Knitting Needle Set Giveaway & Free Adjustable Slipper Pattern!

Hi friends!  Today I am going to share an easy recipe for knitted slippers! This is a quick gift any knitter can whip up in time for Christmas AND a fun project for a new knitter to try! By the Way I have a 20% off coupon code: Q6B4EYWQ for the knitting needle set I used from Fabart (the coupon can be used on anything in the Fabart Amazon store too and they can ship in time for Christmas!)

Watch the video to see how and then check out the pattern and diagram at the end of this post for written instruction. Rather than just giving you a pattern I want to teach you how to make these slippers to fit your foot and how to alter the pattern for different yarn you may want to use.

Video!

Find the set of interchangeable knitting needles I used from our sponsor FABART and save 20% with coupon code: Q6B4EYWQ

Supplies:

  • Size 9 knitting needles
  • Super bulky yarn (look for a 6 on the label)
  • Contrasting ribbon or yarn to use as stitch markers
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

Stitches you need to know:
Knit stitch
Purl Stitch
Knit 2 together
*All of these stitches are demonstrated in the video, checkout this video if you need more instruction.

Directions: Use this for a ladies slipper size 6-10 or narrow men’s slipper. Alteration tips below.
1. Cast on 22 stitches.
2.Row 1: Knit7 (place stitch marker) Purl 1, Knit 6 (place stitch marker) Purl 1, Knit 7
3. Row 2: Knit
*Repeat these 2 rows until you have a rectangle of fabric that is as long as the distance from your heel to the widest part of your foot (where the toe knuckles are) I knit this part 8 1/2″ to fit a size 8-9 ladies shoe size.
4. Decreasing for the toe:
Knit 1, Knit 2 together (repeat across row.)
Next row: Knit. Repeat these 2 rows.
5. Knit across as many rows as you need until you have 1/4″ of toe left to cover.
6. Repeat step 4.
7. Cut yarn leaving a 18″ tail, thread yarn into a yarn needle and draw yarn through stitches on the needle. Slide the stitches off the needle and pull tight to close the toe. Fold slipper fabric in half and sew up the toe. Fasten off and weave in ends.
8. Use the tail from the cast on end to sew up the heel, fasten off and weave in ends.

Alterations:
To make a wider slipper add a stitch or two in each knit column. So instead of casting on 22 stitches (k7, p1, k6, p1, k7) you might cast on 25 stitches and k8, p1, k7, p1, k8. Just add stitches evenly and follow the knitting instructions for the rest of the slipper.

To make smaller slippers you can decrease stitches from each column. Alternately you could use thinner yarn and smaller knitting needles so a smaller slipper would not be as bulky. I suggest making notes as you knit the first slipper so you can easily make the second one match. Here is a diagram of how the slipper is constructed and where you can alter the design to change the size.

Giveaway Time!!!

I have an amazing giveaway for you this week from our sponsor Fabart AND a coupon code: Q6B4EYWQ to save 20% ANYTHING in their shop from brushes to knitting needles if you want to buy a set for someone on your Christmas list! Fabart is selling this set of needles for $40 (only $32 with coupon and if you are an amazon Prime member you can get free 2 day shipping so you will have them in time for Christmas!) I have seen sets of aluminum knitting needles from other companies starting at $65 and up! I have used many brands of aluminum knitting needles and these are just as good at a much lower price and the handsome faux leather case makes it an amazing gift for any knitter. Circular needles can be use the same way as straight needles or you can knit in the round with them to make seamless hats and sweaters. They are also wonderful for teaching kids to knit as they fit smaller hands better. You can connect the cords to make larger items like blankets and keep the weight off the needles. You can even use the cords and stoppers that come in the kit as stitch holders. When you get this set of interchangeable knitting needles you are essentially getting nine pairs of straight needles size 4-11, nine pairs of 15″, 25″ and 30″ circular needles. And you can connect three of the cords to make large seamless blankets and throws. It can get expensive when you first get started knitting but this set will see you through most of the patterns you will come across. Leave a comment and let me know if you would rather win the knitting needle set or another product from the Fabart shop (and tell me your pick) and I will draw a winner in one week! Good luck and til next time happy crafting!
