Foldover Garter Stitch Slippers

These Foldover Garter Stitch Slippers are easy, fast, and oh-so-snuggly. Knitted with super bulky yarn, this slipper knitting pattern knits up quickly and creates soft, squishy slippers that are luxurious and warm. This free knitting pattern is also super easy, since it's knitted all in one piece and employs only simple garter stitch. While this easy knitting pattern is only provided in two sizes, it would be easy to customize it by adding or subtracting a few stitches to suit your needs. Additionally, these slippers look fabulous in purple but would look great in other colors, too.

The garter stitch pattern and foldover construction make this a perfect pattern to donate hospitals or nursing home. You could use puffy paint or leather sewn on the bottom to make them slip resistant. This would also make a quick last minute gift for someone.

When I was a little girl, I knew that at Christmas time I would be getting a pair of these from my paternal Grandmother. I guess I was in my early 20's when she decided to stop making these. This may or may not be the exact pattern, but I belive I will pick the tradition back up with my grands.

Oww, these are beautiful and look warm ad comfortable, am definitely sharing this pattern with a friend that loves knitting to have a pair made for me. Brilliant idea I had not seen anything like this. Thank you.

I am excited to try this pattern out! I've wanted to make house slippers forever! I've also wanted to give them as gifts but have been reluctant to do so without them having some kind of sole to them to keep them from slipping. I found an online tutorial for that part so I'm all set! Let's go!!!

These are super easy and they knit up very quick. There are great photos that show you construction of the slippers. Yes, something to make the bottoms non-skid is a great plus. I'm only giving this 4 stars for this simple reason .... the yarn size and needle size is notated on this page on allfreeknitting, but not in the actual pattern. Be sure and pencil in a notation to this basic information on your printout. My guess is that this is a 2 hour project, from materials gathering to end.

I was so excited when I found this pattern! My Gram used to knit a pattern like this and I've always had fond memories of her fold-over slippers. I have been looking for a pattern like this for quite some time. I can't wait to knit a pair for my Mum, as she's really been wanting a new pair. A tip that I always like to do when I make slippers is to get some cheap fabric paint (the puffy kind in the squeeze tube) and put dots or lines on the soles so that they aren't too slippery if you are wearing them on hardwood or linoleum flooring.

These are so quick to make, and they make great stocking stuffers or bazaar items. The pattern is easy to alter for different sizes, so if a person has a wider than usual foot, no problem! Just add a few stitches to your width. I was also concerned with the slippers being too slippery (no pun intended). You can buy a special coating to help with this. Some people have used puff paint, plastic dip, non-skid backing for rugs, and even silicone sealant. Moogly has a great article on making slippers less slippery.

Has anyone made these? I have thought about making slippers several times but most people I knit for have hard wood floors. Is there a scuff or something I could put on the bottom to at least give some traction? It would need to be washable, that's a given. Thanks for any information. I have seen these in a baby pattern. They are darling any size it seems.

Why do you leave a star rating if you haven't made it yet? It doesn't make sense to make it look like a semi bad rating when you have not tested it.

The site won't let you leave a comment without a star rating. I leave high ratings if I like the look of something and can follow the pattern. I can usually tell if it's a keeper just from that, but I've been knitting a while.
