Sylphide Ballet Slippers

  • A knitting pattern by Elizabeth Sullivan

    These simple slippers knit up very quickly using just one skein of our bulky-weight Largo Organic merino yarn. Worked in one piece from the toe to the heel, the snug fit and clean lines make a graceful ballet-style slipper, and optional beads add a touch of elegance. The pattern is written for four sizes and is easily adjustable for the perfect fit.
