Keep Your Footsies Warm

It has been many years since I have made a pair of knitted slippers and I have never made a pair for me!  I learned to knit while I lived in Colorado and knitted slippers were my second ever knitted endeavor.  These are a little slippery on non-carpeted floors and you could always add some leather to the bottom, but I am just careful when I walk – just like I was wearing socks.

Knitted Slippers

Items Needed

2 skeins worsted weight yarn (preferably wool)
1 pair #8 straight needles
darning needle

Gauge: 4 stitches = 1 inch

Size: Teenager to Adult

1. With 2 strands of yarn, cast on 29 stitches

Sole and Side

Row 1: (WS) Slip 1, K8, P1, K9, P1, K9

Row 2: Slip 1, knit across row

Repeat these two rows for 5″ or 2 1/2″ less than the length of foot. End with a completed Row 1.


Row 1: (RS) P1, *K1,P1, repeat from star to end of row

Row 2: K1, P1, repeat to end of row

Repeat rows for 2 1/2″ – 3″.

Cut yarn leaving an 8″ tail.  Thread yarn into darning needle and slip stitches from knitting needle onto darning needle, twice.  Pull tightly and fasten securely.


1. Sew edges together for 4″ from toe to instep.  Fasten securely.

2. Sew up heel.

3. Weave in all yarn ends.

Slip them on your feet and fill the warmth!

    So glad to have this pattern again. I made these years ago and they are fabulous. You can make pompoms for the top (I never did but the pattern I had showed them that way). Nice job!!

      The pattern I use also has an option to add pom poms, but I have never done it. I love how cushy these are and they definitely keep my feet warm!
