I originally designed these for my husband. I loved the idea of using the contrast of a felted slipper with an un-felted strap, giving the entire slipper more texture and dimension, and I love the results so much that I have tried the technique several times since with other patterns.

Knit from the bottom up, this pattern is fun to knit and is entirely seamless.
This pattern was designed with the intermediate knitter or adventurous beginner in mind. The entire slipper is knit in garter stitch. Techniques within the pattern include knitting in the round, picking up stitches, short rows and felting. The pattern also includes many high definition photos throughout, as well as a leather sole tutorial. Also included are detailed felting instructions to take you step by step. These include instructions for both top-loading and front-loading washing machines, as well as a hand felting alternative.
Also available are video tutorials under the "Help" tab of this site for some of the more complicated techniques.
