Looking for childrens santa slippers pattern

I used to have a great pattern for childrens knit santa slippers that I ordered from the NY Times or NY Post around 1972 -1977. Have been searching for years & could never find anywhere. Can't remember the name or # that was on the pattern but it's not the pattern titled Christmas Presents. It had a nice Santa face on the front of the slipper set amid a blue background with little stars that looked like they were twinkling in the sky above Santa's face.

Anyone have this or a nice child's santa slipper pattern in knit or crochet?

Bonniebee, I've about given up hope of ever finding that pattern. I lost it during a move in 1978 & have been trying to replace it ever since 78. I've been searching ebay, vintage pattern sitess & pattern shops ever since the internet came about & have been unable to find one.

I originally purchased the pattern from one of the NY Sunday newspapers & made it for my son when he was a toddler so the year I bought it would have been sometime around 1973 to 1975. I goofed up the years in my original post.

I'm tired of searching for it every year so this board is my last hope of ever finding it again. I have a granddaughter who will be 2 in Dec. & I would really like to make the slippers for her. If somehow I get lucky & someone on this board has one I will share but after all the years of searching with no luck I don't think I'll ever be able to get that pattern again.

Would the NYC library have a copy in their stacks or even in their film?
