This pattern is also available in print in the brick-and-mortar shop, Tolt Yarn and Wool in Carnation, Washington, along with the yarn to knit it.
Note: We are in the process of adding an additional Extra Large size to the pattern, which will be available soon. Depending on the elasticity of your colorwork, these slippers may run small, so be sure to swatch before casting on in order to check your gauge and fabric!
These Hearth Slippers evoke images of delightfully wintry scenes: snowy woods, old fashioned sleds, cups of hot chocolate and wool blankets. The slippers are worked seamlessly in the round from the top down. Each size uses different charts; these are divided into separate pages, so be sure to use only the page for the size being worked. Heel stitches are placed on hold while the rest of the slipper is worked; these stitches are picked up and knit at the end.
The pattern also calls for Fiber Trends slipper bottoms.
