Malabrigo yarn is so soft… wearing these loafers is like walking in a cloud.

Sizes
Small: women’s US 6–8
Medium: women’s US 8–10
Large: men’s US 10–12
The pattern is the same for each of the sizes. The needle size determines the size of the slipper. The loafers will stretch with wearing, so if in doubt, knit a size smaller.
