The Season of the Slipper

December 22nd is the First Day of Winter, or as more commonly known to hand knitters "The Season of the Slipper!" Knit or crocheted, felted, tall boots, short slip ons, simple or adorned, a slipper pattern is not just a means to an end, but a blank canvas awaiting your special touch.

One of the most popular patterns remains French Press Knits' French Press Felted Slippers, sized in Small, Medium and Large, you pick the color and embellishment and this easy, basic design works for men & women and boys & girls. And to make things even easier for you I've just added new kits with new colors of Cascade 220 Wool.
