Toddler Sock Slippers

 

This pattern is dedicated to toddler Orphans .. I hope it's used for charityknitting (often - grin!). The heel's knitted on straight needles in garter stitch, then the toe's finished on double-pointed needles like a sock. Finished foot length is 5 ".

Materials:

Worsted wt. Yarn, pref. 2 balls, as yarns are double-stranded throughout
U.S. #6 needles, 'straight' and double-pointed

Gauge:

4 stitches/8 rows/4 garter stitch ridges = 1"

 

Using straight needles and holding 2 strands of yarn together throughout, cast on 22 stitches, leaving a 12" end (for sewing later).
Knit 20 rows = 2 ".
Bind off 1 stitch at the beginning of the next 2 rows = 20 stitches.
Transfer knitting onto double-pointed needles (joining at the center top of the instep) and knit 12 rounds = 2".

Decrease toe:
Round 1: * K2, K2 together, K2, SKP (namely, slip 1, knit 1, pass slip stitch over), K2 * , repeat * to * once more = 16 stitches
Round 2: Knit

Total foot length is 5 ".

Bind off toe using kitchener stitch.

Fold heel in half and sew up back seam using 12" length of yarn.
Make another one .. or more!
