Knit the Bottoms Up Slipper this Holiday

I love giving handmade gifts to the special people in my life. But let’s be honest - finding a project that checks all the right boxes can be a huge challenge.  Not everyone on your list wants a beaded bracelet!  For me I always want a knit that is quick enough (because Lola doesn’t like to be tied down at this time of year), but still challenging enough that I don’t get totally bored.

Bottoms Up Brioche Slippers

The Bottoms Up Slipper is my answer to this conundrum. Not only is it a fast and fun knit, but it’s also sized for the whole family. Slippers for everyone this year!

One of the design details I like most about this slipper is the brioche on the toe and heel flap.  It's a fun way to play with color, and dip your toe (see what I did there?) into brioche!  And because we all love to have options, you can make them short or tall.

If you love this design but thought to yourself - I’d really like to wear this as a sock... I got you! This pattern is also written for fingering weight yarn, so you can knit whatever your heart (or feet) desire.
