These are all free patterns
I found while surfing the web.
Most are just basic ones that
you can do as they are or add
your own personal touch. Here's
some music to listen to while
you work. Have fun!

This pattern is a combination of years of trial and error to find the best and easiest way to knit slippers. I use the same pattern for all adults; they stretch to fit all. Even the men like them.
Materials: 4 ply yarn
Needles: size 8 needles
Cast on 45 sts.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: k7, p1, k29, p1, k7
Row 3: k 17, p1, k9, p1, k 17
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have 16 ridges. Cast off 7 sts for two rows. Continue pattern for 10 ridges.
Row 1: k2, k2 tog across; end k3
Rows 2, 3, 4: knit
Row 5: k1, k 2 tog across
Rows 6, 7, 8: knit
Row 9: k2 tog across
Row 10: knit
Cut yarn leaving a 10 inch tail. Thread needle, draw sts tog and sew together the toe section. Then sew the heel edges together.
For quick knitting, I knit two at the same time with 2 skeins of yarn.
Guide note: Although these slippers do stretch quite a bit, if knitting for a woman's size 9 or larger I would knit 14 or more ridges accordingly rather than 10.
