{FREE} GRAY DAY: Simple Slippers Knitting Pattern

hand knit slippers with fur poms

I’ve been wanting to design some “slippers” for years. My toes are always cold and I don’t like wearing shoes and I want something eco friendly. I want something cute & quick & easy to make in almost any size! {Small order, right?!} I tried a few different styles, but this one is my favorite. It fits nice and snug and they’re easy to knit to your foot and you can try them on as you go!
