Notes

Thought that the diagonal measurement of the square should be half the foot length. About 12cm. This ended up being 4 rounds.

Thought that it was going to make the slipper a bit tight so decided to whip stitch the squares together. Turns out they were a little bit loose.

Decided I’d add an extra square to the top opening to make them a bit more secure and give more coverage.
Finished these off by outlined the opening with some beige yarn.

I’ve called these “Elvish” because these remind me of the pointed shoes elves wear in popular culture :)
