Gabe kept grumbling that I was stealing his slippers every morning, so I thought Id’ better knit something for myself.
I had some yarn leftover from the Nob Hill collar, and before you know it, Gabe was modeling these puppies for my bloggy-blog (I am mentioning this lest you think French girls have furry legs):
They were a little too massive-looking, like hobbit-feet, so I thought I’d add a bit of ribbon to make them more girly.
Pattern: This is a free pattern I first saw on Ravelry, it’s called “Side Cable Slippers” and you can find it on freepatterns.com – you have to register first to access the pattern though.
Yarn: Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, 1 ball in Taupe
Needles: US 13 circulars
Time to complete: 1hr30
My opinion: I made these so quickly, and they are really comfy. This would be a good way to use up odds and ends in the stash – you can make these holding several strands or yarn. Good gift idea, too.
I’ll leave you with some action shots:
