Arne & Carlos Favorite Designs, published by Trafalgar Square Books. This book features Scandinavian style knitting and crochet patterns for 8 different pairs of slippers plus socks, Christmas stockings and much more.

Er, well, the truth is, I haven’t looked at every, single available book on the topic of slipper knitting patterns. I am sure there are some really good ones that have escaped my attention. But, out of all the knitting pattern books I have seen, my current favorite pick for the best slipper knitting patterns is Arne & Carlos Favorite Designs. Why? I LOVE the multicolored, felted and retro styles presented in the book.

This book includes the following 8 slipper knitting patterns:

  1. Slippers with motifs from an old scrapbook – They’re vaguely Native-American themed, and the brown, red, green, blue, yellow and white colorway is retro-1970s.
  2. Rabbit and carrot slippers – These cute orange slippers each have a bunny and carrot design stitched on the upper. Cute, cute, cute!
  3. Slippers with art deco flowers – These are knitted slippers decorated with crocheted flower appliqués.
  4. Slippers bordered with tulips – These are thick ankle-length slipper socks that are decorated with gorgeous tulip motifs.
  5. Rose slippers – Lovely, vintage-inspired roses are embroidered onto these slippers with duplicate stitch.
  6. Knitted Christmas Stockings: These aren’t the sort of stockings you’d hang by the chimney with care; they’re the kind you’d wear on your feet on Christmas morning. They have Christmas tree and gift motifs embroidered onto them with duplicate stitch. These would make fantastic Christmas gifts for everyone on your gift list this year!
  7. Chevron pattern slippers – Chevrons are super trendy right now, and these slippers are right in style – despite a vaguely retro looking colorway.
  8. Kautokeino Slippers – These tall, felted slipper socks look super cozy and warm.

There are also patterns for socks, long socks, a scarf, sweaters and bunches of other items – an astounding total of 80 patterns all together! (In comparison, the average knitting pattern book usually has about 20-25 patterns in it.)
