Fire protection potion slippers knitting pattern.

knit slippers with embroidered fire motifTo warm up after this cool winterish weekend (or should I rather be happy it hasn't snowed?) I wrote up the final issue pattern for those Fire protection potion slippers.

The pattern includes:

- written instructions for shaping.
- charted duplicate stitch pattern.
- a photo tutorial for optional sole.


You can also find a free tutorial to add a sole to your slippers in this post.
