Original Pattern

The original Duffers slipper pattern.

This was the first slipper pattern that I made available for sale. It is a simple to knit, felted slipper pattern with only 19 rows of knitting per slipper.  The slippers are knitted flat and then sewn together across the bottom and back of heel.

The pattern gives instructions for three adult sizes.

To fit sizes: Approx. UK sizes 3, 5, & 7   (US sizes approx 5 ½, 7 ½  ,9 ½, )

Finished foot lengths approx. 10 1/2″, 11″ & 12″  ( 27cm, 29 cm, 31 cm)

Yarn: Any pure untreated wool that will felt in a bulky weight or you can use a DK or worsted yarn held double throughout. Approx. quantities are 150m for the single colour slippers or 100m of each colour for the two colour ones.  If you are using DK or worsted yarn held double you will need double the quantities.

Suggested yarns are Elann Peruvian Highland Bulky or Cascade 220 held double.

Needles: 8mm or size to get you to a tension of 3 sts / 1″


Duffers – original pattern is available to buy for £1.50 (plus vat if applicable)

You can download a copy from Love Knitting, Ravelry or Etsy.

The pattern is also available in German and French.

  1. Hi Mindie,
    I live in Victoria British Columbia and purchased your wonderful pattern 3 years ago. I have made several pairs for my daughter and I and would like to make them for local Christmas craft fairs and perhaps Etsy. I am writing to ask your permission to do so. I tried to contact you via your contact info but I was unsuccessful. I hope it is okay to message you this way. Thanks for a great pattern! Sally
