85 g of Novita 7 veljestä (75 % wool, 25 % polyamide) for a pair of slippers

4 mm or size to obtain gauge

About 38 (European size), slipper’s circumference = 25 cm.

If you need further information on shoe sizes, google for international shoe size charts.

Please note that the pattern is for this one size only. I'm not a professional pattern maker and cannot just throw figures for different sizes, so please don't even ask! An easy way to make at least a slightly different size is to change to thinner or thicker yarn and needles. Again, I don't know how thin or thick the yarn or needles should be for the size you're making - that you'll have to figure out by yourself by trying different yarns and needles - that's exactly what I'd have to do in the same situation! :-)

22 sts = 10 cm in garter stitch

K = knit
