A free knitting pattern slipper with a thick double sole is below. This
pattern is easy and the slippers are comfortable.
The first thing that seems to ware out on slippers are the soles. This double sole pattern helps them to last a bit longer and makes them warmer and gives them more cushion to walk on.
It seems I am always making slippers for one member of the family or another. These are great for charities also. This knitting pattern slipper is not a lot of work, just a basic pattern and yet it is always very much appreciated. These are much warmer than the traditional knitted slipper because of the sole having a double thickness.
Below is the free pattern slipper written and in a graph. I make the graph up for me to follow when I make the slippers. It may help you visualize what I am writing and understand the pattern easier.
Row 1 is knit across with a single strand of yarn. On row 2 you began picking up the second strand of yarn for the center 9 stitches. On these stitches you will knit two strands together, only for these stitches.
Basic knitting instructions are (Side of slipper) knit 10 stitches with single strand.
(Slipper sole) Pick up second strand of yarn and knit 9 stitches with double strands.(Other side of slipper) drop second strand and knit next 10 stitches with single strand.
