As You Like It Felted Slipper Boots
New from Georgina Bow Creations!
Tired of cold toes as you go about your day to day activities? Knit yourself a pair of slipper boots! You knit them extra large, then felt them down to the correct size, making them dense, thick and warm. For extra fun and personalization, dye them your favorite color. They could also be embellished with buttons or other trims to really dress them up.
Knit to wear like slippers, with plenty of room for cozy socks, these boots have a folded down cuff to add extra warmth to your ankles. Like hot cocoa for your toes, you'll reach for these when you need a little extra snuggle on those cold days and nights.
Basic felting instructions (using the washing machine) and basic dyeing instructions are included as well as sizing for US Women's shoe size 3 to 12.
These are knit from the top down to the toe on two circular needles at once. Even if you've never knit on two circular needles at once, there are a number of tutorials available on the Internet if you need more information on this particular technique.
Yarn shown in the sample pair is KnitPicks Bare Peruvian Highland Wool.
