A simple adult-sized slipper, worked in one piece. Can be left plain, or optionally embellished with flowers.

Flowers require small amounts of red, brown and dark green yarn. DPNs needed for (i-cord) leaf stems.

September 2010: I’ve uploaded a new version of the pattern PDF which corrects a long-standing error with a couple of rows (noted below), which has now been corrected. I’ve also included some notes about sizing, and more pictures to assist with sewing up/assembly. I’m really thrilled with the number of variations people have come up with the pattern, well done to you all! :-D

If you do not have the file ‘plain-flowery-slippers-0910.pdf’ (released 04 September 2010), you do not have the latest version of the pattern. The following errata relates to the previous versions of the pattern - please note this, or download the pattern again to get the new version.

Errata: Rows 60-73 should be repeats of row 58 and 59 (ie. decreasing every second row until 34 stitches remain; the opposite of the increases on the other side).
