Knotted slippers are a delicate little foot covering. Try them in a luxurious fingering or lace weight yarn for a special gift. This is an elegant way to practice the Kitchener stitch, you will be an expert after a couple of pairs!
General knitting skills plus magic loop or using two circs; kitchener stitch.
US women’s shoe size 5–6 (6.5–7.5, 8–9, 9.5–10.5, 11–12)
1 skein A Verb For Keeping Warm Floating (70% Alpaca, 20% Cashmere, 10% Silk, 100 g/400 yds), or
1 skein Valley Yarns Charlemont (60% superwash merino, 20% silk, 20% polyamide, 100 g/439 yds), or
200 (200, 250, 300, 350) yds of lace or fingering weight used doubled.
Note: You will need to use the yarn double for the body of the slipper and then single for the knot so a single, heavier weight yarn will not work. Each of these skeins will yield two pairs for sizes 5–6 and 6.5–7.5 size, and one pair for sizes 8–9, 9.5–10.5, and 11–12.
