Well, I imagine Santa wears slippers, when he takes a rest in his cozy house at the North Pole and I bet he’s got warm and squishy ones to keep his feet toasty. Maybe some slippers alike the ones I came up with the other day…
The slippers are worked using different techniques: some parts are worked flat, others are worked in the round. To fully enjoy the pattern you should be willing to tackle the following challenges: provisional cast on, knit 1/1 cables in right side and wrong side rows, pick up stitches, graft stitches together according to the pattern or alternatively 3 needles bind off.
You will need to calculate the correct stitch count and number of repeats based on the size you wish to knit and the measurements of your foot. Full instructions are given and it is easier than it might sound – and it’ll make these the perfect slippers just for YOU.
You’ll need: 100 to 150 g of worsted weight yarn. I recommend the use of a semi-solid colourway, because the pattern will show much better. If you wish you can use two different colours and work the cuff or the sole in a contrasting colour.
The pattern was originally designed as a mystery KAL in four parts that was held in December 2012.
