Looking for free knitting patterns for slippers? The first five slipper patterns use garter stitch because it produces a thick squishy texture.
Three of the patterns are Youtube tutorials without any written instructions. I think they are quite easy to follow so I decided to include them. I may transcribe them later when I have time. 🙂
Simple garter stitch slippers
Designed by Hanna Levaniemi.
I tried this pattern and really enjoyed it. The slipper starts out like a garter stitch square with a little shaping for the toe. The heel is formed by seaming up the cast-on edge. I think I can substitute this with a Turkish cast on and continue with knitting back and forth.
The instructions could include a few more pictures on how the slippers are seamed together.
Seam up the toe and crochet the 2 sides of the squares together to form the instep. Quick and fun.

Slippers with 5 leaves
Designed by Sercan Senay.
This pair of slippers is quite similar to the simple garter stitch slippers. The difference lays in the shaping of the toes. This one is done using short rows.

South Marysburgh slippers
Designed by Sam Lamb.
Unlike the previous slipper patterns which are in garter stitch, this one is in stockinette. I like the shape a lot. It requires the knitter to know how to pick up stitches and knit short rows.
The instructions were surprisingly easy and it is a quick knit. Gauge is important. Do take time to check gauge.

Cotton garter stitch slippers
Designed by the Pattern Family.
Many knitters learnt how to knit using Youtube. I found this video tutorial for a garter stitch slippers. The difference between this one and the first two is the way the garter stitch is used.
Unfortunately, the designer did not write down the instructions. I may transcribe it if I can find some time. 😛
