Bosnian Slippers is a quick and easy basic pattern for slippers. They are knitted in one piece top down using one pair of circular needles. Garter stitch pattern and changing colors for the stripes makes the process fun and smooth sailing.

The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes, divided into three categories: Adults, Youth and Toddlers. Choose the very best size or use the Slippers Formula on the last page, which is suitable for any foot size and any yarn weight using your own calculations.
