Apache Tears Slippers

I love the Apache Tears Afghan so I decided to work this design into a 
pair of slippers.



The slippers in shades of blue was done with the "tears" reversed, slanting to the back of the slipper instead of to the front. Scroll down on the pattern page for the "reversed" instructions.

MATERIALS
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight yarn. I used Redheart, 7 oz, 364 yards, larger skeins than what was needed.
So I'm not sure exactly how much yarn I used.
Hook: 5.00 mm

Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch

Size: Women's adult, 9 to 9.5 inch foot. You could use different hook sizes to get different sized slippers.
