Video Knitting Course: Easy Norwegian Felted Slippers
These beginner felted slippers are like a little puzzle – you knit a strip of garter-stitch fabric, pick up and knit a few flaps on the sides, and then seam everything up in an origami-like fashion that magically results in two elfish-looking slippers.
Perfect for beginners and fun for advanced knitters, in this 11-video step-by-step course you'll learn to count rows on Garter stitch with complete confidence, pick up and knit, seam with Mattress stitch, and more.

Recommended Straight Needles: 10-Inch Signature Needles by Signature Needle Arts
Signature Needles are the official straight needle of KnitFreedom. Their stiletto-tip straight needle is smooth, accurate, and perfect for lace knitting.
I recommend the 10″ length, stiletto tip (for any knitting). The cap style is up to you!
Recommended Yarn: Walkabout Yarn by Queensland Collection
Its heathered colors complement each other, and it is a breeze to work with. Felts beautifully.
Recommended Notion: Needle-Felting Needles by Fiber Trends
A good beginner pack of felting needles can introduce you to the fun skill of needle felting. Use wool yarn to add decorations to your finished projects.
Serious needle-felters even make lifelike figurines from pure wool by needle-felting.
Recommended Notion: Needle-Felting Pad by Clover
A needle-felting pad helps you needle-felt without poking your fingers. It provides a firm base for your needle felting projects.
Recommended Notion: Suede Slipper Bottoms by Fiber Trends
These popular slipper bottoms (2-piece: heel and toe) add traction and durability to the bottoms of your slippers or slipper-socks.
The sewing holes are pre-punched, and you can sew them on with the included sock yarn. Prevents your slippers or socks from wearing out in the heel and toe.
