Olga

April 2, 2009
FO - Crocheted Mocassins1

History I was knitting some booties when Olga asked me if i can make her a pair in her size. She is just learning to knit and she knits in english style…. I tried to steer her towards the continental but she thinks english is easy 🙂
I felt that knitting will make floppy slippers so looked up for crocheted ones.
Yarn: Patons Inca (2.25 balls)
Hook: 5mm
Others: Stitch Markers and Tapestry needle (to weave in the ends)
Gauge: Almost as per the pattern
Size: To fit Olga’s Feet
Pattern: Crocheted Mocassin by UmmeYusuf. There are lot more cute patterns by her so pop into her blog.
They turned out perfect… dont be fooled by the wonky mocassins in the photo.. I had to take the snap before i gave them to Olga and i was in a hurry. By the way Olga is a carer who accompanies a lady to the knitting group i attend. They are a perfect fit and she loved them.

I did make a few changes to the pattern. I changed the way the sole is constructed to give it a bit shape. I finished off the mocassin with a contrasting yarn (even the fringe). I added a tab at the sole end for practical purposes.

The yarn is bulky weight so i used only one strand. I got the yarn at a thrift store.

If i make it again;
Will make it in solid colors. I will also use a piece of commercial felt underneath the sole so that the yarn on the sole will not wear off.

Nothing much

Worked on it for two days…a day for each one.
