from French Press Knits

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • basic increase
  • basic decrease

Pattern Description:

Constructed more like a shoe than a sock, these felted slippers will keep you stylish AND comfortable! Also great for gifts, as it is a very quick project!

This pattern is written with a lot of details and pictures, it even includes instructions for felting. My goal was to make it available to all types of knitters. Written with full felting instructions. You can also find seaming video tutorials at my blog: http://frenchpressknits.blogspot.com/2010/01/bickford-seam-video-tutorial.html

Sizes included in instructions: S (5/6), M (7/8), L (9/10). If you would like smaller or larger this would not be hard to do to- the pattern is very simplistic with size changes.

Although a top-loader washing machine is recommended, the pattern has been tried in a European Front-Loader(lower agitation, can't always control the whole cycle). It can work, but it is less predictable and may take a longer amount of time.


8 stitches and 14 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size S (5/6)
  • Size M (7/8)
  • Size L (9/10)
  • pattern easily adjusted to accommodate larger/smaller sizes


  • 300 yards worsted weight wool
  • size 15 US (10.0mm) knitting needles
  • darning needle
  • tapestry needle
  • pillowcase (recommended for machine felting)

You Will Also Need:

  • buttons
  • anti-slip bottoms (recommended)
