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.

    It says to work one row after cast on. Work in what? Knit, purl? Honestly that whole opening section needs some work. If you’ve never done toe up socks before you’re kinda screwed.

    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!

    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.

    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!
