Knitted Cozy Slippers

knit slipper pattern
These handmade knitted slippers are beginner friendly. I used Phentex Slipper and Craft Yarn that makes these slippers feel durable and warm. With this pattern we can personalize each of the slippers by choosing different colour combinations. The slipper stretches, so keep this in mind when you are casting on.

These cozy knitted slippers can be customized depending on the size of the feet. I have given three sizes as a guide, however change the cast on number depending on the feet size. I usually do a couple of rows and check the width of the feet.

Cast on by holding all three yarn at the same time by a leaving a long thread to sew up the back end of the slipper. Knit loosely or it would be hard to work the last few rows of knit together working with six strings of yarn.

For a medium size cast on 24 
7K, 1P, 8K, 1P, 7K

For a large size cast on 27
8K, 1P, 9K, 1P, 8K

For a small size cast on 21 and follow the pattern below.
Row1: 6 Knit,  1 Purl, 7 Knit, 1 Purl, 6 Knit
Row 2: Knit the next row

Continue till desired length depending on the length of the feet.  

Then Knit two together and reduce until one stitch is left on the needle. This part might feel tight and difficult so it is important to knit loosely.  
Keep some thread to sew the top part of the slipper and cut the thread. Put the thread through the left over stitch and pull. 
Thread the tapestry needle through the yarn, you can use one thread of all three to secure and whip stitch to close the top part from the wrong side.

Weave in the end. 

Thread the tapestry needle through the yarn from the cast on side to close the heel and weave in the end. 

Turn the slipper to the right side. 

We can stitch pompoms to the top of the slipper.

  1. I just bought a pair at a craft sale.

  2. These are so cute. My daughter wants to try and make a pair.

  3. I have always wanted to learn how to knit...I just don't think I am that creative.

  4. My great aunt made these for me when I was little. This style always reminds me of her. Love it.

  5. We use to wear them when I was growing up! Thank you for the pattern! Now I need to find the Phentex yarn.

    1. Carole this yarn is available at Walmart and sometimes at Michaels

  6. The picture shows 2 colors but you say to hold 3 yarns together. Is this right? Or should it be hold 2 yarns together. It seems like it would be pretty thick with 3 strands together.

    1. I used two of the same colour and one contrasting colour. Yes it is thick and towards the end finishing the knitting can become a little hard. The slippers last longer this way and better than the store bought ones.

  7. Good morning - you say size 5 needles - 5 mm? Trying to get some quick holiday knitting done
