Double Knit Slipper Socks
April 25, 2010 by knit-tweaker
I designed my Double Knit Cozy Slipper Socks so I could use the “Slipper Toe” pattern I stumbled on to while playing around with short rows. I am delighted with the results. And …. they feel so…… good on my feet. My husband even said he might like a pair for next winter. Hummmm… , maybe I could chart an elk on them. There were nine on the hill behind the house this morning.
Here are the pictures of the ballerina slipper. I will post the pattern as soon as it it off the press.
You will notice that I incorporated that rose I used in “Charting Your Knitting Ideas.” Next time I’ll turn it around so I can see it.
Beside using the Slipper Toe, I was able to use several techniques for this project. I picked up my stitches for the ribbing as I went- yes, picked ‘um up on the fly.
I used the invisible cast off, which provided me with a tube through which to slide my elastic thread, for a nice fit.
Combine that with the fun of double knitting, and what more could a girl ask for?
