Kenneth Street Slippers

Kenneth Street Slippers are a quick and cozy project in a wide range of sizes, with nice details and a bit of short row shaping to keep these slippers on your feet. Each slipper is worked in one piece from beginning to end; the toe is worked in the round while the rest of the slipper is worked flat. The pattern includes tips for selecting your yarn, plus illustrated tutorials for the toe-up cast on used in the sample and for working German Short Rows. To make these slippers, you will need to know how to knit, purl, and pick up stitches.

The structure is similar to the Last Minute Travel Slippers. While those were designed for road trips, these slippers were finished in quarantine, so I’ve named them for the street we quarantined on: Kenneth Street in Duncan, BC.
