The Design

“Shoes off, slippers on!”

A basket near the front door heaped with these Family Slippers makes for the warmest of welcomes. Our version of these nostalgic slippers evolved from several versions of the pattern found in every auntie’s knitting bag. We finessed the toe a little but left the heel in its simplest form. Embellish your slippers with pom-poms, tassels or buttons—or try our split cuff for a preppy Oxford shirt look. It’s so easy!

We chose to knit our slippers in Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted, doubled. A sleeper favorite, we love the hardy durability and cushy comfort of this worsted weight, single spun yarn. And using two strands together means even more sturdy squish! Take a look at the Lamb’s Pride color palette—you’ll find a range of rich classics, heathers and fun accents.

We’ve provided the measurements for three finished sizes; small, medium and large. You’ll need one skein of Lamb’s Pride Worsted for the small size, and two skeins for the medium and large sizes.

The Details

FINISHED SIZES
Small: 6½"/16.5cm length, fits up to 8½"/22cm foot.
Medium: 8"/20cm length, fits up to 10"/25cm foot.
Large: 9½"/24cm length, fits up to 11½"/29cm foot.
Note: These slippers actually fit a wide range of sizes but the more they stretch to fit, the better they stay on! If you’d like to adjust the length, the heel should be about two-thirds of the total length and the toe about one-third.
Directions given for small size; medium and large sizes in parentheses ( ).

YARN
1 (2, 2) skeins Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted (190 yds/174m each). Or approximately 150 (200, 300)yds / 137 (183, 274)m of a medium or heavy worsted-weight yarn.
Samples shown: size small in color Spice with ¾" pom-poms; size large in color Teal Haze with 1⅜" pom-poms in color Creme.

If you opt for the split cuff (not shown), remember to purchase more yarn; the cuff requires 25% more yardage.
Note: yarn is held double throughout, so you can mix colors and yarns.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 8 (5mm) or US 9 (5.5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.
Blunt darning needle to finish.
2 stitch markers.
Pom-pom maker (optional).

GAUGE
Approx. 16 sts = 4"/10cm in garter stitch.

KNITTER'S NOTES
These slippers actually fit a wide range of sizes but the more they stretch to fit, the better they stay on. If you’d like to adjust the length, the heel should be about two-thirds of the total length and the toe about one third.

When knitting the smallest sized slipper, you’ll want to prepare your yarn beforehand. You can either hand wind your single skein into two equally sized balls (weigh the grams on your kitchen scale!) or pull from both ends of the wound ball.
