  1. I, too, don’t understand the instructions for row 1 “sl1 (slip tog)…what am I slipping together?

  2. lizpoire_56@hotmail.com says:

    Instructions not real clear and jumps from row 23 to the 49th row

  3. Patricia Kietzke says:

    My pattern is easier, too, and turns out better.

  4. Gloria Butler says:

    The pattern I have is way, way, easier and looks just as nice if not better…..

  5. I have come across many patterns where the first stitch is “slipped” to the opposite needle and not worked. This creates a smooth edge. In the above instructions I almost think the (slip tog) is a typo and not instructions to knit 2 stitches together. When you add the stitches in the first row you come up with the original 34. However, further on in the pattern there are clear instructions to decrease by knitting 2 stitches together. Hope this helps:)

  6. Not very clear about instructions

  7. What is S1.1, not familiar with this one?

  8. susan haller says:

    please explain Sl.1(slip tog) I would like to make these slipper for xmass

  9. Kathleen Heseltine says:

    From the comments shown here there is quite a bit of confusion about those first two rows and the Sl.1 sitch at the beginning. I admit that I too am confused and I would love to make these slippers. Has anyone made them that could clear up these instructions?

  10. you did not answer the question: what does s1.1 mean in the instructions, slip 1 twice than knit together?

  11. Karen Rooney says:

    Could you please tell me what size these slippers are. I need a size 10 slipper

    Thanks

  12. Reta Powers says:

    the slippers can be knit to fit any length foot. just knit as long as what the foot is.

  13. These would not stay on your feet if you wore them to bed. Look for a pattern with straps.More attractive,too.

  14. I would love to make these slippers, however as a beginner to intermediate knitter I don’t quite understand how to do some of the instructions, such as Sl.l (slip together). Does this mean to slip st the first ch & then 2 together, or 2 together from the start? Also what size do these slippers fit. Are they just for adults or can you make them for children. If for adults what size are they & if for children is there a pattern for them. I really want to make these so please let me know the answers to these questions. Thank you. I like them very much & they do look very easy to make.

  15. what does the slip together mean. pattern says sl. 1.

  16. what size needle for these slippers

  17. What size are these slippers?????????????

  18. What is the gauge?

  19. These are so cute – a lil ole skool but they work … I’m going to use solid wool colors.
    thanks for sharing – their quick Christmas gifts for the family n local hospitals.

  20. Just literally finished making these, and now my feet are toasty warm! Lovely project :)

  21. Nope, no rows missing. Do the math…Rows 1 & 2 equals 2 rows plus 2 x 23 equals 46 plus the 2 equals 48…next row is 49.

  22. When you do the first two rows it asks for you to repeat these same 2 rows 23 times which add up to 46 rows (1 row+2row=2 rows, then 2 rows X 23repeats on 1 and 2=46 rows, then 46 rows + first 2 rows 48 rows) Then you follow row 49 as in pattern above.

  23. I learned to knit these slippers many years ago, when I first started knitting. Have made many for nursing homes, etc. My directions used 2 strands of yarn, and included a separate sole knit with 3 strands of yarn, one of which was pure wool. You can’t get as many stitches as the middle section of slippers, too bulky, but just follow the general length, etc. They seem to last forever!

  24. Are there rows missing? You say to repeat the first 2 rows 23 times then you go to the 49th row-what about the rows inbetween?

  25. Thank you this is great I have been sitting here for an hour looking for this easy pattern..Thank You again…P.Robinson

  26. TYVM very warming…

  27. Thanks

  28. cool slippers, but what does slip together mean? is it a decrease?

  29. Cute… but what size are these? I wear a size 8 womens shoe… will these fit me?
    Thanx!

    • I wish your instructions were more clear you do not explain the first part of sl 1 (sl 2 tog.) what two are you slipping together??????
