These cozy slippers are a combination of clever construction, pretty cables, and simple shaping. Bulky yarn makes this the perfect pattern for a last-minute holiday gift, with no more finishing than a grafted toe.
Construction of the slipper begins at the center back of the heel, beginning with a figure-8 cast on. The sides and sole are worked simultaneously, back and forth, then later joined and worked in the round to the desired total length. Stitches are grafted at the toe giving the slipper a completely seamless finish - this allows it to be tried on as you go!

A wonderfully misplaced, 25-year-old American odd-jobber, novelist, knitwear designer, and tech-editor, married to a wonderful man whom I’m trying to talk into knitting with me and who you will often find on my designs page as my male knitwear model. I am a lover of all things cute and if I’m not working on a new design, you can usually find me walking through sheep fields, gardening, or taking moodily lit portraits of my cat.

I give 10% of profits from my pattern sales to a charity, which rotates every quarter. This quarter’s charity is Anti-Slavery International. For the second quarter of 2012, 10% of sale proceeds from my patterns will go to fighting the very real and persistent problem of modern slavery around the world.
Note on pattern payments: I usually sell in GBP, so prices on Craftsy may periodically change to reflect fluctuations in exchange rates.
