How to Cast On
How to Knit
How to Bind Off / Cast Off

Size information: Size results given here are approximate. Your final size results may differ slightly from ours depending on how tight or how loose your knit stitches are.

  • Small Size - Approx. Child Shoe Size 1 and Smaller
  • Medium Size - Approx. Child Shoe Size 2 to Women's Size 7
  • Large Size - Approx. Women's Size 8 and Larger

Read sizes in this pattern as shown here; 40 is small, 44 is medium and 54 is large; 40(44, 54)

Instructions for knitting your slippers:

  • Cast on 40(44, 54) stitches.
  • Knit every row until the piece measures 4.5(5, 5.5) inches.
  • Next row, cast off the first 5(7, 9) stitches and knit to row end.
  • Next row, again cast off the first 5(7, 9) stitches and knit to row end.
  • Next row, cast off the first 3(3, 3) stitches and knit to row end.
  • Next row, again cast off the first 3(3, 3) stitches and knit it row end.
  • Knit every row for 2.5(3, 4) more inches after the last 3 stitches were cast off.
  • Knit 2 stitches together 12(12, 14) times. [12(12, 14) stitches remain]
  • Knit next row.
  • Knit 2 stitches together 6(6, 7) times. [6(6, 7) stitches remain]


  • Cut yarn about 18 inches from finished knitting and thread the end of the yarn with the yarn needle. (If you cannot get this thick yarn through your yarn needle, simple use a crochet hook in its place to pull the yarn through.
  • Remove the knitting needle from the remaining stitches and send the yarn needle through all the stitch loops. Pull tight. This will bring the ending edge together and start to create the toe of the slipper. (photo 2 above)
    • To stitch the slipper together use a looping method; To do this, first, line up the left and right edges that you wish to stitch together, then send the yarn in a circular direction through the edges on each side to join them as shown in the photo at right. Pull snug with each loop or circle stitch. Repeat working along the open edges that you are connecting.
  • Continue stitching the slipper together from the toe up to the top edge. Knot the end and trim the extra yarn.
  • Line up the back sides of the slipper. Thread another piece of yarn (or use the crochet hook and some yarn) and stitch up the back of the slipper from the heel to the top edge. Knot the end and trim the extra.
  • Fold the top edge over to form the cuff.

Done!
These are really cozy slippers because of the soft and cuddly yarn that is used to make them. Make slippers for everyone on your list this holiday!
