Knit yourself and your spouse a matching pair of adorable slippers for the holidays using this Cozy Christmas Knit Slipper Pattern. This knitted slipper pattern features festive colors for Christmas season, which can be switched out to other colors if you celebrate a different holiday. You'll love how perfect this knit slipper pattern is for sitting around the fire with your family beneath the twinkling holiday lights as you share good food, good stories, and good cheer. Try knitting a pair for each member of the family to serve as stocking stuffers!
Do not cut yarn after each color stripe; instead carry unused colors loosely up inside sock. One skein of each color will yield 1 pair of Women's AND 1 pair of Men's slipper socks.

SPECIAL TECHNIQUE: GRAFTING WITH KITCHENER STITCH
To graft 2 pieces together using Kitchener stitch, hold both needles together in your left hand, with WS facing inward. Cut a long tail from the working yarn (about 4 times the width of the fabric to be joined), and thread tail into yarn needle.
Step 1: Insert yarn needle purlwise into first st on front needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
Step 2: Insert yarn needle knitwise into first st on the back needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
Step 3: Insert yarn needle knitwise into first st on front needle and pull it through, then drop this st off knitting needle.
Step 4: Insert yarn needle purlwise into first st on front needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
Step 5: Insert yarn needle purlwise into first st on the back needle and pull it through, then drop this st off knitting needle.
Step 6: Insert yarn needle knitwise into first st on the back needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
Repeat steps 3-6 only, pausing to pull sts taut and neaten the seam after every couple of inches. Be sure to always pause after a step 6 so as to not lose your place.
When 2 sts remain, work step 3, then step 5, then fasten off.
Weave in all loose ends.
- Slip next two stitches knitwise to right needle, insert point of left needle through front of sts, knit these sts together through back loop.
