Knitting Pattern Norwegian Slippers US Size 9

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Well, it's not always the case and most of the times, between you and his heart will find his mother. Yes, the mother in law!

So instead of taking care of him all the time, remember to take care of her as well. I regularly send her presents, things I know she likes and one of the gifts I recently shipped off to her were the Norwegian Slippers.

It's a very easy pattern to knit and you can make a pair of slippers in 2 or 3 days, depending on how much time you spend on them. The original pattern I found was suppose to be felted but I didn't have special yarn for it so I had to adjust the pattern for a US shoe size 9.

The pattern is easy to adjust to your size as the pattern is made out of squares. Just calculate the widest part of your foot and that's the diagonal of one square. I used 3 colors (orange, white and lilac- see the picture) for this pattern, but you can use just one or 2 colors, your choice.

So here it is, the Norwegian slippers I made for my mother in law:



Materials: any kind of yarn as long as you keep the gauge
Needles: 3mm knitting needles
Gauge: 26 stitches=8 cm (about 3.20 inches)

Use this video as reference to fold and saw the slippers.
