In Northern parts of the earth, winter can last for months. When finally the snow start melting, and the first wild-flowers peeks up from the cold ground, it’s spring!
What a feeling!
To take on “small-shoes”, as we called it a life-time ago, was like flying!
These crochet/knit slippers are a tribute to the best time of the year!
KNIT WITH YOUR HOOK!
Not Tapestry, not “normal” crochet.
I’ve tried to demystify working with colors, without too much fuss! This is a no-stress, no-hurry project!
Slow-down, relax, enjoy every stitch!
The pattern is created with the crocheted knit-stitch; Ssc (Split single crochet). Also called the Waistcoat Stitch.
A regular sc, with hook inserted into the middle of the stitch. Require a minimum of practice.
Same technique as for the Crochet/Knit Clog-Slippers, and the Crochet/Knit Casual Slippers.
The flower-pattern is maybe slightly more challenging than the previous Snow Heart Slippers, but great fun!
Skill level: Intermediate.
Not difficult, just different!
Crucial skill: You need to understand colored pattern-charts, like in knitting, or cross-stitch embroidery.
Optional: Protect your slippers against wear and tear, join out-soles to the bottom!
And turn your slippers into shoes for street-wear!
