Something cosy

Picture 2713

I’m loving this quick slipper pattern! Miss so-close-to-three-I-can-nearly-taste-the-cake and I both have a pair, and they are quick to knit, cosy to wear, and super cosy.

The pattern is an oldy but a goody, a traditional 1940’s pattern and posted on this blog.

Although the pattern is knitted flat and seamed, it’s easy to do them seamless to – do Judy’s Magic Cast on, or Turkish cast on, and instead of knitting in the round, knit back and forth on the stitches which creates the seam at the back. And once the foot is long enough, join the stitches in the round and no seaming, easy as that. I hate trying to seam garter stitch nicely!

The pattern calls for double stranded worsted weight yarn. For both pairs I used double stranded Dk from my stash – I used up almost all of my leftover navy yarn – two different types, but it’s not noticeable. And For my pair I teamed it with leftovers from Miss 1’s Rainbow Dress (not redyed).

Miss so-close-to-three-I-can-nearly-taste-the-cake’s slippers are a hit. They are knit from a plain grey yarn and a cute pink and purple variegated yarn, not too bright with the grey, and so cosy! 

So, if you’ve got cold toes and some leftover yarn in your stash, this is the pattern for you!

And speaking of patterns, I’m nearly ready to release my new pattern! Watch this space 🙂 There will be another giveaway to celebrate too 🙂 Must make room in my stash for the 400g of yarn I have coming. I fell off the wagon! In my defense, a friend was destashing a deleted yarn that I love knitting *and* which wears well. A no-brainer really!
