These slippers are seamless and top down, with no heel to turn and no picking up of stitches or short rows - yet they hug the foot and stay on beautifully. I’ve designed them to have an anatomically correct profile on the side of the foot - a bit shallower at the toe end so they really follow the form of your foot. Now you can follow your feet wherever they take you, without tripping over a sagging slipper.

Sizes
These are actual foot sizes. Choose the size closest to your actual size (the pattern contains negative ease)

Pattern contains
Full written instructions with links to tutorials for cast on and grafting techniques.

Gauge & needles
14 sts to 10cm/4 in over stockinette. I suggest average knitters try 5.5mm/US 9). Pattern is written for circular needles. I think these ones could be worked on DPNs (though I have not tested this, so this is at your own risk!)

Yarn choices and yardage
I used Hayfield Bonus Chunky. Yarn A: colourway 0689 (pink), Yarn B: colourway 0651 (dark blue). This is an acrylic yarn for practicality - but wool or mixed fibres will be fine too.
