FOR PRIVATE NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY
For the short row section I personally suggest the shadow wraps.
The slipper shown (blue-white) is knitted in the bottom up version of the pattern instructions.
This is a foot shaped slipper pattern that offers many options in design and colour if you are a little bit creative. The instructions (meaning the colour changes) are given for a version with bi-coloured sole (MC red) and are in top down or bottom up.
I also have linked video tutorials (YouTube) of all the techniques that I have used apart from knit and purl.
