Toastie Slippers

24 Sep

Wow, it has been a little while since I posted here!

I made some slippers recently to sell at the upcoming advent creative market that takes place in my town every year. I found some great value super bulky yarn and decided to make slippers out of it.

They are basically just very simple toe-up socks with a short row heel. I decided to share the pattern with you my lovely readers… 🙂

Abbreviations:
K – knit
M1 – make 1
P – purl
rd/s – round/s
rep – repeat
st/s – stitch/es
w&t – wrap and turn

Yarn: I used thick and thin super bulky yarn of no known brand. About 60m/65yds for a pair

Gauge:
10 sts x 16 rows for 10cm/4″ of stocking stitch in the round

Size: Woman medium (European 38-40)

Needles:
size 10.0mm/US 15 needles of your choice

Foot

Using a magic toe-up or Turkish cast on, cast on 6 stitches (3 on each needle).

Rd 1: K
Rd 2: *K1, M1, K1, M1, K1*, rep (10 sts)
Rd 3: K
Rd 4: *K1, M1, K3, M1, K1*, rep (14 sts)
Rd 5: K
Rd 6: *K1, M1, K5, M1, K1*, rep (18 sts)
Rds 7-31 (25 rds): K

Heel

The heel is knit only on half the stiches, back and forth

Row 1: K17, w&t
Row 2: P7, w&t
Row 3: K6, w&t
Row 4: P5, w&t
Row 5: K4, w&t
Row 6: P3, w&t
Row 7: K6, picking up the wraps as you find them, wrap the 1st st of the top of the foot and turn
Row 8: P9, picking up the wraps as you find them, wrap the last st of the top of the foot and turn
Row 9: K9

Leg

You are now done with the heel and will resume knitting in the rd on all 18 sts. On the first rd, you will pick up the two wraps make on the first and last sts of the top of the foot, these will close the gap with the heel without creating a hole.

Rds 1-6: K
Rds 7-9: *K1, P1*, rep across

Cast off using a stretchy cast off

Make second slipper (they are identical)
