Malabrigo yarn is so soft… wearing these loafers is like walking in a cloud.
Cast on, bind off, knit, purl, pick up stitches, circular knitting using Magic Loop or knitting with two circ needles, and short row shaping. I prefer the Shadow Wrap method (see tutorial at cocoknits.com).

medium: women’s 8–10
large: men’s 10–12
The pattern is the same for each of the sizes. The needle size determines the size of the slipper. The loafers will stretch with wearing, so if in doubt, knit a size smaller.
