I promised a few weeks ago to share this pattern, and finally had a bit of time to find it and fix it up for you! These slippers are knit flat and seamed up the back*, and shaped to fit the toys with rounded feet (not the toys with big feet like the bunnies and monkeys). I don't remember how much yarn I used to knit these, but it wasn't very much.
Slippers (make 2)
Materials: small amount of fingering or sock weight yarn, 3 mm (US size 2.5) needles, tapestry needle
Cast on 14 sts.
Row 1: P 1 row.
Row 2: k1, [m1, k1] across. (27 sts)
Row 3: P 1 row.
Row 4: k2, [m1, k4] x 6, m1, k1. (34 sts)
Row 5-9: work 5 rows in st st.
Row 10: k11, [skpo] 3 times, [k2tog] 3 times, k11. (28 sts)
Row 11: P 1 row.
Row 12: k8, [skpo] 3 times, [k2tog] 3 times, k8. (22 sts)
Row 13-15: work 3 rows in st st.
Row 16-18: work 3 rows in [k1, p1] rib.
Row 19: bind off loosely in pattern (tip: use a larger needle).
Sew together back seam and sole of sock.
The slippers will be a bit snug to get on, but this way they don't fall off!
*You should be able to convert this pattern to knit in the round, using dpns. Just remember to knit the rows that are written as "P 1 row"
