Slippers are knitted flat from the back of the foot to the toe, with increases to shape the heel. Stitches are bound off at each end to create the cuff, then the piece is worked the length of the foot with decreases to shape the toe. Top of foot and front of cuff are seamed, and back of foot is closed using the three-needle bind off. Stitches are picked up around top of cuff and worked in a contrasting color.
