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.
2 skeins worsted weight yarn (preferably wool)
1 pair #8 straight needles
Gauge: 4 stitches = 1 inch
Size: Teenager to Adult
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

Repeat rows for 2 1/2″ – 3″.

Slip them on your feet and fill the warmth!
