Row 2: K9 (11-13), *P1,K9(11-13), repeat from *once more.

Shape Toe

Row 1: P1, *K1,P1, repeat from *across row

Row 2: K1 *P1,K1, repeat from *across row

Repeat these 2 rows until you have 12 rows (14-16) then work row 1 once more, cut off yarn leaving an 8” end.



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.

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.

Row 4 states to repeat rows 1 2 for 19 ridges formed, which would be incorrect. I believe it's intended to repeat rows 2 3.

These are almost identical to the slippers my grandmother used to make, and one of two projects she used to teach me to knit. I'm very happy to find the pattern, so I can make them again.

Hello again, I have just finished the slippers and sew the back.When the sewing is finished it looked like the one in the picture. I guess I should have finished it all the way before I complain. It makes sense now. Thanks

Hi... I have made this slippers but I don't get how the back should come together. In the picture backs look round. How do you get a rounded back from three parts we knitted? Thanks

Hi... I am thinking of making a pair of these but am wondering about the sizing, I haven't seen much about it.. What size would a large fit? I'm wanting to make a pair for my boyfriend, and he's a size 12.5-13.. would the large fit him?


Aug 3, 2014

Hi I was wondering if these are for kids or not Thanks
