Using a Slipper Loom,
2 strands acrylic yarn
Use an e-wrap stitch
Cast on pegs
*Wrap pegs for first row, do not complete circle,
Stop at last Peg before first stitch.
Knit off & Turn. *All odd numbered rows
**Knit off to beginning peg,& turn.
Creating a flat swatch.
Knit off in this fashion, always turning & knitting back to the first peg,
**All even numbered rows
When this swatch equals apx. 5-6 inches long,
***Begin Knitting in the round. Forming a knitted tube.
*** (Do Not stop & turn at the last peg, complete the circle)
When the Knitted tube is an appropriate length ,cut yarn, leaving a 10-12 inch tail.
## Please see size guide for apx. inch to sz conversion
Thread yarn tail onto a yarn needle.
Remove stitches from pegs with the yarn needle,
In order,onto the yarn tail. Beginning with the last stitch.
Gather tightly & tie off.
We do not want any toes to escape.
Adding a cuff is MANDATORY.
The cuff must measure 5-5 1/2 inches wide.
Return the slipper to the loom using the stitches at the foot hole.
Overlap the center 3 stitches, to prevent a stitch gap. This peg will be knit off as 3 over 1 for the first row.
Knit in the round if possible,
Knit as a flat swatch if your loom has more pegs than stitches available,
Or if your loom has less pegs than stitches. You may transfer the slipper onto a straight knitting frame.
For a folded cuff on the loom:
Knit off 20-25 rows. Re-attach the first row of the cuff,
For a Mock Sock Cuff: Knit off 12-15 rows & bind off.
If binding off with a crochet hook, add a single yarn over crochet stitch between each peg stitch.
You may also Crochet a cuff around the foot opening. A minimum of 3 rows.
Whip stitch the heel section, you may T this heel section. Do this step after the cuff!!
Re-attaching a slipper to the loom for a cuff. From the top & the side.
