These slippers are like wearing handmade sheep on your feet, little clouds of comfort!
Worked in one piece, the sole is knit back and forth and is HEAVILY thrummed to give extra cushioning. The sides are worked in the round and the instep is again worked back and forth with a few shortened rows to bring the back of the slipper up and leave the front lower for easy in and out!
And in case you are wondering, ‘Fingge’ simply means slippers in Swissgerman, my native tongue.
Here's to warm toes for everyone!
