I have a FREE pattern for you! I can’t tell you how many of these slippers I made this winter, but it was ALOT! They’re simple to make, and the perfect gift for just about anyone. They’re also a great project if you’re just learning to knit, because you only need to know how to cast on, knit and purl. I taught a handful of girlfriends to knit these slippers this winter and if they can do it I know you can too!
I call this pattern Grandma’s Knit Slipper Pattern because these are the exact slippers my Grandma would knit for us when we were kids. Now I know why she was always making them for us, because they’re so fun to knit and even more fun to give!
The pattern pdf includes a list of materials needed, clear instructions, and photos for each step. I even explain how to figure out what size to make your slippers for a custom fit each time.
Not only does knitting bring you the benefits of relaxation and the joy of creating, but to be able to give hand knit items to others is the icing on the cake and the cherry on top of it all! Join me in bringing back the tradition of hand knit slippers, just like Grandma used to make!
When you do end up making your own Grandma’s Knit Slippers, don’t forget to tag me on instagram @emily_bluecorduroy, because I want to see your works in progress and finished project photos! It’s always so fun to be inspired by what other people are making and putting their own spin on!
