Knitted Moccasin Slippers
The slippers look small when they are not on a foot, so I took a picture of it
on my foot first. They are stretchy.
Here is a picture of the slippers that Olly made. Thank you for sending me the photo, Olly!
Here is a picture of the slippers that Alicia made. Alicia is new to knitting and
this is her first project. Very well done, Alicia! Thank you for the photo!
Here is a picture of the slippers that Julia made. Julia is new to knitting as well but has made
scarves, headbands and wrist/hand warmers but this is the very first time that she's made something for feet.
Great job, Julia! Thanks for sending me the photo!
French Translation of this pattern! Guy Charbonneau (The Guy Who Knits) translated
this pattern into French and put it on his blog.
Here is the direct link to the PDF file of the translated pattern.
Thank you so much Guy!
Yarn: Use two strands of 4 ply worsted weight yarn.
I'm not sure how much it takes as I bought 170 g skeins and had
plenty of yarn leftover.
I knit these slippers in two colors. Black for the sole and light
blue for the rest of the slipper. You can make them all one color
if you want.
Needles: Two 5mm needles. I used circular needles as I find them easier to work with. I used them the
same way I would use the two long 5mm needles. But if you prefer using the two long needles, by all means do so.
SIZE: These will fit a foot of 9 1/2 inches.
For every 1/2 inch larger add 4 stitches when you cast on.
For every 1/2 inch smaller subtract 4 stitches when you cast on.
I will have notes in blue on the pattern for where to add or
subtract stitches for the different sizes.
It will be listed as (S, L) - meaning Small size which is 1/2 inch
smaller and L meaning 1/2 inch larger. For even smaller and larger
sizes, just add or subtract sts from those sizes.
Please note: I have not
tried to make these in different sizes. I am only going by my gauge, I think
it should work out.
Gauge: 4 sts = 1 inch
st - Stitch
K - Knit
P - Purl
K2tog - Knit 2 stitches together
P2tog - Purl 2 stitches together |
inc st - Increase stitch. (I did my increases by picking up a loop between the stitches and
putting it on my left needle, then knitting it.)
This pattern is worked in rows. When completed you will sew up the sole and the back of heel seam.
Important: The slippers are folded in half lengthwise when you are finished, so that
is why the sole seems big at the start.
Just continue working the pattern and when you get to the "Sides
and Top", you will notice it taking shape and see where you sew
the bottom seam and back of heel seam.
