Size Guide

This is a variation on the traditional Grandma’s Slippers, starting at the back of the heel with Judy’s Magic Cast-On. You join one side of the cast-on and knit it as if you were knitting a flat project. Once you have knit a few rows, you will see the back and the foot of the slipper start to form.  Here's a tutorial video on this variation to Judy's Magic Cast-On. 

  • Yarn:​ Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky (50% alpaca, 50% wool; [131 yards 120 meters]) 1 to 2 skeins.

  • Gauge:​ 18 (16) stitches and 38 (32) rows = 4 inches in garter stitch blocked.

Love the yarn but haven’t started the slippers

Can’t answer at this point. Patterylooks a little complicated but i will try.

Lovely slippers but there are errors on the pattern

These ate unique and are making up to be soft, thick slippers. There are, however, several errors on the pattern. I think they are just oversights and another editing will take care of that. Experienced knitters should be able to work their way through them but beginners are going to be stumped.

Thank you for the feedback. We've updated the pattern to v1.2 to eliminate ambiguities and make minor fixes to the instructions.
