Modern Mocs {knitting inspiration}

There's not much I enjoy more than helping knitters figure out what to make with Ewe Ewe yarn. We all love yarn and knitting that yarn but sometimes we need a little inspiration about what to knit and in which colors.

I'm here to help!

Last week I got an email after my Socks on Saturday post that said, "How about Slippers on Saturday? Getting closer to Christmas; quickie slippers...ya know, gift worthy items."

You got it, Mardi! Here's some Slippers on Saturday!

Meet the Modern Mocs slipper knitting pattern designed by Bekah Knits. These cozy slip-on booties feature a stylish high cuff that adds even more warmth.

Modern Mocs have a thick, double-knit sole and even boast a seamless construction. The pattern is very well written and features lots of tips and tricks about to make these slippers including detailed photos throughout! 

Can you tell I'm ready to cast on a pair RIGHT NOW?!

What colors can I use to make slippers?

Designed using a bulky-weight yarn, the Modern Mocs are the perfect fit for Ewe Ewe's Baa Baa Bulky washable merino yarn!

I pulled together six color combinations that I think would work well and I'm sure there are 100 more, too! I chose a light or bright color for the slipper tops and a dark or neutral color for the slipper sole.

1. Vanilla + Charcoal

Similar to the original design, Baa Baa Bulky colors Vanilla and Charcoal would look great and be a classic color way any one would love to receive! 

2. Cotton Candy + Forest Fern

Sweet pink pairs with a dark evergreen to make a stunning color combination that's perfect for the girly nature lover in your life!

3. Berry + Red Velvet

Want a punch of color? Go for this bright pink and dark red combo!

4. Aquamarine + Teal

Coming in cool as a cucumber is this light aqua and dark greenish color. I love how this Aquamarine brightens up the deeper Teal.

5. Citrus Pop + Indigo

Add some pizzaz to your house slippers with a really fun shade of highlighter yellow! Bright citrus combines with our deep indigo purple to make a fun combination.

6. Sky Blue + Wheat

Cool and calming, this combination of light blue and camel is lovely and classic. Great for any lucky recipient!
