DESIGNED BY ELIZABETH SULLIVAN
These simple slippers knit up very quickly in our Sutton bulky yarn, and are worked in one piece from the toe to the heel. The contrasting strap and trim gives a sporty look to the ballet-style slippers. The pattern is written for four adult sizes and is easily adjustable for the perfect fit.
This pattern is also available as a knitting kit with enough hand-dyed yarn to make any of the 4 sizes, and matching wooden buttons.
