malabrigo loafers

Image 1
  • Malabrigo yarn is so soft… wearing these loafers is like walking in a cloud.

    Skills Needed

    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


    • small: women’s 6–8
    • 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.


    Yarn Options

    • 2 skeins Malabrigo Merino Worsted, used doubled throughout (100% merino wool, 100g/210 yds), or
    • 420 (420, 420) yds of worsted weight held doubled, or approx 210 (210, 210) yds bulky yarn held single


    • small: one 40" or longer, or two shorter US 8 circ
    • medium: one 40" or longer, or two shorter US 9 circ
    • large: one 40" or longer, or two shorter US 10 circ

    Change needle size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

    Notions (Optional)

    • Scrap yarn for embellishments.
