I am a hand knitter, crocheter, machine knitter, and have recently begun using a circular sock machine (csm). I manufacture some hard-to find knitting accessories such as the multiple yarn twister/winder, machine knitters GARTER BARS, mini garter bars, and needle stoppers. I also write and sell CUT-SEW-FELT Patterns using recycled sweaters, as well as hand-knitting & crochet patterns.
I LOVE to hand knit most of all. Easy projects are my game as we travel quite a bit and I love to knit no-brainers. oh yeah, and as you can see by my patterns.....I am the slipper Queen!
Check out my blog where I have many FREE patterns: auntekristy.blogspot.com

Easier Clogs for Wm & Men
Perfect for just slipping into and being comfy. Makes perfect gift items and also work up fast for craft show/bazaar items. As with all my patterns feel free to make an sell as many as you like!
These slippers work up relatively quickly. You will use 2 strands of worsted weight wool held together throughout. First the outer sole is knit, then the inner sole is knit, then the two are joined. You then continue on to knit the slipper top. There is seaming at the end but it is very easy whip-stitching. The slippers are then felted. This style of slipper has a bit more room in the toes, they are not narrow.
You may use up to three colors of yarn; one for the outer sole, one for the inner sole, and one for the slipper top. Outer and inner sole can be the same color if you want, or you can, of course, use the same color all throughout.
You will need 2 size 11 needles (if you don't have 2 you can slip sts temporarily onto another needle no problem). You will also need a size H crochet hook. There are a few (less than a dozen) sc's and slip sts at the very end of the slipper, so basic crochet skills are needed.
12 sts & 17 rows = 4" with worsted wt yarn held double in stockinette st.
