Cast on 29 (35-41) sts using 2 strands of yarn.

Row 1: P1, *K1,P1, repeat from *across row
Row 2: K1 *P1,K1, repeat from *across row
Repeat these 2 rows until you have 12 rows (14-16) then work row 1 once more, cut off yarn leaving an 8” end.
Draw 8” end through remaining sts and pull up tightly, then sew with large plastic needle from beginning of ribbing to form toe. Fold cast on edge in half and sew inside seam for center back.
Make 2 pom-poms and tie to each front side tightly and knot to inside of slipper. You will notice that the pom-poms on the brown pair of slippers were not cut but just folded and tied in the center. The pom-poms on the pink pair were cut and laid down in a half circle and then the heart button was sewn on. Get creative with the buttons and pom-poms and make each more unique.
