Mathematical Slippers

When the colder weather came I couldn’t wear my normal slippers, because I had an injury to my leg a few months ago and it was still strapped up. I decided to knit some.

I looked at various existing patterns but then decided to design my own because I suddenly realised that feet are basically the same proportions, regardless of the size, and it would be possible to create a pattern that would fit anyone.

This is an archetypal Woolly Thoughts pattern. The slippers can be made with any yarn and any needles in any size you want, without having to make a tension swatch. The only maths required is to be able to divide a small number by three.

The slippers can be customised in various ways and are ideal for using up oddments of yarn.
