Quick & Easy Ladies Ballet Slippers
These Ballet style slippers re so quick and easy to make. I used Twilight double Knitting yarn and size 4.5mm hook (uk) size.
This pattern can be adapted to any size foot, i just chain enough for the length of the foot and add 3 chain for the first hdc...
Row 1 hdc in 3rd chain from hook, hdc in each chain to end.
Row 2-16 chain 2 hdc in each stitch to end. Fasten off leaving a long tail.
You will have a rectangular piece, gather the toe by weaving the yarn in and out along the top of the width of your work. Fold the piece in half lengthwise and pull the yarn tight so the toe is gathered. Stitch along for about half an inch to the other end of the
slipper fasten off
Stitch up the heel and fasten off.
Chain 80 and thread around the edge of the slipper for the tie....
