2. Thrummed Biscotte Slippers
These slippers use a toe-up cast-on, so if you’re a fan of toe-up socks then you’ll have no problem with these. If you’ve never tried a toe-up cast on before, the worsted-weight slippers are the perfect opportunity to try it out with a thicker yarn.

6. Felted Slipper
This slipper pattern calls for two strands of yarn held together, creating a slipper that works up in no time. After you seam the slipper, you’ll felt it and form it, so don’t worry about perfecting those seams. Once you felt the slippers, all the imperfections will disappear!

7. Maria Slippers
These slippers are just as pretty as they are functional. Imitate the two-color palette you see here, or just use one solid color for the entire slipper. Ties around the ankles give you a bit of a custom fit that can be adjusted.
