Knitted Slippers for Children

I am now retired and would love to knit slippers for my grandchildren. Does anyone have a pattern to pass along? Thanks.

Aunt Maggie's Slippers

Instructions are for Child' Size with changes for Women's & Men's in parentheses.

Size 9 (10.5 for men) knitting needles and 3 oz of worsted weight yarn.

1 strand Gauge: 4 sts= 1 inch 8 rows--4 ridges= 1 inch 2 strand gauge: 3.5 sts= 1 inch 7 rows= 1 inch

Slippers can be worked in single or double strand, but I prefer double for extra warmth.

Cast on 27 (29-35) sts

ROW 1: - wrong side - K9 (9-11), p1, k7 (9-11), p1, k9, (9-11).

ROW 2: K all sts.

Repeat these 2 rows for 5 (6-8) ins., or 2 (2 1/2-2 1/2) ins. less than desired finished length allowing the 2 (2 1/2-2 1/2) ins. for toe, end on wrong side.


ROW 1: P 1, *k1, p1; repeat from * to end.

ROW 2: K1, *p1, k1; repeat from * to end.

Repeat these 2 rows of ribbing for 1 1/2 (2-2) ins., end on wrong side.

First DEC. ROW: Work ribbing for 7 (7-9) sts, * slip, k and psso, k1, k2 tog. *, work 3 (5-7) sts ribbing, repeat between *'s once, finish row in ribbing; 23 (25-31) sts.

NEXT ROW: Work 7 (7-9) sts ribbing, p3, work 3 (5-7) sts ribbing, p3, finish row.

2nd DEC ROW: Work 6 (6-8) sts, * k2 tog., k1, slip, k and psso *, work 1 (3-5) sts, repeat between *'s once, finish row; 19 (21-27) sts. Break yarn leaving an end about 12" long. Thread yarn tail onto yarn needle, and remove the remaining sts from the knitting needle, pull tightly to close. Repeat pulling tail through all sts twice.

Finishing -- Fold cast on edge in half and sew 3 (4, 5) ins. from toes leaving just enough room for heel. Then back stitch for 4 sts and cut yarn. Attach your yarn and sewing needle at heels then stitch heel shut.
