AOK Corral features a simple one-piece slipper pattern. Only one color of yarn is required, and once the pattern is knitted, the sides are stitched together to form the slipper. The top edge of the slipper is folded over to create a cuff at approximately ankle height.

The felted mukluk pattern from Canadian Living is a higher style boot slipper that uses different colors of yarn for a multicolored finish. The mukluk reaches approximately mid-calf height when it is complete. Once the knitting is finished, the slipper should be machine washed along with a pear of jeans to create the felted effect and cover the stitches. The final part of the pattern contains instructions for an optional decorative tassel at the back of the boot. Canadian Living also suggests stitching on a suede or leather sole so the slippers can be worn outside.

Along with slipper boots, patterns for many other styles of slippers and slipper socks are available at AllFreeKnitting.com, including a Fair Isle style slipper with decorative designs on top of the foot.
