Norwegian-inspired slippers are like mittens for your feet. Common in Scandinavia, once you wear them you’ll never go back to bare feet on cold wood floors. These are the little sister slippers to Kristin’s Marte Slippers. Sporting a slightly more petite flower in the same familiar blue and white.
These slippers are included in my Norsknits eBook.
