Toastie Slippers

24 Sep

Wow, it has been a little while since I posted here!

I made some slippers recently to sell at the upcoming advent creative market that takes place in my town every year. I found some great value super bulky yarn and decided to make slippers out of it.

They are basically just very simple toe-up socks with a short row heel. I decided to share the pattern with you my lovely readers… 🙂

Please take note of the copyright for this pattern:
Copyright Corinne’s Knits© – 2012

Abbreviations:
K – knit
M1 – make 1
P – purl
rd/s – round/s
rep – repeat
st/s – stitch/es
w&t – wrap and turn

Yarn: I used thick and thin super bulky yarn of no known brand. About 60m/65yds for a pair

Gauge:
10 sts x 16 rows for 10cm/4″ of stocking stitch in the round

Size: Woman medium (European 38-40)

Needles:
size 10.0mm/US 15 needles of your choice

Foot

Using a magic toe-up or Turkish cast on, cast on 6 stitches (3 on each needle).

Rd 1: K
Rd 2: *K1, M1, K1, M1, K1*, rep (10 sts)
Rd 3: K
Rd 4: *K1, M1, K3, M1, K1*, rep (14 sts)
Rd 5: K
Rd 6: *K1, M1, K5, M1, K1*, rep (18 sts)
Rds 7-31 (25 rds): K

Heel

The heel is knit only on half the stiches, back and forth

Row 1: K17, w&t
Row 2: P7, w&t
Row 3: K6, w&t
Row 4: P5, w&t
Row 5: K4, w&t
Row 6: P3, w&t
Row 7: K6, picking up the wraps as you find them, wrap the 1st st of the top of the foot and turn
Row 8: P9, picking up the wraps as you find them, wrap the last st of the top of the foot and turn
Row 9: K9

Leg

You are now done with the heel and will resume knitting in the rd on all 18 sts. On the first rd, you will pick up the two wraps make on the first and last sts of the top of the foot, these will close the gap with the heel without creating a hole.

Rds 1-6: K
Rds 7-9: *K1, P1*, rep across

Cast off using a stretchy cast off

Make second slipper (they are identical)

A New Version of Thorgal

24 Dec

I’ve just finished making another version of Thorgal for my eldest son. My prototype was for his younger brother and I’d promised to make him one too. It’s hot off the needles (so still unblocked). We tried to do a little photo shoot but the boys were a little bit too excited. His brother is also wearing his, so we have matching tops 😉

Thorgal, a Children Top

23 Sep

My latest design, Thorgal, was just released in the Fall 2011 Edition of Petite Purls. The pattern is available on the Petite Purls site for free, make sure to also check the rest of the edition, lots of cute patterns!

Picture by Brandy Fortune

Thorgal is inspired by the traditional yoke sweaters but I wanted to make a more modern looking version with texture while following the traditional construction. The name of the sweater comes from the Norse god Thor, as a reference to the Nordic origin of yoke sweaters.

As a mother of boys, I find that there are many more fun knitting patterns for girls than for boys. This is why I wanted the design to be suitable for both boys and girls and I think the color choice will allow to make it boy-ish or girly, as desired.

2 years 4 years, 6 years, 8 years, 10 years, 12 years

A Simple Baby and Toddler Sock Yarn Beret

7 Dec

This very simple little beret is perfect to use all the odd ends of sock yarn you have lying around. I designed it with self-striping yarn in mind, but I think it would also work beautifully with plain or variegated yarn and mixed colours leftovers.
It can be finished simply, with a very short
i-cord in traditional beret style, or even with a pompom or a tassel.
