SOLES (make 2)

Each boot slipper is worked in two pieces: sole and upper. Both pieces are worked in Garter st (knit every row). Decreases and increases are worked to shape each piece. The upper is worked with larger needles and A. The sole is worked with smaller needles and two strands of B held together. Wind the skein of B into two separate balls before beginning.

  1. Beginning at heel, with smaller needles and 2 strands of B held together, cast on 9 sts.

  2. Rows 1 and 2 (increase rows): kfb, knit to end of row—11 sts at the end of Row 2.

    Work even in Garter st (knit every row) until piece measures about 4½ (5, 5½)” (11.5 (12.5, 14) cm) from beginning.

    Repeat Row 1 four times—15 sts. Work even in Garter st until piece measures about 8 (9, 10)” (20.5 (23, 25.5) cm) from beginning.

  3. Next Row (decrease row): k2tog, knit to end of row—14 sts. Repeat last row (decrease row) 5 more times—9 sts. Bind off.

  3. Row 2 (decrease row): knit to 2 sts before first marker, skp, slip marker, k1, slip marker, skp, knit to end of row—23 (25, 27) sts.

    Repeat last row (decrease row) 4 (5, 6) more times, removing markers as you work the last row—15 sts.

    Work 4 rows even in Garter st. Bind off


 For best results, use A and whip stitch for all seaming.

  1. Fold each upper lengthwise along cast-on edge and mark center for front of foot. With detachable markers or safety pins, attach front center of sole to the center marker of upper. Beginning at back center (heel) of sole, sew cast-on edge of upper to outer edge of sole. Sew back seam of boot slipper from base to top.

  2. Optional elastic: beginning at back of slipper, weave a length of elastic through stitches around top edge of boot slipper and pin the ends of the elastic together. Weave a second length of elastic 1–2” (2.5–5cm) below the first (just above the last decrease row) and pin the ends of the elastic together. Place slipper on foot. Adjust elastic lengths so that they fit comfortably. With sewing needle and thread, sew ends of elastic together. Repeat for other slipper. Weave in ends.

Looks simple enough to make, but the sizing seems to cover a lot of territory. There's a big difference between a size 6 and a size 9. I haven't worked with this yarn, so I don't know... is it really furry enough so that the sizes don't matter that much? I have a size six foot and don't want to flop around in a slipper that's way too big, but the size 3 - 6 might be too small.
