Pattern Description:

Knits up quickly.

Perfect for clogs on chilly days.

Compliments variegated AND self striping yarns....and of course semi-solid and solids as well:)

Although it fits my sizable cankles, it will work for those of you with average legs too:) Sizing modifications are simple and are included.

Add a suede slipper sole and you've got a rocking pair of slippers to plod about the house in.

What's a cankle? When your calf is so large that it seems to blend into your foot with no tapering at the ankle.......................its oh so sexy and feminine. Why? After 8 years of field hockey and catching for my softball teams ALONG with my Scottish HIGHLANDER DNA, I have developed an impressive case of cankles. NOTE: My cankles are NOT fat! If you call them fat AND I hear you, I'll use my power cankles to chase after you:)


11 stitches and 17 rows = 2 inches in stockinette

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • average adult, easily modified
  • adjustable to any size foot or cankle


  • Size 4 US needles
