These cozy foot hugging felt slippers will keep your toes toasty warm all through the winter.
They are knitted on 2 needles and have no complicated sock heel shaping to tackle. You can even knit each slipper in easy sections and seam them together, before washing them to transform your knitting into thick warm felt.
My clear and detailed pattern instructions guide you step by step, through knitting, making up and felting your slippers.
I include lots of knitting tips and a specially extended felting section to ensure your slippers fit perfectly.
This pattern includes full instructions to make 3 sizes..
Felted Size Small, UK size 3-4 approx 22cm long Medium UK size 5-6 approx 24cm long Large UK size 7-8 approx 26cm long

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
