We have changed the name of this pattern to Dogwood slippers. We are sorry for the hurt the previous name of our pattern has caused. We are not part of the indigenous peoples from whom the word Mukluks originates.

Winters can be cold and damp in our corner of the world. These chunky slippers are perfect for high-speed sliding on hardwood floors, and cuddling up in front of the fire on a dark and stormy evening.



Important Note: yarn-weight varies by size -

  • baby size is worked in DK weight yarn
  • toddler and child sizes are worked in Worsted / Aran weight yarn
  • adult sizes are worked in Super Bulky yarn
