I think this pattern is magical because you would never know they work as slippers until you slip them on. it's just increasing + ribbing + decreasing= slippers.


I made these with modifications from Miss Twiss's blog as a present. They worked out perfectly. I used exactly one skein of Plymouth Suri Merino from the stash and some plastic buttons. A pic of my next pair already in progress can be found on the blog.

I'm not a knitter (yet - I'm working on it) or slipper person but these look great.

I just took a look at your blog and one of your photographs has given me an idea.  It is the one of the girl standing in front of the wool.  I don't have much storage space in my flat (it's unfurnished but I'm not going to furnish it - too much to take into a new place) but after seeing that photograph I'm going to buy a clothes rail and some canvas shelves for my fabric and bits - that's a brilliant idea.  Don't know why I didn't think of it before - it is so simple - maybe that is why  Cheesy.  So thanks for the inspiration!

With blessings.

That girl is me! And it is an excellent storage method. The picture's from the yarn store I work at.

I've been contemplating making these for awhile now. But I've noticed that there's no mention of gauge given.
Would you happen to know what the gauge is?   Roll Eyes
They look real comfy, and this would be a great way to start stash busting.
I was also wondering how long it took to make them?
Thanks for sharing.  They turned out great.

The thing is that there isn't really a gauge. It tells you to use worsted weight yarn and size 7 [us] needles. They're so stretchy that the ones pictured fit both a Womens US shoe size 6 and 9 and could probably go even bigger or smaller than that. I didn't have a chance to test yet, but I think with sock yarn you could have baby booties. Right now I'm making a pair with aran weight yarn and that seems appropriate for men's slippers.

I finished that pair in one day: it's a very, very quick project. But I won't guarantee they'll take everyone one day, I'm an experienced knitter.

Thanks for the info. I appreciate it very much. Maybe I'll just have to give them a try.
