Easy Two Color Slippers

Designed by Donna Druchunas for Knitty as Shoe or Sock? That is the Question.

Marsh Felted Slippers
I love the way this top down flat knit slipper is perfect for self-striping yarn making a quick colorful bootie.

Designed by Claudia Olson. Pictured project by beanly

Fast and Thick Slippers
Easy, cozy, and quick, these slippers are knit flat on single pointed needles with either 2 strands of worsted weight yarn or one strand of super bulky yarn. Great for beginners, according to the designer, because it only involves basic stitches including the knit and purl stitch, k2tog, P2tog and casting on stitches. Perfect last minute Christmas gift!
