Curly Cuff Slippers
Curly cuff slippers are worked both in the round and back and forth in rows. You start at the heel and work your way to the top of the slipper. The top is shaped with decreases and the remaining stitches are pulled together. The curly cuff is worked by knitting a tube, which is sewn to the slipper after felting.

WATCH OUT! Felting is not an exact science and the result depends on several factors. Depending on which washing machine and/or which washing program is used or even with which other garments your work is washed, the result can vary.
