Sylphide Ballet Slippers


Pattern Sizing and Materials

These simple slippers knit up very quickly using just one skein of bulky yarn. Worked in one piece from the toe to the heel, the snug fit and clean lines make a graceful ballet-style slipper, and optional beads add a touch of elegance. The pattern is written for four sizes and is easily adjustable for the perfect fit.
