Hints and Tips

I've written the pattern to divide the rows up into sections of the slipper. You'll see where certain stitches line up to form a crease (between the cuff and side of the slipper) and definitive lines that demarcate the sole of the slipper. I debated whether to write it as a more traditional pattern with running all the same stitches together (ie. K7 instead of K4 K1 K2) but felt it would be easier for a less experienced knitter to see what stitches were forming the different parts of the pattern.


A good way to think of the pattern is in groups (hence the spacing). How I thought of it when designing these slippers was 4 rows formed bottom half of the plaid pattern. The other 4 rows form the top half of the plaid pattern. The 8 rows together formed one repeat. Not sure if that helped anyone but it made it very easy for me to figure out where to put in the repeat marks.


If your K2tog for the second to last row is off, no worries. If there's 2 stitches, knit them together. It's not a big deal and it won't make a noticeable difference.


If you need a larger size slipper than what I've written for, you can add more knitting rows onto the end of the toe. If your gauge is correct, 4 rows of knitting will add approximately 1/2” or 1.75cm.
