Knit these warm and woolly slippers in just one evening. Knit a pair for a loved one as they make a great home made gift that people adore. I have knit many of these slippers and have only been able to keep one pair myself because as soon as people see them they ask me to make them a pair.
You will need: one pair 5mm knitting needles, darning needle and 3 - 5- gram balls of chunky weight yarn.
CO 2 stitches
1st row - knit
2nd row - inc 1 st in 1st stitch. K1
** Row 3 + 4 - Knit
Row 5 inc 1 st in 1st st. Knit to end of row. **
Repeat from ** to ** until 8 stitches on needle.
Next Row - inc 1 st in 1st stitch. Knit to end of row.
Next Row - inc 1 st in 1st stitch. Knit to end of row. ( Ten stitches now on needle)
Next Row - Knit
Next Row - CO 9 stitches
Next Row - K9 P1 K8 P1
Next Row - CO 9 stitches
Next Row - Knit row.
*** Next Row - K9 P1 K8 P1 K9
Next Row - Knit row. ***
Repeat from *** to *** until side measures from heel of foot to knuckle of big toe.
**** Next Row - K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K8 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1
Next Row - P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K10 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 ****
Repeat those two rows **** to **** 2 more times for a total of 6 rows.
Next Row - Knit all stitches.
Next Row - Knit two together across row. (14 stitches left on needle)
Next Row - Knit
Next Row - Knit two together across row. (7 stitches left on needle)
Break yarn extra long as you will be sewing one of your seams with this yarn.
Attach darning needle to end of broken yarn and draw through remaining seven stitches to remove from needle. With wrong sides together, sew from toe up to about one third of length of slipper. Sew back triangle to both slipper sides. Make two pom poms and attach to slippers.
My late grandmother taught me to knit & make these when I was 8 but I haven't made any for 20+ years. Nice to see the heirloom patterns are being written down and passed along. For the inexperienced knitters who are wondering about changing the size, Grandma traced the wearer's foot on a piece of paper and changed the number of stitches to match the width of the foot.

What does inc 1 st in 1st mean? Can these slippers fit anyone? I want to make them for my parents aniversary present... Also, what does Repeat from ** to ** until 8 stitches on needle mean? I'm a beginner. I have been making scarves now I want to move to sliippers. Whats a darning needle? These are wonderful looking slippers- I want some. Sorry for all the questions.. I am learning knitting from u tube. very good stuff there.
Here's a great site for leaning knitting techniques. http://www.knittinghelp.com/ The *** means that you repeat the sequence of directions in between the set of asterisks until you have the number of stitches required. As far as being a beginner, you obviously know how to use the internet, because you're here learning. So you could just google this stuff. That's what I do when I find something in a pattern I don't understand.
These look so nice and cozy for this coming winter in Wisconsin. Thanks

Those look warm and fuzzy! Thanks for the pattern- I'll give them a shot. We're a shoes-off house, so slippers are a must.
