Longest Night

Cozy up by the fireplace in a pair of comfy slippers on the longest night of the year.

 

Longest Night are a pair of sport-weight toe-up colorwork slippers inspired by the winter solstice. A large snowflake on the toe and a repeating pattern of smaller snowflakes cover the foot. Gusset increases are incorporated into the colorwork pattern. The reinforced heel is worked in one color only. The slippers are finished with a fold-over picot edging.


The slippers are available in two sizes to fit women’s foot sizes EU 38–40 (41–43) / US 7–9 (10–12). The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. The stranded colorwork pattern is charted only.
