Straight Needle Slippers Knitting Pattern

If you’re new to knitting, most slipper patterns might seem intimidating. Most patterns require double point needles and intricate toe and heel shaping.  The shape is created by some simple decreases. These slipper socks are knit using a combination of rib stitch (knit, purl)  and garter stitches.
