What you need to know

Feel every bit the princess in these fantastic ruby slippers

Karen, Luise Roberts' superb 'ruby slipper' socks, designed exclusively for Let's Knit magazine, are perfect for making you feel really dreamy! This fun design, worked with two straight needles, is an excellent way to develop your colourwork skills and create a really fantastic finished knit. With so many experienced knitters calling out for more challenging projects, this design is more involved to build your skills. To make it more manageable we have broken it down in to two parts, so you don't feel daunted! Get stuck in with Part One this month and complete your socks with Part Two in next month's issue.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
