Recommended needle size

Notions
yarn needle
stitch markers (for Colorwork Slippers only)

GAUGE

20 sts/28 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in single-color Stockinette stitch on US #7/4.5mm needles
23 sts/40 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in garter stitch on US #4/3.5mm needles
27 sts/24 rounds = 4 inches/10 cm in colorwork pattern on US #6/4mm needles (for Colorwork Slippers only)

Tip: Gauge is measured blocked. I suggest making a swatch and washing it with this yarn because the superwash wool opens up a bit when you wet it and my sample slippers both grew in size when I soaked them for blocking.

PATTERN NOTES

Choosing a size: 
I like slippers to have negative ease so both of these pairs are designed to stretch to fit. For the Colowork Slippers, choose a size 1-2 inches smaller in circumference than your foot. The Ribbed Slippers are very stretchy – choose a size 2-3 inches smaller in circumference than your foot.
