This is a great pattern that is an old classic without clear origins. It’s one of those things that most people my age (or older) had gifted to them from a grandmother or older aunt as a child.

I love classic patterns that continue to be practical in modern times. We may not want to wear the sweater designs of the 60s, 70s or 80s (or maybe we do, considering the rise in popularity of vintage knitting patterns). Still, a slipper never goes out of fashion.

I have seen most versions of this pattern calling for two strands of worsted weight yarn held together to make a thicker yarn, but for my version, I prefer to use my favourite bulky yarn - Loops and Threads Charisma.

Again, this is a super quick knit (especially with the thicker yarn) and super affordable as you can get a pair of small adult slippers from one ball of yarn.

This pattern comes in three sizes - small, medium, and large - but is easily customizable to fit any sized feet.

Again, this is my version of a classic slipper pattern - worked in all garter stitch and using any bulky yarn.
