If you're still not satisfied with these free knitted slipper patterns, then you'll love these 11 Free Knitted Slipper Patterns + 2 Knit Slippers for Christmas.






  1. Draw 8” end through remaining sts and pull up tightly, then sew with large plastic needle from beginning of ribbing to form toe. Fold cast on edge in half and sew inside seam for center back.
  2. Make 2 pom-poms and tie to each front side tightly and knot to inside of slipper. You will notice that the pom-poms on the brown pair of slippers were not cut but just folded and tied in the center. The pom-poms on the pink pair were cut and laid down in a half circle and then the heart button was sewn on. Get creative with the buttons and pom-poms and make each more unique.
