California Comfortable: Slouchy Cuff Slippers (pattern)



These slippers are worked from the top down with an afterthought heel. You will knit in some smooth waste yarn where the heel will be placed and then continue knitting the foot, trying it on as you go to measure where to start your toe shaping. After you are finished with the main body of the slipper, you will go back and remove that waste yarn, exposing live stitches to knit the heel.

I find slippers to be necessary no matter the climate. They are the definition of cozy. Of Saturday mornings spent at home making pancakes and then curling up on the couch with a good book (or even better - some yarn and needles.) These knit up quick and cushy at 3 stitches per inch, while keeping you stylish (despite your bed heads best efforts.)

I have found that utilizing lifelines makes Afterthought Heels even easier! Check out this tutorial for a visual!
