MITTENS FOR YOUR FEET!
Norwegian slippers are fun to make, fun to wear, and fun to give away. FULL SLIPPER COLLECTION EBOOK NOW AVAILABLE!

A fairly fast knit—in the round with double-pointed needles and single piece construction, 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.

If you need a larger size, knit on a larger needle to get 22- or 23 stitches over 4 inches. This will increase the length and the width of the slipper. When the slippers are felted, they don’t shrink in length as much as they do in width. The pattern has finished measurements before and after felting.

Yarn
Raumagarn 3 tr. Strikkegarn, 50 g Grey 113 (or 105 meters of equivalent DK-weight yarn). 50 g Off White 101 (or 105 meters of equivalent DK-weight yarn)

Needles and Hooks
3mm double-point needles, a 3mm crochet hook, and a darning needle.

Gauge
24 stitches = 4 inches or 10 cm, lightly felted 28 stitches = 4 inches or 10 cm
Please pay attention to the gauge and use whatever size knitting needle you need to in order to obtain the gauge. In teaching a class on these slippers, I have seen knitters use as small as a US 2 needle and as large as a US 5. It is all about the gauge.
