Last night I finished my newly designed Moccasin slipper, and I was anxious to share it with you, so I have uploaded the pictures below. I hope you like the design.
As I mentioned in the last couple of posts, this project was constructed using the Twine knitting technique and shaped with short rows.
Here is a closer look at the upper toe section of the pattern. I have knitted a casing around the back and sides, which aligns with the casing I designed in the instep flap. A 24 inch crocheted chain of both colors cinches the Moccasin in for a perfect fit.
The slipper on the right was my original pattern. It is enough to say that I am pleased with the results of my labors. I will be ordering the yarn for the second one, as this creation was done out of my stash (my play around yarn). I am planning on knitting snowflake knee socks to match. I might even put them together. Where I live it gets cold in the winter, and a extra Thermo layer would be nice.
As you can see the side chain, which can be done with a crochet hook or can be stitch as a embroidery chain stitch, pulls it all together.
This has been a fun project.
