These slippers are a new take on my Short-Row Felted Slipper pattern. I still love the old pattern, but this version is a little faster and easier to work. I have turned out a pair in less than 4 hours. So, if you have a Sunday morning, you could whip up a pair, too. These slippers are also more structured than my previous version. I think I solved the problem many people had of the sides and back of the slipper flattening out. If the sides still collapse, add a few tightly-sewn stitches at the join between the top and sides of the slipper. That should help shore it up. Blocking after felting will help, too. All shoe sizes are given in the women's American sizing system. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl GAUGE Gauge, before felting: 10 stitches/4 inches Gauge, after felting: 13 stitches/4 inches Size, before felting: 10 inches long, 5.5 inches wide at widest point Size, after felting: 9.25 inches long, 4.25 inches wide at widest point. This fits a woman's foot from about size 6 to size 9 (see pattern notes for more information about sizes). SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS women's shoe size 6 to 9 SUGGESTED YARN 274 yards of Bulky weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Bulky, held double

Supplies Needed

  • These must be made in a yarn that will felt. Bulky yarn will work, if it is held double. Superbulky yarn will work, held single. (5 different yarns are listed in the pattern notes.)
  • I used #11 needles, but some of the testers got gauge with #13 needles.
  • For the last step, if you are using straight needles, you will need a spare doublepointed or circular needle, of any size that is not larger than your working needle. One test knitter noted that using double-pointed needles allowed her to pull more tightly when slipping stitches, which kept the sides of her slippers more vertical.
