Knitted Winter WarmersWinter sure is coming in thick and fast here. I love the cosiness of the colder weather so when we are not outside (which is most of the day) I thought I'd make these little snugly slippers for the children to wear inside.
I cannot make items following detailed patterns and I usually make it up as I go but a dear friend gave me this simple pattern that even I could do. The way I describe the steps is easy enough for even the newest knitter to follow. I mean basic. You can get really creative by selecting different textures of wool or making them various colours by changing wool colour throughout. The possibilities are endless.
This is what it looks like as you knit it up.
The purl stitch you do in the first rows
make the work have a turn up for sides
|Thread wool through remaining |
stitches and pull tight
The number of stitches you have dictates how high the sides go up the ankle and then you just knit the length you need. So if you want a higher slipper cast on more stitches.
|Inside out sew up from the toe to the ankle |
(till you get to the heel part)
The middle stitches just need to be one more than the outer ones so you can play around to find the size you want
Below are photos of how to sew the slipper up.
You cannot make a mistake really they are so very easy.
Experiment and have fun with them.
Stay warm :)
