Ribbed Slipper Boots ~ new Pattern Giveaway!!
I am soooo excited to finally have this pattern finished!! I have been working on it for a long time, and I am very happy with how these turned out…. these being Ribbed Slipper Boots! I don’t know if anyone else has a trouble keeping their toes warm and cozy in the wintertime, but I sure do. One of the things I like best about these, is that they are LONG. They fit much like a boot to keep you nice and warm!

This pattern uses worsted weight yarn, and there are so many different colour options. I love how this pattern works up, because there are very few ends to tuck in. It’s a bit different because you start at the top and work down… and make the entire boot part. Then you make the sole and sew the 2 together. If you want extra thick soles, you can double them and sew them together, or you can use leather soles. I love these soles from brickbubble! There is also a tutorial I’ve seen on Pinterest that shows using flip flop soles, and I think they would be amazing for more of an outdoor shoe.

I have tried my best to make this pattern easy to follow, and easy to change for each person. It is very important that you check your gauge, and that you measure/check each time the pattern tells you too. The instructions explain how to make this pattern fit pretty much every foot size!
These slipper boots are so much fun to make, and there are a number of different ways you can make them unique. I personally love how they look with ribbon laced up the back or the side. Ribbon or leather tied around the top looks pretty cute, and you can do bows if you like as well!
