Week 50: 11th December – 17th December 2013

19 Dec

P1100147

More presents -a pair of elf boots. Really simple pattern, knitted in chunky wool on 5mm needles. Slip stitch mosaic pattern which makes them nice and warm. Turned up toe is produced by whip stitching the seam and pulling tight. These are for women’s size 5-7, and started off with 43 stitches. They took about 4 evenings (7-9), but I am not the world’s fastest knitter.

    Hi,
    lovely slippers 🙂 I was looking to make the pattern and was wondering how many skeins of yarn you went through? Thanks!

      Glad you liked them. I used an acrylic yarn – Hayfield Bonus Chunky, and used one 100g ball of each colour. Each ball is c. 150 yards. Hope that helps.
