Modern slippers…

Well these certainly aren’t your Gramma’s slippers! LOL!! These ones are simple and sleek and easy to knit!

They are knit flat in one piece then sewn together.

Here’s the pattern for them if you want to make a pair, or 3 😉 for yourself. They will fit most average adult feet. To make them larger or smaller, either increase or decrease your stitches by 5.

MATERIALS:

US size 9 straight needles

About 70 yards of chunky weight yarn for BOTH slippers (about 32-35 yards for one).

DIRECTIONS:

Cast on 30 stitches. (If you want, you could knit 2 at one time!)

Knit 22 rows.

Cast off 12 stitches then knit the remaining 17 stitches on your left needle (there will be 1 stitch on your right needle).

Knit 12 rows.

On your next row, knit your 18 stitches then cast on 12 stitches using the single cast on method.

Knit 21 rows.

Cast off.

Working inside out, using a piece of yarn about 24″ long, thread a darning needle, tie the end, pick up all the stitches on the toe of the slipper and gather it together loosely. Then seam the toe, bottom and heel. Turn right side out, and they’re ready to wear! 😀

I used Red Heart Soft Essential yarns for my slippers.

Well I hope you get a chance to make a pair! They’re the perfect quick project and great great for using up your scrap yarn!

Happy knitting!
