Ruby Red Slippers

November 2011
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
5.0 mm (H)
280 yards (256 m)
Women's Medium (but adjustable)

After a long trek to the Emerald City, Dorothy would happily have traded her shoes for these sparkling slippers, complete with red “ruby” buttons and double soles for extra comfort.

Length: Approx 9”/22.5cm
Width: Approx 3.75”/9.5cm (at widest part of foot)


  • 2 5/8”/1.5cm diameter red “ruby” buttons (La Mode #43277)
  • Sewing needle and matching thread (to attach buttons)
  • Stitch marker
  • Yarn needle

Designer Note: The slippers are identical except for button placement. Don’t panic if the left slipper turns out to be the right slipper. Just attach the other strap on the opposite side.
