    Knit your own Tardis Slippers

    Hello.I already know how to make slippers but love your idea for Tardis Slippers. I think these will make a perfect Christmas gift for my sister. I have figured out a method to make nicer heels for your slippers. I start with casting on 23 stitches. The first row is k10 p1 k1 p1 k10. For the second row I knit both the front and back of the knit in-between the purls to increase it to two. ie k10 p1 k2 p1 k10. Next I increase on the first and last of the in-between knits in this case both of them. ie k10 p1 k4 p1 k10. And so on until you have 10 knits between the purls, or the slipper is the desired width. This makes for a nice rounded heel once you sew the sides up. I've added a photo from an old set I made a while ago. Hopefully it's helpful. Also bow ties are cool......
