After a bit of a slipper hiatus, I’m back! And after a lot of internal debate, I decided to make this pattern FREE! It just seemed like the right thing to do. I hope you enjoy it.

 

I designed these bootie slippers to be as easy to knit as possible. They are knit flat with no extra needles or special techniques required. If you know how to cast on, purl and knit you will be more than capable of finishing these for yourself or someone else!

 

The pattern is written to fit feet from a ladies size 6 – 12 and a man’s 5 – 12. I’m still on the fence as whether to design these to fit children. The sizing involves a lot of math and knitting sample sizes and I’m really not too excited about taking on either of those tasks. Let me know if you want it for kids. If there’s enough of you out there, I’ll do it.

Hints and Tips

When starting the slipper, leave a long length of yarn when casting on. You can use this length to sew up the back seam of the slipper and will give less ends to sew in when done.

 

Work in the ends and don’t just knot them off. The knots will rub on the wearer’s foot and make them decidedly uncomfortable.

 

When sewing the seams, be sure to yank on them a bit before working in the ends. You want as much yarn securing the seams so that the seam will stretch the length of the foot and the ankle.

 

When casting off for the ankle, be sure to do so loosely. It will allow the seam to stretch.

 

In case you’re not sure what part of the slipper you are making and how it goes together, I’ve added some pictures that will help.

 

How it goes together. Fold it in half and sew the seams for the toe and ankle.
