Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Lace knitting
  • Judy's Magic Cast On
  • Short rows

Pattern Description:

What should one wear while dancing amongst trees in a golden wood? What covers the feet of elves? Surely they would appreciate these silky slippers, covered in leaves and laced with vines.

These pretty and playful slippers knit up super-quick, and take less than one 50g ball of sock yarn - a perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a little luxury. Knit them in silk or cashmere, or a lush hand-dyed yarn you've had your
eye on. Knit several as gifts! They can be worn with or without the contrasting i-cord laces, which have lace leaves at each tip.

The slippers are knit from the toe-up for an easily customized fit. The sweet leafy lace pattern continues up the foot and right onto the cuff (which can be knit short or long).

The lace pattern is both written and charted.
