I just want to vent about my experience with these slippers. I used size 8 needles and double stranded red heart plush in red, knitted in the stockinette stitch. I also only cast on 35, because I was making size 6 slippers. Don't do this. I had to rip it out twice on one slipper and I'm so pissed at the yarn that I haven't bothered to make another one yet. Completely my fault, I love the pattern! Just don't use that yarn!

i think i have a problem.. i didn't understand this part:
-k2tog for one row
-k2tog for another row

this means i will decrease from the begining and the end of one row? or i will decrease in the middle of each two rows? and how many?

i am completely lost.

what you need to do is decrease all the way across the row.  so you will have half as many stitches.  then you'll do it one more time, so it will be half as many stitches again.
i hope that helps!

Tinybits, nah I just used sucky yarn I think. The pattern is easy to adapt, it was a gift so I didn't have the persons foot right there with me but I knew her size. The problem was I used plush yarn. Maybe I'm just not skilled enough yet, but it seemed like a huge pain in the neck for a slipper, no matter how cushy and wonderful it felt on (and it does!). The yarn is really just these fluffy pieces loosely held together and when I decided to double strand it and use small needles it made keeping track of which strand was which difficult and I had a few problems---like a tiny part of one strand would get left out of a stitch and not get picked up til a few rows later, which resulted in this weird bunchy effect right where the bottom of the foot would be (not comfy). I was just trying to warn those who looked at the plush yarn and thought it would be perfect for this project (like me).

This looks cool!  Would anyone know how I can improvise this pattern into a slip-in pattern?  Just like those bedroom slippers?
