Cozy up in these classy cabled flats! These slippers boast a stylish cabled band, seamless construction, and an extra comfy double-knit sole.

A simple, crocheted border (around the sole) adds style and structure. Full instructions for working the crocheted border are included in pattern. (No prior crochet experience needed!)

NOTE: This pattern uses the double knit stitch (as opposed to double knitting). It’s not difficult and creates a great, thick and squishy sole!

Techniques used: German Short Rows (full instructions included in pattern), simple cabling (written directions only), working in the round, picking up sts, crochet chained border (full instructions included in pattern).

Knit Picks Simply Wool Bulky:
C1 (Winnie): 100 (110, 115, 125) yds / 92 (100, 105, 115) m
C2 (Wallace): 80 (85, 90, 95) yds / 73 (78, 82, 87) m

Note: If substituting yarn, please note that this yarn is thinner than a traditional bulky yarn. It knits up more like a thick Aran weight yarn. I recommend against using any yarn thinner than Aran weight as you want a dense fabric.

US 6 (4 mm) straight (optional); US 6 (4 mm) circular (47” / 120 cm); US 7 (4.5 mm) circular (47” / 120 cm) (for BO); Crochet hook (size H)

Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge. Gauge is extremely important as stitch and row counts are exact throughout the pattern.
