These slippers look like little beans or wee fairy shoes, but will keep your toes hugely toasty! They are a quick knit with worsted weight yarn and wool roving for the thrums. As you wear the slippers, the thrums will felt down to a soft padding and keep your tootsies warm. Be sure to read the thrum tutorial before beginning!
The slippers are begun flat at the heel, and then joined to work the toe in the round. Instructions are given for dpns, but you can use magic loop or two circulars if you prefer. The foot opening features a built-in i-cord edging.
Yarn: 210 yards worsted-weight non-superwash wool.
Gauge: 18sts = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette stitch.
Needles: US #6/4mm (or size to get gauge) both for working flat AND for working in the round.
Roving: 1.5 ounces of wool roving.
