My new pattern - Apache Tears Slippers

I love the Apache Tears Afghan. I had made a couple of them years ago from
this pattern - Apache Tears Afghan.

Here is another neat one with different spacing that makes a great effect,

 Those are beautiful patterns but the down side is each row is worked from
right to left, and that makes it necessary to leave a fringe unless you want to 
sew in ends on every row, and that is not very fun!

So I decided to see if I could work this design into a slippers pattern. Since
it's done in rounds, there are no yarn fringes or ends to sew in on each round.

Here is what I came up with.

 You can get my Free Pattern here - Apache Tears Slippers.

I am working on another pair done in brown, camo and green. I'll post a picture when
it's finished. There are a lot of great color combinations that you could come up with,
which makes this pattern a lot of fun. I changed colors every 3 rows, but you could
change colors every 2 rows, or even every row. Wouldn't these look great done
in the colors of the rainbow?!
