I made slippers because I thought that there would be a need for them. More comfort than just a sock and better than walking around the house in shoes all day.

It took me some time to actually make a pair and I only did because my mom found a free pattern online. Well that pattern sort of worked but I made one that was much better for me.

The pattern goes …

Cast on 28sts

Row 1(RS): k
Row 2(WS): k10, pm, p8, pm, k10

Repeat rows 1 and 2, 13 times for a total of 28 rows

Row 29(RS): k
Row 30(WS): p

Repeat 4 times for a total of 10 rows

Row 39(RS): k2tog across the whole row
Row 40 : p
Row 41 : k2tog across the whole row

Leave a long tail and thread onto tapestry needle. Thread remaining sts onto needle and pull tight. Seam across the stockinette and the cast on side for the heel. You could even add a pompom if you like.

I wear a size 9 and these fit me well but I think they would fit a size up or a size down.
