Warm their feet and hearts with these beautiful, quick knit slippers!
Knit in one piece, each slipper starts at the back heel and works its way forward with nice cables along the sides. Then, the stitches are joined in the round and finished on DPNs. A super sweet twisted stitch heart decorates the top of each slipper.
Minor seaming at the back heel and that's it! Plus, only one skein of yarn needed (assuming you reuse the gauge swatch yarn for size L). Makes a great gift idea for Valentine's or just anytime.
