Sam DIY Knitted Slippers for Women - Using Own Yarn

This Sam slipper kit is for women and uses your own yarn and knitting pins. You will need approximately 7ounces of your own yarn (none is included in this version of the kit) and size 15 needles. This knitted upper design is perfect partner for our felt, suede and rubbers soles. If you're looking for this kit in men's sizes, we have those too.

Our latest knitted slipper is worked mainly in stocking stitch with a stretchy heel section in garter stitch for a great fit. Like the Crossover slipper the design is simple and comfortable for all foot shapes. It can easily be adapted for wide (even very wide) and also narrower feet. Full instructions come with the kit. 

Kit includes:

  • No yarn is included in this kit! See here for the complete Sam slipper kit with Malabrigo Rasta yarn
  • Printed knitting pattern sheet - including correct gauge 
  • 1 pair thick felt insoles AND either 1 pair thick felt outsoles with latex grip OR felt midsole with suede outsole OR felt midsole with rubber outsole
  • super strong thread and a blunt needle for stitching up. 
  • all packed into a handy organza bag, ideal for keeping the finished slippers
