The Harrisville Slippers are an ultra-simple instant
gratification type project, excellent for those who
are knitting novices, or who otherwise have chilly
toes needing a nice cozy pair of slippers. Worsted
or dk weight yarn held double creates the bulky
fabric for this pattern, making them a good use of
bits and bobs of stash yarn.
