This is where Scandiwork began. I designed and knit these slippers for a friend’s birthday and after many people asked for the pattern, I self-published the pattern on the website/knitting community Ravelry. Ingeborg has the easiest sole to knit because the purl side repeats the pattern of the previous knit row. So if purling in colorwork is new to you, you don’t need to look at the chart—which gives you extra brainpower to focus on purling in colorwork.
I love everything about this slipper! I hope you do too! I named this slipper after my Grandfather’s Norwegian great grandmother.
Size Women’s 6-8 If you need a larger size, knit on a larger needle to get 22 or 23 stitches over 4 inches. This will increase the length and the width of the slipper. When the slippers are felted, they don’t shrink in length as much as they do in width. The pattern has finished measurements before and after felting. Yarn Raumagarn 3 tr. Strikkegarn, 50 g Grey 113 (or 105 meters of equivalent DK-weight yarn). 50 g Off-White 101 (or 105 meters of equivalent DK-weight yarn) Needles and Hooks 3mm double-point needles, a 3mm crochet hook, and a darning needle. Gauge and Swatch 24 stitches = 4 inches or 10 cm, and lightly felted 28 stitches = 4 inches or 10 cm Please pay attention to the gauge and use whatever size knitting needle you need to in order to obtain the gauge. In teaching a class on these slippers, I have seen knitters use as small as a US 2 needle and as large as a US 5. It is all about the gauge.
