Flat Knit Slippers Knitting Pattern- perfect for beginners & they make a great gift!
The weather finally cooled off here in NY, which means it's time for chunky knits. Slippers are a cold-weather essential and it doesn't get much cozier than these!
If you're new to knitting, most slipper patterns might seem intimidating. Most patterns require double point needles and heel shaping. This Flat Knit Slippers Knitting Pattern is ideal for beginner knitters or anyone looking for a fast & easy project. These slippers are knit flat on single point needles using only knit and purl stitches. There's no heel shaping or anything fancy. You can adjust the size to your foot length as you knit.
These slippers are knit using super bulky yarn (Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Kale) and large needles which makes this pattern a quick knit!
(Note- I've had many requests for a men's flat knit slipper pattern that's suitable for beginners. Click here for the Men's Flat Knit Slipper Knitting Pattern)
