Easy knitted slippers in two sizes. Work these slippers from the cuff edge down with increases to shape the toe. The slippers are joined along the sole, then seamed to close the back of the heel.

Designer Lisa Shroyer
Sizes 8½ (10)" long from back of heel to tip of toe, to fit woman's medium (large); shown in medium size
Yarn Cascade Ecological Wool (100% wool; 478 yd [440 m]/250 g): #
• #8016 natural, 1 skein (yarn should be enough for 4 pairs)
Gauge 15 sts and 20 rows = 4" in St st
Tools
• Size 9 (5.5 mm) needles
• Spare needle for three-needle BO
• Yarn needle

NOTE to Knitter:    Double pointed needles are easier to knit the pattern when you are dividing stitches and working the 3 needle bind-off.

Pattern Clarification: During increase rows, the stitch count before and after YOs will increase by 1 stitch each side every RS row. Likewise, during decrease rows, the stitch count before and after the K2tog will decrease by 1 stitch each side every RS row.

They were way easy, but the sizes are really small - fit me, but I wear a 6!  Also, is there a way to do the 3-needle bindoff so the seem is to the outside?  It is somewhat bulky around the toes the way it is.  First time to do this bindoff technique and I am a HUGE fan!!
