Beginners, don't pass this by!
The dots and center-medallion Pattern looked too complicated for my beginner level, but this is really easy to knit, no complicated techniques at all. My only stumbling block was in understanding how to pick up stitches while attaching the sole to the back of the body of the slipper. I consulted a knitting website for help, but if you buy your yarn from an actual yarn store (vs a big box store) they will be happy to give you personalized help. Also, the generous fitting tips given in the pattern provide the information needed to fit these to knit them as presents for your entire family! I didn't understand at first that the width of the sole adds to the width of the ankle ribbing, so my initial increasing of the ribbing stitches for my swollen ankles turned out to be unnecessary. Customer service was excellent, and the site also has some beautiful stitch markers that I have my eye on (so much prettier than the plastic ones, and very reasonably priced).
It is ADDICTIVE!
i am currently knitting my second pair of slippers
they are easy to knit, and the instructions are exceptionally well-written, easy to follow, with carefully chosen pictures that really illustrate the process. the best part is that you don't lose interest after the first one, you are still excited by the pattern to finish the pair.
they are fun to knit, especially the 3-dimensional aspect. it gives me a kick to create this without seams.
they are cool-looking, and even my conservative husband wants a pair.
and they really keep your feet warm.
i highly recommend trying it, as it is easy for beginners and fun for the more advanced. and it is ADDICTIVE! you can't just knit one pair...
tamar in brooklyn,
Henya was in constant contact with me and very honest. I highly recommend doing business with her!!!
I love this pattern!
I love this pattern! I'm a beginner knitter and this was perfect for me. At first, looking at the pictures, I couldn't figure out how there would be no seam on the slipper but the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Once you finish the first slipper you've got the pattern down. The finished slipper is really warm and cosy and fits well. The pattern has instructions for all sizes and some helpful tips on adjusting the fit. Well worth buying this pattern.
