Style these slipper boots three different ways … fully buttoned, folded over, or buttoned down. Keep your feet comfy and classy through fall, winter, and spring!

These slippers boast a convertible cuff, comfy double-knit sole, and seamless construction with short row shaping (using the German Short Rows method - full instructions included in pattern). First work the toe, then the sole, shoe back, short row shaped upper, and finally the moss stitch cuff!

NOTE: This pattern uses the double knit stitch (as opposed to double knitting). It’s not difficult and creates a great, thick and squishy sole!

Techniques used: Provisional CO, German Short Rows, Kitchener St, I-Cord BO & CO, working flat, working in the round.

S (M, L, XL) to fit women’s US shoe size 5-6 (7-8, 9-10, 11-12)
Fits Foot Length: 8.75” (9.5”, 10”, 10.75”)
Approximate Finished Sole Length: 7.75” (8.5”, 9”, 9.75”)

NOTE: These slippers are designed with negative ease to comfortably mold to the foot. The model is wearing size L (and has 10” long, US 10 feet). For the most accurate fit, choose the size based on your foot length.

Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky Superwash:
C1 (Grey): 185 (200, 215, 245) yds / 170 (185, 200, 225) m
C2 (Black): 70 (75, 80, 90) yds / 65 (70, 75, 85) m

Note: If substituting yarn, please note that this yarn is thinner than a traditional bulky yarn. It knits up more like a thick Aran weight yarn. I recommend against using any yarn thinner than Aran weight as you want a dense fabric.
