Cranberry Slipper Boots


(21 Votes)


I absolutely love knit slipper patterns, but sometimes they don't give me enough coverage - what about ankles? Those need to stay warm, too. If you've found yourself in the same boat, I invite you to try knitting up a pair of these incredibly cozy Cranberry Slipper Boots. Big enough to slide on over a pair of socks, these toasty slippers are worked flat with short rows shaping the top of the foot. Best of all, they go all the way up to the ankles for an additional layer of warmth.

The link to this pattern is broken. Google says it can't find the homepage this is on.

I love these slipper socks. I am a new knitter and one thing on this pattern stumps me. The issue starts on Row 17: sl1, 3 - C1F, ssk, turn. What does the 3 - C1F mean? I know what C1F is - don't know what the 3 - in front of it means. Help please. Thanks...Jillian

It must mean C1F three times. I hope this helps.

C1F means cable one front.The number in front indicates how many time you do this stitch. so you will cable one front 3 times in a row.

How many stitches would you add to make one large enough for a man? And would I have to adjust anything when I got to the short rows, such as row 14??

Be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the page - it cleared up a little confusion on a couple of things for me. Cute slippers and easy to make!

It's been awhile since I've knitted, can you tell me what ssk is? It doesn't seem to be explained

Slip slip knit or SSK is a basic way to decrease stitches. It makes a decrease that slants to the left and is often paired with knit two together, which is a right-slanting decrease. To execute this decrease, slip the first stitch as if to knit, slip the second stitch as if to knit, then slide the left-hand needle into the front part of both stitches and knit them together.

ssk is the same as knit 2 together through back of loop. Much easier. Abbreviation would be k2togtbl

rosieandtess - You are incorrect in saying ssk is the same as K2togtbl. ssk is done one stitch at a time slipping as if to knit so the stitches slant a different way than K2togtbl. The reply above your comment explains the step correctly.

ssk is a fairly new abbreviation, but for those of us that have been knitting for 40-50+ years it just replaces the old k2togtbl. contrary to what has been stated in these comments it is the same thing but in 1 easy step instead of over complicating things.

C1B: slip st to cable needle & hold in back of work, k off left needle, k st off cable needle. C1F: slip st to cable needle & hold in front of work, k st off left needle, k off cable needle. See the pattern just above the cast on instrution

What does c1B and c1F mean? Marcia

c1B means you get a cable needle and slip the next stitch onto it then knit the required no. of sts, usually 2, 3 or 4 then knit the stirch from your cable needle c1f is the same but you leave the next stitch in front.

I wish we could see the whole slipper and not just the toes.

There are several additional pictures on the pattern page that give a better view of the whole slipper. Hope this helps someone.

saphyreslady, I can understand your frustration. I've come back to knitting and I'm trying all sorts of new things, plus I knit Combination so I have to adapt the patterns to fit that style. But there are lots of videos on YouTube that have helped me tremendously! I have learned so much. You may have to look at a few before you find one that helps the most, but I have been really happy. Good Luck and don't give up. Many nights I sit in front of my computer runnung the videos or pausing while I knit. LOL

Ihave to seriously wonder who thinks this pattern is "easy". I would put this in intermediate because of the cable (yes i know its only one stitch) and short rows This is beyond what someone who has limited experience or talent would consider easy.

Is there something you can do to the bottom of the slippers to make them non slip?

Hi Spizzz, Yes there is! You can purchase suede soles from online knitting sites/stores, or much less expensive option is to buy the vinyl shelf liner that comes in a roll and can be purchased at Dollar stores, Target, Grocery stores etc. That is what I use on all of my family's slippers. No skidding around. I can send photo if you like. I just cut mine in a dog bone shape & stitch to slipper bottoms.

You can buy a product called sock stop and it is a liquid rubber turn the socks over make a pattern of sock stop (I do buttons about .5") and leave to dry overnight. You then have rubberised non slip socks
