Square Slippers

by Linda

  1. Leaving at least 12 inches of extra yarn at beginning, cast on enough sts to cover length of foot (about 30 with worsted).
  2. Work your favourite stitch pattern back and forth. Once you reach the length desired, dec sts to half original number. Break yarn and draw through all loops, removing them from needle, and leave at least 12 inches of yarn for sewing.
  3. With wrong side facing, sew instep seam about half the length of the square with the remaining length of yarn. With extra yarn from beginning, sew heel seam to end. (Graphical representation below)
  4. Attach a sc or knitted edging around foot opening for a couple of rounds, adding pompoms etc. as desired. Weave in remaining yarn ends.
