A very satisfying quick and easy pattern for classic slippers to keep you, your friends and family’s feet warm and cozy.

I have wanted to rewrite this pattern for so long and finally it is exactly what I want it to be! I have incorporated all the feedback I’ve gotten since I published the first version and have among other things added multiple sizes, a guide on how to find the right size for knitting slippers for other people and expansive descriptions for (optional) finishing techniques that will make the slippers neater and stronger.

Pattern Info

Final slipper circumference

Fits foot circumference of
22–24 (24.5–26, 26.5–28) cm / 8½ –9½ (9½ –10½, 10½ –11½)”

The sizes increase the circumference of the foot and the length of the ankle opening. The length of the foot is decided during knitting by trying it on to get the comfiest fit.
