Felted Slipper Socks
These handsome two-color slipper socks are a fantastic, fast knit for yourself or for a friend. Make them either two colors, or just one if you prefer.
Beginning with the heel portion in Color A, slipper is worked flat to create the back of the foot and heel. Stitches are then picked up in Color B and the rest of the slipper is worked in the round to the toe. Small bits of German Short Row are used for a more refined fit, and the toe is closed with Kitchener Stitch.
