"I’m having fun making modifications to the original "Better Dorm Boots" Slippers pattern. This one I call “Deluxe” because they are super warm and comfy - they take a wee bit more time because of the fold over cuff but are so worth it. These slippers have a nice fitted look and don't slip off your heels! I made the blue ones in one color but you could change it up and make the cuff and sole a different color than the foot area."

These are really cute boots and I would love to try them, but the pattern is confusing me because it isnt clear as to whether we use straight needles, circular needles, or double pointed needles. Some of the sections say to turn and some of them dont. They are seemed together, so I am assuming straight needles would be ok. Clarification would be very helpful.

The pattern is knit on TWO straight needles. When it says turn, it means exactley that. Turn and leave the rest of the row of stitches without knitting them.This helps with the shaping. Hope this helps.-)

The slippers are knit flat, so straight or circulars can be used. The turn instructions are necessary for the shaping, it is a common knitting technique known as short row shaping, you will work are some of the stitches of the row back and forth until all of the stitches are later incorporated back into the pattern, after the shaping is complete.
