Origami Slippers Knitting Pattern

Origami Slippers Knitting Pattern- a beginner friendly pattern that comes together like magic!

Origami Slippers Knitting Pattern

I’ve always been fascinated by Origami. It’s amazing how something one dimensional can be transformed into complex shapes by some simple folds! Origami isn’t just limited to paper- it can also work with knits (and fabric too, but that’s a post for another day!).

These slippers look complicated, but they’re actually easy to make! 16 same-size squares are knit (8 for each slipper), then they are joined together, folded over and sewn.

How to Assemble the Slippers

Sew the squares together in the following pattern.

To create the slipper, match the letters up and sew the sides together. Make sure you go in order- starting with the letter “A”, otherwise it’s easy to get mixed up! After you sew the letter “B” together you will see the slipper starting to take shape. After this point, I found that it’s easier to place the slipper on your foot and finish sewing that way.
