1. Simple Slippers by Melissa Stajda
You can easily knit a pair of the Simple Slippers for anyone in your family with an adult-sized foot (the pattern includes three sizes!). The slippers use an aran-weight yarn, which helps you knit them up quickly. You can start and finish a pair in an afternoon, or complete two or three pairs over a weekend. Use a speckled or hand-dyed yarn to fancy them up without any extra work—the yarn does it for you. Just pick a different color for each person you’re knitting for, and crank out several pairs in no time!
