Chunky Slippers FREE Pattern

Lately, we’ve been taking some time to weed through our older free patterns that need a little update and having them reknit for new photos or if the original yarn has been discontinued. I love taking good, solid patterns and giving them a mini makeover to match our current aesthetics. Our most recent redo was the Chunky Slipper Pattern from a few years ago. I whipped these up over two days in Wool of the Andes Bulky Navy and love how they fit. Not too bulky, but perfect slipped over a pair of socks for around the house on cold mornings.

I’ve been very motivated to find a good slipper pattern + yarn combination since I moved into a lovely (but drafty) 1911 farmhouse in Portland last month and these Chunky Slippers definitely fit the bill. Any bulky weight yarn would work and I was able to get 1 pair out of one ball of Wool of the Andes Bulky with at least 1/3 of a ball leftover. I’m sensing tons of opportunities for stripped slippers out of the remnants! I’m definitely going to pick a coordinating Wool of the Andes Bulky color so I that I can play around with that idea. Maybe the ever-chipper Yonder color?

Hint, hint: these would make excellent last minute gifts! I’m thinking about knitting a small basketful of these to have by the front door or my drafty ole’ house.

  1. Thank you so much for the up-date.
    I needed it so badly!!
    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all!!

  2. Too bad almost all of your pattersn are only sized for women! You do have male knitters too! A revised pattern in this day and age should include more than just directions for female knitters!

  3. I love these and would love to make them! I am a beginning knitter but have made many hats. Never tried slippers. I have looked over the pattern and would LOVE a video to help my with some new concepts:)

    • I guess the part I really need help with is the Instep portion. I cant seem to picture what Im supposed to do.

  4. Spent the Weekend figuring these out! Super easy once I got the hang of them! Now everyone in my family has requested a pair! Thanks so much!
