Because adults also need slippers !!

These are the perfect slippers to cosy up with a good book or watching a movie. On that note, Barbara from « She Knits and More » blog calls them « Chillaxing slippers ». I really like this nickname.

In my family, each of us owns their own pair.

Here is a new pair for me:

For these slippers, you would need 2 balls of Cho’7 yarn from Bergère de France (65% combed wool, 35% chlorofiber), for a total of 250m.

If you are lucky enough to find some yarn containing chlorofiber, just grab it, because it is discontinued ! Chlorofiber offers a very good thermal insulation.

I found a few balls remaining at one of my yarn suppliers. They were in a huge trunk together with loads of yarn, but even then, she was able to spot them right away. YEAH !! and a huge THANK YOU !!

I keep these carefully in my stash. They are my very last ones.

Tutorial to knit slippers


  • 2 balls of 150 m each (150 m for 50g) : knitted in double.
  • Needle US 9 or 10 for shoe size of 7 to 9 (woman)

If you need a smaller size (5 or 6): use needle US 8. If you need a bigger size: see a little further down below.

We can see that they stayed in the trunk for a long time 😉

Small tip to choose the yarn : the more polyamide your yarn contains, the longer your slippers will last.

How to build your slippers

Each slipper consists of 3 sections :

  • garter stitches for the sole of the slipper,
  • stockinette stitches for the top of the slippers,
  • and ribbing for the ankle.

If you run out of yarn, you can knit the ribbing in a different color.

If you want to know whether you have enough yarn left, weigh all remaining yarn when you reach the ribbing section and check if you have at least half the starting weight left.

REMINDER : knit your slippers with double yarn, one thread from each ball.

SECTION 1 : Garter Stitches

Cast on 76 sts.

If you need a bigger size slipper: cast on 82 sts and start decreasing with 35 sts up to 17.
