Kari Slippers, the tiniest slippers in the Norseknits collection, are fun to make, fun to give away, and fun to wear while waiting for Santa.


A super fast knit—in the round with double-pointed needles and single piece construction, these little Kari 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, and a crocheted edge.

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

The twelfth pair of slippers in a series of twelve now published as a happy eBook.

Felted Gauge
Lightly felted 28 stitches = 4 inches or 10 cm

CAUTION SLIPPERY ON HARD FLOORS. You can google many ways to add rubber stickies or other grippy things to these for small toddlers. Or wear them on carpet only.

Note: Please 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.
