Cute, comfortable, and cushy! Construction for these mirror-image slippers starts with the toe, and features a super soft double-knit sole to keep your feet extra toasty. After the sole is completed, each slipper is finished with a stylish basket weave inspired band that will gently hug your ankle like your new best friend. Add some personalized flair to your pair by knitting the bands from a contrasting color, or by adding decorative buttons or bling where the band overlaps.

This slipper pattern is worked at 6 sts/inch on recommended US Size 4 (3.5mm) needles, and is written for Narrow, Medium, and Wide widths. The knitter will establish the foot length. The instructions are provided in text and diagrams, for DPNs, Two Circs, and Magic Loop needle techniques.

Sock-aholic® Brewski is dyed by hand at our brewery using a wonderfully soft 4-ply Luxury Worsted Yarn made from 100% Fine Merino Superwash. Each 100g skein contains approximately 190 yards, and knits at a gauge of 5-6 stitches per inch using size 5-7 needles. This yarn is soft as a cloud, yet durable enough to make fabulous garments that you’ll want to wear right next to your skin.

This yarn may be machine washed in cool water using a gentle cycle and mild detergent. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
