Coppélia Slippers Kit: This pattern is also available as a knitting kit which includes enough hand-dyed yarn to make any of the 4 sizes, and matching wooden buttons.⁠

These simple slippers knit up very quickly in bulky yarn, and are worked in one piece from the toe to the heel. The contrasting strap and trim gives a sporty look to the ballet-style slippers. The pattern is written for four adult sizes and is easily adjustable for the perfect fit.⁠
