Pixie Slippers in Garter Stitch
Created By: L Linda
Pattern Source: other:

I tried making the Crochet Pixie Slippers but stumbled on the pattern so I decided to knit them. Used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn and a 24" long, 10 1/2" size circular needle. With Blossom knit an 8 1/2" square in garter stitch. With the Taupe color yarn and the right side of the Blossom color square facing you pick up 24 stitches alone one edge of the square, pick up an extra stitch at first corner being sure to place a marker on each side of it, continue to pick up 24 more stitches along the next edge. Knit back and forth, increasing one stitch on each side of the corner stitch on wrong side rows and knit evenly on right side rows. Increases were made using the knit in front then knit in back of the stitch method. Continue till the square is 12 1/2". Sew it together as the directions for the pattern say. For the edging, use an F size crochet hook, begin with a slip stitch and go around the opening with single crochet for 51 sc. On the return row chain three and attach it to first sc with a slip stitch, crochet two sc along cuff edge and chain three from the second sc and repeat this around till the last sc, chain three and anchor it with a slip stitch into last sc, break the yarn and pull it through the loop. This pattern used every inch of the yarn. It was a little challenge to convert the pattern and develop the picot edge. I made the slippers for my daughter. The slippers are made from a square! Yes I would recommend the pattern.
