House slippers are indispensable for cold floors. Wouldn’t it be nice to knit a pair that fit you like a glove.
These 6 knitting patterns for slippers are selected because they are free and feature a range of knitting techniques.
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. If you would like the instructions written down, leave a comment below.
1. 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 of 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Seamless Salomas Slippers
Designed by Susan Busbee and Megan Williams.
This pair of slippers is made up of a combination of ribbing and garter stitch. Easy to knit and really stretchy.

5. Cotton Garter Stitch Slippers
Designed by the Pattern Family.
I found this video tutorial for a garter stitch slippers. It is similar to the first two patterns in this list. The difference is the way the garter stitch is used.
The designer did not write down the instructions. Do you need some transcription?
6. Garter Stitch Slippers with Buttons
The designer demonstrated how she knit a garter stitch rectangle and shape it into a slipper with cute triangular flaps embellished with buttons and picot edge.
Again, I did not find any written instructions for this video tutorial but there is an English transcription for the video.
