Lakeridge is the perfect pattern for gift knitting. It knits up quickly using only 1 skein of worsted weight yarn . The sample is a narrow circumference with a 9 inch foot and used 52 grams/1.8 ounces of yarn.

I’ve designed this pattern so that each pair will be slightly different; since the foot length is customizable, you’ll finish at a different point in the stitch pattern for each pair that you knit, so each pair will be unique yet at the same time similar to the other pairs you’ve knit.

This is a great slipper to have on hand. You can keep several pairs in a basket by your front door for guests who visit during the chilly months and might appreciate a pair of cozy slippers.

This pattern uses a seamless cast on. A link to a video tutorial demonstrating the unique construction and cast on method is included with the pattern. Instructions are included for 4 circumferences and foot length is customizable. The stitch pattern is both written & charted and includes schematics.

Thank you to Kniterations for tech editing this pattern and to all the awesome test knitters who test knit it.
