Norwegian motif women’s slippers are fun to make, fun to wear, and fun to give away.


A fairly fast knit—in the round with double-pointed needles and single piece construction, Else 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, a crocheted edge, and embroidery.

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

The tenth 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.
