Home Slippers - DIY

Don’t you just hate it when you have people coming over at your house and you don’t have enough home slippers to give them, in the end being forced to take a vote for who gets the existing pairs? We think that nobody likes that, therefore we came up with a new slippers model that will take only a few hours to make and will look really great on your guests feet.

How to make:
Depending on the desired size of the slippers, you have to calculate the number of loops and rows, based on the pattern (the first picture below ). There are no English instructions to make this slippers, Russian only. So, we tried to explain the pattern in the following directions: ”You need to start putting 16 meshes on the knitting needle, knit 15 rows then add 31 meshes to the left, knit another 15 rows, decrease 15 meshes from the left and add 15 meshes on the right then continue knitting 15 rows more and close up. Now fold the left corner with 31 meshes towards the 47 meshes edge. After that fold what is left of the 47 meshes edge towards the left side closing the slipper top side. The final step is to take the 15 rows left and stitch them to the 15 rows that previously folded to form the heel area. ” If you find the directions are not properly explained or they doesn’t work for you, check out the second step by step set of pictures and get inspired. Good luck!

  1. Folks,
    Your pattern for Home Slippers does not work. I used a size 5 mm needle and worsted weight yarn and the dimensions were completely out of whack. The folds as pictured left gaping holes as the edges did not match up as shown in your pictures. What size needle and weight of yarn was used in the prototype shown on the web site? What gauge is needed to make the pattern so it will fold properly? I would like to make several pairs of these slippers, but unfortunately, this is impossible without the necessary information.

    1. Hello!
      Sorry to hear that! Please, check out the article again and see the updates we made! Hope you will find a way to make the slippers!
      Good luck!

  2. Hi I’m having the same issue as above …. My folds don’t work and does not give me that shape… Seems like adding 31sts is a bit too much….

    Thanks

  3. So the pattern has some issues, but I am a knitting genius and figured it out anyhow. Here is a version that your knitters can read:

    Cast on 15 stitches
    Knit 30 rows (the number of rows in each section of the pattern above should be doubled)
    At the end the 30th row, cast on an additional 31 stitches. (I like the cable cast in for this)
    Knit 30 rows.
    At the beginning of row 61, cast off 15 stitches, knit 30 stitches, cast on 15 stitches. (46 stitches on needle)
    Knit 30 rows.
    Bind off all stitches.
    Use single crochet to seam together as per images.

    Some additional notes: I used worsted weight yarn doubled on a US size 7 needle for a tight and squishy fabric. This fits a men’s size 12 foot.
    They turned out a bit pointy but the man-person reports that they are warm and cosy.

  4. If you are a knitting genius why would you say cast on 15 stitches when the photo clearly show only 10 stitches in the photos?

  5. Also someone kindly translated the pattern, took the time to post and the blog host deleted? And now you show new directions?

  6. According to the text size depends on the intended size. According to the pictures each square has an edge of 6 cm, which means 2.36 (approximatelx 2 3/8) inches.

    1. My estimate:

      6 cm (2 3/8 in) squares for really small women’s feet.

      7 cm (2 3/4 in) squares for average women’s or small men’s feet.

      8 cm (3 1/8 in) squares for large women’s or average men’s feet.

      9 cm (3 1/2 in) squares for large men’s feet.

  7. Thank you for your lovely slipper pattern, perfect for beginners. I have friends from the Czech republic and Romania and they count Knitting rows differently from the UK. The two rows it takes to make one wavy line of garter stitch is classed as one row, ”there and back’. Just a lost in translation moment I think.

  8. Thank you so much for sharing. They are really cute.
    I tried to make this but it did not go very well for The first time. I guess it would be better if we go by measurements, sometimes 16 meshes are not as long as 15 rows. it would be better to stop counting and start measuring the length.

  9. I love this pattern. My first pair were small, like a toddler size, so I doubled the yarn, used the 5.0mm and it fits my size 8 – USA foot cozy nice. I think any origami type piece is reliant on gauge and yarn thickness. The ratings do not seem to be the same for example on different yarns labeled worsted.

  10. Hello, me too am fond of knitting,after reading all the comments,my opinion it will be better to give the length of each step in centimeters ,I guess it will be easy to follow coz it depends on our yarn we r using.(i.e.) all rows in centimeters,hope u will not mind my point of view,Thks to all my knitting lovers👍😻😻😻.God bless the one who try to translate it in English,love n kissesssssss.

  11. All you have to do is use google translate and if you know basic knitting terms you should be able to follow through. Below is the translated version:

    1. Dial 10 loops on the spoke.

    2. To knit with garter stitch 16 rows – 6 cm. It turns out the square 6 * 6

    3. To dial additionally to the spoke 19 loops.

    4. Knit 16 rows – 6 cm.

    5. Close 9 loops from one edge.

    6. From the other side, add 9 loops.

    7. Knit 16 rows – 6 cm. And then close all the loops.

    8. Bind the symmetrical part.

    9. Start slippers to connect.

    10. We tie the socks with the “slipper’s step”.

    11. We continue to connect “step by step”, bending the detail of the slipper.

    12. We bind to bending

    13. Then add a little heel slipper.

    14. Together we are tying the tongue and the heel 1-1.5 cm.

    15. We bend the heel and tie the tongue.

    16. Without reaching a bend of 1-1.5 cm, we connect the tongue and the heel and tie it together by connecting the bottom of the heel to the base. Crop thread.

    17. Tie the upper edge of the heel.

    18. Slippers are ready.

    19. By analogy we knit a second slipper.
