This pattern has evolved from other knitted flat slipper patterns. The original slipper pattern can be found on Peppermint Mocha Mama's blog.
2 skeins of worsted weight yarn
Size 7US knitting needles
**You will be knitting with 2 strands of yarn held together throughout the pattern.
**Always slip the first stitch in every row as if to purl, this makes a nice edge.

Decreasing the Toe
Row 1: Sl1, *P2tog, P1*
Row 2: Sl1, *K2tog, K1*
Row 3: P2tog across to the end
Leave a long tail and cut yarn. Using a darning needle, run the yarn back thru, picking the yarn off the needle. Pull tight, this will form a circle at the end of the toe. Turn the slipper inside out and proceed to sew up the top of the slipper, stop at the change in pattern and tie off.
Fold the slipper in half and with the long tail from the cast on, sew up the heel.
Turn the slipper right side out. Make a pom, pom and attach. You may also add Dimensional paint to the bottom of the slipper to enhance traction.
