Ribboned Baby Slippers

Ribboned Baby Slippers

These impossibly cute baby slippers are from Zoe Mellor's Easy Knits book. They are dead simple to knit, and very fast. Can be done in an evening with no problem. I knit them on 4mm needles with Patons Country Garden DK yarn. The hardest part was finding ribbon that would match and sewing it on (I do not like to sew!).

There is an almost identical pattern in Simple Knits for Cherished Babies by Erika Knight, but I haven't used that - just noticed it there.

The slippers are about 11cm long and 5cm wide (~ 4.3" x 2"). My gauge was about 20 sts per 10 cm (4") in garter stitch.
