Norwegian motif slippers are fun to make, fun to give away, and fun to wear while waiting for Santa.


A fairly fast knit—in the round with double-pointed needles and single piece construction, Astrid Slippers are perfect for chilly nights or frosty mornings. They feature 2-color stranded knitting, double-point knitting in the round, back and forth knit and purl work, and a crocheted edge.

Knit with Raumagarn. Sweet stocking stuffer. Super happy for fall or winter nights by the fire with a cozy mug.

The seventh pair of slippers in a series of twelve to be published as an eBook. Stay tuned…

Felted Gauge
Lightly felted 28 stitches = 4 inches or 10 cm

Note: Pay attention to your gauge and use whatever size needle you need to knit 24 stitches and 24 rows for 4 inches. While teaching a class on these slippers, I have seen knitters use needles as small as a US 2 and as large as a US 5.
