Dolce Handknits 1009 Mabel PDF
Mabel from Dolce Handknits creates a warm and cozy set of felted slippers. Worked with super bulky yarn, these slippers knit up quickly, making them a great gift idea! These slippers are knit sole first, with each half of the upper portion picked up and worked separately. Short seams at the heels and toes complete the construction, and then it’s time to felt and embellish (instructions are included for both)!
