Free Pattern Friday: Simple House Slippers (again)

I blogged this free pattern back in July but I think it’s much more appropriate to post it now – there’s nothing quite like a pair of cozy hand knit slippers when the weather takes a sharp left towards winter…

These Simple House Slippers by Simone Alexandra are as easy to wear as they are to knit. The pattern is knit flat at the back (garter stitch) and then in the round for the rest of the foot (stockinette).  The toe has a very rounded shape like the top of mittens making these look and feel more like real slippers than house socks.  Cozy and classic.  Start now and knit a bunch of these in time for holiday gift-giving (yes, I really said that – it’s never too soon to get started)!

Suitable for beginners as well as more advanced knitters looking for an in-between project.

One size fits most (easily adjustable).

I knit this pair last Saturday with Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky and have been wearing them at home ever since! Quick, easy, and oh, so satisfying.

    The pattern calls for DK weight yarn and I noticed that you used chunky weight. Was there an adjustment in the number of stitches?

      No, I just knit the pattern as written. I thought a denser fabric for slippers would be a good idea. I 4.5 mm needles. Note that Tosh Chunky is more of a heavy worsted / aran weight (16 – 18 sts / 4 “) than a true chunky (14 sts / 4”).
      Hope this helps!
