Ballet flats

Pleated Ballet Flats

Pleated Ballet Flats
This past Christmas, all of the women in my family got a pair of slippers.  These are wonderful for throwing in your suitcase so you don't have to walk on questionable hotel carpeting.  Make them out of something washable and you can just throw them in the laundry when you get home.  Voila!  I applied some puffy paint to the balls and heels of these so they have a little traction...learned that from the sticky socks at the hospital.

The pattern is easy to follow, true to size, and knits up very quickly.  I made about 6 pair last year and had a delightful time.

Pattern: "Pleated Ballet Flats" by Coco Knits
Yarn: Mostly used Worsted Cotton by Blue Sky Alpacas
