Well, that title is a little misleading since this post is only going to tackle the difference in knitting slippers for children and adults.  I’ll leave the bigger issues to the professionals.

While I am enjoying making both pairs of slippers, I must admit that it is easier for me to make the child’s version.  The adult’s version is made with two strands of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn.  I like the way the two strands knit up but I’m not a big fan of the process of knitting with two strands of yarn – any yarn (it isn’t personal to Softee Chunky).  I don’t know why – a personal quirk I suppose.  It just seems to knit so tightly (yes, I realize that that is the point)

The child’s version is knit with one strand of Bernat Satin. I find this more enjoyable and easier to work with.

Yet, once you get beyond the one strand/ two strand issue, the slippers are made the same way.

They progress from this the pictures that you see above, to this:

-Oh wait... the big reveal will be in next week’s post. I’ve got a few more stitches and some finishing to do.
