Else Slippers Pattern

Else Slippers Pattern

Regular price $6.00 Sale

In winter, I believe adding color throughout my house and clothing brightens up the long dark days and nights. I love this Folk-art snowflake slipper embellished with embroidery. It reminds me of Rosemaling.

Knit with Rauma Strikkegarn, Else is knit in the round with double-pointed needles and single-piece construction. Else Slippers are perfect for chilly nights or frosty mornings. They feature 2-color stranded knitting, double-point knitting in the round, back and forth knit and purl work, a crocheted edge, and embroidery.

Else is included in my Norsknits Ebook
