One very popular knitted gift is the Grandma's Slippers pattern, and Kelley found ways to improve upon it! Mrs. Hupps' Slippers is a free pattern by Kelley that uses Judy's Magic Cast-On to make her variation a breeze to knit in one piece.

In the video below, see how Kelley executes this unique construction so you can get your own pair done in no-time at all! Plus, the pattern uses chunky yarn – so you can quickly make pair after pair for gifts!
